And let us arise, and go up to Beth-el, - that I may make there an altar to the GOD who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way that I went.
Then said Yahweh unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy fathers and to thy kindred, - that I may be with thee.
But that the God of my father - The God of Abraham, and the Dread of Isaac - Proved to he mine, Surely even now, empty, hadst thou let me go? My humiliation and the wearying toil of my hands, God had seen, And therefore gave sentence last night!
Then was Jacob greatly afraid, and in distress. So he divided the people that were with him and the flocks and the herds and the camels into two camps,
And Jacob was left alone, - and there wrestled a man with him, until the uprisings of the dawn.
Then made they outcry to Yahweh, in their peril, Out of their distresses, he rescued them;
And he dreamed, and lo! a stairway, planted earthwards, with, its top, reaching towards the heavens, - and lo! messengers of God, ascending and descending thereon;
Lo! then, I, am with thee, so will I keep thee in every place whithersoever thou mayest go, and will bring thee back unto this soil, - For I will not forsake thee until I have done that of which I have spoken to thee.
And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, - If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way whereon, I, am going, and give me bread to eat and raiment to put on;
Call upon me, then, in the day of distress, I will deliver thee, that thou mayest glorify me.
I will enter thy house with ascending-sacrifices, I will pay unto thee my vows,
He shall call me, and I will answer him, With him, will, I, be, in distress, I will rescue him, and will honour him;
Bless, O my soul, Yahweh, - And all that is within me, his holy Name;
Let them give thanks to Yahweh for his lovingkindness, and for his wonderful dealings with the sons of men;
I love Yahweh - because he heareth my voice, my supplications;
I beseech thee, O Yahweh - for, I, am thy servant, - I, am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid, Thou hast loosened my bonds.
Open to me the gates of righteousness, I will enter therein, I will give thanks unto Yah.
For, a people, In Zion, shall dwell, In Jerusalem, - As for weeping, thou shalt not weep! As for favour, he will grant thee favour, at the sound of thine outcry, - As soon as he heareth, he hath answered thee!
When thou passest through the waters, with thee, I am, Or, through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee, - When thou walkest through fire, thou shall not be scorched, And, a flame, shall not kindle upon thee;
