Hebrews 11:20 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Blessed (εὐλόγησεν)

See on John 12:13.

Concerning things to come (καὶ περὶ μελλόντων)

A.V. Omits καὶ which gives an emphasis to the following words. Isaac pronounced a blessing, and that concerning things to come; things beyond the lifetime of Jacob and Esau. See Genesis 27:29, Genesis 27:39. The blessing was an act of faith. Isaac's confidence in the power of his blessing to convey the good which it promised was "the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen," founded on the promise of Genesis 17:5.
