Why did Yakov see fit to mention the fact that 'the G-d of his father was with him'?


Rashbam and Seforno: He meant to say that, in spite of Lavan's accusations that he had stolen his sheep, everything that he owned was what Hashem had given him, and that he had stolen nothing from Lavan.


Oznayim la'Torah: It was clear that, since he had done Lavan no harm during the past six years, Lavan really hated him all along and that until now, it was only by the grace of the G-d of his father that he had concealed his hatred. But now that Hashem wanted him to return to his father's house, He had removed the mask of love from Lavan's face to reveal his true colors, in order to induce him to leave.
