Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 49:33

_ _ when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons — It is probable that he was supernaturally strengthened for this last momentous office of the patriarch, and that when the divine afflatus ceased, his exhausted powers giving way, he yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 49:28-33.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 49:33

And when Jacob had made an end of commanding of his sons — He addressed himself to his dying work. He put himself into a posture for dying; having sat upon the bed — side to bless his sons, the spirit of prophecy bringing fresh oil to his expiring lamp, when that work was done, he gathered up his feet into the bed, that he might lie along, not only as one patiently submitting to the stroke, but as one chearfully composing himself to rest. He then freely resigned his spirits into the hand of God, the father of spirit; he yielded up the ghost; and his separated soul went to the assembly of the souls of the faithful, who after they are delivered from the burden of the flesh are in joy and felicity; he was gathered to his people.

Genesis 49:33

And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he (x) gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.
