Jacob Is Sent Away

1 So Isaac called Jacob and 1blessed him and charged him, and said to him, "2You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan. 2 "Arise, go to Paddan-aram, to the house of 3Bethuel your mother's father; and from there take to yourself a wife from the daughters of Laban your mother's brother. 3 "May a4God Almighty 5bless you and 6make you fruitful and 7multiply you, that you may become a 8company of peoples. 4 "May He also give you the 9blessing of Abraham, to you and to your bdescendants with you, that you may 10possess the land of your 11sojournings, which God gave to Abraham." 5 Then 12Isaac sent Jacob away, and he went to Paddan-aram to Laban, son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, the mother of Jacob and Esau. 6 Now Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Paddan-aram to take to himself a wife from there, and that when he blessed him he charged him, saying, "13You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan," 7 and that Jacob had obeyed his father and his mother and had gone to Paddan-aram. 8 So Esau saw that 14the daughters of Canaan displeased chis father Isaac; 9 and Esau went to Ishmael, and dmarried , 15besides the wives that he had, Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael, Abraham's son, the sister of Nebaioth.
