shear his sheep, and Ya'aqov (3290) called Le'ah (3812) and Rachel (7354), and spake kindly unto them that they should
him to the land of K'na'an (3667).

:And in the seventh year of the fourth week Ya'aqov (3290) turned
(his face) toward Gil'ad (1568) in the first month, on the twenty-first thereof. [2135 A.M.] And Lavan (3837)

:And Y'hovah (3068) destroyed them because of the evil of their deeds; for they were very
malignant, and the Emori (567) dwelt in their stead, wicked and sinful, and there is no people to-day
which has wrought
to the full all their sins, and they have no longer length of life on the earth.

:And he sent to
his father Yits'chaq (3327) of all his substance, clothing, and food, and meat, and drink, and milk, and butter,
cheese, and some dates of the valley.
