Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Genesis 46:8-27

Israel’s household’s move to Egypt 46:8-27This section contains a list of the individuals in Jacob’s family about the time he moved to Egypt. As in chapter 31, when he left Paddan-aram, this move was also difficult for Jacob. Moses recorded a total of 70 persons (Genesis 46:27; cf. Exodus 1:5). The 66 referred to in Genesis 46:26 excluded Jacob, Joseph, Ephraim, and Manasseh, or perhaps Er and Onan (Genesis 46:12) and Ephraim and Manasseh. Stephen said there were 75, but he must have added... read more

In return God assures him of His continued favour and of the fulfilment of the promises made to Abraham. 4. Put his hand upon thine eyes] i.e. close them in death. 5.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers - Genesis 46:8

GENEALOGICAL TABLE OF THE ISRAELITES.(8) These are the names of the children of Israel which came into Egypt.—This document, consisting of Genesis 46:8-27, is one that would be of the highest importance to the Israelites, when taking possession of Canaan, being as it were their title-deed to the land. Accordingly we find that it is drawn up in a legal manner, representing as sons some who were really grandsons, but who took as heads of families the place usually held by sons. We next find that... read more

L. M. Grant's Commentary on the Bible - Genesis 46:1-34

JACOB AND HIS FAMILY MOVE TO EGYPT (vs.1-27) Nothing is said of the great amount of preparation they must make for their journey, but Jacob is said to take the journey with all that he had, which of course included all his family. On his way he stopped at Beersheba (the well of the oath), which indicates his remembrance of the promise of God on which he was dependent. It is good to see him offering sacrifices there. That night God spoke to him in a vision, a reminder of the dream God gave... read more

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - Genesis 46:1-34

JOSEPH ’S HISTORY DISPENSATIONAL ASPECT OF JACOB’S HISTORY Following F.W. Grant in the Numerical Bible, the life of Jacob gives as its lesson the story of that discipline by which the Spirit of God brings us from weakness to power, from nature’s strength to that wholesome weakness in which alone is strength. But for this, natural strength must be crippled, which is provided for in two ways: in allowing us to realize the power of another nature (Esau) and in the direct dealing of God with our... read more
