Genesis 35:29 No Conflict in Israel

Genesis 35:29 (KJV)
And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

The differences between Jacob and Esau were huge. 

  • It caused what amounted to a twenty-year severance between them. 
  • It left Jacob away for his mother’s burial. 
  • It set in motion the events resulting in Jacob’s children by four women. 

And yet they reconciled so successfully that, when their herds grew large, it was Esau who stepped out of the Promised Land, effectively acknowledging that God had given it to the children of Jacob – the Jews. 

  • Abraham had no conflict with the people there before him. 
  • Isaac had little conflict
  • Esau acknowledged it belonged to Jacob

The people of Jacob have proven that they would have little conflict with the others who live there even today, if only they would accept that God put them there and live peaceably beside them.
