I. GOD REQUIRES ENTIRE DEVOTEDNESS AND FAITH. Edom is allied to the true kingdom, but is not one with it. We may keep in mind the relationship between the descendants of the two brothers, that we may learn the more clearly to distinguish the true heirs of the blessing.

(1) the revelation of God and
(2) the special manifestation of his favor, and out of which should come forth
(3) the people among the peoples, the kingdom among the kingdoms, the Goshen in the Egypt, the seed of life in the world of death. - R.
For their riches were more.
"The fear of God and sweet content
Yield riches that will ne'er be spent.".
