Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 27:18-27.


Genesis 27:27

_ _ the smell of my son is as of a field — The aromatic odors of the Syrian fields and meadows, often impart a strong fragrance to the person and clothes, as has been noticed by many travellers.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 27:18-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 27:27-31

He kissed him; in token of particular affection to him. Those that are blessed of God are kissed with the kisses of his mouth, and they do by love and loyalty kiss the son, Psalms 2:12. 2. He praised him. Upon occasion of the sweet smell of his garments he said, See the smell of my son is as the smell of a field which the Lord hath blessed — That is, like that of the most fragrant flowers and spices. Three things Jacob is here blessed with, Plenty, Genesis 27:28. Heaven and earth concurring to make him rich. Power, Genesis 27:29. Particularly dominion over his brethren, viz. Esau and his posterity. Prevalency with God, and a great interest in heaven, Cursed be every one that curseth thee — Let God be a friend to all thy friends, and an enemy to all thine enemies. Now, certainly more is comprised in this blessing than appears at first; it must amount to an entail of the promise of the Messiah: that was in the patriarchal dialect the blessing; something spiritual doubtless is included in it. First, That from him should come the Messiah, that should have a sovereign dominion on earth. See Numbers 24:19. Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, the star and scepter, Numbers 24:17. Jacob's dominion over Esau was to be only typical of this, Genesis 49:10. Secondly, That from him should come the church that should be particularly owned and favoured by Heaven. It was part of the blessing of Abraham when he was first called to be the father of the faithful, Genesis 12:3. I will bless them that bless thee; therefore when Isaac afterwards confirmed the blessing to Jacob, he called it the blessing of Abraham, Genesis 28:4.
