CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
33:15 Esau offers some of his men to be his guard and convoy; but Jacob humbly refuseth his offer, only desiring he would not take it amiss that he did not accept it. What needs it? He is under the Divine protection. Those are sufficiently guarded that have God for their guard, and are under a convoy of his hosts, as Jacob was. Jacob adds, only let me find grace in the sight of my lord - Having thy favour I have all I need, all I desire from thee.
So Esau turned around and started back to Seir that same day.
"I hope I continue to please you, sir," she replied. "You have comforted me by speaking so kindly to me, even though I am not one of your workers."
1 Samuel 1:18
"Oh, thank you, sir!" she exclaimed. Then she went back and began to eat again, and she was no longer sad.
