Then he asked, "Are you really my son Esau?" "I am," Jacob replied.

Then his father Isaac said to him, "Come here and kiss me, my son."

So Jacob went over and kissed him. When Isaac caught the scent of his clothing, he blessed him, saying, "Yes, my son smells like the scent of an open field which the Lord has blessed.
