    Clarke's Commentary on Genesis 27:36

    Is not he rightly named Jacob? - See note on Genesis 25:26.

    He took away my birthright - So he might say with considerable propriety; for though he sold it to Jacob, yet as Jacob had taken advantage of his perishing situation, he considered the act as a species of robbery.
