{Genesis 27:22} And Jacob 3290 went near 5066 z8799 unto x413 Isaac 3327 his father; 1 and he felt 4959 z8799 him, and said, 559 z8799 The voice 6963 [is] Jacob's 3290 voice, 6963 but the hands 3027 [are] the hands 3027 of Esau. 6215
The voice:
How wonderful, says Mr. Scott, is that difference which there is betwixt the faces and the voices of the several individuals of the human species! Scarcely any two of the innumerable millions are exactly alike in either, and yet the difference cannot be defined or described! The power, wisdom, and kindness of our Creator should be admired and adored in this remarkable circumstance; for they are very visible. This description of Jacob is not unaptly accommodated to the character of a hypocrite. His voice, his language, is that of a Christian; his hands, or conduct, that of an ungodly man, but the judgment will proceed from God, the Judge of all, at the last day, as in the present case, not by the voice, but by the hands. "And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice [is] Jacob's voice, but the hands [are] the hands of Esau." {Gen 27:22}
