Speaking to Lot, his father-in-law and boss, Jacob says: These twenty years I have been with you, your ewes and your she-goats did not lose their young…For me these twenty years in your household I served you…and you switched my wages ten times over. Ultimately, Lot and Jacob make peace. How did Jacob do it? ShaDaL focuses on the additional phrase for me – First Jacob shows that he understands Lot’s experience and only then did he seek to be understood.
