Why did Lavan connect Yakov's stealing his gods with his desire to go home?


Seforno: He meant that Yakov' decision to go home was no reason to steal his gods.


Oznayim la'Torah: He would not have minded so much had he stolen his gods whilst he was still living there - on the contrary, he would have been so pleased with him for adopting his style of worship that he might have even given them to him as a gift. But now that he swtole them after deciding to leave for his father's house, where he would surely continue to believe in G-d, on what grounds did he steal them?


Why did Lavan double the expressions "Haloch Halachta Ki Nichsof Nichsafta"?


Tosfos ha'Shalem (1, citing R. Efrayim): You went during the day and at night. 1 You are covered with silver on the inside and outside, and you are eager to bring it to your father's house.


Pesachim 2a learns from "ha'Boker Ohr veha'Anashim Shulchu" (Bereishis 44:3) that one should travel only during the day.
