Bible Commentary for Genesis 33:15

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 33:15


33:15 Esau offers some of his men to be his guard and convoy; but Jacob humbly refuseth his offer, only desiring he would not take it amiss that he did not accept it. What needs it? He is under the Divine protection. Those are sufficiently guarded that have God for their guard, and are under a convoy of his hosts, as Jacob was. Jacob adds, only let me find grace in the sight of my lord - Having thy favour I have all I need, all I desire from thee.


Discussion for Genesis 33:15

  • Don on Genesis 33:15
    Esau is of Satan's blood line. Genesis 26:34-35
    He married "Judith" a Canaanite women (birds of a feather flock together) the daughter of Cain the murderer of Abel.
    That rebellious union made Issac and Rebekah very bitter because he left the God of their fore- father's, for an idol worshiper.

    Genesis 33:2 Jacob puts his most precious family members (including Dinah) in the most rear section of the caravan. (farthest away from the prying eyes of Esau)

    Genesis 33:15 Esau is trying to trick Jacob into taking his blood line to join with Jacob's family members. (to prevent/pollute the pure seed-line of God's man "Jesus" from coming into this world and saving it!) Thank God, Jacob doesn't take the bait!

    Genesis 34:1-2 no more Mr. nice guy, Satan's evil spirits have Shechem rape Dinah! (Jacob's daughter)
    Shechem's dad - Hamor's answer to rape - let us impregnate the rest of your "Holy seeded" children with "my son the rapist" and his cousins blood-line to boot!
    2 MAJOR WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT!!!!
    Malachi 1:3 that is why God said, Jacob I loved,
    Esau I hated.

    Genesis 34:25 Thank Simeon and Levi the "Avenger Brother's" for Dinah, to putting an end to the humbling any more of their women folk!
