Vayishlah

Chapter 33;v.11

קַח־נָא אֶת־בִּרְכָתִי אֲשֶׁר הֻבָאת לָךְ כִּֽי־חַנַּנִי אֱלֹהִים וְכִי יֶשׁ־לִי־כֹל וַיִּֽפְצַר־בּוֹ וַיִּקָּֽח

Take, I beg you, my blessing that is brought to you; because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took it.

Jacob said he had “everything”, whereas Esau said he had “much”, (verse 9) but not “everything”. This is because vulgar and insensitive people, like Esau, never feel satisfied. Righteous and wise people, though, feel that whatever they have is enough. Therefore, Jacob, with his modest traits, asked God only for “bread to eat and clothing to wear” (28:20), and he said here that “I have everything”.
