001:035:001
And God said unto Jacob,
Arise,
go up to Bethel,
and dwell there:
and make there an altar unto God,
that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.


001:035:002
Then Jacob said unto 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:


001:035:003
And let us arise,
and go up to Bethel;
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.


001:035:004
And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand,
and all their earrings which were in their ears;
and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.


001:035:005
And they journeyed:
and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them,
and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.


001:035:006
So Jacob came to Luz,
which is in the land of Canaan,
that is,
Bethel,
he and all the people that were with him.


001:035:007
And he built there an altar,
and called the place Elbethel:
because there God appeared unto him,
when he fled from the face of his brother.


001:035:008
But Deborah Rebekah's nurse died,
and she was buried beneath Bethel under an oak:
and the name of it was called Allonbachuth.


001:035:009
And God appeared unto Jacob again,
when he came out of Padanaram,
and blessed him.


001:035:010
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.


001:035:011
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;


001:035:012
And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac,
to thee I will give it,
and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.


001:035:013
And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him.


001:035:014
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.


001:035:015
And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him,
Bethel.


001:035:016
And they journeyed from Bethel;
and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath:
and Rachel travailed,
and she had hard labour.


001:035:017
And it came to pass,
when she was in hard labour,
that the midwife said unto her,
Fear not;
thou shalt have this son also.


001:035:018
And it came to pass,
as her soul was in departing,
(for she died)
that she called his name Benoni:
but his father called him Benjamin.


001:035:019
And Rachel died,
and was buried in the way to Ephrath,
which is Bethlehem.


001:035:020
And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave:
that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day.


001:035:021
And Israel journeyed,
and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.


001:035:022
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:


001:035:023
The sons of Leah;
Reuben,
Jacob's firstborn,
and Simeon,
and Levi,
and Judah,
and Issachar,
and Zebulun:


001:035:024
The sons of Rachel;
Joseph,
and Benjamin:


001:035:025
And the sons of Bilhah,
Rachel's handmaid;
Dan,
and Naphtali:


001:035:026
And the sons of Zilpah,
Leah's handmaid:
Gad,
and Asher:
these are the sons of Jacob,
which were born to him in Padanaram.


001:035:027
And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre,
unto the city of Arbah,
which is Hebron,
where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.


001:035:028
And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years.


001:035:029
And Isaac gave up the ghost,
and died,
and was gathered unto his people,
being old and full of days:
and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
