1When Isaac was old and his eyes were so weak that he could no longer see, he called for Esau his older son and said to him, "My son." "Here I am," he answered.1When Isaac was old and his eyes were dim so that he could not see, he called Esau his older son and said to him, “My son”; and he answered, “Here I am.”1Now it came about, when Isaac was old and his eyes were too dim to see, that he called his older son Esau and said to him, "My son." And he said to him, "Here I am."1And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.1When Isaac was old and his eyes were so weak that he could not see, he called his older son Esau and said to him, "My son." And he answered, "Here I am."
2Isaac said, "I am now an old man and don't know the day of my death.2He said, “Behold, I am old; I do not know the day of my death.2Isaac said, "Behold now, I am old and I do not know the day of my death.2And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death:2He said, "Look, I am old and do not know the day of my death.
3Now then, get your equipment--your quiver and bow--and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.3Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me,3"Now then, please take your gear, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me;3Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;3Take your hunting gear, your quiver and bow, and go out in the field to hunt some game for me.
4Prepare me the kind of tasty food I like and bring it to me to eat, so that I may give you my blessing before I die."4and prepare for me delicious food, such as I love, and bring it to me so that I may eat, that my soul may bless you before I die.”4and prepare a savory dish for me such as I love, and bring it to me that I may eat, so that my soul may bless you before I die."4And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die.4Then make me a delicious meal that I love and bring it to me to eat, so that I can bless you before I die."

5Now Rebekah was listening as Isaac spoke to his son Esau. When Esau left for the open country to hunt game and bring it back,5Now Rebekah was listening when Isaac spoke to his son Esau. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game and bring it,5Rebekah was listening while Isaac spoke to his son Esau. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game to bring home,5And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son. And Esau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.5Now Rebekah was listening to what Isaac said to his son Esau. So while Esau went to the field to hunt some game to bring in,
6Rebekah said to her son Jacob, "Look, I overheard your father say to your brother Esau,6Rebekah said to her son Jacob, “I heard your father speak to your brother Esau,6Rebekah said to her son Jacob, "Behold, I heard your father speak to your brother Esau, saying,6And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying,6Rebekah said to her son Jacob, "Listen!

11Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, "But my brother Esau is a hairy man while I have smooth skin.11But Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, “Behold, my brother Esau is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man.11Jacob answered his mother Rebekah, "Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man and I am a smooth man.11And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man:11Jacob answered Rebekah his mother, "Look, my brother Esau is a hairy man, but I am a man with smooth skin.
12What if my father touches me? I would appear to be tricking him and would bring down a curse on myself rather than a blessing."12Perhaps my father will feel me, and I shall seem to be mocking him and bring a curse upon myself and not a blessing.”12"Perhaps my father will feel me, then I will be as a deceiver in his sight, and I will bring upon myself a curse and not a blessing."12My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.12Suppose my father touches me. Then I will be revealed to him as a deceiver and bring a curse rather than a blessing on myself."
13His mother said to him, "My son, let the curse fall on me. Just do what I say; go and get them for me."13His mother said to him, “Let your curse be on me, my son; only obey my voice, and go, bring them to me.”13But his mother said to him, "Your curse be on me, my son; only obey my voice, and go, get them for me."13And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son: only obey my voice, and go fetch me them.13His mother said to him, "Your curse be on me, my son. Just obey me and go get them for me."
14So he went and got them and brought them to his mother, and she prepared some tasty food, just the way his father liked it.14So he went and took them and brought them to his mother, and his mother prepared delicious food, such as his father loved.14So he went and got them, and brought them to his mother; and his mother made savory food such as his father loved.14And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved.14So he went and got the goats and brought them to his mother, and his mother made the delicious food his father loved.

15Then Rebekah took the best clothes of Esau her older son, which she had in the house, and put them on her younger son Jacob.15Then Rebekah took the best garments of Esau her older son, which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob her younger son.15Then Rebekah took the best garments of Esau her elder son, which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob her younger son.15And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:15Then Rebekah took the best clothes of her older son Esau, which were in the house, and had her younger son Jacob wear them.

