Genesis 31:47 Laban called it Jegar Sahadutha, but Jacob called it Galeed.

je-gar-sa-ha-du'-tha (yeghar sahadhutha'; Septuagint Bounos marturei, "(the) mound witnesses"): The name given by the Aramean, Laban, to the "cairn of witness," called by Jacob GALEED (which see) (Genesis 31:47).

JE'GAR-SAHADU'THA, means "the heap," or pile of "testimony," see Gen. 31:47.
