31:1 And he heard [H8085] the words [H1697] of Laban's [H3837] sons [H1121] , saying [H559] , Jacob [H3290] hath taken away [H3947] all that [was] our father's [H1] ; and of [that] which [was] our father's [H1] hath he gotten [H6213] all this glory [H3519] .

31:2 And Jacob [H3290] beheld [H7200] the countenance [H6440] of Laban [H3837] , and, behold, it [was] not toward him as [H8543] before [H8032] .(as before: Heb. as yesterday and the day before)

31:3 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto Jacob [H3290] , Return [H7725] unto the land [H776] of thy fathers [H1] , and to thy kindred [H4138] ; and I will be with thee.

31:4 And Jacob [H3290] sent [H7971] and called [H7121] Rachel [H7354] and Leah [H3812] to the field [H7704] unto his flock [H6629] ,

31:5 And said [H559] unto them, I see [H7200] your father's [H1] countenance [H6440] , that it [is] not toward me as [H8543] before [H8032] ; but the God [H430] of my father [H1] hath been [H1961] with me.

31:6 And ye [H859] know [H3045] that with all my power [H3581] I have served [H5647] your father [H1] .

31:7 And your father [H1] hath deceived [H2048] me, and changed [H2498] my wages [H4909] ten [H6235] times [H4489] ; but God [H430] suffered him [H5414] not to hurt [H7489] me [H5978] .

31:8 If he said [H559] thus, The speckled [H5348] shall be thy wages [H7939] ; then all the cattle [H6629] bare [H3205] speckled [H5348] : and if he said [H559] thus, The ringstraked [H6124] shall be thy hire [H7939] ; then bare [H3205] all the cattle [H6629] ringstraked [H6124] .

31:9 Thus God [H430] hath taken away [H5337] the cattle [H4735] of your father [H1] , and given [H5414] [them] to me.

31:10 And it came to pass at the time [H6256] that the cattle [H6629] conceived [H3179] , that I lifted up [H5375] mine eyes [H5869] , and saw [H7200] in a dream [H2472] , and, behold, the rams [H6260] which leaped [H5927] upon the cattle [H6629] [were] ringstraked [H6124] , speckled [H5348] , and grisled [H1261] .(rams: or, he goats)

31:11 And the angel [H4397] of God [H430] spake [H559] unto me in a dream [H2472] , [saying], Jacob [H3290] : And I said [H559] , Here [am] I.

31:12 And he said [H559] , Lift up [H5375] now thine eyes [H5869] , and see [H7200] , all the rams [H6260] which leap [H5927] upon the cattle [H6629] [are] ringstraked [H6124] , speckled [H5348] , and grisled [H1261] : for I have seen [H7200] all that Laban [H3837] doeth [H6213] unto thee.

31:13 I [am] the God [H410] of Bethel [H1008] , where thou anointedst [H4886] the pillar [H4676] , [and] where thou vowedst [H5087] a vow [H5088] unto me: now arise [H6965] , get thee out [H3318] from this land [H776] , and return [H7725] unto the land [H776] of thy kindred [H4138] .

31:14 And Rachel [H7354] and Leah [H3812] answered [H6030] and said [H559] unto him, [Is there] yet any portion [H2506] or inheritance [H5159] for us in our father's [H1] house [H1004] ?

31:15 Are we not counted [H2803] of him strangers [H5237] ? for he hath sold [H4376] us, and hath quite [H398] devoured [H398] also our money [H3701] .

31:16 For all the riches [H6239] which God [H430] hath taken [H5337] from our father [H1] , that [is] ours, and our children's [H1121] : now then, whatsoever God [H430] hath said [H559] unto thee, do [H6213] .

31:17 Then Jacob [H3290] rose up [H6965] , and set [H5375] his sons [H1121] and his wives [H802] upon camels [H1581] ;

31:18 And he carried away [H5090] all his cattle [H4735] , and all his goods [H7399] which he had gotten [H7408] , the cattle [H4735] of his getting [H7075] , which he had gotten [H7408] in Padanaram [H6307] , for to go [H935] to Isaac [H3327] his father [H1] in the land [H776] of Canaan [H3667] .

31:19 And Laban [H3837] went [H1980] to shear [H1494] his sheep [H6629] : and Rachel [H7354] had stolen [H1589] the images [H8655] that [were] her father's [H1] .(images: Heb. teraphim)

31:20 And Jacob [H3290] stole away [H1589] unawares [H3820] to Laban [H3837] the Syrian [H761] , in that [H5921] he told [H5046] him not [H1097] that he fled [H1272] .(unawares: Heb. the heart of Laban)

31:21 So he fled [H1272] with all that he had; and he rose up [H6965] , and passed over [H5674] the river [H5104] , and set [H7760] his face [H6440] [toward] the mount [H2022] Gilead [H1568] .

