John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 49:20

Concerning Asher, he foretells, That it should be a rich tribe, replenished not only with bread for necessity, but with fatness, with dainties, royal dainties, and these exported out of Asher, to other tribes, perhaps to other lands. The God of nature has provided for us not only necessaries but dainties, that we might call him a bountiful benefactor; yet, whereas all places are competently furnished with necessaries, only some places afford dainties. Corn is more common than spices. Were the supports of luxury as universal as the supports of life, the world would be worse than it is, and that needs not.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 49:20

Out of Asher his (p) bread [shall be] fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

(p) He will abound in corn and pleasant fruits.
