Genesis 24:50

Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing proceeds from the LORD: we cannot speak unto you bad or good.

Laban is placed before his father, having perhaps the administration of affairs in Bathuel's old age; and he had first introduced the stranger. (Menochius)

John Chrysostom

AD 407
Then, since God was conducting everything in the wake of the patriarch’s prayers, the maiden’s father and brother said to him, “This thing has come from the Lord; we cannot deny you, for good or ill.” Your account shows the whole thing has happened by God’s arrangement. So don’t think we oppose the decisions of God; after all, it is beyond our powers to do it. Here, the maid is in your hands; “take her, and be on your way, and she will be wife to your master’s son, as the Lord has said.”

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
