Bible Commentary for Genesis 33:4

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 33:4


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.
