Going on the good path

And He departed on the 16th of the month of Adar

translation: This one to dwell in eternity for he went in
the good path
Genesis 31:51: And Laban
said to Jacob: Behold, this heap and this monument that I
have set-forth between me and you: 52: This heap bears
witness as does this monument that I shall not pass this
heap to you and that you shall not pass this heap unto me to
do, as is this monument, to do evil. 53. The God of Abraham
and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, shall judge
us, and Jacob swore on the fear of his father Isaac. 54 And
Jacob offered an offering on the mountain and he called out
to his brethren to eat bread and they ate bread and they
lodged in the mountain.
