Jacob took a stone and set it up for a standing-stone. Bible

“set it up for a standing-stone.” In this case, Jacob set up the standing-stone to be a witness to the agreement that he had made with Laban. This is the second standing-stone that Jacob erected. His first was a small one at Bethel (Gen. 28:18.) This second one was when he made a covenant with Laban (Gen. 31:45). His third one is again in Bethel (Gen. 35:14). He erected a fouth standing-stone over Rachel’s grave (Gen. 35:20). [For more on standing-stones, see commentary on Gen. 28:18].
