Genesis 36 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 36

Esau and his descendants.

- The registers in this chapter show the faithfulness of God to his promise to Abraham. Esau is here called Edom, that name which kept up the remembrance of his selling his birth-right for a mess of pottage. Esau continued the same profane despiser of heavenly things. In outward prosperity and honour, the children of the covenant are often behind, and those that are out of the covenant get the start. We may suppose it a trial to the faith of God's Israel, to hear of the pomp and power of the kings of Edom, while they were bond-slaves in Egypt; but those that look for great things from God, must be content to wait for them; God's time is the best time. Mount Seir is called the land of their possession. Canaan was at this time only the land of promise. Seir was in the possession of the Edomites. The children of this world have their all in hand, and nothing in hope, ( Luke 16:25 ) ; while the children of God have their all in hope, and next to nothing in hand. But, all things considered, it is beyond compare better to have Canaan in promise, than mount Seir in possession.

Genesis 36 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

CHAPTER 36

Genesis 36:1-43 . POSTERITY OF ESAU.

1. these are the generations--history of the leading men and events (compare Genesis 2:4 ).
Esau who is Edom--A name applied to him in reference to the peculiar color of his skin at birth [ Genesis 25:25 ], rendered more significant by his inordinate craving for the red pottage [ Genesis 25:30 ], and also by the fierce sanguinary character of his descendants (compare Ezekiel 25:12 , Obadiah 1:10 ).

2, 3. Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan--There were three, mentioned under different names; for it is evident that Bashemath is the same as Mahalath ( Genesis 28:9 ), since they both stand in the relation of daughter to Ishmael and sister to Nebajoth; and hence it may be inferred that Adah is the same as Judith, Aholibamah as Bathsemath ( Genesis 26:34 ). It was not unusual for women, in that early age, to have two names, as Sarai was also Iscah [ Genesis 11:29 ]; and this is the more probable in the case of Esau's wives, who of course would have to take new names when they went from Canaan to settle in mount Seir.

6, 7. Esau . . . went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob--literally, "a country," without any certain prospect of a settlement. The design of this historical sketch of Esau and his family is to show how the promise ( Genesis 27:39 Genesis 27:40 ) was fulfilled. In temporal prosperity he far exceeds his brother; and it is remarkable that, in the overruling providence of God, the vast increase of his worldly substance was the occasion of his leaving Canaan and thus making way for the return of Jacob.

8. Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir--This was divinely assigned as his possession ( Joshua 24:4 , Deuteronomy 2:5 ).

15-19. dukes--The Edomites, like the Israelites, were divided into tribes, which took their names from his sons. The head of each tribe was called by a term which in our version is rendered "duke"--not of the high rank and wealth of a British peer, but like the sheiks or emirs of the modern East, or the chieftains of highland clans. Fourteen are mentioned who flourished contemporaneously.

20-30. Sons of Seir the Horite land--native dukes, who were incorporated with those of the Edomite race.

24. This was that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness--The word "mules" is, in several ancient versions, rendered "water springs"; and this discovery of some remarkable fountain was sufficient, among a wandering or pastoral people, to entitle him to such a distinguishing notice.

31-39. kings of Edom--The royal power was not built on the ruins of the dukedoms, but existed at the same time.

40-43. Recapitulation of the dukes according to their residences.
