(43) The man increased exceedingly.--Heb., broke forth, as in Genesis 30:30. Wool, as the chief material for clothing, is a very valuable commodity in the East, and by the sale of it Jacob would obtain means for the purchase of male and female servants and camels. The latter were especially valuable for purposes of commerce, in which Jacob evidently was actively engaged, and whence probably came his chief gains.

Verse 43. - And - as the apparent result of the triple stratagem, though vide supra, ver. 38, and cf. Genesis 31:12 - the man increased exceedingly, - literally, broke forth greatly (vide ver. 80) - and had much cattle, and maid-servants, and men-servants, and camels, and asses - like Abraham (Genesis 13:2) and Isaac (Genesis 26:13, 14). Thus far the historian simply narrates the fact of the patriarch's priority, and the steps which to it, "without expressing approbation of his conduct or describing his increasing wealth as a blessing from God. The verdict is contained in what follows (Keil).
