Genesis 27


1  And it came to pass,1961 that3588 when Isaac3327 was old,2204 and his eyes5869 were dim,3543 so that he could not see,4480 7200 he called7121 853 Esau6215 his eldest1419 son,1121 and said559 unto413 him, My son:1121 and he said559 unto413 him, Behold,2009 here am I.

2  And he said,559 Behold2009 now,4994 I am old,2204 I know3045 not3808 the day3117 of my death:4194

3  Now6258 therefore take,5375 I pray thee,4994 thy weapons,3627 thy quiver8522 and thy bow,7198 and go out3318 to the field,7704 and take6679 me some venison;6718

4  And make6213 me savory meat,4303 such as834 I love,157 and bring935 it to me, that I may eat;398 that5668 my soul5315 may bless1288 thee before2962 I die.4191

5  And Rebekah7259 heard8085 when Isaac3327 spoke1696 to413 Esau6215 his son.1121 And Esau6215 went1980 to the field7704 to hunt6679 for venison,6718 and to bring935 it.

6  And Rebekah7259 spoke559 unto413 Jacob3290 her son,1121 saying,559 Behold,2009 I heard8085 853 thy father1 speak1696 unto413 Esau6215 thy brother,251 saying,559

7  Bring935 me venison,6718 and make6213 me savory meat,4303 that I may eat,398 and bless1288 thee before6440 the LORD3068 before6440 my death.4194

8  Now6258 therefore, my son,1121 obey8085 my voice6963 according to that which834 I589 command6680 thee.

9  Go1980 now4994 to413 the flock,6629 and fetch3947 me from thence4480 8033 two8147 good2896 kids1423 of the goats;5795 and I will make6213 them savory meat4303 for thy father,1 such as834 he loveth:157

10  And thou shalt bring935 it to thy father,1 that he may eat,398 and that5668 834 he may bless1288 thee before6440 his death.4194

11  And Jacob3290 said559 to413 Rebekah7259 his mother,517 Behold,2005 Esau6215 my brother251 is a hairy8163 man,376 and I595 am a smooth2509 man:376

12  My father1 peradventure194 will feel4959 me, and I shall seem1961 to him5869 as a deceiver;8591 and I shall bring935 a curse7045 upon5921 me, and not3808 a blessing.1293

13  And his mother517 said559 unto him, Upon5921 me be thy curse,7045 my son:1121 only389 obey8085 my voice,6963 and go1980 fetch3947 me them.

14  And he went,1980 and fetched,3947 and brought935 them to his mother:517 and his mother517 made6213 savory meat,4303 such as834 his father1 loved.157

15  And Rebekah7259 took3947 853 goodly2530 raiment899 of her eldest1419 son1121 Esau,6215 which834 were with854 her in the house,1004 and put them upon3847 853 Jacob3290 her younger6996 son:1121

16  And she put3847 the skins5785 of the kids1423 of the goats5795 upon5921 his hands,3027 and upon5921 the smooth2513 of his neck:6677

17  And she gave5414 853 the savory meat4303 and the bread,3899 which834 she had prepared,6213 into the hand3027 of her son1121 Jacob.3290

18  And he came935 unto413 his father,1 and said,559 My father:1 and he said,559 Here2009 am I; who4310 art thou,859 my son?1121

19  And Jacob3290 said559 unto413 his father,1 I595 am Esau6215 thy firstborn;1060 I have done6213 according as834 thou biddest1696 413 me: arise,6965 I pray thee,4994 sit3427 and eat398 of my venison,4480 6718 that5668 thy soul5315 may bless1288 me.

20  And Isaac3327 said559 unto413 his son,1121 How4100 is it2088 that thou hast found4672 it so quickly,4116 my son?1121 And he said,559 Because3588 the LORD3068 thy God430 brought7136 it to6440 me.

21  And Isaac3327 said559 unto413 Jacob,3290 Come near,5066 I pray thee,4994 that I may feel4184 thee, my son,1121 whether thou859 be my very2088 son1121 Esau6215 or518 not.3808

22  And Jacob3290 went near5066 unto413 Isaac3327 his father;1 and he felt4959 him, and said,559 The voice6963 is Jacob's3290 voice,6963 but the hands3027 are the hands3027 of Esau.6215

23  And he discerned5234 him not,3808 because3588 his hands3027 were1961 hairy,8163 as his brother251 Esau's6215 hands:3027 so he blessed1288 him.

