the gemara mentions a BRAISA, mentioning 4 people who died only as a result of the Snake's activity in Breishis.
Why wasn't Yitzchak included? I don't mean to bring up any dirt, but was there a sin he committed that I missed?
thanks...and I wonder if ANYONE brought this up. Rosh, Rif ron, Rambam, etc. I didn't see anyone ask it, so it must be OBVIOUS.
except to me.

The omission of Avraham and Yakov from the list also seems to be odd. However, to answer your question, the Midrash takes Yitzchak to task for loving Esav, whom Hash-m hated.
