    1 Isaac sends Esau for venison. 6 Rebekah instructs Jacob to obtain the blessing. 14 Jacob, feigning to be Esau, obtains it. 30 Esau brings venison. 33 Isaac trembles. 34 Esau complains, and by importunity obtains a blessing. 41 He threatens Jacob's life. 42 Rebekah disappoints him, by sending Jacob away. VERSE 1 - A.M. 2244. B.C. 1760. - dim. * Ge 48:10 1Sa 3:2 Ec 12:3 Joh 9:3 - eldest son. * Ge 25:23-25 VERSE 2 - I know not. * Ge 48:21 1Sa 20:3 Pr 27:1 Ec 9:10 Isa 38:1,3 Mr 13:35 Jas 4:14 VERSE 3 - take, I. * Ge 10:9; 25:27,28 - take me. Heb. hunt. * Ge 25:27,28 1Co 6:12 VERSE 4 - that I may eat. The blessing, says Dr. A. Clarke, which Isaac was to confer on his son, was a species of divine right, and must be communicated with appropriate ceremonies. As eating and drinking were used among the Asiatics on almost all religious occasions, and especially in making and confirming covenants, it is reasonable to suppose, that something of this kind was essentially necessary on this occasion; and that Isaac could not convey the right, till he had eaten of the meat provided for the purpose by him who was to receive the blessing. - that my. * :7,23,25,27; 14:19; 24:60; 28:3; 48:9,15-20; 49:28 Le 9:22,23 De 33:1 * Jos 14:13; 22:6 Lu 2:34; 24:51 Heb 11:20 VERSE 5 * :5 VERSE 6 VERSE 7 - before the. * De 33:1 Jos 6:26 1Sa 24:19 VERSE 8 * :13; 25:23 Ac 4:19; 5:29 Eph 6:1 VERSE 9 - two. * Jud 13:15 1Sa 16:20 - savory.

Heb. desirable. * :27 The Septuagint translates it 'a goodly robe,' which was a long garment that great men used to wear, (Lu. 46 20:46; 22 15:22.) The priest afterwards in the law had 'holy garments' to minister in, (Ex. 2 28:2-4.) Whether the first-born before the law had such to minister in is not certain: for, had they been common garments, why did not Esau himself or his wives keep them? But being, in likelihood, holy robes, received from their ancestors, the mother of the family kept them in sweet chests, from moths and the like; whereupon it is said, (ver. 27,) 'Isaac smelled the smell of his garments.' VERSE 16 - skins. Travellers inform us, that the Eastern goats have long, fine, and beautiful hair, of the most delicate silky softness; indeed the animals generally in those hot countries are not covered with so thick a coat of hair as they are in more northerly regions; so that Isaac might easily be deceived, when his eyes were dim, and his feeling no less impaired than his sight. * :16 VERSE 17 * :17 VERSE 18 VERSE 19 - I am. * :21,24,25; 25:25; 29:23-25 1Ki 13:18; 14:2 Isa 28:15 Zec 13:3,4 Mt 26:70-74 - that thy. * :4 VERSE 20 - Because. * Ex 20:7 Job 13:7 - to me. Heb. before me. VERSE 21 - Come. * Ps 73:28 Isa 57:19 Jas 8 4:8 - may feel. * :12 VERSE 22 - The voice. How wonderful, says Mr. Scott, is that difference which there is betwixt the faces and the voices of the several individuals of the human species! Scarcely any two of the innumerable millions are exactly alike in either, and yet the difference cannot be defined or described! The power, wisdom, and kindness of our Creator should be admired and adored in this remarkable circumstance; for they are very visible. This description of Jacob is not unaptly accommodated to the character of a hypocrite: his voice, his language, is that of a Christian; his hands, or conduct, that of an ungodly man: but the judgment will proceed from God, the Judge of all, at the last day, as in the present case, not by the voice, but by the hands. * :22 VERSE 23 - his hands. * :16 - he blessed. * Ro 9:11,12 Heb 11:20 VERSE 24 - I am. * 1Sa 21:2,13; 27:10 2Sa 14:5 Job 13:7,8; 15:5 Pr 12:19,22; 30:8 * Zec 8:16 Ro 3:7,8 Eph 4:25 Col 3:9 VERSE 25 - that my. * :4 VERSE 26 VERSE 27 - blessed. * Heb 11:20 - the smell of a field. A field where aromatic plants, flowers, fruits, and spices grew in abundance, with which these garments (see ver. 15) of Esau might probably have been perfumed by being laid up with them. * So 2:13; 4:11-14; 7:12,13 Ho 14:6,7 - which. * Ge 26:12 Heb 6:7 VERSE 28 - of the dew. * De 11:11,12; 32:2; 33:13,28 2Sa 1:21 1Ki 17:1 Ps 65:9-13; 133:3 * Isa 45:8 Jer 14:22 Ho 14:5-7 Mic 5:7 Heb 11:20 - the fatness. * :39; 45:18; 49:20 Nu 13:20 Ps 36:8 Ro 11:17 - plenty. * De 7:13; 8:7-9; 33:28 Jos 5:6 1Ki 5:11 2Ch 2:10 Ps 65:9,13 * Ps 104:15 Joe 2:19 Zec 9:17 VERSE 29 - Let people. * Ge 9:25,26; 22:17,18; 49:8-10 2Sa 8:1-18; 10:1-19 1Ki 4:21 Ps 2:6-9 * Ps 72:8 Isa 9:7 Da 2:44,45 Re 19:16 - be lord. * :37; 25:22,23,33 2Sa 8:14 1Ki 11:15,16; 22:47 1Ch 5:2 2Ch 25:11-14 * Ps 60:1-12 *title * Isa 63:1-6 Mal 1:2-5 Ro 9:12 - cursed. * Ge 12:3 Nu 22:11,12; 23:8; 24:9 Zep 2:8,9 Mt 25:40,45 VERSE 30 VERSE 31 - eat. * :4 VERSE 32 VERSE 33 - trembled very exceedingly.

Newton, that as to temporal advantages, the two brothers should be much alike. (See ver. 28.) Esau had cattle, beasts, and substance in abundance, and he went to dwell in Mount Seir of his own accord. When the Israelites desired leave to pass through the territories of Edom, the country abounded with fruitful fields and vineyards. (Nu. 17 20:17.)
