Jacob Moves to Bethel

1 Then God said to Jacob, "Arise, go up to 1Bethel and alive there, and make an altar there to 2God, who appeared to you 3when you fled bfrom your brother Esau." 2 So Jacob said to his 4household and to all who were with him, "Put away 5the foreign gods which are among you, and 6purify yourselves and change your garments; 3 and let us arise and go up to Bethel, and I will make 7an altar there to God, 8who answered me in the day of my distress and 9has been with me cwherever I have gone." 4 So they gave to Jacob all the foreign gods which dthey had and the rings which were in their ears, and Jacob hid them under the eoak which was near Shechem. 5 As they journeyed, there was f10a great terror upon the cities which were around them, and they did not pursue the sons of Jacob. 6 So Jacob came to 11Luz (that is, Bethel ), which is in the land of Canaan, he and all the people who were with him. 7 12He built an altar there, and called the place gEl-bethel, because there God had revealed Himself to him when he fled hfrom his brother.
