Commentary: When he was younger, Jacob looked out for himself, using any opportunity presented to his advantage. Now he has gone to another land to find a wife, where he encounters Laban, who, like Jacob, looks out for himself and takes advantage of any situation. But the results that Laban credits to Jacob should have been credited to the Lord. Compare and contrasts the stories of Jacob and Laban.
