Genesis 31

  1 H8085 [H8799] And he heard H1697 the words H3837 of Laban's H1121 sons H559 [H8800] , saying H3290 , Jacob H3947 [H8804] hath taken away H1 all that was our father's H1 ; and of that which was our father's H6213 [H8804] hath he obtained H3519 all this glory.
  2 H3290 And Jacob H7200 [H8799] beheld H6440 the countenance H3837 of Laban H8543 , and, behold, it was not toward him as H8032 before.
  3 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] said H3290 to Jacob H7725 [H8798] , Return H776 to the land H1 of thy fathers H4138 , and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee.
  4 H3290 And Jacob H7971 [H8799] sent H7121 [H8799] and called H7354 Rachel H3812 and Leah H7704 into the field H6629 to his flock,
  5 H559 [H8799] And said H7200 [H8802] to them, I see 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 [H8804] hath been with me.
  6 H859 And ye H3045 [H8804] know H3581 that with all my power H5647 [H8804] I have served H1 your father.
  7 H1 And your father H2048 [H8765] hath deceived H2498 [H8689] me, and changed H4909 my wages H6235 ten H4489 times H430 ; but God H5414 [H8804] allowed him H7489 [H8687] not to hurt H5978 me.
  8 H559 [H8799] If he said H5348 thus, The speckled H7939 shall be thy wages H6629 ; then all the cattle H3205 [H8804] bore H5348 speckled H559 [H8799] : and if he said H6124 thus, The striped H7939 shall be thy hire H6629 ; then all the cattle H3205 [H8804] bore H6124 striped.
  9 H430 Thus God H5337 [H8686] hath taken away H4735 the cattle H1 of your father H5414 [H8799] , and given them to me.
  10 H6256 And it came to pass at the time H6629 that the cattle H3179 [H8763] conceived H5375 [H8799] , that I lifted up H5869 my eyes H7200 [H8799] , and saw H2472 in a dream H6260 , and, behold, the rams H5927 [H8802] which leaped H6629 upon the cattle H6124 were striped H5348 , speckled H1261 , and spotted.
  11 H4397 And the angel H430 of God H559 [H8799] spoke H2472 to me in a dream H3290 , saying, Jacob H559 [H8799] : And I said, Here am I.
  12 H559 [H8799] And he said H5375 [H8798] , Lift up H5869 now thy eyes H7200 [H8798] , and see H6260 , all the rams H5927 [H8802] which leap H6629 upon the cattle H6124 are striped H5348 , speckled H1261 , and spotted H7200 [H8804] : for I have seen H3837 all that Laban H6213 [H8802] doeth to thee.
  13 H410 I am the God H1008 of Bethel H4886 [H8804] , where thou didst anoint H4676 the pillar H5087 [H8804] , and where thou didst vow H5088 to me a vow H6965 [H8798] : now arise H3318 [H8798] , depart H776 from this land H7725 [H8798] , and return H776 to the land H4138 of thy kindred.
  14 H7354 And Rachel H3812 and Leah H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H2506 to him, Is there yet any portion H5159 or inheritance H1 for us in our father's H1004 house?
  15 H2803 [H8738] Are we not counted H5237 by him strangers H4376 [H8804] ? for he hath sold H398 [H8800] us, and hath quite H398 [H8799] consumed H3701 also our money.
  16 H6239 For all the riches H430 which God H5337 [H8689] hath taken H1 from our father H1121 , that is ours, and our children's H430 : now then, whatever God H559 [H8804] hath said H6213 [H8798] to thee, do.
  17 H3290 Then Jacob H6965 [H8799] arose H5375 [H8799] , and set H1121 his sons H802 and his wives H1581 upon camels;
  18 H5090 [H8799] And he carried away H4735 all his cattle H7399 , and all his goods H7408 [H8804] which he had gained H4735 , the cattle H7075 of his getting H7408 [H8804] , which he had gained H6307 in Padanaram H935 [H8800] , to go H3327 to Isaac H1 his father H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan.
  19 H3837 And Laban H1980 [H8804] went H1494 [H8800] to shear H6629 his sheep H7354 : and Rachel H1589 [H8799] had stolen H8655 the images H1 that were her father's.
  20 H3290 And Jacob H1589 [H8799] stole away H3820 unawares H3837 to Laban H761 the Syrian H5921 , in that H5046 [H8689] he told H1097 him not H1272 [H8802] that he was fleeing.
