Let 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.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

27:29 curseth thee. Isaac’s presumption in blessing Esau like this is obvious when contrasted with God’s specific instruction given before they were born that Jacob should have this position (Genesis 25:23).

27:29 blesseth thee. Here Isaac repeats God’s own original promise to Abraham (Genesis 12:3), again in flagrant disregard of God’s will.
