Exceedingly blessed and still chasing idols! “The man Jacob became very, very rich: he owned large flocks, female and male servants, camels, and donkeys.
Genesis 30:43 CEB
Then Rachel and Leah replied [to Jacob], “Do we still have any share in the inheritance of our father’s estate? Does he not regard us as foreigners?

Genesis 31:14-16 NIV
So Jacob got up, put his sons and wives on the camels, and set out with all of his livestock and all of his possessions that he had acquired in Paddan-aram in order to return to his father Isaac in the land of Canaan.
Now, while Laban was out shearing his sheep, Rachel stole the household’s divine images [idols] that belonged to her father.”
