Jegar-sahadutha

Jegar-sahadutha

(heap of testimony ), the Aramaean name given by Laban the Syrian to the heap of stones which he erected as a memorial of the compact between Jacob and himself. ( Genesis 31:47 ) Galeed, a "witness heap," which is given as the Hebrew equivalent, does not exactly represent Jegar-sahadutha.