24  And he said,559 Art thou859 my very2088 son1121 Esau?6215 And he said,559 I589 am.

25  And he said,559 Bring it near5066 to me, and I will eat398 of my son's1121 venison,4480 6718 that4616 my soul5315 may bless1288 thee. And he brought it near5066 to him, and he did eat:398 and he brought935 him wine,3196 and he drank.8354

26  And his father1 Isaac3327 said559 unto413 him, Come near5066 now,4994 and kiss5401 me, my son.1121

27  And he came near,5066 and kissed5401 him: and he smelled7306 853 the smell7381 of his raiment,899 and blessed1288 him, and said,559 See,7200 the smell7381 of my son1121 is as the smell7381 of a field7704 which834 the LORD3068 hath blessed:1288

28  Therefore God430 give5414 thee of the dew4480 2919 of heaven,8064 and the fatness4924 of the earth,776 and plenty7230 of corn1715 and wine:8492

29  Let people5971 serve5647 thee, and nations3816 bow down7812 to thee: be1933 lord1376 over thy brethren,251 and let thy mother's517 sons1121 bow down7812 to thee: cursed779 be every one that curseth779 thee, and blessed1288 be he that blesseth1288 thee.

30  And it came to pass,1961 as soon as834 Isaac3327 had made an end3615 of blessing1288 853 Jacob,3290 and Jacob3290 was1961 yet389 scarce gone out3318 3318 from4480 854 the presence6440 of Isaac3327 his father,1 that Esau6215 his brother251 came in935 from his hunting.4480 6718

31  And he1931 also1571 had made6213 savory meat,4303 and brought935 it unto his father,1 and said559 unto his father,1 Let my father1 arise,6965 and eat398 of his son's1121 venison,4480 6718 that5668 thy soul5315 may bless1288 me.

32  And Isaac3327 his father1 said559 unto him, Who4310 art thou?859 And he said,559 I589 am thy son,1121 thy firstborn1060 Esau.6215

33  And Isaac3327 trembled2729 very exceedingly,2731 1419 5704 3966 and said,559 Who?4310 where645 is he1931 that hath taken6679 venison,6718 and brought935 it me, and I have eaten398 of all4480 3605 before2962 thou camest,935 and have blessed1288 him? yea,1571 and he shall be1961 blessed.1288

34  And when Esau6215 heard8085 853 the words1697 of his father,1 he cried6817 with a great1419 and5704 exceeding3966 bitter4751 cry,6818 and said559 unto his father,1 Bless1288 me, even me589 also,1571 O my father.1

35  And he said,559 Thy brother251 came935 with subtlety,4820 and hath taken away3947 thy blessing.1293

36  And he said,559 Is not he rightly3588 named7121 8034 Jacob?3290 for he hath supplanted6117 me these2088 two times:6471 he took away3947 853 my birthright;1062 and, behold,2009 now6258 he hath taken away3947 my blessing.1293 And he said,559 Hast thou not3808 reserved680 a blessing1293 for me?

37  And Isaac3327 answered6030 and said559 unto Esau,6215 Behold,2005 I have made7760 him thy lord,1376 and all3605 his brethren251 have I given5414 to him for servants;5650 and with corn1715 and wine8492 have I sustained5564 him: and what4100 shall I do6213 now645 unto thee, my son?1121

38  And Esau6215 said559 unto413 his father,1 Hast thou but one259 blessing,1293 my father?1 bless1288 me, even me589 also,1571 O my father.1 And Esau6215 lifted up5375 his voice,6963 and wept.1058

39  And Isaac3327 his father1 answered6030 and said559 unto413 him, Behold,2009 thy dwelling4186 shall be1961 the fatness4480 4924 of the earth,776 and of the dew4480 2919 of heaven8064 from above;4480 5920

