Last week in the first part of Chapter 31, YeHoVaH calls Jacob out from amongst his kindred in Haran to return to his kindred in Canaan. On the third day after Jacob had fled from Laban and taken his wives, children, all of his livestock and possessions, Laban was told that Jacob had fled.
Laban pursued Jacob for seven days. Laban shows his intent was to hurt Jacob and possibly kill him and take all his possessions that Laban still laid claim to. However, YeHoVaH came to Laban in a dream and warned him to take heed how he spoke to Jacob.
Proverbs 16:7 When a man's ways please the LORD, He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
