Genesis 31:1-16 [ Verse 4 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
1 Now Jacob F574 heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, "Jacob has taken away all that was our father's, and from what belonged to our father he has made all this wealth." F575 2 Jacob saw the attitude F576 of Laban, and behold, it was not friendly toward him as formerly. 3 Then the LORD said to Jacob, "Return R904 to the land of your fathers and to your relatives, and I R905 will be with you." 4 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to his flock in the field, 5 and said to them, "I R906 see your father's attitude, F577 that it is not friendly toward me as formerly, but the R907 God of my father has been with me. 6 "You R908 know that I have served your father with all my strength. 7 "Yet your father has cheated R909 me and changed R910 my wages ten times; however, God R911 did not allow him to hurt me. 8 "If he R912 spoke thus, `The speckled shall be your wages,' then all the flock brought forth speckled; and if he spoke thus, `The striped shall be your wages,' then all the flock brought forth striped. 9 "Thus God has taken R913 away your father's livestock and given them to me. 10 "And it came about at the time when the flock were mating F578 that I lifted up my eyes and saw in a dream, and behold, the male goats which were mating F579 were striped, speckled, and mottled. 11 "Then the R914 angel of God said to me in the dream, `Jacob,' and I said, `Here I am.' 12 "He said, `Lift up now your eyes and see that all the male goats which are mating F580 are striped, speckled, and mottled; for I R915 have seen all that Laban has been doing to you. 13 `I am the R916 God of Bethel, where you anointed R917 a pillar, where you made a vow to Me; now arise, leave F581 this land, and return R918 to the land of your birth.' " 14 Rachel and Leah said to him, "Do we still have any portion or inheritance in our father's house? 15 "Are we not reckoned by him as foreigners? For he R919 has sold us, and has also entirely F582 consumed our F583 purchase price. 16 "Surely all the wealth which God has taken away from our father belongs to us and our children; now then, do whatever God has said to you."