40  And by5921 thy sword2719 shalt thou live,2421 and shalt serve5647 thy brother;251 and it shall come to pass1961 when834 thou shalt have the dominion,7300 that thou shalt break6561 his yoke5923 from off4480 5921 thy neck.6677

41  And Esau6215 hated7852 853 Jacob3290 because of5921 the blessing1293 wherewith834 his father1 blessed1288 him: and Esau6215 said559 in his heart,3820 The days3117 of mourning60 for my father1 are at hand;7126 then will I slay2026 853 my brother251 Jacob.3290

42  And 853 these words1697 of Esau6215 her elder1419 son1121 were told5046 to Rebekah:7259 and she sent7971 and called7121 Jacob3290 her younger6996 son,1121 and said559 unto413 him, Behold,2009 thy brother251 Esau,6215 as touching thee, doth comfort himself,5162 purposing to kill2026 thee.

43  Now6258 therefore, my son,1121 obey8085 my voice;6963 and arise,6965 flee1272 thou to413 Laban3837 my brother251 to Haran;2771

44  And tarry3427 with5973 him a few259 days,3117 until5704 834 thy brother's251 fury2534 turn away;7725

45  Until5704 thy brother's251 anger639 turn away7725 from4480 thee, and he forget7911 853 that which834 thou hast done6213 to him: then I will send,7971 and fetch3947 thee from thence:4480 8033 why4100 should I be deprived7921 also1571 of you both8147 in one259 day?3117

46  And Rebekah7259 said559 to413 Isaac,3327 I am weary6973 of my life2416 because4480 6440 of the daughters1323 of Heth:2845 if518 Jacob3290 take3947 a wife802 of the daughters4480 1323 of Heth,2845 such as these428 which are of the daughters4480 1323 of the land,776 what good4100 shall my life2416 do me?


1 ἐγένετο δὲ μετὰ τὸ γηρᾶσαι Ισαακ καὶ ἠμβλύνθησαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ τοῦ ὁρᾶν καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Ησαυ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ τὸν πρεσβύτερον καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ υἱέ μου καὶ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ ἐγώ

2 καὶ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ γεγήρακα καὶ οὐ γινώσκω τὴν ἡμέραν τῆς τελευτῆς μου

3 νῦν οὖν λαβὲ τὸ σκεῦός σου τήν τε φαρέτραν καὶ τὸ τόξον καὶ ἔξελθε εἰς τὸ πεδίον καὶ θήρευσόν μοι θήραν

4 καὶ ποίησόν μοι ἐδέσματα ὡς φιλῶ ἐγώ καὶ ἔνεγκέ μοι ἵνα φάγω ὅπως εὐλογήσῃ σε ἡ ψυχή μου πρὶν ἀποθανεῖν με

5 Ρεβεκκα δὲ ἤκουσεν λαλοῦντος Ισαακ πρὸς Ησαυ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἐπορεύθη δὲ Ησαυ εἰς τὸ πεδίον θηρεῦσαι θήραν τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ

6 Ρεβεκκα δὲ εἶπεν πρὸς Ιακωβ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς τὸν ἐλάσσω ἰδὲ ἐγὼ ἤκουσα τοῦ πατρός σου λαλοῦντος πρὸς Ησαυ τὸν ἀδελφόν σου λέγοντος

7 ἔνεγκόν μοι θήραν καὶ ποίησόν μοι ἐδέσματα καὶ φαγὼν εὐλογήσω σε ἐναντίον κυρίου πρὸ τοῦ ἀποθανεῖν με

8 νῦν οὖν υἱέ ἄκουσόν μου καθὰ ἐγώ σοι ἐντέλλομαι

9 καὶ πορευθεὶς εἰς τὰ πρόβατα λαβέ μοι ἐκεῖθεν δύο ἐρίφους ἁπαλοὺς καὶ καλούς καὶ ποιήσω αὐτοὺς ἐδέσματα τῷ πατρί σου ὡς φιλεῖ

10 καὶ εἰσοίσεις τῷ πατρί σου καὶ φάγεται ὅπως εὐλογήσῃ σε ὁ πατήρ σου πρὸ τοῦ ἀποθανεῖν αὐτόν

