The scriptures below are from the WEB Bible.
19) This is the history of the generations of Isaac, Abraham‘s son. Abraham became the father of Isaac.
20) Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Syrian, to be his wife.
21) Isaac entreated Yahweh for his wife, because she was barren. Yahweh was entreated by him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
22) The children struggled together within her. She said, "If it be so, why do I live?" She went to inquire of Yahweh.
23) Yahweh said to her, Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples will be separated from your body. The one people will be stronger than the other people. The elder will serve the younger.
24) When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
25) The first came out red all over, like a hairy garment. They named him Esau.
26) After that, his brother came out, and his hand had hold on Esau‘s heel. He was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.
27) The boys grew. Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field. Jacob was a quiet man, living in tents.
28) Now Isaac loved Esau, because he ate his venison. Rebekah loved Jacob.
29) Jacob boiled stew. Esau came in from the field, and he was famished.
30) Esau said to Jacob, "Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am famished." Therefore his name was called Edom.
31) Jacob said, "First, sell me your birthright."
32) Esau said, "Behold, I am about to die. What good is the birthright to me?"
33) Jacob said, "Swear to me first." He swore to him. He sold his birthright to Jacob.
34) Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils. He ate and drank, rose up, and went his way. So Esau despised his birthright.
1) It happened, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his elder son, and said to him, "My son?" He said to him, "Here I am."
2) He said, "See now, I am old. I don‘t know the day of my death.
3) Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field, and take me venison.
4) Make me savory food, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat, and that my soul may bless you before I die.
5) Rebekah heard when Isaac spoke to Esau his son. Esau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.
6) Rebekah spoke to Jacob her son, saying, "Behold, I heard your father speak to Esau your brother, saying,
7) ‘Bring me venison, and make me savory food, that I may eat, and bless you before Yahweh before my death.‘
8) Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command you.
9) Go now to the flock, and get me from there two good kids of the goats. I will make them savory food for your father, such as he loves.
10) You shall bring it to your father, that he may eat, so that he may bless you before his death."
11) Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, "Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man.
12) What if my father touches me? I will seem to him as a deceiver, and I would bring a curse on myself, and not a blessing."
13) His mother said to him, "Let your curse be on me, my son. Only obey my voice, and go get them for me."
14) He went, and got them, and brought them to his mother. His mother made savory food, such as his father loved.
15) Rebekah took the good clothes of Esau, her elder son, which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob, her younger son.
16) She put the skins of the kids of the goats on his hands, and on the smooth of his neck.
17) She gave the savory food and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.
18) He came to his father, and said, "My father?" He said, "Here I am. Who are you, my son?"
19) Jacob said to his father, "I am Esau your firstborn. I have done what you asked me to do. Please arise, sit and eat of my venison, that your soul may bless me."
20) Isaac said to his son, "How is it that you have found it so quickly, my son?" He said, "Because Yahweh your God gave me success."
21) Isaac said to Jacob, "Please come near, that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not."
22) Jacob went near to Isaac his father. He felt him, and said, "The voice is Jacob‘s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau."
23) He didn‘t recognize him, because his hands were hairy, like his brother, Esau‘s hands. So he blessed him.
24) He said, "Are you really my son Esau?" He said, "I am."
25) He said, "Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son‘s venison, that my soul may bless you." He brought it near to him, and he ate. He brought him wine, and he drank.
26) His father Isaac said to him, "Come near now, and kiss me, my son."
27) He came near, and kissed him. He smelled the smell of his clothing, and blessed him, and said, "Behold, the smell of my son Is as the smell of a field which Yahweh has blessed.
28) God give you of the dew of the sky, of the fatness of the earth, and plenty of grain and new wine.
29) Let peoples serve you, Nations bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, Let your mother‘s sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, Blessed be everyone who blesses you."
30) It happened, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob had just gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.
31) He also made savory food, and brought it to his father. He said to his father, "Let my father arise, and eat of his son‘s venison, that your soul may bless me."
32) Isaac his father said to him, "Who are you?" He said, "I am your son, your firstborn, Esau."
33) Isaac trembled violently, and said, "Who, then, is he who has taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before you came, and have blessed him? Yes, he will be blessed."
34) When Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with an exceeding great and bitter cry, and said to his father, "Bless me, even me also, my father."
35) He said, "Your brother came with deceit, and has taken away your blessing."
36) He said, "Isn‘t he rightly named Jacob? For he has supplanted me these two times. He took away my birthright. See, now he has taken away my blessing." He said, "Haven‘t you reserved a blessing for me?"
37) Isaac answered Esau, "Behold, I have made him your lord, and all his brothers have I given to him for servants. With grain and new wine have I sustained him. What then will I do for you, my son?"
38) Esau said to his father, "Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me, even me also, my father." Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.
39) Isaac his father answered him, "Behold, of the fatness of the earth will be your dwelling, and of the dew of the sky from above.
40) By your sword will you live, and you will serve your brother. It will happen, when you will break loose, That you shall shake his yoke from off your neck."
