Genesis - Chapter 35
  • 1. God said to Jacob, "Arise, go up to Bethel and dwell there. Make an altar there to the God who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau."
  • 2. So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Put away the foreign gods that are among you and purify yourselves and change your garments.
  • 3. Then let us arise and go up to Bethel, so that I may make there an altar to the God who answers me in the day of my distress and has been with me wherever I have gone."
  • 4. So they gave to Jacob all the foreign gods that they had, and the rings that were in their ears. Jacob hid them under the terebinth tree that was near Shechem.
  • 5. And as they journeyed, a terror from God fell upon the cities that were around them, so that they did not pursue the sons of Jacob.
  • 6. And Jacob came to Luz (that is, Bethel), which is in the land of Canaan, he and all the people who were with him,
  • 7. and there he built an altar and called the place El-bethel, because there God had revealed himself to him when he fled from his brother.
  • 8. And Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, died, and she was buried under an oak below Bethel. So he called its name Allon-bacuth.
  • 9. God appeared to Jacob again, when he came from Paddan-aram, and blessed him.
  • 10. And God said to him, "Your name is Jacob; no longer shall your name be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your 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 company of nations shall come from you, and kings shall come from your own body.
  • 12. The land that I gave to Abraham and Isaac I will give to you, and I will give the land to your offspring after you."
  • 13. Then God went up from him in 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. He poured out a drink offering on it and poured oil on it.
  • 15. So Jacob called the name of the place where God had spoken with him Bethel.
  • 16. Then they journeyed from Bethel. When they were still some distance from Ephrath, Rachel went into labor, and she had hard labor.
  • 17. And when her labor was at its hardest, the midwife said to her, "Do not fear, for you have another son."
  • 18. And as her soul was departing (for she was dying), she called his name Ben-oni; but his father called him Benjamin.
  • 19. So Rachel died, and she was buried on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem),
  • 20. and Jacob set up a pillar over her tomb. It is the pillar of Rachel's tomb, which is there to this day.
  • 21. Israel journeyed on and pitched his tent beyond the tower of Eder.
  • 22. While Israel lived in that land, Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine. And Israel heard of it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve.
  • 23. The sons of Leah: Reuben (Jacob's firstborn), Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun.
  • 24. The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.
  • 25. The sons of Bilhah, Rachel's servant: Dan and Naphtali.
  • 26. The sons of Zilpah, Leah's servant: Gad and Asher. These were the sons of Jacob who were born to him in Paddan-aram.
  • 27. And Jacob came to his father Isaac at Mamre, or Kiriath-arba (that is, Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had sojourned.
  • 28. Now the days of Isaac were 180 years.
  • 29. And Isaac breathed his last, and he died and was gathered to his people, old and full of days. And his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
