Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What law relevant to travelers do we learn from this verse?
וַיֵּ֙לֶךְ֙ לְמַסָּעָ֔יו מִנֶּ֖גֶב וְעַד־בֵּֽית־אֵ֑ל עַד־הַמָּק֗וֹם אֲשֶׁר־הָ֨יָה שָׁ֤ם אהלה [אָֽהֳלוֹ֙] בַּתְּחִלָּ֔ה בֵּ֥ין בֵּֽית־אֵ֖ל וּבֵ֥ין הָעָֽי׃
And he proceeded by stages from the Negev as far as Beit-el, to the place where his tent had been formerly, between Beit-el and Ai.
From here we learn, that a traveler who previously visited a place should stay with the same people who hosted him the first time.
Unless, of course, they stole from him or threw him out.
(Bereshit Rabbah; Yafeh Tohar)
