Shelves: commentaries
Definitely a handy concise commentary to have, however, quite the opposite of what I was searching for at the time. Sailhamer does a great job at exposition of the text, however, many of the tough texts are left ambiguous. The content of this book would be suitable to make of the study notes of a bible, but not a commentary in and of itself.

“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.” 0 likes