11 εἶπεν δὲ Ιακωβ πρὸς Ρεβεκκαν τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ ἔστιν Ησαυ ὁ ἀδελφός μου ἀνὴρ δασύς ἐγὼ δὲ ἀνὴρ λεῖος

12 μήποτε ψηλαφήσῃ με ὁ πατήρ μου καὶ ἔσομαι ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ ὡς καταφρονῶν καὶ ἐπάξω ἐπ᾽ ἐμαυτὸν κατάραν καὶ οὐκ εὐλογίαν

13 εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ ἡ μήτηρ ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ ἡ κατάρα σου τέκνον μόνον ὑπάκουσον τῆς φωνῆς μου καὶ πορευθεὶς ἔνεγκέ μοι

14 πορευθεὶς δὲ ἔλαβεν καὶ ἤνεγκεν τῇ μητρί καὶ ἐποίησεν ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ ἐδέσματα καθὰ ἐφίλει ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ

15 καὶ λαβοῦσα Ρεβεκκα τὴν στολὴν Ησαυ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτῆς τοῦ πρεσβυτέρου τὴν καλήν ἣ ἦν παρ᾽ αὐτῇ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ἐνέδυσεν Ιακωβ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς τὸν νεώτερον

16 καὶ τὰ δέρματα τῶν ἐρίφων περιέθηκεν ἐπὶ τοὺς βραχίονας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ γυμνὰ τοῦ τραχήλου αὐτοῦ

17 καὶ ἔδωκεν τὰ ἐδέσματα καὶ τοὺς ἄρτους οὓς ἐποίησεν εἰς τὰς χεῖρας Ιακωβ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτῆς

18 καὶ εἰσήνεγκεν τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ εἶπεν δέ πάτερ ὁ δὲ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ ἐγώ τίς εἶ σύ τέκνον

19 καὶ εἶπεν Ιακωβ τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ ἐγὼ Ησαυ ὁ πρωτότοκός σου ἐποίησα καθὰ ἐλάλησάς μοι ἀναστὰς κάθισον καὶ φάγε τῆς θήρας μου ὅπως εὐλογήσῃ με ἡ ψυχή σου

20 εἶπεν δὲ Ισαακ τῷ υἱῷ αὐτοῦ τί τοῦτο ὃ ταχὺ εὗρες ὦ τέκνον ὁ δὲ εἶπεν ὃ παρέδωκεν κύριος ὁ θεός σου ἐναντίον μου

21 εἶπεν δὲ Ισαακ τῷ Ιακωβ ἔγγισόν μοι καὶ ψηλαφήσω σε τέκνον εἰ σὺ εἶ ὁ υἱός μου Ησαυ ἢ οὔ

22 ἤγγισεν δὲ Ιακωβ πρὸς Ισαακ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐψηλάφησεν αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν ἡ μὲν φωνὴ φωνὴ Ιακωβ αἱ δὲ χεῖρες χεῖρες Ησαυ

23 καὶ οὐκ ἐπέγνω αὐτόν ἦσαν γὰρ αἱ χεῖρες αὐτοῦ ὡς αἱ χεῖρες Ησαυ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ δασεῖαι καὶ ηὐλόγησεν αὐτόν

24 καὶ εἶπεν σὺ εἶ ὁ υἱός μου Ησαυ ὁ δὲ εἶπεν ἐγώ

25 καὶ εἶπεν προσάγαγέ μοι καὶ φάγομαι ἀπὸ τῆς θήρας σου τέκνον ἵνα εὐλογήσῃ σε ἡ ψυχή μου καὶ προσήγαγεν αὐτῷ καὶ ἔφαγεν καὶ εἰσήνεγκεν αὐτῷ οἶνον καὶ ἔπιεν

26 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ισαακ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἔγγισόν μοι καὶ φίλησόν με τέκνον

27 καὶ ἐγγίσας ἐφίλησεν αὐτόν καὶ ὠσφράνθη τὴν ὀσμὴν τῶν ἱματίων αὐτοῦ καὶ ηὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ ὀσμὴ τοῦ υἱοῦ μου ὡς ὀσμὴ ἀγροῦ πλήρους ὃν ηὐλόγησεν κύριος

