Genesis 35 (asv)

35:1And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, who appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.35:2Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the foreign gods that are among you, and purify yourselves, and change your garments: 35:3and let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went. 35:4And they gave unto Jacob all the foreign gods which were in their hand, and the rings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem. 35:5And they journeyed: and a terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob. 35:6So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan (the same is Beth-el), he and all the people that were with him. 35:7And he built there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el; because there God was revealed unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother. 35:8And Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried below Beth-el under the oak: and the name of it was called Allon-bacuth.

35:9And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came from Paddan-aram, and blessed him. 35:10And God said unto 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. 35:11And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins; 35:12and the land which I gave unto Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land. 35:13And God went up from him in the place where he spake with him. 35:14And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he spake with him, a pillar of stone: and he poured out a drink-offering thereon, and poured oil thereon. 35:15And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Beth-el.

35:16And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was still some distance to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labor. 35:17And it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; for now thou shalt have another son. 35:18And it came to pass, as her soul was departing (for she died), that she called his name Ben-oni: but his father called him Benjamin. 35:19And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath (the same is Beth-lehem). 35:20And Jacob set up a pillar upon her grave: the same is the Pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day. 35:21And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Eder. 35:22And it came to pass, while Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard of it.

Now the sons of Jacob were twelve: 35:23The sons of Leah: Reuben, Jacob's first-born, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun; 35:24the sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin; 35:25and the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid: Dan and Naphtali; 35:26and the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid: Gad and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, that were born to him in Paddan-aram. 35:27And Jacob came unto Isaac his father to Mamre, to Kiriath-arba (the same is Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.

35:28And the days of Isaac were a hundred and fourscore years. 35:29And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, old and full of days: and Esau and Jacob his sons buried him.
