Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 31:22-24

_ _ Genesis 31:22-55. Laban pursues Jacob — Their covenant at Gilead.

_ _ it was told Laban on the third day — No sooner did the news reach Laban than he set out in pursuit, and he being not encumbered, advanced rapidly; whereas Jacob, with a young family and numerous flocks, had to march slowly, so that he overtook the fugitives after seven days’ journey as they lay encamped on the brow of mount Gilead, an extensive range of hills forming the eastern boundary of Canaan. Being accompanied by a number of his people, he might have used violence had he not been divinely warned in a dream to give no interruption to his nephew’s journey. How striking and sudden a change! For several days he had been full of rage, and was now in eager anticipation that his vengeance would be fully wreaked, when lo! his hands are tied by invisible power (Psalms 76:10). He did not dare to touch Jacob, but there was a war of words.
