Genesis 27:26-28 New English Translation (NET Bible)

26 Then his father Isaac said to him, “Come here and kiss me, my son.” 27 So Jacob[a] went over and kissed him. When Isaac caught the scent[b] of his clothing, he blessed him, saying,

“Yes,[c] my son smells
like the scent of an open field
which the Lord has blessed.
28 May God give you
the dew of the sky[d]
and the richness[e] of the earth,
and plenty of grain and new wine.
