创世记 27

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。” 以撒说:“我年老了,不知道还能活多久。 现在,带着你的弓箭去田野为我打些野味来, 照我喜欢的口味,做成美食给我吃,以便我在死前给你祝福。”

利百加听见了以撒跟儿子以扫说的话。以扫出去打猎后, 利百加就对她儿子雅各说:“我听见你父亲对你哥哥以扫说, ‘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。’ 现在,孩子,你要听我的话,照我的吩咐去做。 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 以撒对以扫说:“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 利百加对以撒说:“我被这些赫人女子烦死了。如果雅各也像以扫一样娶那些赫人女子为妻,我活着还有什么意思呢?”

Genesis 27

Jacob’s Deception

1Now it came about, when Isaac was old and his eyes were too dim to see, that he called his older son Esau and said to him, “My son.” And he said to him, “Here I am.” [a]Isaac said, “Behold now, I am old and I do not know the day of my death. Now then, please take your gear, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me; and prepare a savory dish for me such as I love, and bring it to me that I may eat, so that my soul may bless you before I die.”

Rebekah was listening while Isaac spoke to his son Esau. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game to bring home, Rebekah said to her son Jacob, “Behold, I heard your father speak to your brother Esau, saying, ‘Bring me some game and prepare a savory dish for me, that I may eat, and bless you in the presence of the Lord before my death.’ Now therefore, my son, listen to [b]me [c]as I command you. Go now to the flock and [d]bring me two choice [e]young goats from there, that I may prepare them as a savory dish for your father, such as he loves. 10 Then you shall bring it to your father, that he may eat, so that he may bless you before his death.” 11 Jacob [f]answered his mother Rebekah, “Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man and I am a smooth man. 12 Perhaps my father will feel me, then I will be as a [g]deceiver in his sight, and I will bring upon myself a curse and not a blessing.” 13 But his mother said to him, “Your curse be on me, my son; only obey my voice, and go, get them for me.” 14 So he went and got them, and brought them to his mother; and his mother made savory food such as his father loved. 15 Then Rebekah took the [h]best garments of Esau her elder son, which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob her younger son. 16 And she put the skins of the [i]young goats on his hands and on the smooth part of his neck. 17 She also gave the savory food and the bread, which she had made, [j]to her son Jacob.

18 Then he came to his father and said, “My father.” And he said, “Here I am. Who are you, my son?” 19 Jacob said to his father, “I am Esau your firstborn; I have done as you told me. Get up, please, sit and eat of my game, that [k]you may bless me.” 20 Isaac said to his son, “How is it that you have it so quickly, my son?” And he said, “Because the Lord your God caused it to happen to me.” 21 Then Isaac said to Jacob, “Please come close, that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not.” 22 So Jacob came close to Isaac his father, and he felt him and said, “The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau.” 23 He did not recognize him, because his hands were hairy like his brother Esau’s hands; so he blessed him. 24 And he said, “Are you really my son Esau?” And he said, “I am.” 25 So he said, “Bring it to me, and I will eat of my son’s game, that [l]I may bless you.” And he brought it to him, and he ate; he also brought him wine and he drank. 26 Then his father Isaac said to him, “Please come close and kiss me, my son.” 27 So he came close and kissed him; and when he smelled the smell of his garments, he blessed him and said,

“See, the smell of my son
Is like the smell of a field which the Lord has blessed;
28 Now may God give you of the dew of heaven,
And of the fatness of the earth,
And an abundance of grain and new wine;
29 May peoples serve you,
And nations bow down to you;
Be master of your brothers,
And may your mother’s sons bow down to you.
Cursed be those who curse you,
And blessed be those who bless you.”

The Stolen Blessing

30 Now it came about, as soon as Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, and Jacob had hardly gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting. 31 Then he also made savory food, and brought it to his father; and he said to his father, “Let my father arise and eat of his son’s game, that [m]you may bless me.” 32 Isaac his father said to him, “Who are you?” And he said, “I am your son, your firstborn, Esau.” 33 Then Isaac [n]trembled violently, and said, “Who was he then that hunted game and brought it to me, so that I ate of all of it before you came, and blessed him? Yes, and he shall be blessed.” 34 When Esau heard the words of his father, he cried out with an exceedingly great and bitter cry, and said to his father, “Bless me, even me also, O my father!” 35 And he said, “Your brother came deceitfully and has taken away your blessing.” 36 Then he said, “[o]Is he not rightly named Jacob, for he has supplanted me these two times? He took away my birthright, and behold, now he has taken away my blessing.” And he said, “Have you not reserved a blessing for me?” 37 But Isaac replied to Esau, “Behold, I have made him your master, and all his [p]relatives I have given to him [q]as servants; and with grain and new wine I have sustained him. Now as for you then, what can I do, my son?” 38 Esau said to his father, “Do you have only one blessing, my father? Bless me, even me also, O my father.” So Esau lifted his voice and wept.

39 Then Isaac his father answered and said to him,

“Behold, [r]away from the [s]fertility of the earth shall be your dwelling,
And [t]away from the dew of heaven from above.
40 “By your sword you shall live,
And your brother you shall serve;
But it shall come about when you become restless,
That you will [u]break his yoke from your neck.”

41 So Esau bore a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him; and Esau said [v]to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob.” 42 Now when the words of her elder son Esau were reported to Rebekah, she sent and called her younger son Jacob, and said to him, “Behold your brother Esau is consoling himself concerning you by planning to kill you. 43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice, and arise, [w]flee to Haran, to my brother Laban! 44 Stay with him a few days, until your brother’s fury [x]subsides, 45 until your brother’s anger [y]against you subsides and he forgets what you did to him. Then I will send and get you from there. Why should I be bereaved of you both in one day?”

46 Rebekah said to Isaac, “I am tired of [z]living because of the daughters of Heth; if Jacob takes a wife from the daughters of Heth, like these, from the daughters of the land, what good will my life be to me?”
