Genesis 35

35
1Then God sayde to Iaakob, Arise, goe vp to Beth-el and dwell there, and make there an altar vnto God, that appeared vnto thee, when thou fleddest from Esau thy brother. 2Then saide Iaakob vnto his houshold and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and clense your selues, and change your garments: 3For we will rise and goe vp to Beth-el, and I will make an altar there vnto God, which heard me in the day of my tribulation, and was with me in the way which I went. 4And they gaue vnto Iaakob all the strange gods, which were in their hands, and all their earings which were in their eares, and Iaakob hidde them vnder an oke, which was by Shechem. 5Then they went on their iourney, and the feare of God was vpon the cities that were roud about them: so that they did not follow after the sonnes of Iaakob. 6So came Iaakob to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan: (the same is Beth-el) hee and all the people that was with him. 7And he built there an altar, and had called the place, The God of Beth-el, because that God appeared vnto him there, when he fled from his brother. 8Then Deborah Rebekahs nourse dyed, and was buried beneath Beth-el vnder an oke: and he called the name of it Allon Bachuth. 9Againe God appeared vnto Iaakob, after he came out of Padan Aram, and blessed him. 10Moreouer God said vnto him, Thy name is Iaakob: thy name shalbe no more called Iaakob, but Israel shalbe thy name: and hee called his name Israel. 11Againe God said vnto him, I am God all sufficient. growe, and multiplie. a nation and a multitude of nations shall spring of thee, and Kings shall come out of thy loynes. 12Also I will giue the lande, which I gaue to Abraham and Izhak, vnto thee: and vnto thy seede after thee will I giue that land. 13So God ascended from him in the place where he had talked with him. 14And Iaakob set vp a pillar in the place where he talked with him, a pillar of stone, and powred drinke offring thereon: also hee powred oyle thereon. 15And Iaakob called the name of the place, where God spake with him, Beth-el. 16Then they departed from Beth-el, and when there was about halfe a daies iourney of ground to come to Ephrath, Rahel trauailed, and in trauailing she was in perill. 17And whe she was in paines of her labour, the midwife saide vnto her, Feare not: for thou shalt haue this sonne also. 18Then as she was about to yeelde vp the Ghost (for she died) she called his name Ben-oni, but his father called him Beniamin. 19Thus died Rahel, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Beth-lehem. 20And Iaakob set a pillar vpon her graue: This is the pillar of Rahels graue vnto this day. 21Then Israel went forwarde, and pitched his tent beyond Migdal-eder. 22Now, when Israel dwelt in that land, Reuben went, and lay with Bilhah his fathers concubine, and it came to Israels eare. And Iaakob had twelue sonnes. 23The sonnes of Leah: Reuben Iaakobs eldest sonne, and Simeon, and Leui, and Iudah, and Issachar, and Zebulun. 24The sonnes of Rahel: Ioseph and Beniamin. 25And the sonnes of Bilhah Rahels maide: Dan and Naphtali. 26And the sonnes of Zilpah Leahs maide: Gad and Asher. These are the sonnes of Iaakob, which were borne him in Padan Aram. 27Then Iaakob came vnto Izhak his father to Mamre a citie of Arbah: this is Hebron, where Abraham and Izhak were strangers. 28And the daies of Izhak were an hundreth and fourescore yeeres. 29And Izhak gaue vp the ghost and died, and was gathered vnto his people, being olde and full of daies: and his sonnes Esau and Iaakob buried him.

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.
