Takes Esauís Blessing (continued)
1 And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and
charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife
of the daughters of Canaan.
2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy
mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the
daughters of Laban thy mother's brother.
3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful,
and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of
4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to
thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land
wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.
5 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram
unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of
Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.
6 When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent
him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and
that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou
shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan;
7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and
was gone to Padanaram;
8 And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased
not Isaac his father;
9 Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives
which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son,
the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.
Jacobís Dream at Bethel
10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went
11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried
there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the
stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay
down in that place to sleep.
12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the
earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the
angels of God ascending and descending on it.
13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am
the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac:
the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to
14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and
thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and
to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed
shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in
all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again
into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done
that which I have spoken to thee of.
16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said,
Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.
17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this
place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is
the gate of heaven.
18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the
stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a
pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.
19 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the
name of that city was called Luz at the first.
20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with
me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me
bread to eat, and raiment to put on,
21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace;
then shall the LORD be my God:
22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall
be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will
surely give the tenth unto thee.
