Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
and 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."

King James Bible
And 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.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
Then make me a delicious meal that I love and bring it to me to eat, so that I can bless you before I die."
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

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.
