We don’t know the reasons behind the approach Rebekah and Jacob used to obtain a blessing for Jacob.
It is helpful to remember that the Old Testament as we now have it is incomplete (see Moses 1:23, 41).
There may be information missing from the original records that would explain what might seem troubling to us.
However, we do know that it was God’s will for Jacob to receive the blessing from Isaac because Rebekah had a revelation that Jacob was to rule over Esau (see Genesis 25:23).
After Isaac acknowledged that he had blessed Jacob instead of Esau, he affirmed that Jacob “shall be blessed” (Genesis 27:33)—suggesting that God’s will had been accomplished.
