Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 33:14

_ _ until I come unto my lord — It seems to have been Jacob’s intention, passing round the Dead Sea, to visit his brother in Seir, and thus, without crossing the Jordan, go to Beer-sheba to Isaac; but he changed his plan, and whether the intention was carried out then or at a future period has not been recorded.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
