Genesis 35


35:1 And God said to Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell
 there: and make there an altar to God, who appeared to thee
 when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.
35:2 Then Jacob said to 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:
35:3 And let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will make
 there an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my
 distress, and was with me in the way which I went.
35:4 And they gave to Jacob all the strange gods which [were] in
 their hand, and [the] ear-rings which [were] in their ears; and
 Jacob hid them under the oak which [was] by Shechem.
35:5 And they journeyed: and the terror of God was on the cities
 that [were] round them, and they did not pursue after the sons
 of Jacob.
35:6 So Jacob came to Luz, which [is] in the land of Canaan
 (that is Beth-el) he and all the people that [were] with him.
35:7 And he erected there an altar, and called the place
 El-beth-el; because there God appeared to him, when he fled
 from the face of his brother.
35:8 But Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, died, and she was buried
 beneath Beth-el, under an oak: and the name of it was called
 Allon-bachuth.
35:9 And God appeared to Jacob again when he came out of
 Padan-aram; and blessed him.
35:10 And God said to 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.
35:11 And God said to him, I [am] God Almighty: be fruitful and
 multiply; a nation and a multitude of nations shall spring from
 thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins.
35:12 And the land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, to thee I
 will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.
35:13 And God went up from him, in the place where he talked
 with him.
35:14 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.
35:15 And Jacob called the name of the place where God spoke
 with him, Beth-el.
35:16 And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was but a
 little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she
 had hard labor.
35:17 And it came to pass when she was in hard labor, that the
 midwife said to her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.
35:18 And it came to pass as her soul was in departing (for she
 died) that she called his name Ben-oni: but his father called
 him Benjamin.
35:19 And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath,
 which [is] Beth-lehem.
35:20 And Jacob set a pillar on her grave: that [is] the pillar
 of Rachel's grave to this day.
35:21 And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower
 of Edar.
35:22 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:
35:23 The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's first-born, and Simeon,
 and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:
35:24 The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:
35:25 And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and
 Naphtali:
35:26 And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid; Gad, and Asher.
 These [are] the sons of Jacob, who were born to him in
 Padan-aram.
35:27 And Jacob came to Isaac his father to Mamre, to the city
 of Arbah (which [is] Hebron) where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.
35:28 And the days of Isaac were a hundred and eighty years.
35:29 And Isaac expired and died, and was gathered to his
 people, [being] old and full of days; and his sons Esau and
 Jacob buried him.
