And it was told Laban on the third day that Jacob was fled.…
1. It is no harm for the wicked to overtake the righteous, while they are curbed by God.
2. Providence may bring enemies near to His saints, and yet keep mischief far off from them.
3. God can cause the righteous to pitch near their oppressors, and yet secure them (ver. 25).
(G. Hughes, B. D. .)
