Genesis 31

  1 H8085 And he heard [H8799]   H1697 the words H3837 of Laban's H1121 sons H559 , saying [H8800]   H3290 , Jacob H3947 hath taken away [H8804]   H1 all that was our father's H1 ; and of that which was our father's H6213 hath he gotten [H8804]   H3519 all this glory.
  2 H3290 And Jacob H7200 beheld [H8799]   H6440 the countenance H3837 of Laban H8543 , and, behold, it was not toward him as H8032 before.
  3 H3068 And the LORD H559 said [H8799]   H3290 unto Jacob H7725 , Return [H8798]   H776 unto the land H1 of thy fathers H4138 , and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee.
  4 H3290 And Jacob H7971 sent [H8799]   H7121 and called [H8799]   H7354 Rachel H3812 and Leah H7704 to the field H6629 unto his flock,
  5 H559 And said [H8799]   H7200 unto them, I see [H8802]   H1 your father's H6440 countenance H8543 , that it is not toward me as H8032 before H430 ; but the God H1 of my father H1961 hath been [H8804]   with me.
  6 H859 And ye H3045 know [H8804]   H3581 that with all my power H5647 I have served [H8804]   H1 your father.
  7 H1 And your father H2048 hath deceived [H8765]   H2498 me, and changed [H8689]   H4909 my wages H6235 ten H4489 times H430 ; but God H5414 suffered him [H8804]   H7489 not to hurt [H8687]   H5978 me.
  8 H559 If he said [H8799]   H5348 thus, The speckled H7939 shall be thy wages H6629 ; then all the cattle H3205 bare [H8804]   H5348 speckled H559 : and if he said [H8799]   H6124 thus, The ringstraked H7939 shall be thy hire H3205 ; then bare [H8804]   H6629 all the cattle H6124 ringstraked.
  9 H430 Thus God H5337 hath taken away [H8686]   H4735 the cattle H1 of your father H5414 , and given [H8799]   them to me.
  10 H6256 And it came to pass at the time H6629 that the cattle H3179 conceived [H8763]   H5375 , that I lifted up [H8799]   H5869 mine eyes H7200 , and saw [H8799]   H2472 in a dream H6260 , and, behold, the rams H5927 which leaped [H8802]   H6629 upon the cattle H6124 were ringstraked H5348 , speckled H1261 , and grisled.
  11 H4397 And the angel H430 of God H559 spake [H8799]   H2472 unto me in a dream H3290 , saying, Jacob H559 : And I said [H8799]  , Here am I.
  12 H559 And he said [H8799]   H5375 , Lift up [H8798]   H5869 now thine eyes H7200 , and see [H8798]   H6260 , all the rams H5927 which leap [H8802]   H6629 upon the cattle H6124 are ringstraked H5348 , speckled H1261 , and grisled H7200 : for I have seen [H8804]   H3837 all that Laban H6213 doeth [H8802]   unto thee.
  13 H410 I am the God H1008 of Bethel H4886 , where thou anointedst [H8804]   H4676 the pillar H5087 , and where thou vowedst [H8804]   H5088 a vow H6965 unto me: now arise [H8798]   H3318 , get thee out [H8798]   H776 from this land H7725 , and return [H8798]   H776 unto the land H4138 of thy kindred.
  14 H7354 And Rachel H3812 and Leah H6030 answered [H8799]   H559 and said [H8799]   H2506 unto him, Is there yet any portion H5159 or inheritance H1 for us in our father's H1004 house?
  15 H2803 Are we not counted [H8738]   H5237 of him strangers H4376 ? for he hath sold [H8804]   H398 us, and hath quite [H8800]   H398 devoured [H8799]   H3701 also our money.
  16 H6239 For all the riches H430 which God H5337 hath taken [H8689]   H1 from our father H1121 , that is ours, and our children's H430 : now then, whatsoever God H559 hath said [H8804]   H6213 unto thee, do [H8798]  .
  17 H3290 Then Jacob H6965 rose up [H8799]   H5375 , and set [H8799]   H1121 his sons H802 and his wives H1581 upon camels;
  18 H5090 And he carried away [H8799]   H4735 all his cattle H7399 , and all his goods H7408 which he had gotten [H8804]   H4735 , the cattle H7075 of his getting H7408 , which he had gotten [H8804]   H6307 in Padanaram H935 , for to go [H8800]   H3327 to Isaac H1 his father H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan.
  19 H3837 And Laban H1980 went [H8804]   H1494 to shear [H8800]   H6629 his sheep H7354 : and Rachel H1589 had stolen [H8799]   H8655 the images H1 that were her father's.
  20 H3290 And Jacob H1589 stole away [H8799]   H3820 unawares H3837 to Laban H761 the Syrian H5921 , in that H5046 he told [H8689]   H1097 him not H1272 that he fled [H8802]  .
