Of Esau. Thus, too often our voice contradicts our hands or actions! (Haydock)

Hippolytus of Rome

AD 235
This signifies that the Word, who in Jacob prefigured the mysteries, has also become the voice of the prophets, since he is the one who predicts in them what will happen. On the contrary, his hands have become hands of Esau. In fact he [the Word] was executed because of the sins of the people.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
