Genesis 31:48
Context
Jacob's Covenant with Laban

43And Laban answered and said to Jacob, These daughters are my daughters, and these children are my children, and these cattle are my cattle, and all that you see is mine: and what can I do this day to these my daughters, or to their children which they have born? 44Now therefore come you, let us make a covenant, I and you; and let it be for a witness between me and you. 45And Jacob took a stone, and set it up for a pillar. 46And Jacob said to his brothers, Gather stones; and they took stones, and made an heap: and they did eat there on the heap. 47And Laban called it Jegarsahadutha: but Jacob called it Galeed. 48And Laban said, This heap is a witness between me and you this day. Therefore was the name of it called Galeed; 49And Mizpah; for he said, The LORD watch between me and you, when we are absent one from another. 50If you shall afflict my daughters, or if you shall take other wives beside my daughters, no man is with us; see, God is witness between me and you. 51And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold this pillar, which I have cast between me and you: 52This heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I will not pass over this heap to you, and that you shall not pass over this heap and this pillar to me, for harm. 53The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, judge between us. And Jacob swore by the fear of his father Isaac. 54Then Jacob offered sacrifice on the mount, and called his brothers to eat bread: and they did eat bread, and tarried all night in the mount. 55And early in the morning Laban rose up, and kissed his sons and his daughters, and blessed them: and Laban departed, and returned to his place.
