Genesis 35:1-6 (Complete Jewish Bible)

View In My Bible
1 God said to Ya'akov, "Get up, go up to Beit-El and live there, and make there an altar to God, who appeared to you when you fled 'Esav your brother." 2 Then Ya'akov said to his household and all the others with him, "Get rid of the foreign gods that you have with you, purify yourselves, and put on fresh clothes. 3 We're going to move on and go up to Beit-El. There I will build an altar to God, who answered me when I was in such distress and stayed with me wherever I went." 4 They gave Ya'akov all the foreign gods in their possession and the earrings they were wearing, and Ya'akov buried them under the pistachio tree near Sh'khem. 5 While they were traveling, a terror from God fell upon the cities around them, so that none of them pursued the sons of Ya'akov. 6 Ya'akov and all the people with him arrived at Luz (that is, Beit-El) in the land of Kena'an.
