Jacob Gets Isaac's Blessing - Genesis 27


(27) So he [Jacob] went to him and kissed him. When Isaac caught the smell of his clothes, he blessed him and said,

"Ah, the smell of my son

is like the smell of a field

that the LORD has blessed.


(28) May God give you of heaven's dew

and of earth's richness—

an abundance of grain and new wine.


(29) May nations serve you

and peoples bow down to you.

Be lord over your brothers,

and may the sons of your mother bow down to you.

May those who curse you be cursed

and those who bless you be blessed."
