17 Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives on the camels,
18 and he took away all his possessions to go to Isaac his father, to the land of Canaan.
19 Now Laban had gone to shear his sheep; and Rachel stole the teraphim [Gods] that were her father’s.

23 He pursued him seven days’ journey and overtook him.
24 God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream of the night, and said to him,
“Be careful that you don’t speak to Jacob [going] from good to bad.”
