Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 27:4

_ _ make ... savory meat — perhaps to revive and strengthen him for the duty; or rather, “as eating and drinking” were used on all religious occasions, he could not convey the right, till he had eaten of the meat provided for the purpose by him who was to receive the blessing [Adam Clarke] (compare Genesis 18:7).

_ _ that my soul may bless thee — It is difficult to imagine him ignorant of the divine purpose (compare Genesis 25:23). But natural affection, prevailing through age and infirmity, prompted him to entail the honors and powers of the birthright on his elder son; and perhaps he was not aware of what Esau had done (Genesis 25:34).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 27:4

And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring [it] to me, that I may eat; that my (a) soul may bless thee before I die.

(a) The carnal affection he had for his son made him forget what God spoke to his wife. (Genesis 25:23).

Cross-Reference Topical ResearchStrong's Concordance
that I may eat:
The blessing, says Dr. A. Clarke, which Isaac was to confer on his son, was a species of divine right, and must be communicated with appropriate ceremonies. As eating and drinking were used among the Asiatics on almost all religious occasions, and especially in making and confirming covenants, it is reasonable to suppose, that something of this kind was essentially necessary on this occasion; and that Isaac could not convey the right, till he had eaten of the meat provided for the purpose by him who was to receive the blessing.
