27 So he went to him and kissed(A) him(B). When Isaac caught the smell of his clothes,(C) he blessed him and said,

“Ah, the smell of my son
    is like the smell of a field
    that the Lord has blessed.(D)
28 May God give you heaven’s dew(E)
    and earth’s richness(F)
    an abundance of grain(G) and new wine.(H)
29 May nations serve you
    and peoples bow down to you.(I)
Be lord over your brothers,
    and may the sons of your mother bow down to you.(J)
May those who curse you be cursed
    and those who bless you be blessed.(K)
