In this chapter we have, I. Isaac in adversity, by reason of a famine in the land, which, 1. Obliges him to change his quarters, Gen. 26:1. But, 2. God visits him with direction and comfort, Gen. 26:2-5. 3. He foolishly denies his wife, being in distress and is reproved for it by Abimelech, Gen. 26:6-11. II. Isaac in prosperity, by the blessing of God upon him, Gen. 26:12-14. And, 1. The Philistines were envious at him, Gen. 26:14-17. 2. He continued industrious in his business, Gen. 26:18-23. 3. God appeared to him, and encouraged him, and he devoutly acknowledged God, Gen. 26:24, 25. 4. The Philistines, at length, made court to him, and made a covenant with him, Gen. 26:26-33. 5. The disagreeable marriage of his son Esau was an alloy to the comfort of his prosperity, Gen. 26:34, 35.
