New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
16 They moved on from Bethel. Ephrath wasn't very far away when Rachel began to have a baby. She was having a very hard time of it. 16 Then they moved on from Bethel. While they were still some distance from Ephrath, Rachel began to give birth and had great difficulty.
17 The woman who helped her saw that she was having problems. So she said to her, "Don't be afraid. You have another son." 17 And as she was having great difficulty in childbirth, the midwife said to her, "Don't be afraid, for you have another son."
18 But Rachel was dying. As she took her last breath, she named her son Ben-Oni. But his father named him Benjamin. 18 As she breathed her last--for she was dying--she named her son Ben-Oni. But his father named him Benjamin.
19 So Rachel died. Her body was buried beside the road to Ephrath. Ephrath was also called Bethlehem. 19 So Rachel died and was buried on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem).
20 Jacob set up a pillar over her tomb. The pillar marks the place of Rachel's tomb to this very day. 20 Over her tomb Jacob set up a pillar, and to this day that pillar marks Rachel's tomb.
