Genesis 35

35
1And God-EL [The Powerful Living Word] said unto Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of), Arise, go up to Beit-El (The House of the Powerful One), and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God-El [The Powerful Living Word], that appeared unto youi when youi fled from the face of ‘Esav (hairy) youri brother.
2Then Ya’akov said unto his household, and to all that [were] with him, Put away the strange gods that [are] among you, and be clean, and change youri garments:
3And let us arise, and go up to Beit-El (House of EL the Powerful God); and I will make there an altar unto God-EL [The Powerful Living Word], who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.
4And they gave unto Ya’akov all the strange gods which [were] in their hand, and [all their] earrings which [were] in their ears; and Ya’akov hid them under the oak which [was] by Sh’khem [back or shoulder, portion].
5And they journeyed: and the terror of God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] was upon the cities that [were] round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Ya’akov.
6So Ya’akov came to Luz [Almond Tree], which [is] in the land of Kena’an (merchant; trader); or that [is], Beit-El (House of EL the Powerful God), he and all the people that [were] with him.
7And he built there an altar, and called the place El-bet-el (The Powerful House of the Powerful One): because there God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.
8But D’vorah [spirited or fiery woman, bee], Rivkah’s (Tied Up; Secured) nurse died, and she was buried beneath Beit-El (House of EL the Powerful God) under an oak: and the name of it was called Alon-Bakhut [oak of weeping].
9And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] appeared unto Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of) again, when he came out of Paddan-aram (a place of height; field; plain), and Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) him.
10And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said unto him, youri name [is] Ya’akov: youri name shall not be called any more Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of), but Isra’el (he who holds onto God [EL], Prince with the Powerful God) shall be youri name: and he called his name Isra’el (he who holds onto God [EL], Prince with the Powerful God).
11And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said unto him, I am God-El Shaddai [God Almighty, The Powerful Living Word]: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of youi, and kings shall come out of youri waist;
12And the land which I gave Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] and Yitz’chak [Laughter], to youi I will give it, and to youri seed after youi will I give the land.
13And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] went up from him in the place where he talked with him.
14And Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of) 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.
15And Ya’akov called the name of the place where God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] spoke with him, Beit-El (House of EL the Powerful God).
16And they journeyed from Beit-El (House of EL the Powerful God); and there was but a little way to come to Efrat (ash-heap: place of fruitfulness): and Rachel (ewe) travailed, and she had hard labour.
17And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; youi shall have this son also.
18And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Ben-oni (This Son Is My Progeny, some: grief): but his father called him Binyamin (This Son Is Strength).
19And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Efrat, which is Beit-Lechem (House of Bread, emphasizing: House of Battle).
20And Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of) set a pillar upon her grave: that [is] the pillar of Rachel’s [ewe] (ewe) grave unto this day.
21And Isra’el (he who holds onto God-The Creator) journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Migdal-’Edar (tower of the flock).
22And it came to pass, when Isra’el (he who holds onto God-The Creator) dwelt in that land, that Re’uven (behold a son) went and lay with Bilhah (troubled; timid) his father’s concubine: and Isra’el (he who holds onto God-The Creator) heard [it]. Now the sons of Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of) were twelve:
23The sons of Le’ah (weary; grieved); Re’uven (behold a son), Ya’akov’s (he who holds onto the heel of), firstborn, and Shim’on (heard; he who hears; man of hearing), and Levi (Levite) [Joined to] (joined), and Y’hudah (Let the Powerful One be Praised [Yah]), and Yissakhar (there is recompense), and Z’vulun (exalted; Glorious Dwelling Place):
24The sons of Rachel (ewe); Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]), and Binyamin (This Son Is Strength):
25And the sons of Bilhah (troubled; timid), Rachel’s [ewe] (ewe), Rachel’s [ewe] female servant; Dan (Judge), and Naftali (My Wrestling):
26And the sons of Zilpah (a tickling; a sprinkle), Le’ah’s (weary; grieved), female servant; Gad (troop; good fortune with much effort), and Asher (happy): these [are] the sons of Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of), which were born to him in Paddan-aram (a place of height; field; plain).
27And Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of) came unto Yitz’chak [Laughter] his father unto Mamre (firmness; fatling (fat cattle) offering), unto the city of Kiryat-Kiryat-Arba [City of Arba (fourth)] (Town of the Four Giants), which is Hevron (Place/Town Of Alliance), where Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] and Yitz’chak [Laughter] detained (held).
28And the days of Yitz’chak [Laughter] were an hundred and eighty years.
29And Yitz’chak [Laughter] gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, [being] old and full of days: and his sons ‘Esav (hairy) and Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of) buried him.
