{Genesis 28:5} And Isaac 3327 sent away 7971 z8799 x853 Jacob: 3290 and he went y3212 z8799 x1980 to Padanaram 6307 unto x413 Laban, 3837 son 1121 of Bethuel 1328 the Syrian, 761 the brother 251 of Rebekah, 7259 Jacob's 3290 and Esau's 6215 mother. 517
sent away Jacob:
Whoever observes Jacob's life, after he had surreptitiously obtained his father's blessing, will perceive that he enjoyed very little worldly felicity. His brother purposed to murder him, to avoid which he was forced to flee from his father's house; his uncle Laban deceived him, as he had deceived his father, and treated him with great rigour; after a servitude of 21 years, he was obliged to leave him in a clandestine manner, not without danger of being brought back, or murdered by his enraged brother; no sooner were these fears over, than he experienced the baseness of his son Reuben, in defiling his bed; he had next to bewail the treachery and cruelty of Simeon and Levi toward the Shechemites; then he had to feel the loss of his beloved wife; he was next imposed upon by his own sons, and had to lament the supposed untimely end of Joseph; and to complete all, he was forced by famine to go into Egypt, and there died, in a strange land. So just, wonderful, and instructive are all the ways of Providence!
"Arise,ª° go²°¹ to Padanaram,ª to the houseª of Bethuelª thy mother'sª father;ª and takeª° thee a wifeª from thence¹¹ of the daughtersª¹ of Labanª thy mother'sª brother.ª" {Gen 28:2}
