Right before he leaves he quotes (partially) from Genesis 31:11 "And the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, Jacob: and I said, Here am I." In verse 13 God replies "I am the God of Beth-el, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thow vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return to the land of thy kindred." Maybe he went back to his hometown/birth place?
Most of the time in the book he just takes scriptures out of context and fits them to the situation.. so I don't really think this is the case but I thought it was a funny correlation. I have wondered if the scriptures he uses give any clues to anything though.. but I doubt it.
PS: Does it ever mention Obliterations name? That would be funny if it was Jacob.
