NET © Notes

tn Heb “and he heard the words of the sons of Laban, saying.”

sn The Hebrew word translated “gotten rich” (כָּבוֹד, cavod) has the basic idea of “weight.” If one is heavy with possessions, then that one is wealthy (13:2). Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph all became wealthy when they left the promised land. Jacob’s wealth foreshadows what will happen to Israel when they leave the land of Egypt (Exod 12:35-38).

tn Heb “and from that which belonged to our father he has gained all this wealth.”
