CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
27:19 And Jacob said, I am Esau - Who would have thought this plain man could have played such a part? His mother having put him in the way of it, he applies himself to those methods which he had never accustomed himself to, but had always conceived an abhorrence of. But lying is soon learned. I wonder how honest Jacob could so readily turn his tongue to say, I am Esau thy first - born: and when his father asked him, Ge 27:24. Art thou my very son Esau? to reply I am. How could he say, I have done as thou badst me, when he had received no command from his father, but was doing as his mother bid him? How could he say, Eat of my venison, when he knew it came not from the field, but from the fold? But especially I wonder how he could have the forehead to father it upon God, and to use his name in the cheat.

J. W. McGarvey—The Four-Fold Gospel
Isaac loved Esau because he enjoyed eating the wild game Esau brought home, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
Prepare my favorite dish, and bring it here for me to eat. Then I will pronounce the blessing that belongs to you, my firstborn son, before I die."
So Jacob took the food to his father. "My father?" he said. "Yes, my son," Isaac answered. "Who are you--Esau or Jacob?"
Esau prepared a delicious meal and brought it to his father. Then he said, "Sit up, my father, and eat my wild game so you can give me your blessing."
But Isaac said, "Your brother was here, and he tricked me. He has taken away your blessing."
When he calms down and forgets what you have done to him, I will send for you to come back. Why should I lose both of you in one day?"
