Genesis 31:5

καὶ εἶπεν αὐταῖς· Ὁρῶ ἐγὼ τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ πατρὸς ὑμῶν ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν πρὸς ἐμοῦ ὡς ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτην ἡμέραν· ὁ δὲ Θεὸς τοῦ πατρός μου ἦν μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ.

and he said to them, “I see the countenance of your father that it is not toward me as yesterday and third day; but the God of my father was with me.

ויאמר להן ראה אנכי את־פני אביכן כי־איננו אלי כתמל שׁלשׁם ואלהי אבי היה עמדי׃
