Genesis 28

28:1 And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him,
 and said to him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of
28:2 Arise, go to Padan-aram, 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.
28:3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and
 multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;
28:4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy
 seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land in which thou
 art a stranger, which God gave to Abraham.
28:5 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padan-aram, to
 Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah,
 Jacob's and Esau's mother.
28:6 When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him
 away to Padan-aram, 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;
28:7 And that Jacob obeyed his father, and his mother, and was
 gone to Padan-aram;
28:8 And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not
 Isaac his father;
28:9 Then went Esau to Ishmael, and took to the wives which he
 had, Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister
 of Nebajoth, to be his wife.
28:10 And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went towards
28:11 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.
28:12 And he dreamed, and behold, a ladder set upon the earth,
 and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold, the angels of
 God ascending and descending on it.
28:13 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
 on which thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed.
28:14 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.
28:15 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 declared to thee.
28:16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the
 LORD is in this place; and I knew [it] not.
28:17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful [is] this place!
 this [is] no other but the house of God, and this [is] the gate
 of heaven.
28:18 And Jacob rose 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 on the top of it.
28:19 And he called the name of that place Beth-el: but the name
 of that city [was called] Luz at the first.
28:20 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,
28:21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then
 shall the LORD be my God:
28:22 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 to thee.