  21 H1272 [H8799] So he fled H6965 [H8799] with all that he had; and he arose H5674 [H8799] , and passed over H5104 the river H7760 [H8799] , and set H6440 his face H2022 toward the mount H1568 Gilead.
  22 H5046 [H8714] And it was told H3837 Laban H7992 on the third H3117 day H3290 that Jacob H1272 [H8804] had fled.
  23 H3947 [H8799] And he took H251 his brethren H7291 [H8799] with him, and pursued H310 after him H7651 seven H3117 days H1870 ' journey H1692 [H8686] ; and they overtook H2022 him in the mount H1568 Gilead.
  24 H430 And God H935 [H8799] came H3837 to Laban H761 the Syrian H2472 in a dream H3915 by night H559 [H8799] , and said H8104 [H8734] to him, Take heed H1696 [H8762] that thou speak H5973 not to H3290 Jacob H2896 either good H5704 or H7451 bad.
  25 H3837 Then Laban H5381 [H8686] overtook H3290 Jacob H3290 . Now Jacob H8628 [H8804] had pitched H168 his tent H2022 in the mount H3837 : and Laban H251 with his brethren H8628 [H8804] pitched H2022 in the mount H1568 of Gilead.
  26 H3837 And Laban H559 [H8799] said H3290 to Jacob H6213 [H8804] , What hast thou done H1589 [H8799] , that thou hast stolen away H3824 unawares H5090 [H8762] to me, and carried away H1323 my daughters H7617 [H8803] , as captives H2719 taken with the sword?
  27 H1272 [H8800] Why didst thou flee away H2244 [H8738] secretly H1589 [H8799] , and steal away H5046 [H8689] from me; and didst not tell H7971 [H8762] me, that I might have sent thee away H8057 with mirth H7892 , and with songs H8596 , with timbrel H3658 , and with harp?
  28 H5203 [H8804] And hast not permitted H5401 [H8763] me to kiss H1121 my sons H1323 and my daughters H5528 [H8689] ? thou hast now done foolishly H6213 [H8800] in so doing.
  29 H3426 It is H410 in the power H3027 of my hand H6213 [H8800] to do H7451 you harm H430 : but the God H1 of your father H559 [H8804] spoke H570 to me last night H559 [H8800] , saying H8104 [H8734] , Take thou heed H1696 [H8763] that thou speak not H3290 to Jacob H2896 either good H7451 or bad.
  30 H1980 [H8800] And now, though thou wouldest needs H1980 [H8804] be gone H3700 H3700 [H8736] , because thou didst earnestly long H1 after thy father's H1004 house H1589 [H8804] , yet why hast thou stolen H430 my gods?
  31 H3290 And Jacob H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H3837 to Laban H3372 [H8804] , Because I was afraid H559 [H8804] : for I said H6435 , It may be H1323 thou wouldest take thy daughters H1497 [H8799] from me by force.
  32 H834 With whomever H4672 [H8799] thou findest H430 thy gods H2421 [H8799] , let him not live H5048 : before H251 our brethren H5234 [H8685] discern H3947 [H8798] thou what is thine with me, and take H3290 it to thee. For Jacob H3045 [H8804] knew H7354 not that Rachel H1589 [H8804] had stolen them.
  33 H3837 And Laban H935 [H8799] went H3290 into Jacob's H168 tent H3812 , and into Leah's H168 tent H8147 , and into the two H519 maidservants H168 ' tents H4672 [H8804] ; but he found H3318 [H8799] them not. Then he went out H3812 of Leah's H168 tent H935 [H8799] , and entered H7354 into Rachel's H168 tent.
  34 H7354 Now Rachel H3947 [H8804] had taken H8655 the images H7760 [H8799] , and put H1581 them in the camel's H3733 saddle H3427 [H8799] , and sat H3837 upon them. And Laban H4959 [H8762] searched H168 all the tent H4672 [H8804] , but found them not.
  35 H559 [H8799] And she said H1 to her father H2734 H5869 [H8799] , Let it not displease H113 my lord H3201 [H8799] that I cannot H6965 [H8800] rise up H6440 before thee H1870 ; for the custom H802 of women H2664 [H8762] is upon me. And he searched H4672 [H8804] , but found H8655 not the images.
  36 H3290 And Jacob H2734 [H8799] was angry H7378 [H8799] , and contended H3837 with Laban H3290 : and Jacob H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H3837 to Laban H6588 , What is my trespass H2403 ? what is my sin H1814 [H8804] , that thou hast so hotly pursued H310 after me?
