Using God to deceive

Jacob, disguised as Esau, approached his father,

“But Isaac said to his son, ‘How is it that you have found it so quickly, my son?’ And he said, ‘Because the Lord your God brought it to me’” (Genesis 27:20).

Of course, we know that Jacob’s mother had worked and encouraged the deceit, but then Jacob sought to make it sound as though he credited God.

Yes, let us give glory to God, but not when we deceive people.
