Genesis 31

This is long but straightforward for the most part from a mechanical translation's point of view. Verse 34 has an interesting play on words. בכר הגמל was mechanically given as first born weaned, assuming stems בכר and גמל. For גמל camel and wean are homonyms. The first stem is not בכר but כר with the preposition ב. Still the sound could be punned.

Verse 39, חטא is used to compensate for the loss of something torn. A unique use of a common word, normally sin sin-offering etc.

Verse 42 has a memorable unique view of the פחד Dread of Isaac. I have treated it as a name of God.

Verse 46, JB has cairn - nice neutral word for a pile of rubble. The word is often used for a figurine, perhaps a concession to the cultural practice of Laban, having just lost his household gods. Gilead is figurine or cairn of witness. Laban's name for the cairn in verse 47 is Aramaic, but in verse 48 he speaks in Hebrew and the name and its interpretation are very clear הַגַּ֨ל הַזֶּ֥ה עֵ֛ד --> גַּלְעֵֽד.

verse 50 - a remarkable recognition of both parties to the underlying mystery of separation and covenant in what cannot be seen. If only such a covenant could arise between the warring religions, sects, parties, clans, gangs, etc of the same geographic area today, not to mention everywhere else in the world.

Genesis 31 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיִּשְׁמַ֗ע אֶת־דִּבְרֵ֤י בְנֵֽי־לָבָן֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר לָקַ֣ח יַעֲקֹ֔ב אֵ֖ת כָּל־אֲשֶׁ֣ר לְאָבִ֑ינוּ
וּמֵאֲשֶׁ֣ר לְאָבִ֔ינוּ עָשָׂ֕ה אֵ֥ת כָּל־הַכָּבֹ֖ד הַזֶּֽה
1 And he heard the words of the sons of Laban, saying, Jacob has taken all that was our father's,
and from what was our father's, he has dealt himself all this glory.
3e 4C 24
17
וַיַּ֥רְא יַעֲקֹ֖ב אֶת־פְּנֵ֣י לָבָ֑ן
וְהִנֵּ֥ה אֵינֶ֛נּוּ עִמּ֖וֹ כִּתְמ֥וֹל שִׁלְשֽׁוֹם
2 And Jacob saw the face of Laban,
and behold he was not Laban as in days gone by.
3d 4B 10
12
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר יְהוָה֙ אֶֽל־יַעֲקֹ֔ב שׁ֛וּב אֶל־אֶ֥רֶץ אֲבוֹתֶ֖יךָ וּלְמוֹלַדְתֶּ֑ךָ
וְאֶֽהְיֶ֖ה עִמָּֽךְ
3 And Yahweh said to Jacob, Return to the land of your ancestors, and to your kindred,
and I will be with you.
3d 4C 22
5
וַיִּשְׁלַ֣ח יַעֲקֹ֔ב וַיִּקְרָ֖א לְרָחֵ֣ל וּלְלֵאָ֑ה
הַשָּׂדֶ֖ה אֶל־צֹאנֽוֹ
4 And Jacob sent and he called for Rachel and for Leah,
the field of his flock.
3e 4B 15
6
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר לָהֶ֗ן רֹאֶ֤ה אָנֹכִי֙ אֶת־פְּנֵ֣י אֲבִיכֶ֔ן כִּֽי־אֵינֶ֥נּוּ אֵלַ֖י כִּתְמֹ֣ל שִׁלְשֹׁ֑ם
וֵֽאלֹהֵ֣י אָבִ֔י הָיָ֖ה עִמָּדִֽי
5 And he said to them, I see the face of your father, for it is not to me as it was the day before yesterday,
and the God of my father has been with me.
3e 4C 25
10
וְאַתֵּ֖נָה יְדַעְתֶּ֑ן
כִּ֚י בְּכָל־כֹּחִ֔י עָבַ֖דְתִּי אֶת־אֲבִיכֶֽן
6 And yourselves you know,
that with all my power I have served your father.
3e 4C 7
12
וַאֲבִיכֶן֙ הֵ֣תֶל בִּ֔י וְהֶחֱלִ֥ף אֶת־מַשְׂכֻּרְתִּ֖י עֲשֶׂ֣רֶת מֹנִ֑ים
