September 12, Genesis 31:33-55 A treaty between Jacob and Laban

After Laban makes his accusations and the idols can't be found, Jacob rises with righteous indignation. I can certainly understand his anger. The text here says that Jacob served for 20 years, other sources indicate that he served for 41. I suppose the number isn't as important as the fact that Laban continued to change the agreement. The man was a scheming cheat, and his behavior is reflected in his daughter Rachael. Just as the behavior of most parents are reflected in their children. Finally Jacob has had enough. They'v established a peace but it's not a friendly peace. They've burned bridges, Laban can not pass this point to Jacob and likewise Jacob can not go back to Laban. This becomes important in the coming chapter.
