JACOB AND LABAN STORY

JACOB AND LABAN STORY STUDY ON JACOB AND LABAN STORY EVENTS WITH JACOB AND LABAN STORY MESSAGE
 

            Look who has joined us for another slice of Daily Bread.  Glad ya did ... Weíre well into the middle of the book of Genesis now and weíre finding out about the life of Jacob. He has been living with his Uncle Laban while in hiding from his brother Esau, who is enraged because Jacob overtook his inheritance and his blessing.  Heís been there for at least 14 years now and Labanís two daughters, Leah and Rachel are his wives.  He is ready to leave Haran to go back to his homeland, where God promised he would return.  Laban doesnít want him to leave because the Lord has blessed Laban since Jacob arrived.  Jacob has eleven sons and one daughter now and wants to have his own place and increase his family for God instead of working to increase Labanís wealth. 

            Jacob struck a deal with Laban about remaining with him for a while longer.  He agreed to stay on and raise Labanís livestock if he could separate the spotted and speckled animals and the brown sheep for his payment.   Any newborn livestock that were speckled or spotted and any sheep that were brown would become Jacobs.  With the Lordís help, Jacob found a way to multiply and strengthen the spotted and speckled livestock while Labanís animals remained few and feeble.  Laban was a little disturbed and his attitude toward Jacob turned sour.

JACOB AND LABAN STORY LESSON WITH JACOB AND LABAN STORY EXPLANATION AND JACOB AND LABAN STORY SUMMARY

            When Jacob had been in Haran for twenty years, the Lord talked to him saying, Go back to the land of your fathers and your family and Iíll be with you. 

            In secret Jacob said to Leah and Rachel, Your fatherís feelings toward me have changed, but God has been with me.  You know that I worked honestly for your father, and he changed my payment ten times these last six years, but God didnít allow him to hurt me.  If Laban said the speckled will be your payment, then all the newborn cattle were speckled and if he said the striped will be your payment then all the newborn were striped.  So God took away all your fatherís cattle and gave them to me.  And God told me to leave here and go back to the land of my fathers.

            Leah and Rachel wanted to leave with Jacob.  They said that they were strangers in their fatherís house being as he had sold them and spent all their inheritance too.  But before they left, Rachel had stolen some false idol figurines that were Labanís.

            Then without Laban knowing it, Jacob left with his children, his wives, his flocks, his herds and all that he owned and set out to go back to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.

            It was three days later when Laban learned that Jacob had left.  With his brothers, Laban followed after Jacob for seven days.  God came to Laban in a dream and told him to be careful not to speak to Jacob either good or bad.  When he caught up to Jacob in the mountain of Gilead, Laban asked, Why did you leave without telling me and take my daughters like hostages?  I could have made a going away celebration, but you didnít even let me kiss my daughters and my grandchildren good-bye.  Youíve acted foolishly and I have the right to punish you, but last night the God of your father told me not to speak good or bad to you.  I know you feel like you need to go and youíre homesick, but why did you steal my gods?

JACOB AND LABAN STORY INFORMATION WITH JACOB AND LABAN STORY MEANING AND JACOB AND LABAN STORY DISCUSSION

            Jacob didnít know that Rachel had taken the images.  He answered, I left secretly because I thought you wouldnít let me take Leah and Rachel with me.  As for your gods, whoever you find them with, let him die.  In front of our brothers, if you find that Iíve taken anything of yours, take it.

            Laban searched Jacobís tent, and Leahís, and the two maidservantís tents, but he didnít find them.  Then he went into Rachelís tent.  Rachel had hidden the idols in the camelís saddle and was sitting on it.  She said to her father, Please donít be offended that I donít get up, but Iím not well.  Laban didnít find the images. 

            Jacob grew angry and snapped at Laban, What did I do that you want to accuse me of so badly?  You have searched everything I have, and what have you found of yours?  Prove it here in front of our brothers so they can judge between us.  For twenty years now Iíve been with you and I havenít eaten anything I didnít earn.  Whatever was killed by beasts, I didnít tell you, but paid for it out of my own pocket whether it happened in front of your own eyes or in the dark of night.  In the daytime, the heat exhausted me and I didnít sleep in the cold of night.  For twenty years I served you, fourteen years for your two daughters and six years for the cattle and youíve changed my wages ten times.  If it wasnít for God and your fear of Isaac, you wouldíve sent me away with nothing.  But God knows my suffering and the labor of my hands, and He warned you last night.

            Laban said, These are my daughters and my grandchildren, and these are my cattle and all that you see is mine.  But what can I do for them?  Letís make an agreement between us.  They built a pillar of stones and Laban said, This heap of stones is a sign of our agreement.  The Lord watch between you and I when we are apart.  If you ever hurt my daughters, or if you take other wives beside them, may God judge between us.      

JACOB AND LABAN STORY OUTLINE AND JACOB AND LABAN STORY SUMMARY WITH JACOB AND LABAN STORY DISCUSSION

            This pillar of stones between us is a witness and a landmark that I will not pass over it to you and that you will not pass over it to me to do each other harm.  The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, judge between us.  And Jacob promised earnestly.  Then he offered a sacrifice and they all ate bread and stayed all night in the mountain of Gilead. 

            The next morning Laban woke up and kissed his daughters and his grandchildren, blessed them and went back to his home in Haran.

            So, what started out as a departure on bad terms turned out to be peaceful because of Godís encouragement.  You wonít want to miss our next story when Jacob continues his journey home and finds himself having a wrestling match with ... God!
