26 And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done, that thou hast stolen away runawares to me, and scarried away my daughters, as captives taken with the sword? 27 Wherefore didst thou flee away secretly, and †steal away from me; and didst not tell me, that I might have sent thee away with mirth, and with songs, with tabret, and with harp? 28 And hast not suffered me tto kiss my sons and my daughters? uthou hast now done foolishly in so doing. 29 It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the wGod of your father spake unto me xyesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad. 30 And now, though thou wouldest needs be gone, because thou sore longedst after thy father’s house, yet wherefore hast thou ystolen my gods? 31 And Jacob answered and said to Laban, Because I was afraid: for I said, Peradventure thou wouldest take by force thy daughters from me. 32 With whomsoever thou findest thy gods, let him not live: before our brethren discern thou what is thine with me, and take it to thee. For Jacob knew not that Rachel had stolen them.
