{Genesis 27:39} And Isaac 3327 his father 1 answered 6030 z8799 and said 559 z8799 unto x413 him, Behold, x2009 thy dwelling 4186 shall be x1961 the fatness 4924 x4480 of the earth, 776 and of the dew 2919 x4480 of heaven 8064 from above; 5920 x4480
Behold:
"And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob. ... Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau [is] Edom." {Gen 36:6-8} + "And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt." {Jsh 24:4} + "By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come." {Hbr 11:20}
the fatness:
or, of the fatness, "Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:" {Gen 27:28}; It is here foretold, says Bp. Newton, that as to temporal advantages, the two brothers should be much alike. (See note on "Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:" {Gen 27:28}.) Esau had cattle, beasts, and substance in abundance, and he went to dwell in Mount Seir of his own accord. When the Israelites desired leave to pass through the territories of Edom, the country abounded with fruitful fields and vineyards ("Let us pass, I pray thee, through thy country: we will not pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither will we drink [of] the water of the wells: we will go by the king's [high] way, we will not turn to the right hand nor to the left, until we have passed thy borders." {Num 20:17}).
