“Esau’s Repentance”

 “When he [Esau] afterward, desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, (for he found no place of repentance), though he sought it diligently with tears.” –  Hebrews 12:17 R.V.

Esau cried, not for his sin of selling his birthright, but for his loss in missing the blessing – John Trapp

Sin may be the occasion of great sorrow when there is no sorrow for sin – John Owen

Some tears God hath no bottle for – Richard Sibbes

Many have the space of repentance who have not the grace of repentance – William Secker
