And the man increased exceedingly
Jacob grew very rich: and had much cattle;
the greater part of Laban's flocks brought forth speckled, spotted, and brown cattle, which, according to agreement, were Jacob's: and maidservants, and menservants;
which he got to take care of his household affairs, and to assist him in keeping his flocks: and camels, and asses;
for his flocks increasing so very much, he sold many of his sheep at a good price, as Jarchi observes, and with it bought camels and asses; and these were very fit for his use, when he should be obliged or think fit to remove into his own country, and which he was meditating, and had a direction from the Lord for, as in the following chapter.
