Wesley's Notes for Genesis 35:28


35:28 The age and death of Isaac are here recorded, though it appears by computation that he died not 'till many years after Joseph was sold into Egypt, and much about the time that he was preferred there. Isaac, a mild quiet man, lived the longest of all the patriarchs, for he was one hundred and eighty years old: Abraham was but one hundred and seventy - five. Isaac lived about forty years after he had made his will, #Ge 27:2|. We shall not die an hour the sooner, but abundance the better, for our timely setting of our heart and house in order. Particular notice is taken of the amicable agreement of Esau and Jacob in solemnizing their father's funeral, #Ge 35:29|, to shew how God had wonderfully changed Esau's mind, since he vowed his brother's murder, upon his father's death, #Ge 27:41|. God has many ways of preventing ill men from doing the mischief they in tended; he can either tie their hands, or turn their hearts.

    David their were wicked tribes that Jacob, "Israel" in his travel to Bethel had to pass, with God's protection they could not touch them. He had God's full shield on. he lost so much as it was his mother's nurse, his wife and then his son to sin, he still knew he had the grace of God. Amazing Grace!
  • A disciple
    Jacob's life seemed to be just one trouble after another, and sorrow over sorrow; he lost his mother's nurse, his wife, his father, and later a son; but nothing was a sign of God's disapproval, but rather, God came down and spoke to him and guided him away from a bad situation and blessed him with the same blessing and promise as He gave to Abraham and Isaac; and He gave Jacob a new name, Israel.

    Verse 4: Jacob had to make sure he "cleaned house" in regards to the false gods that his family had accumulated.
