3307. Verses 27, 28. And the boys grew up: and Esau was a man skillful in hunting, a man of the field; and Jacob was a perfect* man, dwelling in tents. And Isaac loved Esau, because his hunting was in his mouth; and Rebekah loved Jacob. "And the boys grew up," signifies the first state; "and Esau was a man skillful in hunting," signifies the good of life from truths sensuous and of memory-knowledge; "a man of the field," signifies the good of life from doctrinal things; "and Jacob was a perfect man," signifies truth; "dwelling in tents," signifies the derivative worship; "and Isaac loved Esau, because his hunting was in his mouth," signifies that the Divine good of the Lord's Divine rational loved the good of truth; "and Rebekah loved Jacob," signifies that the Divine truth of the Divine rational loved the doctrine of truth.
* "Perfect" is here used in the sense of "whole," "entire." The Latin is integer, and the Hebrew is tam, the same words that occur in the passage, "Mark the perfect man" (Ps. 37:37).
