Bible Commentary for Genesis 31:22

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 31:22


31:23 He took his brethren - That is, his relations, and pursues Jacob to bring him back into bondage, or, to strip him of what he had.

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.
