Douay Rheims 1609

AD 1609
But (a) Jabes invocated the God of Israel, saying: If blessing thou wilt bless me, and wilt enlarge my borders, and thy hand be with me, and thou wilt make that I be not oppressed by malice. And God granted the things that he prayed for. (a) In joining a vow to his prayer he imitated holy Jacob. Gen. 28. And they both desired temporal things for the better serving of God, & advancing his Glory; especially that they might be assisted with grace not to yield to temptations, nor sin of malice.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Fear and reverence for his master, (Calmet) as well as concern for his own safety. (Haydock)
