This reminded me of another question:
Bracha to Yaacov: May Hashem grant you the dew of heaven and the fat of the
earth, much grain and wine...(Bereishis 27:28) Yizchak said to Esav: I have
associated Yaakov with the grain and the wine (27:37) Bracha to Esav: the
fat places of the earth can still be your dwelling and you can still have
the dew of heaven...(27:39)
