Genesis 28

And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed ahim, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. 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. 3 And bGod Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; 4 And give thee dthe blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a cstranger, which God gave unto Abraham. 5 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padan-aram 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 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; 7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padan-aram; 8 And Esau seeing ethat the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father; 9 Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had fMahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the gsister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

10 And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went htoward Haran. 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 jdreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold ithe angels of God ascending and descending on it. 13 And, kbehold, the LORD stood above it, and said, lI am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: mthe land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; 14 And pthy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the owest, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and nin thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15 And, behold, qI am with thee, and will rkeep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will sbring thee again into this land; for tI will not leave thee, uuntil 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 vthis 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 wplace Beth-el: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first. 20 And xJacob vowed a vow, saying, If yGod will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me zbread to eat, and raiment to put on, 21 So that aI come again to my father's house in peace; bthen shall the LORD be my God: 22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, cshall be God's house: dand of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.
