Wesley's Notes for Genesis 28:15


28:15 Behold I am with thee - Wherever we are, we are safe, if we have God's favourable presence with us. He knew not, but God foresaw what hardships he would meet with in his uncle's service, and therefore promiseth to preserve him in all places. God knows how to give his people graces and comforts accommodated to the events that shall be, as well as to those that are. He was now going as an exile into a place far distant, but God promiseth him to bring him again to this land. He seemed to be forsaken of all his friends, but God gives him this assurance, I will not leave thee.


Discussion for Genesis 28

    I see that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother,but Esau did not,instead, making his parents more griefed of mind by taking ungodly women to wife,which ultimately cost Esau and his decendants a lot of trouble and ungodliness which eventually lead to the demise of the Edomites. I believe Isaac instructed Esau as well as Jacob the things of God,but Jacob had ears to hear the things of God.

    'Behold i am with thee' this verse signifies God's love for His children and continual guidance to all who will look up to him for grace and strength to run this race.

    George, the subject is not Isaac or any of his family though they all fail because of their selfish human means and favoritism by both parents. God told Rebekah from thee beginning before her sons were born and I am sure she told Isaac that the elder brother Esau would serve the younger Jacob Gen. 25:23. Therefore, that was God 's will because he knew Jacob would love and value him and his blessings far more than Esau. God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost is the subject of this story and every story in the Holy bible and his will.