  37 H3588 Though H4959 [H8765] thou hast searched H3627 all my things H4672 [H8804] , what hast thou found H1004 of all thy household H3627 things H7760 [H8798] ? set H3541 it here H251 before my brethren H251 and thy brethren H3198 [H8686] , that they may judge H996 between H8147 us both.
  38 H6242 These twenty H8141 years H7353 have I been with thee; thy ewes H5795 and thy female goats H7921 [H8765] have not cast their young H352 , and the rams H6629 of thy flock H398 [H8804] have I not eaten.
  39 H2966 That which was torn H935 [H8689] by beasts I brought H2398 [H8762] not to thee; I bore the loss H3027 of it; of my hand H1245 [H8762] didst thou require H1589 [H8803] it, whether stolen H3117 by day H1589 [H8803] , or stolen H3915 by night.
  40 H3117 Thus I was; in the day H2721 the drought H398 [H8804] consumed H7140 me, and the frost H3915 by night H8142 ; and my sleep H5074 [H8799] departed H5869 from my eyes.
  41 H6242 Thus have I been twenty H8141 years H1004 in thy house H5647 [H8804] ; I served thee H702 H6240 fourteen H8141 years H8147 for thy two H1323 daughters H8337 , and six H8141 years H6629 for thy cattle H2498 [H8686] : and thou hast changed 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 [H8765] , had been with me, surely thou hadst now sent me away H7387 empty H430 . God H7200 [H8804] hath seen H6040 my affliction H3018 and the labour H3709 of my hands H3198 [H8686] , and rebuked H570 thee last night.
  43 H3837 And Laban H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H3290 to 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 [H8802] , and all that thou seest H6213 [H8799] is mine: and what can I do H3117 this day H1323 to these my daughters H176 , or H1121 to their children H3205 [H8804] which they have borne?
  44 H3212 [H8798] Now therefore come thou H3772 [H8799] , let us make H1285 a covenant H5707 , I and thou; and let it be for a witness between me and thee.
  45 H3290 And Jacob H3947 [H8799] took H68 a stone H7311 [H8686] , and set it up H4676 for a pillar.
  46 H3290 And Jacob H559 [H8799] said H251 to his brethren H3950 [H8798] , Gather H68 stones H3947 [H8799] ; and they took H68 stones H6213 [H8799] , and made H1530 an heap H398 [H8799] : and they ate H1530 there upon the heap.
  47 H3837 And Laban H7121 [H8799] called H3026 it Jegarsahadutha H3290 : but Jacob H7121 [H8804] called H1567 it Galeed.
  48 H3837 And Laban H559 [H8799] said H1530 , This heap H5707 is a witness H3117 between me and thee this day H8034 . Therefore was the name H7121 [H8804] of it called H1567 Galeed;
  49 H4709 And Mizpah H834 ; for H559 [H8804] he said H3068 , The LORD H6822 [H8799] watch H5641 [H8735] between me and thee, when we are absent H376 one H7453 from another.
  50 H6031 [H8762] If thou shalt afflict H1323 my daughters H3947 [H8799] , or if thou shalt take H802 other wives H5921 besides H1323 my daughters H376 , no man H7200 [H8798] is with us; see H430 , God H5707 is witness between me and thee.
  51 H3837 And Laban H559 [H8799] said H3290 to Jacob H1530 , Behold this heap H4676 , and behold this pillar H3384 [H8804] , which I have cast between me and thee;
  52 H1530 This heap H5707 be witness H4676 , and this pillar H5713 be witness H5674 [H8799] , that I will not pass over H1530 this heap H5674 [H8799] to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over H1530 this heap H4676 and this pillar H7451 to 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 [H8799] , judge H3290 between us. And Jacob H7650 [H8735] swore H6343 by the fear H1 of his father H3327 Isaac.
  54 H3290 Then Jacob H2076 [H8799] offered H2077 sacrifice H2022 upon the mount H7121 [H8799] , and called H251 his brethren H398 [H8800] to eat H3899 bread H398 [H8799] : and they ate H3899 bread H3885 [H8799] , and tarried all night H2022 in the mount.
  55 H7925 0 And early H1242 in the morning H3837 Laban H7925 [H8686] arose H5401 [H8762] , and kissed H1121 his sons H1323 and his daughters H1288 [H8762] , and blessed H3837 them: and Laban H3212 [H8799] departed H7725 [H8799] , and returned H4725 to his place.
