CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Jacob has a vision of the heavenly host. This passage, recording Laban's farewell and departure, closes the connection of Jacob with Haran and all its toils of servitude, and is hence, annexed to the previous chapter in the English version. In the distribution of the original text, it is regarded as the counterpart of the two following verses, in which Jacob's onward progress is mentioned, and so placed with them at the beginning of a new chapter.

Mahanaim has been identified with Mahneh, about eight miles from the cairn of Laban and Jacob.