  21 H1272 So he fled [H8799]   H6965 with all that he had; and he rose up [H8799]   H5674 , and passed over [H8799]   H5104 the river H7760 , and set [H8799]   H6440 his face H2022 toward the mount H1568 Gilead.
  22 H5046 And it was told [H8714]   H3837 Laban H7992 on the third H3117 day H3290 that Jacob H1272 was fled [H8804]  .
  23 H3947 And he took [H8799]   H251 his brethren H7291 with him, and pursued [H8799]   H310 after him H7651 seven H3117 days H1870 ' journey H1692 ; and they overtook [H8686]   H2022 him in the mount H1568 Gilead.
  24 H430 And God H935 came [H8799]   H3837 to Laban H761 the Syrian H2472 in a dream H3915 by night H559 , and said [H8799]   H8104 unto him, Take heed [H8734]   H1696 that thou speak [H8762]   H5973 not to H3290 Jacob H2896 either good H5704 or H7451 bad.
  25 H3837 Then Laban H5381 overtook [H8686]   H3290 Jacob H3290 . Now Jacob H8628 had pitched [H8804]   H168 his tent H2022 in the mount H3837 : and Laban H251 with his brethren H8628 pitched [H8804]   H2022 in the mount H1568 of Gilead.
  26 H3837 And Laban H559 said [H8799]   H3290 to Jacob H6213 , What hast thou done [H8804]   H1589 , that thou hast stolen away [H8799]   H3824 unawares H5090 to me, and carried away [H8762]   H1323 my daughters H7617 , as captives [H8803]   H2719 taken with the sword?
  27 H1272 Wherefore didst thou flee away [H8800]   H2244 secretly [H8738]   H1589 , and steal away [H8799]   H5046 from me; and didst not tell [H8689]   H7971 me, that I might have sent thee away [H8762]   H8057 with mirth H7892 , and with songs H8596 , with tabret H3658 , and with harp?
  28 H5203 And hast not suffered [H8804]   H5401 me to kiss [H8763]   H1121 my sons H1323 and my daughters H5528 ? thou hast now done foolishly [H8689]   H6213 in so doing [H8800]  .
  29 H3426 It is H410 in the power H3027 of my hand H6213 to do [H8800]   H7451 you hurt H430 : but the God H1 of your father H559 spake [H8804]   H570 unto me yesternight H559 , saying [H8800]   H8104 , Take thou heed [H8734]   H1696 that thou speak not [H8763]   H3290 to Jacob H2896 either good H7451 or bad.
  30 H1980 And now, though thou wouldest needs [H8800]   H1980 be gone [H8804]   H3700 , because thou sore [H8736]   H3700 longedst [H8738]   H1 after thy father's H1004 house H1589 , yet wherefore hast thou stolen [H8804]   H430 my gods?
  31 H3290 And Jacob H6030 answered [H8799]   H559 and said [H8799]   H3837 to Laban H3372 , Because I was afraid [H8804]   H559 : for I said [H8804]   H6435 , Peradventure H1497 thou wouldest take by force [H8799]   H1323 thy daughters from me.
  32 H834 With whomsoever H4672 thou findest [H8799]   H430 thy gods H2421 , let him not live [H8799]   H5048 : before H251 our brethren H5234 discern [H8685]   H3947 thou what is thine with me, and take [H8798]   H3290 it to thee. For Jacob H3045 knew [H8804]   H7354 not that Rachel H1589 had stolen [H8804]   them.
  33 H3837 And Laban H935 went [H8799]   H3290 into Jacob's H168 tent H3812 , and into Leah's H168 tent H8147 , and into the two H519 maidservants H168 ' tents H4672 ; but he found [H8804]   H3318 them not. Then went he out [H8799]   H3812 of Leah's H168 tent H935 , and entered [H8799]   H7354 into Rachel's H168 tent.
  34 H7354 Now Rachel H3947 had taken [H8804]   H8655 the images H7760 , and put [H8799]   H1581 them in the camel's H3733 furniture H3427 , and sat [H8799]   H3837 upon them. And Laban H4959 searched [H8762]   H168 all the tent H4672 , but found [H8804]   them not.
  35 H559 And she said [H8799]   H1 to her father H2734 , Let it not displease [H8799]   H5869   H113 my lord H3201 that I cannot [H8799]   H6965 rise up [H8800]   H6440 before thee H1870 ; for the custom H802 of women H2664 is upon me. And he searched [H8762]   H4672 , but found [H8804]   H8655 not the images.
  36 H3290 And Jacob H2734 was wroth [H8799]   H7378 , and chode [H8799]   H3837 with Laban H3290 : and Jacob H6030 answered [H8799]   H559 and said [H8799]   H3837 to Laban H6588 , What is my trespass H2403 ? what is my sin H1814 , that thou hast so hotly pursued [H8804]   H310 after me?
  37 H3588 Whereas H4959 thou hast searched [H8765]   H3627 all my stuff H4672 , what hast thou found [H8804]   H1004 of all thy household H3627 stuff H7760 ? set [H8798]   H3541 it here H251 before my brethren H251 and thy brethren H3198 , that they may judge [H8686]   H996 betwixt H8147 us both.