וְלֹֽא־נְתָנ֣וֹ אֱלֹהִ֔ים לְהָרַ֖ע עִמָּדִֽי
7 And your father is jesting with me, and has adapted my wages ten times,
but God did not permit him to injure me.
3e 4B 20
14
אִם־כֹּ֣ה יֹאמַ֗ר נְקֻדִּים֙ יִהְיֶ֣ה שְׂכָרֶ֔ךָ וְיָלְד֥וּ כָל־הַצֹּ֖אן נְקֻדִּ֑ים
וְאִם־כֹּ֣ה יֹאמַ֗ר עֲקֻדִּים֙ יִהְיֶ֣ה שְׂכָרֶ֔ךָ וְיָלְד֥וּ כָל־הַצֹּ֖אן עֲקֻדִּֽים
8 If he says thus, Speckled will be your wage, then all the flock give birth to speckled.
But if he says thus, Streaked will be your wage, then all the flock give birth to streaked.
3e 4B 22
23
וַיַּצֵּ֧ל אֱלֹהִ֛ים אֶת־מִקְנֵ֥ה אֲבִיכֶ֖ם וַיִּתֶּן־לִֽי 9 So God has removed the livestock of your father, and given it to me. 3c 3g 16
וַיְהִ֗י בְּעֵת֙ יַחֵ֣ם הַצֹּ֔אן וָאֶשָּׂ֥א עֵינַ֛י וָאֵ֖רֶא בַּחֲל֑וֹם
וְהִנֵּ֤ה הָֽעַתֻּדִים֙ הָעֹלִ֣ים עַל־הַצֹּ֔אן עֲקֻדִּ֥ים נְקֻדִּ֖ים וּבְרֻדִּֽים
10 And it happened at the time of the heat of the flock, that I lifted up my eyes and I saw in a dream,
and behold, the bucks who went up on the sheep were streaked, speckled, and dappled.
3d 4C 19
22
וַיֹּ֨אמֶר אֵלַ֜י מַלְאַ֧ךְ הָאֱלֹהִ֛ים בַּחֲל֖וֹם יַֽעֲקֹ֑ב
וָאֹמַ֖ר הִנֵּֽנִי
11 And the messenger of God said to me in the dream, Jacob.
And I said, Here am I.
3c 4A 17
6
וַיֹּ֗אמֶר שָׂא־נָ֨א עֵינֶ֤יךָ וּרְאֵה֙ כָּל־הָֽעַתֻּדִים֙ הָעֹלִ֣ים עַל־הַצֹּ֔אן עֲקֻדִּ֥ים נְקֻדִּ֖ים וּבְרֻדִּ֑ים
כִּ֣י רָאִ֔יתִי אֵ֛ת כָּל־אֲשֶׁ֥ר לָבָ֖ן עֹ֥שֶׂה לָּֽךְ
12 And he said, Lift up, please, your eyes, and see. All the bucks who went up on the sheep were streaked, speckled, and dappled,
for I have seen all that Laban has done to you.
3d 4C 30
13
אָנֹכִ֤י הָאֵל֙ בֵּֽית־אֵ֔ל אֲשֶׁ֨ר מָשַׁ֤חְתָּ שָּׁם֙ מַצֵּבָ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֨ר נָדַ֥רְתָּ לִּ֛י שָׁ֖ם נֶ֑דֶר
עַתָּ֗ה ק֥וּם צֵא֙ מִן־הָאָ֣רֶץ הַזֹּ֔את וְשׁ֖וּב אֶל־אֶ֥רֶץ מוֹלַדְתֶּֽךָ
13 I am the One, Bethel, where you anointed a monument, where you vowed to me a vow.
Now arise, go forth from this land and return to the land that gave you birth.
3d 4C 25
19
וַתַּ֤עַן רָחֵל֙ וְלֵאָ֔ה וַתֹּאמַ֖רְנָה ל֑וֹ
הַע֥וֹד לָ֛נוּ חֵ֥לֶק וְנַחֲלָ֖ה בְּבֵ֥ית אָבִֽינוּ
14 And Rachel and Leah answered, and they said to him,
Is there still our share or inheritance in the house of our father?
3d 4C 13
15
הֲל֧וֹא נָכְרִיּ֛וֹת נֶחְשַׁ֥בְנוּ ל֖וֹ כִּ֣י מְכָרָ֑נוּ
וַיֹּ֥אכַל גַּם־אָכ֖וֹל אֶת־כַּסְפֵּֽנוּ
15 Will it not be that we are reckoned foreign to him?
For he has sold us, and devoured, even to eat up our silver.
3c 4B 14
10
כִּ֣י כָל־הָעֹ֗שֶׁר אֲשֶׁ֨ר הִצִּ֤יל אֱלֹהִים֙ מֵֽאָבִ֔ינוּ לָ֥נוּ ה֖וּא וּלְבָנֵ֑ינוּ
וְעַתָּ֗ה כֹּל֩ אֲשֶׁ֨ר אָמַ֧ר אֱלֹהִ֛ים אֵלֶ֖יךָ עֲשֵֽׂה
16 B For all the riches that God has delivered from our father, ours it is, and our children's.
So now all that God has said to you, do.
3c 4C 23
16
וַיָּ֖קָם יַעֲקֹ֑ב
וַיִּשָּׂ֛א אֶת־בָּנָ֥יו וְאֶת־נָשָׁ֖יו עַל־הַגְּמַלִּֽים
17 And Jacob arose,
and lifted up his children and his women on the camels.
3d 4A 6
14
