Bible Commentary for Genesis 27:3

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 27:3


27:3 Take me some venison that I may; bless thee - Esau must go a hunting and bring some venison. In this he designed not so much the refreshment of his own spirits, as the receiving a fresh instance of his son's, filial duty and affection to him, before he bestowed this favour upon him. That my soul may bless thee before I die - Prayer is the work of the soul, and not of the lips only; as the soul must be employed in blessing God, #Psa 103:1|, so it must be in blessing ourselves and others: the blessing will not go to the heart, if it do not come from the heart.


Discussion for Genesis 27:3

    I am wondering about baptism. I was Baptised when I was a baby. Do I need to be Baptised as an adult? I am a reborn Christian June 2, 2014.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Genesis 27:3
    The bible never speaks of infant baptism. You can be baptized again as an adult. Just a couple of things to know. Baptism (Water baptism) has no part in your salvation. A person is baptized after they get saved as an outward expression of an inward change. In other words, it shows a testimony that that you have received Christ, that you died of your sin, was buried with Him, and rose to a new life in Christ.

    I am a Hunter Education instructor in the state of Arkansas...Almost every class, I have some person say I don 't believe in hunting...I ask them "Do you believe in the Bible? " every time it is yes...then I tell them to read Gen 27:3....
  • Carter - in Reply on Genesis 27:3
    Why exactly would someone take a hunter education class if they didn't believe in hunting to begin with?
