Treasury of Scripture

And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

And the man waxed great. Dr. Adam Clarke remarks, that there is a strange and observable occurrence of the same term in the original, which is literally, 'And the man was GREAT, and he went, going on, and was GREAT, until that he was exceeding GREAT.' How simple is this language, and yet how forcible!

waxed great.

Genesis 24:35 And the LORD has blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: …

Psalm 112:3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endures for ever.

went forward. Heb. went going.

Verse 13. - And the man waxed great, - like his father before him (cf. Genesis 24:1, 35) - and went forward, - literally, went going, the verb followed by the infinitive expressing constant growth or progressive increase (cf. Genesis 8:3; Genesis 12:9; Judges 4:24) - and grew until he became very great - "as any other farmer would who reaped such harvests" ('Land and Book'). And the man waxed great,.... In substance, as well as in honour and glory, among men:

and went forward; in the world, and in the increase of worldly things:

and grew until he became very great: as he must needs be, since Abraham his father left him all that he had, who was very rich in cattle, in gold and silver, and had been increasing ever since; and especially since he came to Gerar, where he was gradually increasing, until he became to be exceeding great indeed, even the greatest man in all the country, yea, greater than King Abimelech himself, as it seems, from Genesis 26:16. 26:12-17 God blessed Isaac. Be it observed, for the encouragement of poor tenants who occupy other people's lands, and are honest and industrious, that God blessed him with a great increase. The Philistines envied Isaac. It is an instance of the vanity of the world; for the more men have of it, the more they are envied, and exposed to censure and injury. Also of the corruption of nature; for that is an ill principle indeed, which makes men grieve at the good of others. They made Isaac go out of their country. That wisdom which is from above, will teach us to give up our right, and to draw back from contentions. If we are wrongfully driven from one place, the Lord will make room for us in another.
