Scofield Reference Notes

[1] and came into the land

Jacob at Haran becomes a sterling illustration, if not type, of the nation descended from him in its present long dispersion. Like Israel, he was:

(1) Out of the place of blessing Gen 26:3.

(2) without an altar Hos 3:4,5.

(3) gained an evil name Gen 31:1 Rom 2:17-24.

(4) but was under the covenant care of Jehovah Gen 28:13,14 Rom 11:1,25-30.

(5) and was ultimately brought back Gen 31:3 35:1-4 Ezek 37:21-23.

The personal lesson is obvious: while Jacob is not forsaken, he is permitted to reap the shame and sorrow of his self-chosen way.Genesis 29:1 Parallel Commentaries

I wonder, however, that you withdrew your countenance, till of late bestowed on me, from this my recent engagement in the pastoral office; wherein, under colour of episcopacy, I have been brought
