EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Gave provender unto the asses.—Notice the humane Eastern custom of attending first the wants of the animals.
They washed their feet.—One of the first necessities for personal comfort after a journey in hot countries, and where only sandals are worn (Genesis 18:4; Genesis 24:32; Genesis 43:24; Luke 7:44; John 13:5; 1Timothy 5:10).They washed their feet, as they used to do to travellers in these hot countries, Genesis 18:4 19:2 24:32, &c.
and gave provender unto the asses; this is mentioned first, it being then perhaps, as now, the first thing that a careful man is concerned for, to see that his cattle is taken care of, and then himself; and such a method this ancient good man took with his guest:
and they washed their feet; which was commonly done to strangers in those hot countries, and was very refreshing, see Genesis 18:4.So he brought him into his house, and gave provender unto the asses: and they washed their feet, and did eat and drink.
