Earthly Authority

"Let peoples serve you, and nations bow down to you."
GENESIS 27:29

Earthly Authority
The second part of the blessing has to do with the state and pertains to authority; for Jacob is appointed lord over peoples and nations. His descendants will be princes and kings, not only heads of households. For peoples will serve him when they will be subjected, not to heads of households but to princes and kings. Not only one people but many peoples and many tribes will be subject. This was also fulfilled at the time of the judges and the kings, when the children of Israel occupied the land of Canaan, when they not only subjected the Idumaeans but also exterminated all the peoples and kings of that land.
