Genesis 35:27-29 בראשית
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 didst flee from the face of Esau thy brother.’ None Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him: ‘Put away the strange gods that are among you, and purify yourselves, and change your garments; None 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.’ None 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 terebinth which was by Shechem. None 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. None 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. None 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. None 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. None And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came from Paddan-aram, and blessed him. None 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. None 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; None 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.’ None And God went up from him in the place where He spoke with him. None And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where He spoke with him, a pillar of stone, and he poured out a drink-offering thereon, and poured oil thereon. None And Jacob called the name of the place where God spoke with him, Beth-el. None And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was still some way to come to Ephrath; and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour. None And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the mid-wife said unto her: ‘Fear not; for this also is a son for thee.’ None 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. None And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath—the same is Beth-lehem. None And Jacob set up a pillar upon her grave; the same is the pillar of Rachel’s grave unto this day. None And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond Migdal-eder. None 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: None the sons of Leah: Reuben, Jacob’s first-born, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun; None the sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin; None and the sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s handmaid: Dan and Naphtali; None 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. None And Jacob came unto Isaac his father to Mamre, to Kiriatharba—the same is Hebron—where Abraham and Isaac sojourned. None And the days of Isaac were a hundred and fourscore years. None And Isaac expired, and died, and was gathered unto his people, old and full of days; and Esau and Jacob his sons buried him. None
