Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 31:6

_ _ ye know that ... I have served your father — Having stated his strong grounds of dissatisfaction with their father’s conduct and the ill requital he had got for all his faithful services, he informed them of the blessing of God that had made him rich notwithstanding Laban’s design to ruin him; and finally, of the command from God he had received to return to his own country, that they might not accuse him of caprice, or disaffection to their family; but be convinced, that in resolving to depart, he acted from a principle of religious obedience.
