Bible Commentary for Genesis 33:2

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 33:2


33:3 He bowed - Though he feared Esau as an enemy, yet he did obeisance to him as an elder brother.

33:4 And Esau ran to meet him - Not in passion but in love. Embraced him, fell on his neck and kissed him - God hath the hearts of all men in his hands, and can turn them when and how he pleases. He can of a sudden convert enemies into friends, as he did two Sauls, one by restraining grace, #1Sam 26:21|,25, the other by renewing grace, #Acts 9:21|. And they wept - Jacob wept for joy to be thus kindly received; Esau perhaps wept for grief and shame to think of the ill design he had conceived against his brother.
