Genesis 27
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And it was that when Isaaq was old and his eyes were too dull to see, he called Esau, his elder son, and said to him, “My son”, and he said, “Here I am.” 2And Isaaq said to him, “Behold, I am old and I do not know the day that I die. 3Now take your weapons your sword and your bow and arrows and go out to the country and hunt game 4And make stew like I love and bring it to me; I shall eat so that my soul may bless you before I die.”

5And Raphqa heard when Isaaq spoke to Esau his son, and Esau went on to the field to hunt game to bring. 6And Raphqa said to Yaquuv her son, “Behold, I heard your father, saying to Esau your brother, 7‘Bring to me game and make stew for me and I shall eat and I shall bless you in the presence of LORD JEHOVAH before my death.’ 8Now my son, listen to my voice, whatever I command you. 9Go to the flock and take for me from there two goats of the better goats, and I shall make them stew for your father as he loves: 10And I shall bring it to your father and he will eat and he will bless you in the presence of LORD JEHOVAH before his death. 11And Yaquuv said to Raphqa his mother, “Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man and I am a smooth man: 12It may be my father will feel me and I shall be in his eyes as a mocker and you bring against me a curse and not a blessing.” 13And his mother said to him, “Let your curse be upon me, my son, only hear my voice and go get it for me.” 14And he went on, he took and he brought it to his mother and his mother made stew just as his father loved. 15And Raphqa took a choice garment of Esau her elder son that she had with her in the house and she clothed Yaquuv her younger son: 16And she wrapped the skin of a kid of the goats on his hands and upon the smooth of his neck. 17And she gave the stew and the bread that she had made to Yaquuv her son.

18And he brought it to his father and said, “My father”, and he said, “Here I am”, and he said, “Who are you, my son?”

19And Yaquuv said to his father, “I am your son, your first born, Esau. I have done as you said to me; arise, sit and eat of my game so your soul may bless me.” 20And Isaaq said to his son, “What is this that you have found so quickly, my son?” And he said, “That which LORD JEHOVAH your God has prepared before me.” 21And Isaaq said to Yaquuv, his son, “Come near; now I shall feel you my son, if you are my son Esau or not.” 22And Yaquuv came to Isaaq his father and he felt him and he said, “The voice of Yaquuv and the feel of the hands of Esau.” 23And he did not recognize him because his hands were like the hands of Esau his hairy brother, and he blessed him. 24And he said “Is this you, my son Esau?” and he said, “I am.” 25And he said to him, “Come to me; I shall eat of the game of my son, so my soul will bless you”, and he came to him and he ate and he brought wine to him and he drank. 26And Isaaq his father said to him, “Come near and kiss me, my son.”

27And he came near and he kissed him and he smelled the fragrance of his clothing and he blessed him and said, “See, the fragrance of my son is like the fragrance of a field that LORD JEHOVAH has blessed:

28God will give to you from the dew of Heaven and from the fat of the Earth and an abundance of grain and of wine.

29The nations shall serve you and the peoples shall bow down to you; be the head to your brethren and the children of your mother will bow to you; those cursing you are cursed and those blessing you are blessed.”

30And when Isaaq had finished blessing Yaquuv and Yaquuv went out from the presence of Isaaq his father, behold, Esau his brother came from his hunting. 31He also had made stew and brought it to his father and said to his father, “Let my father rise and let him eat of his son’s game, so that your soul may bless me.” 32Isaaq his father said to him, “Who are you?” And he said, “I am your son, your firstborn, Esau.” 33And his father sorrowed a great and very powerful sorrow and he said, “Who indeed is he that hunted game and he brought it to me and I ate of it all before you came? And I have blessed him, also he shall be blessed.” 34And when Esau heard the words of his father, he wailed a great and very bitter wail and he said to his father, “Bless me also, even me, oh my father!” 35His father said to him, “Your brother came in by treachery and he has taken your blessings.” 36And Esau said, “Truly was his name called Yaquuv, who has betrayed me; behold, two times he took my birthright, and now, see, he has taken my blessing.” And Esau said to his father, “Do you not have a blessing left for me?” 37Isaaq answered and said to Esau “Now I have made him the head to you, also I have given all of his brothers to him as Servants and with grain and with wine I have sustained him and therefore, what shall I do for you my son?” 38And Esau said to his father, “You have one blessing, my father; bless me also, even me, my father!” And Esau lifted up his voice and wept.

39Isaaq his father answered and said to him, “Behold, your dwelling shall be in the richness of the Earth and from dew of Heaven from above;

40And you shall live by your sword and you shall serve your brother, and if you are converted, his yoke will pass from your neck.”

41And Esau looked with evil on Yaquuv for the blessings with which his father blessed him, and Esau said in his heart, “Let the days of my father’s place of mourning come and I shall kill Yaquuv my brother.” 42And the words of Esau her elder son were told to Raphqa and she sent and she called Yaquuv her younger son and she said to him, “See, Esau your brother is threatening you to kill you. 43Now my son, hear my voice and arise, go to Laban my brother to Kharan; 44And stay there a few days until the anger of your brother will be calmed down 45And until the anger of your brother will pass over you, and he will forget that which you have done to him, and I shall send and bring you from there, lest I am also bereaved of you two in one day.”

46And Raphqa said to Isaaq, “I have been grieved myself in my life by the presence of the daughters of Khyth; if Yaquuv takes a woman from the daughters of Khyth like these daughters of the land, why should life go on for me?”
