      1  Isaac, because of famine, sojourns in Gerar, and the Lord
        instructs and blesses him.
     7  He is reproved by Abimelech for denying his wife.
    12  He grows rich, and the Philistines envy his prosperity.
    18  He digs Esek, Sitnah, and Rehoboth.
    23  God appears to him at Beer-sheba, and blesses him; and
        Abimelech makes a covenant with him.
    34  Esau's wives.

    VERSE 12 
     - sowed.
      The author of the "History of the Piratical States of Barbary"
      observes, (p. 44,) that the Moors of that country are divided
      into tribes like the Arabians, and like them dwell in tents,
      formed into itinerant villages; that 'these wanderers farm
      lands of the inhabitants of the towns, sow and cultivate them,
      paying their rent with the produce, such as fruits, corn, wax,
      etc.  They are very skilful in choosing the most advantageous
      soils for every season, and very careful to avoid the Turkish
      troops, the violence of the one little suiting the simplicity
      of the other.'  It is natural to suppose, that Isaac possessed
      the like sagacity, when he sowed in the land of Gerar, and
      received that year an hundred-fold.
    
    - received.  Heb. found.  an hundredfold.
       * Ps 67:6; 72:16 Ec 11:6 Zec 8:12 Mt 13:8,23 Mr 4:8 1Co 3:6
       * 2Co 9:10,11 Ga 6:7,8
    - blessed.
       * :3,29; 24:1,35; 30:30 Job 42:12
    
    
    VERSE 13 
     - And the man waxed great.
      Dr. Adam Clarke remarks, that there is a strange and
      observable occurrence of the same term in the original, which
      is literally, 'And the man was GREAT, and he went, going on,
      and was GREAT, until that he was exceeding GREAT.'  How simple
      is this language, and yet how forcible!
    
    - waxed great.
       * Ge 24:35 Ps 112:3
    - went forward.  Heb. went going.
    
    
    VERSE 14 
     - had possession.
       * Ge 12:16; 13:2 Job 1:3; 42:12 Ps 112:3; 144:13,14 Pr 10:22
    - servants.  or, husbandry.  envied.
       * Ge 37:11 1Sa 18:9 Job 5:2 Ps 112:10 Pr 27:4 Ec 4:4
    
    
    VERSE 15 
     - his father's.
       * Ge 21:30
    - had stopped.
      In those countries, a well of water was a great acquisition;
      and hence, this mode of injuring new settlers, or revenging
      themselves on their enemies, is still resorted to among the
      inhabitants.
    
    
    VERSE 16 
     - Go.
      Dr. A. Clarke observes, that this is the first instance on
      record of what was termed among the Greeks, ostracism, i.e.,
      the banishment of person from the state, of whose power,
      influence, or riches, the people were jealous.
    
    - mightier.
       * Ex 1:9
    
    VERSE 17
    
    
    VERSE 18 
     - in the days.
      Houbigant contends, that instead of bimey, 'in the days,' we
      should read, avdey, 'servants;' agreeably to the Samaritan,
      Septuagint, Syriac, and Vulgate:  'And Isaac digged again the
      wells of water which the servants of Abraham his father had
      digged.'
    
    - and he.
       * Ge 21:31 Nu 32:38 Ps 16:4 Ho 2:17 Zec 13:2
    
    
    VERSE 19 
     - springing water.  Heb. living.
       * So 4:15 Joh 4:10,11; 7:38
    
    
    VERSE 20 
     - did strive.
       * Ge 21:25
    - Esek.  i.e., Contention.
    
    
    VERSE 21 
     - Sitnah.  i.e., Hatred.
       * Ezr 4:6
    
    
    VERSE 22 
     - digged.
      The wells in Arabia are generally dug in the rock:  their
      mouths are about six feet in diameter, and they are from
      nineteen to twenty feet in depth.  But Niebuhr informs us,
      that many wells are from 160 to 170 feet deep.
    
    - Rehoboth.  i.e., Room.  the Lord.
       * Ps 4:1; 18:19; 118:5
    - be fruitful.
       * Ge 17:6; 28:3; 41:52 Ex 1:7
    
    
    VERSE 23 
     - Beer-sheba.
       * Ge 21:31; 46:1 Jud 20:1
    
    
    VERSE 24 
     - I am the.
       * Ge 15:1; 17:7; 24:12; 28:13; 31:5 Ex 3:6 Mt 22:32 Ac 7:32
    - fear.
       * :3,4; 13:16; 22:19 Ps 27:1-3; 46:1,2 Isa 12:2; 41:10,13-15; 43:1,2; 44:2
       * Isa 51:7,12 Lu 12:32 Heb 13:6 Re 1:17
    
    
    VERSE 25 
     - builded.
       * Ge 8:20; 12:7; 13:18; 22:9; 33:20; 35:1 Ex 17:15
    - called.
       * Ps 116:17
    
    
    VERSE 26 
     - Abimelech.
       * Ge 20:3; 21:22-32
    - Phichol.
      Phichol, as well as Abimelech, 'father king,' seems to have
      been a name of office or dignity among the Philistines; for it
      is not probable that they were the same as are mentioned in
      the days of Abraham (ch. 22 21:22, 32.)
    
    
    VERSE 27 
     - seeing.
       * :14,16 Jud 11:7 Ac 7:9,14,27,35 Re 3:9
    - sent me.
       * :16

       * 1Co 14:25 Heb 13:5
    - Let there.
       * Ge 21:31,32; 24:3,41; 31:49-53 Heb 6:16
    
    
    VERSE 29 
     - That thou wilt.  Heb. If thou shalt, etc.  not.
       * :11,14,15
    - the blessed.
       * :12; 12:2; 21:22; 22:17; 24:31 Ps 115:15
    
    VERSE 30
        * Ge 19:3; 21:8; 31:54 Ro 12:18 Heb 12:14 1Pe 4:9
    
    
    VERSE 31 
     - betimes.
       * Ge 19:2; 21:14; 22:3; 31:55
    - sware.
       * Ge 14:22; 21:23,31,32; 25:33; 31:44 1Sa 14:24; 20:3,16,17; 30:15
       * Heb 6:16
    
    
    VERSE 32 
     - We have.
       * :25 Pr 2:4,5; 10:4; 13:4 Mt 7:7
    
    
    VERSE 33 
     - Shebah.  i.e., an oath.  therefore.
       * Ge 21:31
    - Beer-sheba.  i.e., the well of the oath.
       * :28
      This may have been the same city which was called Beer-sheba a
      hundred years before this, in the time of Abraham; but as the
      well, from which it had its name originally, was closed up by
      the Philistines, the name of the place might have been
      abolished with the well; when, therefore, Isaac re-opened it,
      he restored the ancient name of the place.
    
    
    VERSE 34 
     - A.M. 2208.  B.C. 1796.  And Esau.
       * Ge 36:2,5,13
    - the daughter.
       * Ge 24:3 Ex 34:16 1Co 7:2 Heb 12:16
    - Bashemath.
       * Ge 36:2
    
    
    VERSE 35
