Bible commentary

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.

    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....
