Genesis 29and came into the land Jacob at Haran becomes a sterling illustration, if not type, of the nation descended from him in its present long dispersion. Like Israel, he was: (1) Out of the place of blessing Genesis 26:3. (2) without an altar Hosea 3:4,5. (3) gained an evil name Genesis 31:1; Romans 2:17-24. (4) but was under the covenant care of Jehovah Genesis 28:13,14; Romans 11:1,25-30. (5) and was ultimately brought back Genesis 31:3; 35:1-4; Ezekiel 37:21-23. The personal lesson is obvious: while Jacob is not forsaken, he is permitted to reap the shame and sorrow of his self-chosen way.
