Genesis 31:44-46 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

44 [a]Come, now, let us make a covenant, you and I; and it will be a treaty between you and me.”

45 Then Jacob took a stone and set it up as a sacred pillar. 46 Jacob said to his kinsmen, “Gather stones.” So they got stones and made a mound; and they ate there at the mound.

Footnotes:

  1. 31:44–54 The treaty is a typical covenant between two parties: Jacob was bound to treat his wives (Laban’s daughters) well, and Laban was bound not to cross Jacob’s boundaries with hostile intent.