וַיִּנְהַ֣ג אֶת־כָּל־מִקְנֵ֗הוּ וְאֶת־כָּל־רְכֻשׁוֹ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר רָכָ֔שׁ מִקְנֵה֙ קִנְיָנ֔וֹ אֲשֶׁ֥ר רָכַ֖שׁ בְּפַדַּ֣ן אֲרָ֑ם
לָב֛וֹא אֶל־יִצְחָ֥ק אָבִ֖יו אַ֥רְצָה כְּנָֽעַן
18 And he drove all his livestock, and all belonging to them that he had obtained, the livestock of his acquisitions that he had obtained in Padan Aram,
to go to Yitschaq his father toward the land of Canaan.
3d 4B 32
12
וְלָבָ֣ן הָלַ֔ךְ לִגְזֹ֖ז אֶת־צֹאנ֑וֹ
וַתִּגְנֹ֣ב רָחֵ֔ל אֶת־הַתְּרָפִ֖ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר לְאָבִֽיהָ
19 And Laban went to shear his sheep.
And Rachel had stolen the household gods that were her father's.
3e 4B 10
15
וַיִּגְנֹ֣ב יַעֲקֹ֔ב אֶת־לֵ֥ב לָבָ֖ן הָאֲרַמִּ֑י
עַל־בְּלִי֙ הִגִּ֣יד ל֔וֹ כִּ֥י בֹרֵ֖חַ הֽוּא
20 And Jacob stole away the heart of Laban the Aramaean.
He had told him nothing, for he was running away.
3e 4B 14
11
וַיִּבְרַ֥ח הוּא֙ וְכָל־אֲשֶׁר־ל֔וֹ וַיָּ֖קָם וַיַּעֲבֹ֣ר אֶת־הַנָּהָ֑ר
וַיָּ֥שֶׂם אֶת־פָּנָ֖יו הַ֥ר הַגִּלְעָֽד
21 And he ran away, he and all that were his, and he arose and crossed over the river,
and set his face to mount Gilead.
3e 4B 20
10
וַיֻּגַּ֥ד לְלָבָ֖ן בַּיּ֣וֹם הַשְּׁלִישִׁ֑י
כִּ֥י בָרַ֖ח יַעֲקֹֽב
22 And it was told to Laban on the third day,
that Jacob had run away.
3e 4B 11
6
וַיִּקַּ֤ח אֶת־אֶחָיו֙ עִמּ֔וֹ וַיִּרְדֹּ֣ף אַחֲרָ֔יו דֶּ֖רֶךְ שִׁבְעַ֣ת יָמִ֑ים
וַיַּדְבֵּ֥ק אֹת֖וֹ בְּהַ֥ר הַגִּלְעָֽד
23 And he took his kin with him, and pursued behind him, a journey of seven days,
and he followed, closing in on him on mount Gilead.
3e 4C 20
10
וַיָּבֹ֧א אֱלֹהִ֛ים אֶל־לָבָ֥ן הָאֲרַמִּ֖י בַּחֲלֹ֣ם הַלָּ֑יְלָה
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר ל֗וֹ הִשָּׁ֧מֶר לְךָ֛ פֶּן־תְּדַבֵּ֥ר עִֽם־יַעֲקֹ֖ב מִטּ֥וֹב עַד־רָֽע
24 But God came to Laban the Aramaean in a dream by night,
and said to him, Keep watch for yourself lest you speak with Jacob from good to evil.
3c 4B 19
21
וַיַּשֵּׂ֥ג לָבָ֖ן אֶֽת־יַעֲקֹ֑ב
וְיַעֲקֹ֗ב תָּקַ֤ע אֶֽת־אָהֳלוֹ֙ בָּהָ֔ר וְלָבָ֛ן תָּקַ֥ע אֶת־אֶחָ֖יו בְּהַ֥ר הַגִּלְעָֽד
25 And Laban overtook Jacob.
And Jacob had stuck his tent on the hill. And Laban stuck, with his brothers, on mount Gilead.
3d 4C 9
25
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר לָבָן֙ לְיַעֲקֹ֔ב מֶ֣ה עָשִׂ֔יתָ וַתִּגְנֹ֖ב אֶת־לְבָבִ֑י
וַתְּנַהֵג֙ אֶת־בְּנֹתַ֔י כִּשְׁבֻי֖וֹת חָֽרֶב
26 And Laban said to Jacob, What have you done that you have stolen away my heart,
and driven my daughters as captives of the sword?
3e 4C 20
12
לָ֤מָּה נַחְבֵּ֙אתָ֙ לִבְרֹ֔חַ וַתִּגְנֹ֖ב אֹתִ֑י
וְלֹא־הִגַּ֣דְתָּ לִּ֔י וָֽאֲשַׁלֵּחֲךָ֛ בְּשִׂמְחָ֥ה וּבְשִׁרִ֖ים בְּתֹ֥ף וּבְכִנּֽוֹר
27 C For why camouflaged, did you run away, and steal away from me,
and not tell me, that I could send you with gladness and with songs, with drum and with harp,
3d 4C 13
22
וְלֹ֣א נְטַשְׁתַּ֔נִי לְנַשֵּׁ֥ק לְבָנַ֖י וְלִבְנֹתָ֑י
עַתָּ֖ה הִסְכַּ֥לְתָּֽ עֲשֽׂוֹ
28 And not let me abandon myself to kiss my sons and my daughters?
