\\INTRODUCTION TO GENESIS 28\\

In this chapter an account is given of the charge Isaac gave to Jacob
not to marry a Canaanitess, but to go to Padanaram, and take a wife
from his mother's family, and of his blessing him before he sent him
away, \\#Ge 28:1-5\\; of the notice that Esau took of this blessing and
charge, which led him to take a wife of the family of Ishmael,
\\#Ge 28:6-9\\; of the dream of the ladder, which Jacob had in his way to
Haran, \\#Ge 28:10-12\\; of the blessing which God conferred upon him
there, \\#Ge 28:13-15\\; of the awfulness of the place upon his awaking,
and of his erecting a pillar in it, and giving a name to it,
\\#Ge 28:16-19\\; and of the vow he made to God, should he be supplied
with the necessaries of life, and be kept in safety by him,
\\#Ge 28:20-22\\.
