Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 28:11

_ _ he lighted upon a certain place — By a forced march he had reached Beth-el, about forty-eight miles from Beer-sheba, and had to spend the night in the open field.

_ _ he took of the stones, etc. — “The nature of the soil is an existing comment on the record of the stony territory where Jacob lay” [Clarke’s Travels].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 28:11

The stones for his pillow, and the heavens for his canopy! Yet his comfort in the divine blessing, and his confidence in the divine protection, made him easy, even when he lay thus exposed: being sure that his God made him to dwell in safety, he could lie down and sleep upon a stone.
