Lavan replied, “Yes, let’s make this official. Let us agree that neither one of us will ever harm the other. Let this peace agreement last for generations to come.”
Yaakov single-handedly brought an enormous stone and set it upright as a monument to their peace agreement. Yaakov’s sons gathered more stones and piled them near the big stone. Yaakov named this place Galeid, meaning: Gal – pile, [is an] Eid – witness.
Lavan woke up early the next morning, kissed his family goodbye, and returned to Charan, while Yaakov’s family continued their journey back to the land of Cana’an.