28 καὶ δῴη σοι ὁ θεὸς ἀπὸ τῆς δρόσου τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς πιότητος τῆς γῆς καὶ πλῆθος σίτου καὶ οἴνου

29 καὶ δουλευσάτωσάν σοι ἔθνη καὶ προσκυνήσουσίν σοι ἄρχοντες καὶ γίνου κύριος τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου καὶ προσκυνήσουσίν σοι οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ πατρός σου ὁ καταρώμενός σε ἐπικατάρατος ὁ δὲ εὐλογῶν σε εὐλογημένος

30 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὸ παύσασθαι Ισαακ εὐλογοῦντα Ιακωβ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἐξῆλθεν Ιακωβ ἀπὸ προσώπου Ισαακ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ Ησαυ ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ ἦλθεν ἀπὸ τῆς θήρας

31 καὶ ἐποίησεν καὶ αὐτὸς ἐδέσματα καὶ προσήνεγκεν τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν τῷ πατρί ἀναστήτω ὁ πατήρ μου καὶ φαγέτω τῆς θήρας τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ ὅπως εὐλογήσῃ με ἡ ψυχή σου

32 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ισαακ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ τίς εἶ σύ ὁ δὲ εἶπεν ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ υἱός σου ὁ πρωτότοκος Ησαυ

33 ἐξέστη δὲ Ισαακ ἔκστασιν μεγάλην σφόδρα καὶ εἶπεν τίς οὖν ὁ θηρεύσας μοι θήραν καὶ εἰσενέγκας μοι καὶ ἔφαγον ἀπὸ πάντων πρὸ τοῦ σε ἐλθεῖν καὶ ηὐλόγησα αὐτόν καὶ εὐλογημένος ἔστω

34 ἐγένετο δὲ ἡνίκα ἤκουσεν Ησαυ τὰ ῥήματα Ισαακ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἀνεβόησεν φωνὴν μεγάλην καὶ πικρὰν σφόδρα καὶ εἶπεν εὐλόγησον δὴ κἀμέ πάτερ

35 εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ ἐλθὼν ὁ ἀδελφός σου μετὰ δόλου ἔλαβεν τὴν εὐλογίαν σου

36 καὶ εἶπεν δικαίως ἐκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Ιακωβ ἐπτέρνικεν γάρ με ἤδη δεύτερον τοῦτο τά τε πρωτοτόκιά μου εἴληφεν καὶ νῦν εἴληφεν τὴν εὐλογίαν μου καὶ εἶπεν Ησαυ τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ οὐχ ὑπελίπω μοι εὐλογίαν πάτερ

37 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Ισαακ εἶπεν τῷ Ησαυ εἰ κύριον αὐτὸν ἐποίησά σου καὶ πάντας τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐποίησα αὐτοῦ οἰκέτας σίτῳ καὶ οἴνῳ ἐστήρισα αὐτόν σοὶ δὲ τί ποιήσω τέκνον

38 εἶπεν δὲ Ησαυ πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ μὴ εὐλογία μία σοί ἐστιν πάτερ εὐλόγησον δὴ κἀμέ πάτερ κατανυχθέντος δὲ Ισαακ ἀνεβόησεν φωνὴν Ησαυ καὶ ἔκλαυσεν

39 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Ισαακ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἰδοὺ ἀπὸ τῆς πιότητος τῆς γῆς ἔσται ἡ κατοίκησίς σου καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς δρόσου τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἄνωθεν

40 καὶ ἐπὶ τῇ μαχαίρῃ σου ζήσῃ καὶ τῷ ἀδελφῷ σου δουλεύσεις ἔσται δὲ ἡνίκα ἐὰν καθέλῃς καὶ ἐκλύσεις τὸν ζυγὸν αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τοῦ τραχήλου σου

