Jacob's Departure

1 Isaac summoned Jacob, blessed him, and commanded him: "Don't take a wife from the Canaanite women. 2 Go at once to Paddan-aram, to the house of Bethuel, your mother's father. Marry one of the daughters of Laban, your mother's brother. 3 May God Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and multiply youa so that you become an assembly of peoples.b 4 May God give you and your offspring the blessing of Abrahamc so that you may possess the land where you live as an alien, the land God gave to Abraham."d 5 So Isaac sent Jacob to Paddan-aram, to Laban son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, the mother of Jacob and Esau. 6 Esau noticed that Isaac blessed Jacob and sent him to Paddan-aram to get a wife there. When he blessed him, Isaac commanded Jacob not to marry a Canaanite woman.
