So Jacob got a stone and set it up as a memorial.
He told his men to gather some rocks and pile them up. Then they ate a meal beside the pile of rocks.
Laban named it Jegar Sahadutha, while Jacob named it Galeed.
Laban said to Jacob, "This pile of rocks will be a reminder for both of us." That is why that place was named Galeed.
Laban also said, "May the Lord keep an eye on us while we are separated from each other." So the place was also named Mizpah.
Laban went on, "If you mistreat my daughters or if you marry other women, even though I don't know about it, remember that God is watching us.
Here are the rocks that I have piled up between us, and here is the memorial stone.
Both this pile and this memorial stone are reminders. I will never go beyond this pile to attack you, and you must never go beyond it or beyond this memorial stone to attack me.
The God of Abraham and the God of Nahor will judge between us." Then, in the name of the God whom his father Isaac worshiped, Jacob solemnly vowed to keep this promise.
He killed an animal, which he offered as a sacrifice on the mountain, and he invited his men to the meal. After they had eaten, they spent the night on the mountain.