41 καὶ ἐνεκότει Ησαυ τῷ Ιακωβ περὶ τῆς εὐλογίας ἧς εὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ εἶπεν δὲ Ησαυ ἐν τῇ διανοίᾳ ἐγγισάτωσαν αἱ ἡμέραι τοῦ πένθους τοῦ πατρός μου ἵνα ἀποκτείνω Ιακωβ τὸν ἀδελφόν μου

42 ἀπηγγέλη δὲ Ρεβεκκα τὰ ῥήματα Ησαυ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτῆς τοῦ πρεσβυτέρου καὶ πέμψασα ἐκάλεσεν Ιακωβ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς τὸν νεώτερον καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἰδοὺ Ησαυ ὁ ἀδελφός σου ἀπειλεῖ σοι τοῦ ἀποκτεῖναί σε

43 νῦν οὖν τέκνον ἄκουσόν μου τῆς φωνῆς καὶ ἀναστὰς ἀπόδραθι εἰς τὴν Μεσοποταμίαν πρὸς Λαβαν τὸν ἀδελφόν μου εἰς Χαρραν

44 καὶ οἴκησον μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἡμέρας τινὰς ἕως τοῦ ἀποστρέψαι τὸν θυμὸν

45 καὶ τὴν ὀργὴν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἐπιλάθηται ἃ πεποίηκας αὐτῷ καὶ ἀποστείλασα μεταπέμψομαί σε ἐκεῖθεν μήποτε ἀτεκνωθῶ ἀπὸ τῶν δύο ὑμῶν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ μιᾷ

46 εἶπεν δὲ Ρεβεκκα πρὸς Ισαακ προσώχθικα τῇ ζωῇ μου διὰ τὰς θυγατέρας τῶν υἱῶν Χετ εἰ λήμψεται Ιακωβ γυναῖκα ἀπὸ τῶν θυγατέρων τῆς γῆς ταύτης ἵνα τί μοι ζῆν

1 Senuit autem Isaac, et caligaverunt oculi ejus, et videre non poterat: vocavitque Esau filium suum majorem, et dixit ei: Fili mi? Qui respondit: Adsum.

2 Cui pater: Vides, inquit, quod senuerim, et ignorem diem mortis meæ.

3 Sume arma tua, pharetram, et arcum, et egredere foras: cumque venatu aliquid apprehenderis,

4 fac mihi inde pulmentum sicut velle me nosti, et affer ut comedam: et benedicat tibi anima mea antequam moriar.

5 Quod cum audisset Rebecca, et ille abiisset in agrum ut jussionem patris impleret,

6 dixit filio suo Jacob: Audivi patrem tuum loquentem cum Esau fratre tuo, et dicentem ei:

7 Affer mihi de venatione tua, et fac cibos ut comedam, et benedicam tibi coram Domino antequam moriar.

8 Nunc ergo, fili mi, acquiesce consiliis meis:

9 et pergens ad gregem, affer mihi duos hædos optimos, ut faciam ex eis escas patri tuo, quibus libenter vescitur:

10 quas cum intuleris, et comederit, benedicat tibi priusquam moriatur.

11 Cui ille respondit: Nosti quod Esau frater meus homo pilosus sit, et ego lenis:

12 si attrectaverit me pater meus, et senserit, timeo ne putet me sibi voluisse illudere, et inducam super me maledictionem pro benedictione.

13 Ad quem mater: In me sit, ait, ista maledictio, fili mi: tantum audi vocem meam, et pergens, affer quæ dixi.

14 Abiit, et attulit, deditque matri. Paravit illa cibos, sicut velle noverat patrem illius.

15 Et vestibus Esau valde bonis, quas apud se habebat domi, induit eum:

16 pelliculasque hædorum circumdedit manibus, et colli nuda protexit:

17 deditque pulmentum, et panes, quos coxerat, tradidit.

18 Quibus illatis, dixit: Pater mi? At ille respondit: Audio. Quis es tu, fili mi?

19 Dixitque Jacob: Ego sum primogenitus tuus Esau: feci sicut præcepisti mihi: surge, sede, et comede de venatione mea, ut benedicat mihi anima tua.

20 Rursumque Isaac ad filium suum: Quomodo, inquit, tam cito invenire potuisti, fili mi? Qui respondit: Voluntas Dei fuit ut cito occurreret mihi quod volebam.

