25Jacob, he wen put up his tents awready, up country Gilead side. Den Laban come by Jacob, an Laban an his ohana guys put up dea tents, same place not too far. 26Wen dey come togedda, Laban tell Jacob, “Eh! Wat you wen do? How come you neva tell me?

If you find dem wit one a my peopo, dat guy no goin stay alive! I say dis in front all our ohana guys: You show me one ting I get dass yours, an you can take um back!” Jacob talk lidat cuz he neva know dat Rachel wen steal da idol kine gods.
33So Laban go inside Jacob tent firs, den inside Leah tent an da tents fo da two slave wahines dat work fo his two daughtas, but he neva find notting. Afta he pau inside Leah tent, he go inside Rachel tent. 34But befo Laban go inside Rachel tent, Rachel take da idol kine gods an put um inside da saddle fo her camel, an sit down on top um.

Jacob Make Grumble Wit Laban
36So den, Jacob come real huhu an start fo make grumble wit Laban. He tell um, “So, wat you wen find?! You tink I goin do someting fo mess up our ohana?! Wat kine bad ting I do to you, dat you chase me lidat?! 37Cuz you wen go look ova eryting I get. So! Wat ting you wen find hea dat come from yoa house?

38“Twenny year now, I stay wit you. Yoa girl kine sheeps an goats, dey neva lose even one bebe. Yoa boy kine sheeps, I neva kill even one fo eat. 39Wen da wild animals kill one a your sheeps o goats, I neva bring da body to you. I pay fo um, so you neva lose notting. You make me pay, no matta was day time o nite time dat da wild animal wen steal um. 40Dis how was: I work day time wen too hot fo work, an nite time I come real cold, an I no can sleep. 41Yeah, dass wat happen to me, da twenny year I stay wit you. I wen work fourteen year fo marry yoa two daughtas, plus six year fo pay you fo da sheeps an goats. An den, you change my pay plenny times.
42“But da God dat my fadda pray to, dass da God fo Abraham. He da One dat make Isaac scared an shaky cuz he so awesome. He stay wit me. If he neva stay wit me, you no give me notting, an tell me fo go way. But God, he see how plenny hard time I get, an how plenny hard I work. Las nite, wat he tell you wass right, cuz he da Judge.”
Laban An Jacob Make Strong Promise To Each Odda
43Den Laban tell Jacob dis: “Kay den. Da wahines, dey my daughtas. Da kids, dey my grankids. Da sheeps an goats, dey my sheeps an goats. Eryting you see, mines. But wat? I no can do notting now bout my daughtas, an da kids dey wen born. 44So come. Now, we make deal, me an you. We put up someting so erybody goin know wat wen happen hea wit me an you.”
45So Jacob, he take one big rock an put um up jalike one post. 46Den Jacob tell his ohana guys, “Go bring some mo rocks.” So dey get odda rocks an make one big pile. Right dea by da pile, Jacob guys an Laban guys wen eat togedda. 47Laban give dat pile a rocks da name Yegar-sahaduta, dat mean, “Da Rock Pile Fo Rememba Wat Happen,” Aram language. Jacob, he give um da name Gal-ed, dat mean same ting, Hebrew language.
Laban An Jacob Make Strong Promise
48Laban tell, “Dis rock pile hea, so erybody goin know wat wen happen wit me an you, dis day.” Dass how come get da name Gal-ed. 49Dey call da rock pile Mizpah too, dat mean “Place Fo Watch From,” cuz Laban tell, “I like Yahweh watch you an watch me, all da time dat we no can see each odda. 50If you make any kine to my daughtas, o if you marry odda wahines, no matta no mo nobody dat know. Cuz no foget: God know wat happen wit you an me.”
51Den Laban tell Jacob, “Look. Dis da rock pile I wen make, an dis da rock dat stand dea jalike one pos. I goin stay one side, an you stay da odda side. 52Dat pile an dat pos, dey stay dea so us no goin foget dat I not suppose to go da odda side dis pile fo bus you up, an you not suppose to go da odda side dis pile an dis pos fo bus me up. 53I like da God fo yoa granfadda Abraham an da God fo my granfadda Nahor be da judges, if I stay right o if you stay right.”
So Jacob make one strong promise fo stick wit da deal, an he aks da God dat make his fadda Isaac stay scared an shaky cuz he so awesome, fo make shua he do eryting right. 54Den Jacob make sacrifice to God dea inside da up country, an he tell Laban an all da odda ohana people fo come eat wit him. Afta, dey all wen sleep dea, up country side.
55Nex morning, Laban get up early. He kiss his daughtas an his grankids, an aks God fo do good tings fo dem. Den he go home.
