1 And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou a from the face of Esau thy brother.
2 Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange a that are among you, and be b, and change your garments:
3 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 a, and was with me in the way which I went.
4 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.
5 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.
6 ¶So Jacob came to a, which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Beth-el, he and all the people that were with him.
7 And he built there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el: because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.
8 But Deborah Rebekah’s a died, and she was buried beneath Beth-el under an oak: and the name of it was called b.
9 ¶And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padan-aram, and blessed him.
10 And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but a shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.
11 And God said unto him, I am a: be b and multiply; a nation and a company of c shall be of thee, and d shall come out of thy loins;
12 And the a which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.
13 And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him.
14 And Jacob set up a a in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a b offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon.
15 And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Beth-el.
16 ¶And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.
17 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.
18 And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she a) that she called his name b: but his father called him c.
19 And a died, and was buried in the way to b, which is Beth-lehem.
20 And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel’s grave unto this day.
21 ¶And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the a of Edar.
22 And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and a with Bilhah his father’s concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the b of Jacob were c:
23 The sons of Leah; a, Jacob’s firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:
24 The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:
25 And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:
26 And the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s handmaid; Gad, and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padan-aram.
27 ¶And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.
28 And the a of b were an hundred and fourscore years.
29 And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was a unto his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob b him.
