Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 35:8

_ _ Deborah, Rebekah’s nurse, died — This event seems to have taken place before the solemnities were commenced. Deborah (Hebrew, a “bee”), supposing her to have been fifty years on coming to Canaan, had attained the great age of a hundred eighty. When she was removed from Isaac’s household to Jacob’s, is unknown. But it probably was on his return from Mesopotamia; and she would have been of invaluable service to his young family. Old nurses, like her, were not only honored, but loved as mothers; and, accordingly, her death was the occasion of great lamentation. She was buried under the oak — hence called “the terebinth of tears” (compare 1 Kings 13:14). God was pleased to make a new appearance to him after the solemn rites of devotion were over. By this manifestation of His presence, God testified His acceptance of Jacob’s sacrifice and renewed the promise of the blessings guaranteed to Abraham and Isaac [Genesis 35:11, Genesis 35:12]; and the patriarch observed the ceremony with which he had formerly consecrated the place, comprising a sacramental cup, along with the oil that he poured on the pillar, and reimposing the memorable name [Genesis 35:14]. The whole scene was in accordance with the character of the patriarchal dispensation, in which the great truths of religion were exhibited to the senses, and “the world’s grey fathers” taught in a manner suited to the weakness of an infantile condition.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 35:6-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 35:8

There he buried Deborah, Rebekah's nurse — We have reason to think that Jacob, after he came to Canaan, while his family dwelt near Shechem, went himself to visit his father Isaac at Hebron. Rebekah probably was dead, but her old nurse (of whom mention is made Genesis 24:59,) survived her, and Jacob took her to his family. While they were at Beth — el she died, and died lamented, so much lamented, that the oak under which she was buried, was called Allon — bachuth, the oak of weeping.