19Jacob said to his father, "I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you told me. Please sit up and eat some of my game, so that you may give me your blessing."19Jacob said to his father, “I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you told me; now sit up and eat of my game, that your soul may bless me.”19Jacob said to his father, "I am Esau your firstborn; I have done as you told me.

I have done as you told me. Please sit up and eat some of my game so that you may bless me."
20Isaac asked his son, "How did you find it so quickly, my son?" "The LORD your God gave me success," he replied.20But Isaac said to his son, “How is it that you have found it so quickly, my son?” He answered, “Because the LORD your God granted me success.”20Isaac said to his son, "How is it that you have it so quickly, my son?" And he said, "Because the LORD your God caused it to happen to me."20And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the LORD thy God brought it to me.20But Isaac said to his son, "How did you ever find it so quickly, my son?" He replied, "Because the LORD your God worked it out for me."
21Then Isaac said to Jacob, "Come near so I can touch you, my son, to know whether you really are my son Esau or not."21Then Isaac said to Jacob, “Please come near, that I may feel you, my son, to know whether you are really my son Esau or not.”21Then Isaac said to Jacob, "Please come close, that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not."21And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not.21Then Isaac said to Jacob, "Please come closer so I can touch you, my son. Are you really my son Esau or not?"
22Jacob went close to his father Isaac, who touched him and said, "The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau."22So Jacob went near to Isaac his father, who felt him and said, “The voice is Jacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.”22So Jacob came close to Isaac his father, and he felt him and said, "The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau."22And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.22So Jacob came closer to his father Isaac.

30After Isaac finished blessing him, and Jacob had scarcely left his father's presence, his brother Esau came in from hunting.30As soon as Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, when Jacob had scarcely gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, Esau his brother came in from his hunting.30Now 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.30And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.30As soon as Isaac had finished blessing Jacob and Jacob had left the presence of his father Isaac, his brother Esau arrived from the hunt.
31He too prepared some tasty food and brought it to his father. Then he said to him, "My father, please sit up and eat some of my game, so that you may give me your blessing."31He also prepared delicious food and brought it to his father. And he said to his father, “Let my father arise and eat of his son’s game, that you may bless me.”31Then he also made savory food, and brought it to his father; and he said to his father, "Let my father arise and eat of his son's game, that you may bless me."31And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son's venison, that thy soul may bless me.31He had also made some delicious food and brought it to his father.

He took away my birthright, and behold, now he has taken away my blessing.” Then he said, “Have you not reserved a blessing for me?”36Then he said, "Is he not rightly named Jacob, for he has supplanted me these two times? He took away my birthright, and behold, now he has taken away my blessing." And he said, "Have you not reserved a blessing for me?"36And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing.

Then he asked, "Haven't you saved a blessing for me?"
37Isaac answered Esau, "I have made him lord over you and have made all his relatives his servants, and I have sustained him with grain and new wine. So what can I possibly do for you, my son?"37Isaac answered and said to Esau, “Behold, I have made him lord over you, and all his brothers I have given to him for servants, and with grain and wine I have sustained him. What then can I do for you, my son?”37But Isaac replied to Esau, "Behold, I have made him your master, and all his relatives I have given to him as servants; and with grain and new wine I have sustained him. Now as for you then, what can I do, my son?"37And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?37But Isaac answered Esau: "Look, I have made him a master over you, have given him all of his relatives as his servants, and have sustained him with grain and new wine. What then can I do for you, my son?"
38Esau said to his father, "Do you have only one blessing, my father? Bless me too, my father!" Then Esau wept aloud.38Esau said to his father, “Have you but one blessing, my father?

But when you rebel, you will break his yoke from your neck.
41Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, "The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob."41Now Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him, and Esau said to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are approaching; then I will kill my brother Jacob.”41So Esau bore a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him; and Esau said to himself, "The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob."41And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.41Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. And Esau determined in his heart: "The days of mourning for my father are approaching; then I will kill my brother Jacob."
