Genesis 26:15

_ _ all the wells which his father’s servants had digged ... the Philistines had stopped, etc. — The same base stratagem for annoying those against whom they have taken an umbrage is practiced still by choking the wells with sand or stones, or defiling them with putrid carcases.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 26:12-25.
