    Clarke's Commentary on Genesis 27:35

    Hath taken away thy blessing - This blessing, which was a different thing from the birthright, seems to consist of two parts:

    1. The dominion, generally and finally, over the other part of the family; and,

    2. Being the progenitor of the Messiah.

    But the former is more explicitly declared than the latter. See note on Genesis 25:31.