31:22 And it was told [H5046] Laban [H3837] on the third [H7992] day [H3117] that Jacob [H3290] was fled [H1272] .

31:23 And he took [H3947] his brethren [H251] with him, and pursued [H7291] after him [H310] seven [H7651] days' [H3117] journey [H1870] ; and they overtook [H1692] him in the mount [H2022] Gilead [H1568] .

31:24 And God [H430] came [H935] to Laban [H3837] the Syrian [H761] in a dream [H2472] by night [H3915] , and said [H559] unto him, Take heed [H8104] that thou speak [H1696] not to [H5973] Jacob [H3290] either good [H2896] or [H5704] bad [H7451] .(either: Heb. from good to bad)

31:25 Then Laban [H3837] overtook [H5381] Jacob [H3290] . Now Jacob [H3290] had pitched [H8628] his tent [H168] in the mount [H2022] : and Laban [H3837] with his brethren [H251] pitched [H8628] in the mount [H2022] of Gilead [H1568] .

31:26 And Laban [H3837] said [H559] to Jacob [H3290] , What hast thou done [H6213] , that thou hast stolen away [H1589] unawares [H3824] to me, and carried away [H5090] my daughters [H1323] , as captives [H7617] [taken] with the sword [H2719] ?

31:27 Wherefore didst thou flee away [H1272] secretly [H2244] , and steal away [H1589] from me; and didst not tell [H5046] me, that I might have sent thee away [H7971] with mirth [H8057] , and with songs [H7892] , with tabret [H8596] , and with harp [H3658] ?(steal: Heb. hast stolen me)

31:28 And hast not suffered [H5203] me to kiss [H5401] my sons [H1121] and my daughters [H1323] ? thou hast now done foolishly [H5528] in [so] doing [H6213] .

31:29 It is [H3426] in the power [H410] of my hand [H3027] to do [H6213] you hurt [H7451] : but the God [H430] of your father [H1] spake [H559] unto me yesternight [H570] , saying [H559] , Take thou heed [H8104] that thou speak not [H1696] to Jacob [H3290] either good [H2896] or bad [H7451] .

31:30 And now, [though] thou wouldest needs [H1980] be gone [H1980] , because thou sore [H3700] longedst [H3700] after thy father's [H1] house [H1004] , [yet] wherefore hast thou stolen [H1589] my gods [H430] ?

31:31 And Jacob [H3290] answered [H6030] and said [H559] to Laban [H3837] , Because I was afraid [H3372] : for I said [H559] , Peradventure [H6435] thou wouldest take by force [H1497] thy daughters [H1323] from me.

31:32 With whomsoever [H834] thou findest [H4672] thy gods [H430] , let him not live [H2421] : before [H5048] our brethren [H251] discern [H5234] thou what [is] thine with me, and take [H3947] [it] to thee. For Jacob [H3290] knew [H3045] not that Rachel [H7354] had stolen [H1589] them.

31:33 And Laban [H3837] went [H935] into Jacob's [H3290] tent [H168] , and into Leah's [H3812] tent [H168] , and into the two [H8147] maidservants' [H519] tents [H168] ; but he found [H4672] [them] not. Then went he out [H3318] of Leah's [H3812] tent [H168] , and entered [H935] into Rachel's [H7354] tent [H168] .

31:34 Now Rachel [H7354] had taken [H3947] the images [H8655] , and put [H7760] them in the camel's [H1581] furniture [H3733] , and sat [H3427] upon them. And Laban [H3837] searched [H4959] all the tent [H168] , but found [H4672] [them] not.(searched: Heb. felt)

31:35 And she said [H559] to her father [H1] , Let it not displease [H2734] [H5869] my lord [H113] that I cannot [H3201] rise up [H6965] before thee [H6440] ; for the custom [H1870] of women [H802] [is] upon me. And he searched [H2664] , but found [H4672] not the images [H8655] .

31:36 And Jacob [H3290] was wroth [H2734] , and chode [H7378] with Laban [H3837] : and Jacob [H3290] answered [H6030] and said [H559] to Laban [H3837] , What [is] my trespass [H6588] ? what [is] my sin [H2403] , that thou hast so hotly pursued [H1814] after me [H310] ?

31:37 Whereas [H3588] thou hast searched [H4959] all my stuff [H3627] , what hast thou found [H4672] of all thy household [H1004] stuff [H3627] ? set [H7760] [it] here [H3541] before my brethren [H251] and thy brethren [H251] , that they may judge [H3198] betwixt [H996] us both [H8147] .(searched: Heb. felt)

31:38 This twenty [H6242] years [H8141] [have] I [been] with thee; thy ewes [H7353] and thy she goats [H5795] have not cast their young [H7921] , and the rams [H352] of thy flock [H6629] have I not eaten [H398] .