Now you have done what was silly.
3e 4B 16
7
יֶשׁ־לְאֵ֣ל יָדִ֔י לַעֲשׂ֥וֹת עִמָּכֶ֖ם רָ֑ע
וֵֽאלֹהֵ֨י אֲבִיכֶ֜ם אֶ֣מֶשׁ ׀ אָמַ֧ר אֵלַ֣י לֵאמֹ֗ר הִשָּׁ֧מֶר לְךָ֛ מִדַּבֵּ֥ר עִֽם־יַעֲקֹ֖ב מִטּ֥וֹב עַד־רָֽע
29 It is in the god of my hand to do evil with you,
but the God of your ancestors last night said to me, saying, Keep watch for yourself from speaking with Jacob from good to evil.
3c 4B 12
30
וְעַתָּה֙ הָלֹ֣ךְ הָלַ֔כְתָּ כִּֽי־נִכְסֹ֥ף נִכְסַ֖פְתָּה לְבֵ֣ית אָבִ֑יךָ
לָ֥מָּה גָנַ֖בְתָּ אֶת־אֱלֹהָֽי
30 So now, you have gone for your aching for the house of your father,
but why have you stolen my gods?
3e 4B 19
9
וַיַּ֥עַן יַעֲקֹ֖ב וַיֹּ֣אמֶר לְלָבָ֑ן
כִּ֣י יָרֵ֔אתִי כִּ֣י אָמַ֔רְתִּי פֶּן־תִּגְזֹ֥ל אֶת־בְּנוֹתֶ֖יךָ מֵעִמִּֽי
31 And Jacob answered and said to Laban,
For I feared, for I said, Lest you would rob your daughters from me.
3e 4B 12
19
עִ֠ם אֲשֶׁ֨ר תִּמְצָ֣א אֶת־אֱלֹהֶיךָ֮ לֹ֣א יִֽחְיֶה֒ נֶ֣גֶד אַחֵ֧ינוּ הַֽכֶּר־לְךָ֛ מָ֥ה עִמָּדִ֖י וְקַֽח־לָ֑ךְ
וְלֹֽא־יָדַ֣ע יַעֲקֹ֔ב כִּ֥י רָחֵ֖ל גְּנָבָֽתַם
32 ~ With whom you find your gods, let him not live. In front of our kin, recognize what is yours with me, then take for yourself.
(And Jacob did not know that Rachel had stolen them.)
3c 4B 29
13
וַיָּבֹ֨א לָבָ֜ן בְּאֹ֥הֶל יַעֲקֹ֣ב ׀ וּבְאֹ֣הֶל לֵאָ֗ה וּבְאֹ֛הֶל שְׁתֵּ֥י הָאֲמָהֹ֖ת וְלֹ֣א מָצָ֑א
וַיֵּצֵא֙ מֵאֹ֣הֶל לֵאָ֔ה וַיָּבֹ֖א בְּאֹ֥הֶל רָחֵֽל
33 And Laban came into the tent of Jacob, and into the tent of Leah, and into the tent of the two maidservants, and he found nothing,
so he went forth from the tent of Leah, and came into the tent of Rachel.
3d 4B 29
16
וְרָחֵ֞ל לָקְחָ֣ה אֶת־הַתְּרָפִ֗ים וַתְּשִׂמֵ֛ם בְּכַ֥ר הַגָּמָ֖ל וַתֵּ֣שֶׁב עֲלֵיהֶ֑ם
וַיְמַשֵּׁ֥שׁ לָבָ֛ן אֶת־כָּל־הָאֹ֖הֶל וְלֹ֥א מָצָֽא
34 But Rachel had taken the household gods and put them in the furniture of the camel, and she sat on them.
And Laban groped all the tent and found nothing.
3d 4B 23
14
וַתֹּ֣אמֶר אֶל־אָבִ֗יהָ אַל־יִ֙חַר֙ בְּעֵינֵ֣י אֲדֹנִ֔י כִּ֣י ל֤וֹא אוּכַל֙ לָק֣וּם מִפָּנֶ֔יךָ כִּי־דֶ֥רֶךְ נָשִׁ֖ים לִ֑י
וַיְחַפֵּ֕שׂ וְלֹ֥א מָצָ֖א אֶת־הַתְּרָפִֽים
35 And she said to her father, Do not be fierce, in the eyes of my lord, that not I can arise in your presence, for the way of women is on me.
And he investigated, but he did not find the household gods.
3e 4C 31
11
וַיִּ֥חַר לְיַעֲקֹ֖ב וַיָּ֣רֶב בְּלָבָ֑ן
וַיַּ֤עַן יַעֲקֹב֙ וַיֹּ֣אמֶר לְלָבָ֔ן מַה־פִּשְׁעִי֙ מַ֣ה חַטָּאתִ֔י כִּ֥י דָלַ֖קְתָּ אַחֲרָֽי
36 And Jacob burned with anger, and was excessive with Laban.
And Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my transgression? What my sin, that you have hotly pursued after me?
3e 4C 13
26
כִּֽי־מִשַּׁ֣שְׁתָּ אֶת־כָּל־כֵּלַ֗י מַה־מָּצָ֙אתָ֙ מִכֹּ֣ל כְּלֵי־בֵיתֶ֔ךָ שִׂ֣ים כֹּ֔ה נֶ֥גֶד אַחַ֖י וְאַחֶ֑יךָ
וְיוֹכִ֖יחוּ בֵּ֥ין שְׁנֵֽינוּ
37 For you have groped all my cargo. What have you found from all such cargo from your house? Set thus in front of my kin and your kin,
that they may referee between the two of us.
3e 4B 27

