Genesis 35:1-6 NLT

1 God said to Jacob, "Now move on to Bethel and settle there. Build an altar there to worship me -- the God who appeared to you when you fled from your brother, Esau."
2 So Jacob told everyone in his household, "Destroy your idols, wash yourselves, and put on clean clothing.
3 We are now going to Bethel, where I will build an altar to the God who answered my prayers when I was in distress. He has stayed with me wherever I have gone."
4 So they gave Jacob all their idols and their earrings, and he buried them beneath the tree near Shechem.
5 When they set out again, terror from God came over the people in all the towns of that area, and no one attacked them.
6 Finally, they arrived at Luz (now called Bethel) in Canaan.
