Genesis 27:36 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

36 Esau exclaimed, “He is well named Jacob, is he not! He has supplanted me[a] twice! First he took away my right as firstborn, and now he has taken away my blessing.” Then he said, “Have you not saved a blessing for me?”

Footnotes:

  1. 27:36 He has supplanted me: in Hebrew, wayyaqebeni, a wordplay on the name Jacob, ya‘aqob; see Jer 9:3 and Gn 25:26. There is also a play between the Hebrew words bekorah (“right of the firstborn”) and berakah (“blessing”).
