And God appeared unto Jacob again
At Bethel, as he had at Shechem, when he bid him go thither, (
35:1 ) ; or rather as he had at the brook Jabbok, where he
said to him the same things as here, ( Genesis
32:28 ) , though Jarchi interprets it of his appearing again
to him at the same place at Bethel, where he had appeared to him
the first time, at his going to Haran, and now a second time:
when he came out of Padanaram;
or returned from thence: and blessed him;
with the same blessings as before, renewing and confirming them.
Jarchi says, with the blessing of mourners, because of the death
of his mother, and her nurse.
