Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 27:46

_ _ Rebekah said to Isaac — Another pretext Rebekah’s cunning had to devise to obtain her husband’s consent to Jacob’s journey to Mesopotamia; and she succeeded by touching the aged patriarch in a tender point, afflicting to his pious heart — the proper marriage of their younger son.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 27:41-46.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 27:46

If Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth — As Esau has done. More artifice still. This was not the thing she was afraid of. But if we use guile once, we shall be very ready to use it again. It should be carefully observed, That altho' a blessing came on his posterity by Jacob's vile lying and dissimulation, yet it brought heavy affliction upon himself, and that for a long term of years. So severely did God punish him personally, for doing evil that good might come.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(o) Who were Esau's wives.

(p) By this she persuaded Isaac to agree to Jacob's leaving.