זֶה֩ עֶשְׂרִ֨ים שָׁנָ֤ה אָנֹכִי֙ עִמָּ֔ךְ רְחֵלֶ֥יךָ וְעִזֶּ֖יךָ לֹ֣א שִׁכֵּ֑לוּ

39 What was torn I have not brought to you. I myself have borne the loss. From my hand did you seek it,
whether stolen by day or stolen by night?
3e 4B 23
9
הָיִ֧יתִי בַיּ֛וֹם אֲכָלַ֥נִי חֹ֖רֶב וְקֶ֣רַח בַּלָּ֑יְלָה
וַתִּדַּ֥ד שְׁנָתִ֖י מֵֽעֵינָֽי
40 I was in the day desert devoured, and ice in the night,
and sleep fled from my eyes.

41 This is for me twenty years in your house. I have served you fourteen years for your two daughters and six years for your flock,
and you have adapted my wages ten times.

42 Unless the God of my ancestors, the God of Abraham, and the Dread of Yitschaq, had been mine, now you would have sent me away empty.
My poverty and the labour of my palms, God has seen, and he refereed last night.
3c 4C 30
20
וַיַּ֨עַן לָבָ֜ן וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֶֽל־יַעֲקֹ֗ב הַבָּנ֨וֹת בְּנֹתַ֜י וְהַבָּנִ֤ים בָּנַי֙ וְהַצֹּ֣אן צֹאנִ֔י וְכֹ֛ל אֲשֶׁר־אַתָּ֥ה רֹאֶ֖ה לִי־ה֑וּא

43 And Laban answered and he said to Jacob, The daughters are my daughters, and the children are my children, and the sheep are my sheep, and all that you see, mine it is.
And my daughters, what will I do for these today, or for their children that they gave birth to?
3d 4C 38

44 So now, come, let us cut a covenant, I and you,
and let it be a witness between me and you.
3d 4B 15
11
וַיִּקַּ֥ח יַעֲקֹ֖ב אָ֑בֶן
