创世记 27:1-46

以撒为儿子祝福

1以撒年老的时候,眼睛昏花,几乎看不见。他把大儿子以扫叫来,说:“我儿啊!”以扫说:“我在这里。” 2以撒说:“我年老了,不知道还能活多久。 3现在,带着你的弓箭去田野为我打些野味来, 4照我喜欢的口味,做成美食给我吃,以便我在死前给你祝福。”

5利百加听见了以撒跟儿子以扫说的话。以扫出去打猎后, 6利百加就对她儿子雅各说:“我听见你父亲对你哥哥以扫说, 7‘你去打些野味回来,做成美食给我吃,以便我死之前在耶和华面前给你祝福。’ 8现在,孩子,你要听我的话,照我的吩咐去做。 9你到羊群里选两头上好的山羊羔,我好照你父亲喜爱的口味做成美食, 10由你拿去给他吃,让他死前为你祝福。”

11雅各对母亲利百加说:“哥哥以扫浑身是毛,我的皮肤光滑。 12如果父亲用手摸我,一定会发觉我骗他,那时候我不但得不到祝福,反会招来咒诅。” 13他母亲利百加对他说:“孩子啊,有咒诅,我来承担。你只管听我的话,把羊羔牵来。”

14于是,雅各把羊牵来交给母亲,他母亲就照他父亲喜爱的口味做成美食。 15利百加又拿了大儿子以扫留在家里最好的衣服,给小儿子雅各穿上, 16再用山羊皮把雅各光滑的手和脖子都包起来, 17然后把做好的美味和饼交给雅各

18雅各来到父亲跟前,叫了一声:“父亲。”以撒回答说:“我在这里,孩子,你是谁?” 19雅各对父亲说:“我是你的大儿子以扫,你吩咐我的事,我已经办好了。请你坐起来,吃我打的野味,然后给我祝福。” 20以撒对他说:“孩子,你怎么这么快就打到野味了?”雅各回答说:“因为你的上帝耶和华让我碰见好机会。” 21以撒说:“孩子,过来,让我摸摸看你是不是我儿以扫。” 22雅各挨到父亲跟前,以撒摸着他说:“声音是雅各的声音,手却是以扫的手。” 23因为雅各手上有毛,与他哥哥以扫的手一样,以撒分辨不出来,就给他祝福。 24以撒又问:“你真是我的儿子以扫吗?”雅各回答说:“是。” 25以撒便说:“把野味拿给我,我吃了你打的野味就为你祝福。”雅各递上野味,以撒吃了;雅各又拿酒给他喝,他也喝了。 26以撒对他说:“孩子,你过来亲吻我。” 27雅各就挨上前去亲了父亲。以撒闻到他衣服上的气味,就祝福他说:

“我儿子的香气就像蒙耶和华赐福之田地的香气。

28愿上帝赐你天上的甘霖、肥沃的土地并丰富的五谷和新酒。

29愿万民都臣服于你,

万国都向你下拜。

愿你成为你弟兄的主人,

愿你母亲的儿子向你下拜。

咒诅你的,愿他受咒诅;

祝福你的,愿他蒙祝福。”

以扫求父亲祝福

30雅各接受了以撒的祝福才刚离开,他的哥哥以扫就打猎回来了。 31以扫把野味煮好,拿到父亲跟前,说:“父亲,请起来吃你儿子煮的野味,然后给我祝福。” 32他父亲以撒问道:“你是谁?”以扫回答说:“我是你的长子以扫。” 33以撒大为震惊,说:“你没有来之前,拿野味来给我吃的是谁呢?我已经吃了,也给那人祝福了,他将来必蒙祝福。”

34以扫听了放声痛哭,说:“父亲啊,求你也为我祝福!” 35以撒说:“你弟弟已经用诡计把你的福分夺去了。” 36以扫说:“怪不得他叫雅各,他已经骗了我两次,先前把我长子的名分夺去,现在又夺去我的福分!”接着他对父亲说:“难道你没有留下别的祝福可以给我吗?”

37以撒以扫说:“我已经立他做你的主人,使他的众弟兄做他的仆人,并给他五谷和新酒。孩子啊,我还能为你做什么呢?” 38以扫对父亲说:“父亲啊,你只有一个祝福吗?父亲啊,求你也为我祝福!”以扫又放声大哭。 39以撒对他说:

“你住的地方必远离肥沃的土地,

也不会有天上的甘霖。

40你必倚靠刀剑生活,

又必服侍你的弟弟。

到你无法忍受的时候,

你必挣脱颈上的重轭。”

雅各逃往舅父家

41以扫因为父亲把祝福给了雅各,就对雅各怀恨在心,暗自思量说:“父亲已经不久人世,他死后,我要把雅各杀掉!” 42以扫的计谋传到利百加耳中。她就派人把雅各叫来,对他说:“你哥哥以扫想要杀你泄愤! 43孩子,听我的话,现在就逃到哈兰你舅舅拉班那里, 44与他住些日子,一直住到你哥哥的气消了。 45等他气消了,忘了你对他所做的事,我会派人接你回来。我何必在一天之内失去你们两个呢?” 46利百加以撒说:“我被这些人女子烦死了。如果雅各也像以扫一样娶那些人女子为妻,我活着还有什么意思呢?”

Genesis 27:1-46

1And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I. 2And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death: 3Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;27.3 take: Heb. hunt 4And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die. 5And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son. And Esau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.

6¶ And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying, 7Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless thee before the LORD before my death. 8Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command thee. 9Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the goats; and I will make them savoury meat for thy father, such as he loveth: 10And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and that he may bless thee before his death. 11And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man: 12My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing. 13And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son: only obey my voice, and go fetch me them. 14And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved. 15And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:27.15 goodly: Heb. desirable 16And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the smooth of his neck: 17And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.

18¶ And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I; who art thou, my son? 19And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy firstborn; I have done according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my venison, that thy soul may bless me. 20And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the LORD thy God brought it to me.27.20 to me: Heb. before me 21And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not. 22And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice is Jacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau. 23And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his brother Esau’s hands: so he blessed him. 24And he said, Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am. 25And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son’s venison, that my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat: and he brought him wine, and he drank. 26And his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son. 27And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field which the LORD hath blessed: 28Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine: 29Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother’s sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.

30¶ And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting. 31And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son’s venison, that thy soul may bless me. 32And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau. 33And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed.27.33 trembled…: Heb. trembled with a great trembling greatly27.33 taken: Heb. hunted 34And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father. 35And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy blessing. 36And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?27.36 Jacob: that is, A supplanter 37And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?27.37 sustained: or, supported 38And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept. 39And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;27.39 the fatness: or, of the fatness 40And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.

41¶ And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob. 42And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah: and she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him, Behold, thy brother Esau, as touching thee, doth comfort himself, purposing to kill thee. 43Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; and arise, flee thou to Laban my brother to Haran; 44And tarry with him a few days, until thy brother’s fury turn away; 45Until thy brother’s anger turn away from thee, and he forget that which thou hast done to him: then I will send, and fetch thee from thence: why should I be deprived also of you both in one day? 46And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me?
