27:9 Go to the sheep and take two choice young kids. I will prepare them with a tasty recipe, just the way your father likes them.
Lech-na el-hatson vekach-li misham shney gedayey izim tovim ve'e'eseh otam mat'amim le'avicha ka'asher ahev.
27:10 You must then bring it to your father, so that he will eat it and bless you before he dies.'
Veheveta le'avicha ve'achal ba'avur asher yevarechecha lifney moto.
27:11 'But my brother Esau is hairy,' replied Jacob. 'I am smooth-skinned.
