Gn 28:1And Isaac called Jacob and blessed him; and he charged him and said to him, You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan.

Gn 28:2Rise up, go to Paddan-aram, to the house of Bethuel your mother’s father; and take from there a wife from the daughters of Laban your mother’s brother.

Gn 28:3And may the All-sufficient God bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may become a company of peoples.

Gn 28:4And may He give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your seed with you, that you may possess this land of your sojournings, which God gave to Abraham.

Gn 28:5And Isaac sent Jacob away, and he went to Paddan-aram, to Laban the son of Bethuel the Aramaean, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob’s and Esau’s mother.

Gn 28:6Now Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and had sent him away to Paddan-aram to take a wife from there, and that when he blessed him, he charged him, saying, You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan,

Gn 28:7And that Jacob had obeyed his father and his mother and had gone to Paddan-aram.

Gn 28:8So Esau saw that the daughters of Canaan displeased Isaac his father.

Gn 28:9Then Esau went to Ishmael and took Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, and the sister of Nebaioth to be his wife, in addition to the wives that he had.

Gn 28:10And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba and went toward Haran.

Gn 28:11And he came to a certain place and spent the night there, because the sun had set. And he took one of the stones of the place and put it under his head, and he lay down in that place.

Gn 28:12And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.

Gn 28:13And there was Jehovah, standing above it; and He said, I am Jehovah, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac. The land on which you lie, I will give to you and to your seed.

Gn 28:14And your seed will be as the dust of the earth, and you will spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south, and in you and in your seed will all the families of the earth be blessed.

Gn 28:15And, behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go and will cause you to return to this land, for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.

Gn 28:16And Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, Surely Jehovah is in this place, and I did not know it.

Gn 28:17And he was afraid and said, How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

Gn 28:18And Jacob rose up early in the morning and took the stone that he had put under his head, and he set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it.

Gn 28:19And he called the name of that place Bethel, but the name of the city was Luz previously.

Gn 28:20And 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 garments to put on,

Gn 28:21So that I return to my father’s house in peace, then Jehovah will be my God,

Gn 28:22And this stone, which I have set up as a pillar, will be God’s house; and of all that You give me I will surely give one tenth to You.
