“And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dreame by night, and saide vnto him, Take heed that thou speake not to Iacob either good or bad.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
31:24 Speak not, either good or bad - That is, say nothing against his going on with his journey, for the thing proceedeth from the Lord. The same Hebraism we have, #Gen 24:50|. The safety of good men is very much owing to the hold God has of the consciences of bad men, and the access he has to them.
