1: And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, who appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother. 2: Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the foreign gods that are among you, and purify yourselves, and change your garments: 3: and let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went. 4: And they gave unto Jacob all the foreign gods which were in their hand, and the rings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem. 5: And they journeyed: and a terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob. 6: So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan (the same is Beth-el), he and all the people that were with him. 7: And he built there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el; because there God was revealed unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother. 8: And Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried below Beth-el under the oak: and the name of it was called Allon-bacuth. 9: And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came from Paddan-aram, and blessed him. 10: And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. 11: And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins; 12: and the land which I gave unto Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land. 13: And God went up from him in the place where he spake with him. 14: And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he spake with him, a pillar of stone: and he poured out a drink-offering thereon, and poured oil thereon. 15: And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Beth-el. 16: And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was still some distance to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labor. 17: And it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; for now thou shalt have another son. 18: And it came to pass, as her soul was departing (for she died), that she called his name Ben-oni: but his father called him Benjamin. 19: And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath (the same is Beth-lehem). 20: And Jacob set up a pillar upon her grave: the same is the Pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day. 21: And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Eder. 22: And it came to pass, while Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard of it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve: 23: The sons of Leah: Reuben, Jacob's first-born, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun; 24: the sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin; 25: and the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid: Dan and Naphtali; 26: and the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid: Gad and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, that were born to him in Paddan-aram. 27: And Jacob came unto Isaac his father to Mamre, to Kiriath-arba (the same is Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac sojourned. 28: And the days of Isaac were a hundred and fourscore years. 29: And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, old and full of days: and Esau and Jacob his sons buried him.
