21 And he departed himself and all that belonged to him, and passed over the river, and went into the mountain Galaad. 22 But it was told Laban the Syrian on the third day, that Jacob was fled. 23 And having taken his brethren with him, he pursued after him seven days' journey, and overtook him on Mount Galaad. 24 And God came to Laban the Syrian in sleep by night, and said to him, Take heed to thyself that thou speak not at any time to Jacob evil things. 25 And Laban overtook Jacob; and Jacob pitched his tent in the mountain; and Laban stationed his brothers in the mount Galaad. 26 And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done? wherefore didst thou run away secretly, and pillage me, and lead away my daughters as captives taken with the sword? 27 Whereas if thou hadst told me, I would have sent thee away with mirth, and with songs, and timbrels, and harp. 28 And I was not counted worthy to embrace my children and my daughters; now then thou hast wrought foolishly. 29 And now my hand has power to hurt thee; but the God of thy father spoke to me yesterday, saying, Take heed to thyself that thou speak not evil words to Jacob. 30 Now then go on thy way, for thou hast earnestly desired to depart to the house of thy father; wherefore hast thou stolen my gods?

21 καὶ ἀπέδρα αὐτὸς καὶ τὰ αὐτοῦ πάντα καὶ διέβη τὸν ποταμὸν καὶ ὥρμησεν εἰς τὸ ὄρος Γαλαάδ. 22 ἀνηγγέλη δὲ Λάβαν τῷ Σύρῳ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ, ὅτι ἀπέδρα ᾿Ιακώβ, 23 καὶ παραλαβὼν τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ μεθ᾿ ἑαυτοῦ, ἐδίωξεν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ὁδὸν ἡμερῶν ἑπτὰ καὶ κατέλαβεν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ ὄρει Γαλαάδ. 24 ἦλθε δὲ ὁ Θεὸς πρὸς Λάβαν τὸν Σύρον καθ᾿ ὕπνον τὴν νύκτα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· φύλαξε σεαυτόν, μήποτε λαλήσῃς μετὰ ᾿Ιακὼβ πονηρά. 25 καὶ κατέλαβε Λάβαν τὸν ᾿Ιακώβ· ᾿Ιακὼβ δὲ ἔπηξε τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ὄρει· Λάβαν δὲ ἔστησε τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ὄρει Γαλαάδ. 26 εἶπε δὲ Λάβαν τῷ ᾿Ιακώβ· τί ἐποίησας; ἱνατί κρυφῇ ἀπέδρας καὶ ἐκλοποφόρησάς με καὶ ἀπήγαγες τὰς θυγατέρας μου ὡς αἰχμαλώτιδας μαχαίρᾳ; 27 καὶ εἰ ἀνήγγειλάς μοι, ἐξαπέστειλα ἄν σε μετ᾿ εὐφροσύνης καὶ μετὰ μουσικῶν καὶ τυμπάνων καὶ κιθάρας, 28 καὶ οὐκ ἠξιώθην καταφιλῆσαι τὰ παιδία μου καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας μου. νῦν δὲ ἀφρόνως ἔπραξας. 29 καὶ νῦν ἰσχύει ἡ χείρ μου κακοποιῆσαί σε· ὁ δὲ Θεὸς τοῦ πατρός σου ἐχθὲς εἶπε πρός με λέγων· φύλαξε σεαυτόν, μή ποτε λαλήσῃς μετὰ ᾿Ιακὼβ πονηρά. 30 νῦν οὖν πεπόρευσαι· ἐπιθυμίᾳ γὰρ ἐπεθύμησας ἀπελθεῖν εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ πατρός σου· ἱνατί ἔκλεψας τοὺς θεούς μου;
