Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 35:20

_ _ and Jacob set a pillar on her grave ... unto this day — The spot still marked out as the grave of Rachel exactly agrees with the Scriptural record, being about a mile from Beth-lehem. Anciently it was surmounted by a pyramid of stones, but the present tomb is a Mohammedan erection.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 35:16-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 35:20

And Jacob set up a pillar upon her grave — So that it was known long after to be Rachel's sepulchre, 1 Samuel 10:2, and Providence so ordered it, that this place afterwards fell in the lot of Benjamin. Jacob set up a pillar in remembrance of his joys Genesis 35:14, and here he set up one in remembrance of his sorrows; for as it may be of use to ourselves to keep both in mind, so it may be of use to others to transmit the memorials of both.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 35:20

And Jacob set a (g) pillar upon her grave: that [is] the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day.

(g) The ancient fathers used this ceremony to testify their hope of the resurrection to come, which was not generally revealed.
