{Genesis 27:15} And Rebekah 7259 took 3947 z8799 x853 goodly y2532 x2530 raiment 899 of her eldest 1419 son 1121 Esau, 6215 which x834 [were] with x854 her in the house, 1004 and put them upon 3847 z8686 x853 Jacob 3290 her younger 6996 son: 1121
goodly raiment:
Heb. desirable, "And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son [is] as the smell of a field which the LORD hath blessed:" {Gen 27:27}; The Septuagint translates it "a goodly robe," which was a long garment that great men used to wear ("Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;" {Lke 20:46} + "But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put [it] on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on [his] feet:" {Lke 15:22}). The priest afterwards in the law had "holy garments" to minister in ("And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty. ... And these [are] the garments which they shall make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office." {Exd 28:2-4}). Whether the first-born before the law had such to minister in is not certain: for, had they been common garments, why did not Esau himself or his wives keep them? But being, in likelihood, holy robes, received from their ancestors, the mother of the family kept them in sweet chests, from moths and the like; whereupon it is said ("And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son [is] as the smell of a field which the LORD hath blessed:" {Gen 27:27}), "Isaac smelled the smell of his garments."
