Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 37:35

_ _ and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son — not the earth, for Joseph was supposed to be torn in pieces, but the unknown place — the place of departed souls, where Jacob expected at death to meet his beloved son.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 37:31-36.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 37:35

He refused to be comforted — He resolved to go down to the grave mourning; Great affection to any creature doth but prepare for so much the greater affliction, when it is either removed from us, or embittered to us: inordinate love commonly ends in immoderate grief.
