Esav's Berakah review

27: 39,40 Esav said to his abba, "Do you have only one berakah, my abba ? Bless me, even me also, O my abba." So Esav lifted his voice and wept. Then Yitzchak his abba answered and said to him, "Hinei, your dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth (mish ma nei ha erets), and of the Tal shamayim (dew of heaven) from above; .And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother, and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.

Esav's material blessing was seen here

Later verse Gen 33:9, 11"Brother, I have plenty," Esav answered. "Keep what you have." ....Please take my gifts, for Elohim has been very generous to me. I have more than enough." Yaakov continued to insist, so Esav finally accepted them.  (New Living Translation)

Hebrews 11:20 By faith Yitzchak blessed Yaakov and  Esav , even regarding things to come.

Hebrews 12:16-17 Make sure that no one is immoral or godless like Esau. He traded his birthright as the oldest son for a single meal. And afterward, when he wanted his father's blessing, he was rejected. It was too late for repentance, even though he wept bitter tears (New Living Translation)

Comments: The  Edomites were the descendents of Esav. They inhabited a rich, fertile country which has given especially to them  (Dvarim 2:5) their country Mount Se'ir was traversed by roads, though it was mountainous and rocky (Bamidbar 20:17; Yirmeyahu 49:16). Seir is land of idolatry. In Character Esav's descendence were shrewd, proud, self-confident, strong, cruel, and idolatrous (Jer 27:3; 49:7, 16, 19; Ezek 25:12; 2 Chr 25:14, 20) They inhabited the cities of Avith, Pau,  Bozrah and Teman and wee implacable enemies of Yisrael. However in Dvarim 23:7,8 Yah forbid Israel to hate them .Hebrews 11:20 is a prophetic picture of  Esav blessing but regard least among nation, However Elohim  is a righteousness. He has to  dealt with the sins of Esav's anger and pursue against Yisrael , has to be chasten Esav's arrogant to be brought down (Amos 1:11; Obadiah 1 Yechezkel 35)

The Generation of Esav Read Beresheit 36

Edom (called "Seir," Gen 32:3; 36:8) is the name of the country lying south of the ancient kingdom of Yehudah and extending from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba. It includes the ruins of Petra, and is bounded on the north by Moav. People by descendants of Esav (Beresheit 36:1 - 19), Edom has a remarkable prominence in the prophetic Word as (together with Moav) the scene of the final destruction of Goyim world-power in Ha Yom YHVH. See Armageddon (Rev 16:13 - 16; 19:17 - 21) and Times of the Goyim (Luke 21:24; Rev 16:19). Cp. Ps 137:7; Isa 34:1 - 8; 63:1 - 6;> Jer 49:17 - 22; Ezek 25:12 - 14; Obad 1 - 21.

These are the chiefs that came from sons of Se'ir the Horites (cave dwellers): - Lotan, Shoval, Ziveon, Anah, Dishon Ezer and Dishan

The Horites, or Hurrians, were completely forgotten for thousands of years. It has now been discovered that they were a large group of people who settled in northern Mesopotamia, in Syria, and in Palestine before 2000 B.C. Thousands of tablets containing their business documents and other records have been recovered by excavation.

Lotan - Hori, Hemam

These are the melechim that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any melech over the children of Yisrael

It is characteristic of Scripture that the Melechim of Edom should be named before the Melech of Yisrael. The principle is stated in 1 Cor 15:46. First things are "natural," man's best, and always fail; second things are "spiritual," Elohim's things, and succeed. Adam - Moshiach; Kain - Abel; Kain's posterity -Seth's posterity; Saul - David, etc. The mention of kings at this point, when Yisrael actually had no kings until the time of Shaul (1 Shemuel 10), has been used by some as an argument against Mosaic authorship. The answer to the objection is found in Beresheit 17:6,16, where already Avraham and Sarah were promised kings among their descendants.

  2. Yovav Ben Zerah (Bozrah)