31:39 That which was torn [H2966] [of beasts] I brought [H935] not unto thee; I bare the loss [H2398] of it; of my hand [H3027] didst thou require [H1245] it, [whether] stolen [H1589] by day [H3117] , or stolen [H1589] by night [H3915] .

31:40 [Thus] I was; in the day [H3117] the drought [H2721] consumed [H398] me, and the frost [H7140] by night [H3915] ; and my sleep [H8142] departed [H5074] from mine eyes [H5869] .

31:41 Thus have I been twenty [H6242] years [H8141] in thy house [H1004] ; I served thee [H5647] fourteen [H702] [H6240] years [H8141] for thy two [H8147] daughters [H1323] , and six [H8337] years [H8141] for thy cattle [H6629] : and thou hast changed [H2498] my wages [H4909] ten [H6235] times [H4489] .

31:42 Except [H3884] the God [H430] of my father [H1] , the God [H430] of Abraham [H85] , and the fear [H6343] of Isaac [H3327] , had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away [H7971] now empty [H7387] . God [H430] hath seen [H7200] mine affliction [H6040] and the labour [H3018] of my hands [H3709] , and rebuked [H3198] [thee] yesternight [H570] .

31:43 And Laban [H3837] answered [H6030] and said [H559] unto Jacob [H3290] , [These] daughters [H1323] [are] my daughters [H1323] , and [these] children [H1121] [are] my children [H1121] , and [these] cattle [H6629] [are] my cattle [H6629] , and all that thou seest [H7200] [is] mine: and what can I do [H6213] this day [H3117] unto these my daughters [H1323] , or [H176] unto their children [H1121] which they have born [H3205] ?

31:44 Now therefore come thou [H3212] , let us make [H3772] a covenant [H1285] , I and thou; and let it be for a witness [H5707] between me and thee.

31:45 And Jacob [H3290] took [H3947] a stone [H68] , and set it up [H7311] [for] a pillar [H4676] .

31:46 And Jacob [H3290] said [H559] unto his brethren [H251] , Gather [H3950] stones [H68] ; and they took [H3947] stones [H68] , and made [H6213] an heap [H1530] : and they did eat [H398] there upon the heap [H1530] .

31:47 And Laban [H3837] called [H7121] it Jegarsahadutha [H3026] : but Jacob [H3290] called [H7121] it Galeed [H1567] .(Jegarsahadutha: that is, The heap of witness, Chaldee)(Galeed: that is, The heap of witness, Heb.)

31:48 And Laban [H3837] said [H559] , This heap [H1530] [is] a witness [H5707] between me and thee this day [H3117] . Therefore was the name [H8034] of it called [H7121] Galeed [H1567] ;

31:49 And Mizpah [H4709] ; for [H834] he said [H559] , The LORD [H3068] watch [H6822] between me and thee, when we are absent [H5641] one [H376] from another [H7453] .(Mizpah: that is, A beacon, or, watchtower)

31:50 If thou shalt afflict [H6031] my daughters [H1323] , or if thou shalt take [H3947] [other] wives [H802] beside [H5921] my daughters [H1323] , no man [H376] [is] with us; see [H7200] , God [H430] [is] witness [H5707] betwixt me and thee.

31:51 And Laban [H3837] said [H559] to Jacob [H3290] , Behold this heap [H1530] , and behold [this] pillar [H4676] , which I have cast [H3384] betwixt me and thee;

31:52 This heap [H1530] [be] witness [H5707] , and [this] pillar [H4676] [be] witness [H5713] , that I will not pass over [H5674] this heap [H1530] to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over [H5674] this heap [H1530] and this pillar [H4676] unto me, for harm [H7451] .

31:53 The God [H430] of Abraham [H85] , and the God [H430] of Nahor [H5152] , the God [H430] of their father [H1] , judge [H8199] betwixt us. And Jacob [H3290] sware [H7650] by the fear [H6343] of his father [H1] Isaac [H3327] .

31:54 Then Jacob [H3290] offered [H2076] sacrifice [H2077] upon the mount [H2022] , and called [H7121] his brethren [H251] to eat [H398] bread [H3899] : and they did eat [H398] bread [H3899] , and tarried all night [H3885] in the mount [H2022] .(offered: or, killed beasts)

31:55 And early [H7925] in the morning [H1242] Laban [H3837] rose up [H7925] , and kissed [H5401] his sons [H1121] and his daughters [H1323] , and blessed [H1288] them: and Laban [H3837] departed [H3212] , and returned [H7725] unto his place [H4725] .
