Genesis 30:25 - 34 describes a dialogue between Ya'akov and Lavan, discussing the terms of Ya'akov's continued employment. One part of this, Verses 27 - 28, comprises a short, three-sentence response by Lavan:
כז. וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו לָבָן אִם נָא מָצָאתִי חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ נִחַשְׁתִּי וַיְבָרֲכֵנִי יְהֹוָה בִּגְלָלֶךָ
כח. וַיֹּאמַר נָקְבָה שְׂכָרְךָ עָלַי וְאֶתֵּנָה
27 And Laban said to him, "If only I have now found favor in your eyes! I have divined, and the Lord has blessed me for your sake."
28 Then he said, "Specify your wages for me, and I will give [them]."
Oddly, the break between the fourth and fifth readings of the parasha is between these two verses. There's no paragraph break here, and there's nothing particularly sad in the surrounding text. Two nearby places that this break could possibly have been without breaking up an individual's speeach are:
Between Verses 24 and 25, dividing between the sequence of Ya'akov's children being born (and ending with an explicit prayer to God) and Ya'akov's negotiation with Lavan.
Between Verses 30:43 and 31:1, dividing between Ya'akov becoming wealthy and the sequence leading up to his departure from Lavan's area.
Why isn't the split in one of those places, rather than where it breaks up a two-verse speech and a ten-verse dialogue?
