1 Then said God unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there, - and make there an altar, to the GOD who appeared unto thee, when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.
2 And Jacob said unto his house, and unto all who were with him, - Put away the gods of the alien which are in your midst, and purify yourselves, and change your garments; 3 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.
4 So they gave unto Jacob all the gods of the alien which were in their hand, and the earrings which were in their ears, - and Jacob hid them under the oak, which was by Shechem. 5 And they brake up, - and it came to pass that the terror of God, was on the cities which were round about them, so that they pursued not after the sons of Jacob. 6 And Jacob came in towards Luz, which was in the land of Canaan, the same, is Beth-el, - he and all the people who were with him. 7 And he built there an altar, and called the place El-Beth-el, - because, there, God revealed himself unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother,
8 And Deborah, Rebekah's nurse died, and was buried below Beth-el, under the oak, - so the name thereof was called, Allon-bacuth.
9 And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came in from Padan-aram, - and blessed him. 10 And God said to him, Thy name, is Jacob, - Thy name shall no longer he called Jacob But, Israel, shall be thy name. So 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, from thy loins, shall come forth; 12 And, the land which I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, To thee, will I give it, - And to thy seed after thee, will I give the land.
13 And God went up from him at the place where he had spoken with him.
14 And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he had spoken with him, a pillar of stone, - and he poured out thereon a drink-offering, and poured thereon oil. 15 And Jacob called the name of the place where God had spoken with him, Beth-el.
16 Then brake they up from Beth-el, and it came to pass when there was yet a stretch of country, to enter into Ephrath, that Rachel was in childbirth, and had hard-labour in her child-birth. 17 So it came to pass when she was in hard-labour in her child-birth, that the midwife said to her - Do not fear, for this also of thine, is, a son. 18 And it came to pass when her soul was going forth - for she died, that she called his name Ben-oni, - but, his father, called him, Ben-jamin. 19 So Rachel died, - and was buried on the way to Ephrath, the same, is Bethlehem. 20 And Jacob set up a pillar, over her grave, - the same, is - The Pillar of the Grave of Rachel until this day.
21 Then Israel brake up, - and spread his tent at a distance from Migdal Eder. 22 And it came to pass while Israel inhabited that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine; and Israel heard of it. And so the Sons of Israel came to be Twelve. 23 The sons of Leah, the firstborn of Jacob, Reuben, - And Simeon and Levi and Judah, and Issachar and Zebulon: 24 The sons of Rachel, Joseph and Benjamin: 25 And the sons of Bilhah, handmaid of Rachel, Dan, and Naphtali: 26 And the sons of Zilpah, handmaid of Leah, Gad and Asher: These, are the sons of Jacob, who were born to him, in Padan-aram.
27 Then came Jacob unto Isaac his father, to Mature, the city of Arba, - the same, is Hebron, where had sojourned Abraham and Isaac. 28 And the days of Isaac came to be - n hundred and eighty years. 29 And Isaac breathed his last, and died and was added unto his people, old, and satisfied with days, - and Esau and Jacob his sons buried him.
