Haftarah: Hosea 12:13-14:10, page 188

  1. (31:17-21) Without telling Laban, Jacob gathers his herds and flocks and leaves. Rachel takes Laban’s teraphim (household idols).
  2. (31:22-32:3) Laban pursues and overtakes Jacob. In an impassioned speech, Jacob rebukes Laban for his devious ways. Laban and Jacob make a covenant of peace.
