    ¶ Y guis Jacob un potaje; y volviendo Esa del campo cansado,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 25:29

    Verse 29. Sod pottage] dyzn dzy yazed nazid, he boiled a boiling; and this we are informed, ver. 34, was of yd[ adashim, what the Septuagint render fakon, and we, following them and the Vulgate
    lens, translate lentiles, a sort of pulse. Dr. Shaw casts some light on this passage, speaking of the inhabitants of Barbary. ""Beans, lentiles, kidney beans, and garvancos,"" says he, ""are the chiefest of their pulse kind; beans, when boiled and stewed with oil and garlic, are the principal food of persons of all distinctions; lentiles are dressed in the same manner with beans, dissolving easily into a mass, and making a pottage of a chocolate colour. This we find was the red pottage which Esau, from thence called Edom, exchanged for his birthright."" Shaw's Travels, p. 140, 4to. edit.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 29-34 - We have here the bargain made between
    Jacob and Esau about the right which was Esau's by birth, but Jacob's by promise. It was for spiritual privilege; and we see Jacob's desire of the birth-right, but he sought to obtain it by crooked courses, not like his character as plain man. He was right, that he coveted earnestly the best gifts; he was wrong, that he took advantage of his brother's need. The inheritance of their father's worldly goods did not descend to Jacob and was not meant in this proposal. But it includeth the futur possession of the land of Canaan by his children's children, and the covenant made with Abraham as to Christ the promised Seed. Believin Jacob valued these above all things; unbelieving Esau despised them Yet although we must be of Jacob's judgment in seeking the birth-right we ought carefully to avoid all guile, in seeking to obtain even the greatest advantages. Jacob's pottage pleased Esau's eye. "Give me some of that red;" for this he was called Edom, or Red. Gratifying the sensual appetite ruins thousands of precious souls. When men's heart walk after their own eyes, Job 31:7, and when they serve their ow bellies, they are sure to be punished. If we use ourselves to den ourselves, we break the force of most temptations. It cannot be supposed that Esau was dying of hunger in Isaac's house. The word signify, I am going towards death; he seems to mean, I shall never liv to inherit Canaan, or any of those future supposed blessings; and what signifies it who has them when I am dead and gone. This would be the language of profaneness, with which the apostle brands him, Heb 12:16 and this contempt of the birth-right is blamed, ver. #(34). It is the greatest folly to part with our interest in God, and Christ, an heaven, for the riches, honours, and pleasures of this world; it is a bad a bargain as his who sold a birth-right for a dish of pottage. Esa ate and drank, pleased his palate, satisfied his appetite, and the carelessly rose up and went his way, without any serious thought, or any regret, about the bad bargain he had made. Thus Esau despised his birth-right. By his neglect and contempt afterwards, and by justifyin himself in what he had done, he put the bargain past recall. People ar ruined, not so much by doing what is amiss, as by doing it and no repenting of it __________________________________________________________________