21 Dixitque Isaac: Accede huc, ut tangam te, fili mi, et probem utrum tu sis filius meus Esau, an non.

22 Accessit ille ad patrem, et palpato eo, dixit Isaac: Vox quidem, vox Jacob est: sed manus, manus sunt Esau.

23 Et non cognovit eum, quia pilosæ manus similitudinem majoris expresserant. Benedicens ergo illi,

24 ait: Tu es filius meus Esau? Respondit: Ego sum.

25 At ille: Affer mihi, inquit, cibos de venatione tua, fili mi, ut benedicat tibi anima mea. Quos cum oblatos comedisset, obtulit ei etiam vinum. Quo hausto,

26 dixit ad eum: Accede ad me, et da mihi osculum, fili mi.

27 Accessit, et osculatus est eum. Statimque ut sensit vestimentorum illius fragrantiam, benedicens illi, ait: [Ecce odor filii mei
sicut odor agri pleni,
cui benedixit Dominus.

28 Det tibi Deus de rore cæli
et de pinguedine terræ
abundantiam frumenti et vini.

29 Et serviant tibi populi,
et adorent te tribus:
esto dominus fratrum tuorum,
et incurventur ante te filii matris tuæ:
qui maledixerit tibi, sit ille maledictus,
et qui benedixerit tibi, benedictionibus repleatur.]

30 Vix Isaac sermonem impleverat, et egresso Jacob foras, venit Esau,

31 coctosque de venatione cibos intulit patri, dicens: Surge, pater mi, et comede de venatione filii tui, ut benedicat mihi anima tua.

32 Dixitque illi Isaac: Quis enim es tu? Qui respondit: Ego sum filius tuus primogenitus Esau.

33 Expavit Isaac stupore vehementi: et ultra quam credi potest admirans, ait: Quis igitur ille est qui dudum captam venationem attulit mihi, et comedi ex omnibus priusquam tu venires; benedixique ei, et erit benedictus?

34 Auditis Esau sermonibus patris, irrugiit clamore magno: et consternatus, ait: Benedic etiam et mihi, pater mi.

35 Qui ait: Venit germanus tuus fraudulenter, et accepit benedictionem tuam.

36 At ille subjunxit: Juste vocatum est nomen ejus Jacob: supplantavit enim me en altera vice: primogenita mea ante tulit, et nunc secundo surripuit benedictionem meam. Rursumque ad patrem: Numquid non reservasti, ait, et mihi benedictionem?

37 Respondit Isaac: Dominum tuum illum constitui, et omnes fratres ejus servituti illius subjugavi; frumento et vino stabilivi eum: et tibi post hæc, fili mi, ultra quid faciam?

38 Cui Esau: Num unam, inquit, tantum benedictionem habes, pater? mihi quoque obsecro ut benedicas. Cumque ejulatu magno fleret,

39 motus Isaac, dixit ad eum: [In pinguedine terræ,
et in rore cæli desuper,

40 erit benedictio tua.
Vives in gladio, et fratri tuo servies:
tempusque veniet, cum excutias et solvas jugum ejus de cervicibus tuis.]

41 Oderat ergo semper Esau Jacob pro benedictione qua benedixerat ei pater: dixitque in corde suo: Venient dies luctus patris mei, et occidam Jacob fratrem meum.

42 Nuntiata sunt hæc Rebeccæ: quæ mittens et vocans Jacob filium suum, dixit ad eum: Ecce Esau frater tuus minatur ut occidat te.

43 Nunc ergo, fili mi, audi vocem meam, et consurgens fuge ad Laban fratrem meum in Haran:

44 habitabisque cum eo dies paucos, donec requiescat furor fratris tui,

45 et cesset indignatio ejus, obliviscaturque eorum quæ fecisti in eum: postea mittam, et adducam te inde huc: cur utroque orbabor filio in uno die?

46 Dixitque Rebecca ad Isaac: Tædet me vitæ meæ propter filias Heth: si acceperit Jacob uxorem de stirpe hujus terræ, nolo vivere.
