is jacob lying, did the show make another mistake, or is there some reason that....?

When Jacob offered to grant a wish for Richard, and Richard asked for his wife back, Jacob said that he couldn't do that. But, he could bring Dogen's son back, supposedly. What's up with that? Is he just a liar, and needed Richard to live forever? Or is Dogen lying about who he actually sold his soul too?
