1: And God said to Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there: and make there an altar to God, who appeared to thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother. 2: Then Jacob said to his household, and to all that [were] with him, Put away the strange gods that [are] among you, and be clean, and change your garments: 3: And let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will make there an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went. 4: And they gave to Jacob all the strange gods which [were] in their hand, and [the] ear-rings which [were] in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which [was] by Shechem. 5: And they journeyed: and the terror of God was on the cities that [were] round them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob. 6: So Jacob came to Luz, which [is] in the land of Canaan (that is Beth-el) he and all the people that [were] with him. 7: And he erected there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el; because there God appeared to him, when he fled from the face of his brother. 8: But Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, died, and she was buried beneath Beth-el, under an oak: and the name of it was called Allon-bachuth. 9: And God appeared to Jacob again when he came out of Padan-aram; and blessed him. 10: And God said to 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 to him, I [am] God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a multitude of nations shall spring from thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins. 12: And the land which I gave to 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 talked with him. 14: And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, [even] a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink-offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon. 15: And Jacob called the name of the place where God spoke with him, Beth-el. 16: And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was but a little way 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 to her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also. 18: And it came to pass as her soul was in 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, which [is] Beth-lehem. 20: And Jacob set a pillar on her grave: that [is] the pillar of Rachel's grave to this day. 21: And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar. 22: And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard [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, who were born to him in Padan-aram. 27: And Jacob came to Isaac his father to Mamre, to the city of Arbah (which [is] Hebron) where Abraham and Isaac sojourned. 28: And the days of Isaac were a hundred and eighty years. 29: And Isaac expired and died, and was gathered to his people, [being] old and full of days; and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
