Jacob Flees From Laban

1And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob has taken away all that was our father's; and of that which was our father's has he gotten all this glory. 2And Jacob beheld the countenance of Laban, and, behold, it was not toward him as before. 3And the LORD said to Jacob, Return to the land of your fathers, and to your kindred; and I will be with you. 4And Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field to his flock, 5And said to them, I see your father's countenance, that it is not toward me as before; but the God of my father has been with me. 6And you know that with all my power I have served your father. 7And your father has deceived me, and changed my wages ten times; but God suffered him not to hurt me. 8If he said thus, The speckled shall be your wages; then all the cattle bore speckled: and if he said thus, The ringstraked shall be your hire; then bore all the cattle ringstraked. 9Thus God has taken away the cattle of your father, and given them to me. 10And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up my eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped on the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and spotted. 11And the angel of God spoke to me in a dream, saying, Jacob: And I said, Here am I. 12And he said, Lift up now your eyes, and see, all the rams which leap on the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and spotted: for I have seen all that Laban does to you. 13I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed the pillar, and where you vowed a vow to me: now arise, get you out from this land, and return to the land of your kindred. 14And Rachel and Leah answered and said to him, Is there yet any portion or inheritance for us in our father's house? 15Are we not counted of him strangers? for he has sold us, and has quite devoured also our money. 16For all the riches which God has taken from our father, that is ours, and our children's: now then, whatever God has said to you, do. 17Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives on camels; 18And he carried away all his cattle, and all his goods which he had gotten, the cattle of his getting, which he had gotten in Padanaram, for to go to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan. 19And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the images that were her father's. 20And Jacob stole away unawares to Laban the Syrian, in that he told him not that he fled. 21So he fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and passed over the river, and set his face toward the mount Gilead.
