Bible: Gen 31:49-53

31:49 It was also called Mizpah 1  because he said, “May the Lord watch 2  between us 3  when we are out of sight of one another. 4  31:50 If you mistreat my daughters or if you take wives besides my daughters, although no one else is with us, realize 5  that God is witness to your actions.” 6 

31:51Here is this pile of stones and this pillar I have set up between me and you,” Laban said to Jacob. 7  31:52 This pile of stones and the pillar are reminders that I will not pass beyond this pile to come to harm you and that you will not pass beyond this pile and this pillar to come to harm me. 8  31:53 May the God of Abraham and the god of Nahor, 9  the gods of their father, judge between us.” Jacob took an oath by the God whom his father Isaac feared. 10
