5 ¶ Rebekah° was listening° while Isaac° spoke° to his son° Esau°. So when Esau° went° to the field° to hunt° for game° to bring° [home], 6 aRebekah° said° to her son° Jacob°, “Behold°, I heard° your father° speak° to your brother° Esau°, saying°, 7 ‘Bring° me [some] game° and prepare° a savory° dish° for me, that I may eat°, and bless° you in the presence° of the LORD° before° my death°.’ 8 Now° therefore, my son°, alisten° to Ime IIas I command° you. 9 Go° now° to the flock° and Ibring° me two° choice° IIyoung°° goats°° from there°, that I may prepare° them [as] a savory° dish° for your father°, such° as he loves°. 10 Then you shall bring° [it] to your father°, that he may eat°, so° that he may bless° you before° his death°.” 11 Jacob° Ianswered° his mother° Rebekah°, “Behold°, Esau° my brother° is a ahairy° man° and I am a smooth° man°. 12 aPerhaps° my father° will feel° me, then I will be as a Ideceiver° in his sight°, and I will bring° upon myself a curse° and not a blessing°.” 13 But his mother° said° to him, “Your curse° be on me, my son°; only° aobey° my voice°, and go°, get° [them] for me.” 14 So he went° and got° [them], and brought° [them] to his mother°; and his mother° made° savory° food° such° as his father° loved°. 15 Then Rebekah° took° the Ibest° agarments° of Esau° her elder° son°, which° were with her in the house°, and put° them on Jacob° her younger° son°. 16 And she put° the skins° of the Iyoung°° goats°° on his hands° and on the smooth° part° of his neck°. 17 She also gave° the savory° food° and the bread°, which° she had made°, Ito her son° Jacob°.

30 ¶ Now it came° about, as soon° as Isaac° had finished° blessing° Jacob°, and Jacob° had hardly°° gone° out from the presence° of Isaac° his father°, that Esau° his brother° came° in from his hunting°. 31 Then he also° made° savory° food°, and brought° it to his father°; and he said° to his father°, “aLet my father° arise° and eat° of his son’s° game°, that Ibyou may bless° me.” 32 Isaac° his father° said° to him, “aWho° are you?” And he said°, “I am your son°, byour firstborn°, Esau°.” 33 Then Isaac° Itrembled° violently°°°°, and said°, “aWho° was he then° that hunted° game° and brought° [it] to me, so that I ate° of all° [of it] before° you came°, and blessed° him? bYes°, and he shall be blessed°.” 34 When Esau° heard° the words° of his father°, ahe cried° out with an exceedingly° great° and bitter° cry°, and said° to his father°, “Bless° me, [even] me also°, O my father°!” 35 And he said°, “aYour brother° came° deceitfully° and has taken° away your blessing°.” 36 Then he said°, “IIs he not rightly named°° aJacob°, for he has supplanted° me these° two° times°?

Esau bringeth venison.
30 ¶ And it came to pass,² as soon as² Isaacº had made an endºª of blessingºª² Jacob,º and Jacobº was² yetº scarce¹ª gone outºª from²² the presenceº of Isaacº his father,º that Esauº his brotherº came inºª from his hunting.º² 31 And he² also² had madeºª savoury meat,º and brought² it¹ª unto his father,º and saidºª unto his father,º Let my fatherº arise,ºª and eatºª of his son'sº venison,º² that² thy soulº may blessºª me. 32 And Isaacº his fatherº saidºª unto him, Who² [art] thou?² And he said,ºª I² [am] thy son,º thy firstbornº Esau.º
33 And Isaacº trembledºª very¹ exceedingly,ºº²² and said,ºª Who?² whereº [is] he² that hath takenºª venison,º and broughtºª [it] me, and I have eatenºª of all²² before² thou camest,ºª and have blessedºª him? yea,² [and] he shall be² blessed.ºª
Esau complaineth, and by importunity obtaineth a blessing.
34 And when Esauº heardºª² the wordsº of his father,º he criedºª with a greatº and² exceedingº bitterº cry,º and saidºª unto his father,º Blessºª me, [even] me² also,² O my father.º 35 And he said,ºª Thy brotherº cameºª with subtilty,º and hath taken awayºª thy blessing.º 36 And he said,ºª Is not he rightlyº namedººª Jacob?º for he hath supplanted² me¹ª theseº two times:º he took awayºª² my birthright;º and, behold,² now² he hath taken awayºª my blessing.º And he said,ºª Hast thou not² reservedºª a blessingº for me? 37 And Isaacº answeredºª and saidºª unto Esau,º Behold,² I have madeºª him thy lord,º and all² his brethrenº have I givenºª to him for servants;º and with cornº and wineº have I sustainedºª him: and what² shall I doºª nowº unto thee, my son?º 38 And Esauº saidºª unto² his father,º Hast thou but oneº blessing,º my father?º blessºª me, [even] me² also,² O my father.º And Esauº lifted upºª his voice,º and wept.ºª 39 And Isaacº his fatherº answeredºª and saidºª unto² him, Behold,² thy dwellingº shall be² the fatnessº² of the earth,º and of the dewº² of heavenº from above;º² 40 And by² thy swordº shalt thou live,ºª and shalt serveºª thy brother;º and it shall come to pass² when² thou shalt have the dominion,ºª that thou shalt breakºª his yokeº from off²² thy neck.º
