And it came to pass, when he saw the earring, and bracelets
upon his sister's hands
From whence he concluded that he was a rich and generous man she had met with, and might hope to receive a gift also upon giving him an invitation to his house; or however might judge he should be no loser by receiving him kindly and entertaining him generously; therefore it was that he made haste, and ran to him to bring him in; for that Laban was of a covetous disposition, appears from the whole story of him: and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, thus spake
the man unto me;
inquiring whose daughter she was, and whether there was any room in her father's house for him and those that were with him to lodge in: that he came unto the man;
made haste and ran till he came to him: and, behold, he stood by the camels at the wall;
he did not follow Rebekah, but kept still at the well, expecting somebody would come out of the house and give him an invitation into it, upon Rebekah's representation of him.
