“The marriage of Esau to the daughter of Ishmael reminds us that the promised offspring of Abraham was determined, not by the will of human beings, but by the will of God. The families of the two “older” sons (Ishmael and Esau) were united in the marriage, but neither received the blessing promised to Abraham.”
John H. Sailhamer, NIV Bible Study Commentary

“The seven extra years that Jacob had to serve Laban appear as a repayment for his treatment of Esau. His past had caught up with him, and he had to accept the results and serve Laban seven more years.”
John H. Sailhamer, NIV Bible Study Commentary

“Human schemes can never carry out the plans of God.”
