JACOB DECEIVES HIS FATHER, AD DEFRAUDS HIS BROTHER. BY JOH BUSTAED. When aged Isaac's health declined, And he became infirm and blind, He call'd to him his eldest son, And thus in converse he begun ! " My son — I'm old, and do not know, How few may be my days below ; Therefore, to thee, without delay, My blessing I would now com * ow go, procure me savoury meat, Such as 1^ love, that I may eat ; And I will then my blessing give To thee, ere I shall cease to live." Esau approv'd, then went and sought For venison, but little thought That Jacob would the blessing gain, And render all his efforts vain. Rebekah heard what Isaac said, And, by undue attachment led, The whole to Jacob she made known, Because he was her favourite son.

Eehekah said, " My son, on me If he should curse, his curse shall be : Fetch me two kids :" Jacob obeyed,

" " Because the Lord thy God," said he, " Has brought what thou desir'dst to me." As aged Isaac could not see, He said, " My son come near to me, That I may feel thee, for I fear, It is not Esau's voice I hear." The sow complies — he must do so : — • The sire examines — truth to know ; And cries, while Jacob listening stands, " 'Tis Jacob's voice — but Esau's IkuuU. " ow, speak the truth — chase doubt away — Art thou my very Esau ? — say." "lam" he said — his sire bettered, And then the savoury meat received. Refreshed, — His blessing he conforr'd By prayer to heaven, where be was beard, — " With corn, and wine, thy burns be stored,
