Genesis 25:34 Parallel
Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

25:34 He did eat and drink, and rise up and went his way - Without any serious reflections upon the ill bargain he had made, or any shew of regret.

From these prerogatives there will arise to the elect in heaven, five notable effects:-- 1. They shall know God with a perfect knowledge (1 Cor. i. 10), so far as creatures can possibly comprehend the Creator. For there we shall see the Word, the Creator; and in the Word, all creatures that by the Word were created; so that we shall not need to learn (of the things which were made) the knowledge of him by whom all things were made. The most excellent creatures in this life, are but as a dark veil
