Summary: Jacob was not the rightful person to receive the blessing from the father, but because the mother loved Jacob more than Esau which made Jacob to become a candidate of uncommon favour.
Gen. 27:27-29 “27 So he went to him and kissed him. When Isaac caught the smell of his clothes, he blessed him and said, “Ah, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field that the LORD has blessed. 8 May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness— an abundance of grain and new wine. 29 May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may the sons of your mother bow down to you. May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed.” (NIV)
