Bible: Gen 31:43-47

31:43 Laban replied 1  to Jacob, “These women 2  are my daughters, these children are my grandchildren, 3  and these flocks are my flocks. All that you see belongs to me. But how can I harm these daughters of mine today 4  or the children to whom they have given birth? 31:44 So now, come, let’s make a formal agreement, 5  you and I, and it will be 6  proof that we have made peace.” 7 

31:45 So Jacob took a stone and set it up as a memorial pillar. 31:46 Then he 8  said to his relatives, “Gather stones.” So they brought stones and put them in a pile. 9  They ate there by the pile of stones. 31:47 Laban called it Jegar Sahadutha, 10  but Jacob called it Galeed. 11