  38 H6242 This twenty H8141 years H7353 have I been with thee; thy ewes H5795 and thy she goats H7921 have not cast their young [H8765]   H352 , and the rams H6629 of thy flock H398 have I not eaten [H8804]  .
  39 H2966 That which was torn H935 of beasts I brought [H8689]   H2398 not unto thee; I bare the loss [H8762]   H3027 of it; of my hand H1245 didst thou require [H8762]   H1589 it, whether stolen [H8803]   H3117 by day H1589 , or stolen [H8803]   H3915 by night.
  40 H3117 Thus I was; in the day H2721 the drought H398 consumed [H8804]   H7140 me, and the frost H3915 by night H8142 ; and my sleep H5074 departed [H8799]   H5869 from mine eyes.
  41 H6242 Thus have I been twenty H8141 years H1004 in thy house H5647 ; I served thee [H8804]   H702 fourteen H6240   H8141 years H8147 for thy two H1323 daughters H8337 , and six H8141 years H6629 for thy cattle H2498 : and thou hast changed [H8686]   H4909 my wages H6235 ten H4489 times.
  42 H3884 Except H430 the God H1 of my father H430 , the God H85 of Abraham H6343 , and the fear H3327 of Isaac H7971 , had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away [H8765]   H7387 now empty H430 . God H7200 hath seen [H8804]   H6040 mine affliction H3018 and the labour H3709 of my hands H3198 , and rebuked [H8686]   H570 thee yesternight.
  43 H3837 And Laban H6030 answered [H8799]   H559 and said [H8799]   H3290 unto Jacob H1323 , These daughters H1323 are my daughters H1121 , and these children H1121 are my children H6629 , and these cattle H6629 are my cattle H7200 , and all that thou seest [H8802]   H6213 is mine: and what can I do [H8799]   H3117 this day H1323 unto these my daughters H176 , or H1121 unto their children H3205 which they have born [H8804]  ?
  44 H3212 Now therefore come thou [H8798]   H3772 , let us make [H8799]   H1285 a covenant H5707 , I and thou; and let it be for a witness between me and thee.
  45 H3290 And Jacob H3947 took [H8799]   H68 a stone H7311 , and set it up [H8686]   H4676 for a pillar.
  46 H3290 And Jacob H559 said [H8799]   H251 unto his brethren H3950 , Gather [H8798]   H68 stones H3947 ; and they took [H8799]   H68 stones H6213 , and made [H8799]   H1530 an heap H398 : and they did eat [H8799]   H1530 there upon the heap.
  47 H3837 And Laban H7121 called [H8799]   H3026 it Jegarsahadutha H3290 : but Jacob H7121 called [H8804]   H1567 it Galeed.
  48 H3837 And Laban H559 said [H8799]   H1530 , This heap H5707 is a witness H3117 between me and thee this day H8034 . Therefore was the name H7121 of it called [H8804]   H1567 Galeed;
  49 H4709 And Mizpah H834 ; for H559 he said [H8804]   H3068 , The LORD H6822 watch [H8799]   H5641 between me and thee, when we are absent [H8735]   H376 one H7453 from another.
  50 H6031 If thou shalt afflict [H8762]   H1323 my daughters H3947 , or if thou shalt take [H8799]   H802 other wives H5921 beside H1323 my daughters H376 , no man H7200 is with us; see [H8798]   H430 , God H5707 is witness betwixt me and thee.
  51 H3837 And Laban H559 said [H8799]   H3290 to Jacob H1530 , Behold this heap H4676 , and behold this pillar H3384 , which I have cast [H8804]   betwixt me and thee;
  52 H1530 This heap H5707 be witness H4676 , and this pillar H5713 be witness H5674 , that I will not pass over [H8799]   H1530 this heap H5674 to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over [H8799]   H1530 this heap H4676 and this pillar H7451 unto me, for harm.
  53 H430 The God H85 of Abraham H430 , and the God H5152 of Nahor H430 , the God H1 of their father H8199 , judge [H8799]   H3290 betwixt us. And Jacob H7650 sware [H8735]   H6343 by the fear H1 of his father H3327 Isaac.
  54 H3290 Then Jacob H2076 offered [H8799]   H2077 sacrifice H2022 upon the mount H7121 , and called [H8799]   H251 his brethren H398 to eat [H8800]   H3899 bread H398 : and they did eat [H8799]   H3899 bread H3885 , and tarried all night [H8799]   H2022 in the mount.
  55 H7925 And early H1242 in the morning H3837 Laban H7925 rose up [H8686]   H5401 , and kissed [H8762]   H1121 his sons H1323 and his daughters H1288 , and blessed [H8762]   H3837 them: and Laban H3212 departed [H8799]   H7725 , and returned [H8799]   H4725 unto his place.
