11 And the angel of God said to me in a dream, Jacob; and I said, What is it? 12 And he said, Look up with thine eyes, and behold the he-goats and the rams leaping on the sheep and the she-goats, speckled and variegated and spotted with ash-coloured spots; for I have seen all things that Laban does to thee. 13 I am God that appeared to thee in the place of God where thou anointedst a pillar to me, and vowedst to me there a vow; now then arise and depart out of this land, depart into the land of thy nativity, and I will be with thee. 14 And Rachel and Lea answered and said to him, Have we yet a part or inheritance in the house of our father? 15 Are we not considered strangers by him? for he has sold us, and quite devoured our money. 16 All the wealth and the glory which God has taken from our father, it shall be our's and our children's; now then do whatsoever God has said to thee. 17 And Jacob arose and took his wives and his children up on the camels; 18 and he took away all his possessions and all his store, which he had gotten in Mesopotamia, and all that belonged to him, to depart to Isaac his father in the land of Chanaan. 19 And Laban went to shear his sheep; and Rachel stole her father's images. 20 And Jacob hid [the matter from] Laban the Syrian, so as not to tell him that he ran away.

11 καὶ εἶπέ μοι ὁ ἄγγελος τοῦ Θεοῦ καθ᾿ ὕπνον· ᾿Ιακώβ· ἐγὼ δὲ εἶπα· τί ἐστι; 12 καὶ εἶπεν· ἀνάβλεψον τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου, καὶ ἰδὲ τοὺς τράγους καὶ τοὺς κριοὺς ἀναβαίνοντας ἐπὶ τὰ πρόβατα καὶ τὰς αἶγας διαλεύκους καὶ ποικίλους καὶ σποδοειδεῖς ραντούς· ἑώρακα γάρ ὅσα σοι Λάβαν ποιεῖ· 13 ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ Θεὸς ὁ ὀφθείς σοι ἐν τόπῳ Θεοῦ, οὗ ἤλειψάς μοι ἐκεῖ στήλην καὶ ηὔξω μοι ἐκεῖ εὐχήν· νῦν οὖν ἀνάστηθι καὶ ἔξελθε ἐκ τῆς γῆς ταύτης καὶ ἄπελθε εἰς τὴν γῆν τῆς γενέσεώς σου, καὶ ἔσομαι μετὰ σοῦ. 14 καὶ ἀποκριθεῖσαι Ραχὴλ καὶ Λεία εἶπαν αὐτῷ· μή ἐστιν ἡμῖν ἔτι μερὶς ἢ κληρονομία ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν; 15 οὐχ ὡς αἱ ἀλλότριαι λελογίσμεθα αὐτῷ; πέπρακε γὰρ ἡμᾶς καὶ καταβρώσει κατέφαγε τὸ ἀργύριον ἡμῶν. 16 πάντα τὸν πλοῦτον καὶ τὴν δόξαν, ἣν ἀφείλετο ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν, ἡμῖν ἔσται καὶ τοῖς τέκνοις ἡμῶν. νῦν οὖν ὅσα σοι εἴρηκεν ὁ Θεός, ποίει. 17 ᾿Αναστὰς δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἔλαβε τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ παιδία αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰς καμήλους. 18 καὶ ἀπήγαγε πάντα τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτῷ, καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν ἀποσκευὴν αὐτοῦ, ἣν περιεποιήσατο ἐν τῇ Μεσοποταμίᾳ, καὶ πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ ἀπελθεῖν πρὸς ᾿Ισαὰκ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ εἰς γῆν Χαναάν. 19 Λάβαν δὲ ᾤχετο κεῖραι τὰ πρόβατα αὐτοῦ· ἔκλεψε δὲ Ραχὴλ τὰ εἴδωλα τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς. 20 ἔκρυψε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ Λάβαν τὸν Σύρον τοῦ μὴ ἀναγγεῖλαι αὐτῷ, ὅτι ἀποδιδράσκει.
