John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 31:42

Jacob speaks of God as the God of his father, intimating that he thought himself unworthy to be thus regarded, but was beloved for his father's sake. He calls him the God of Abraham and the fear of Isaac: for Abraham was dead, and gone to that world where there is no fear; but Isaac was yet alive, sanctifying the Lord in his heart as his fear and his dread.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 31:42

Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the (h) fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked [thee] yesternight.

(h) That is, the God whom Isaac feared and reverenced.
