Genesis 35

CJB 1 God said to Ya'akov, "Get up, go up to Beit-El and live there, and make there an altar to God, who appeared to you when you fled 'Esav your brother." NIV 1 Then God said to Jacob, "Go up to Bethel and settle there, and build an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you were fleeing from your brother Esau." CJB 2 Then Ya'akov said to his household and all the others with him, "Get rid of the foreign gods that you have with you, purify yourselves, and put on fresh clothes. NIV 2 So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes. CJB 3 We're going to move on and go up to Beit-El. There I will build an altar to God, who answered me when I was in such distress and stayed with me wherever I went." NIV 3 Then come, let us go up to Bethel, where I will build an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and who has been with me wherever I have gone." CJB 4 They gave Ya'akov all the foreign gods in their possession and the earrings they were wearing, and Ya'akov buried them under the pistachio tree near Sh'khem. NIV 4 So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods they had and the rings in their ears, and Jacob buried them under the oak at Shechem. CJB 5 While they were traveling, a terror from God fell upon the cities around them, so that none of them pursued the sons of Ya'akov. NIV 5 Then they set out, and the terror of God fell upon the towns all around them so that no one pursued them. CJB 6 Ya'akov and all the people with him arrived at Luz (that is, Beit-El) in the land of Kena'an. NIV 6 Jacob and all the people with him came to Luz (that is, Bethel) in the land of Canaan. CJB 7 He built there an altar and called the place El-Beit-El [God of Beit-El], because it was there that God was revealed to him, at the time when he was fleeing from his brother. NIV 7 There he built an altar, and he called the place El Bethel, because it was there that God revealed himself to him when he was fleeing from his brother. CJB 8 Then D'vorah, Rivkah's nurse, died. She was buried below Beit-El under the oak, which was given the name Alon-Bakhut [oak of weeping]. NIV 8 Now Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, died and was buried under the oak below Bethel. So it was named Allon Bacuth. CJB 9 After Ya'akov arrived from Paddan-Aram, God appeared to him again and blessed him. NIV 9 After Jacob returned from Paddan Aram, God appeared to him again and blessed him. CJB 10 God said to him, "Your name is Ya'akov, but you will be called Ya'akov no longer; your name will be Isra'el."Thus he named him Isra'el. NIV 10 God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel. " So he named him Israel. CJB 11 God further said to him, "I am El Shaddai. Be fruitful and multiply. A nation, indeed a group of nations, will come from you; kings will be descended from you. NIV 11 And God said to him, "I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will come from your body. CJB 12 Moreover, the land which I gave to Avraham and Yitz'chak I will give to you, and I will give the land to your descendants after you." NIV 12 The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and I will give this land to your descendants after you." CJB 13 Then God went up from him there where he had spoken with him. NIV 13 Then God went up from him at the place where he had talked with him. CJB 14 Ya'akov set up a standing-stone in the place where he had spoken with him, a stone pillar. Then he poured out a drink offering on it and poured oil on it. NIV 14 Jacob set up a stone pillar at the place where God had talked with him, and he poured out a drink offering on it; he also poured oil on it. CJB 15 Ya'akov called the place where God spoke with him Beit-El. NIV 15 Jacob called the place where God had talked with him Bethel. CJB 16 Then they traveled on from Beit-El, and while there was still some distance to go before arriving in Efrat, Rachel went into labor, and she had great difficulty with it. NIV 16 Then they moved on from Bethel. While they were still some distance from Ephrath, Rachel began to give birth and had great difficulty. CJB 17 While she was undergoing this hard labor, the midwife said to her, "Don't worry, this is also a son for you." NIV 17 And as she was having great difficulty in childbirth, the midwife said to her, "Don't be afraid, for you have another son." CJB 18 But she died in childbirth. As she was dying she named her son Ben-Oni [son of my grief], but his father called him Binyamin [son of the right hand, son of the south]. NIV 18 As she breathed her last--for she was dying--she named her son Ben-Oni. But his father named him Benjamin. CJB 19 So Rachel died and was buried on the way to Efrat (that is, Beit-Lechem). NIV 19 So Rachel died and was buried on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem). CJB 20 Ya'akov set up a standing-stone on her grave; it is the stand-ing-stone of Rachel's grave to this day. NIV 20 Over her tomb Jacob set up a pillar, and to this day that pillar marks Rachel's tomb. CJB 21 Isra'el continued his travels and pitched his tent on the other side of Migdal-'Eder. NIV 21 Israel moved on again and pitched his tent beyond Migdal Eder. CJB 22 It was while Isra'el was living in that land that Re'uven went and slept with Bilhah his father's concubine, and Isra'el heard about it. Ya'akov had twelve sons. NIV 22 While Israel was living in that region, Reuben went in and slept with his father's concubine Bilhah, and Israel heard of it. Jacob had twelve sons: CJB 23 The sons of Le'ah were Re'uven Ya'akov's firstborn, Shim'on, Levi, Y'hudah, Yissakhar and Z'vulun. NIV 23 The sons of Leah: Reuben the firstborn of Jacob, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar and Zebulun. CJB 24 The sons of Rachel were Yosef and Binyamin. NIV 24 The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin. CJB 25 The sons of Bilhah Rachel's slave-girl were Dan and Naftali. NIV 25 The sons of Rachel's maidservant Bilhah: Dan and Naphtali. CJB 26 And the sons of Zilpah Le'ah's slave-girl were Gad and Asher. These were Ya'akov's sons, born to him in Paddan-Aram. NIV 26 The sons of Leah's maidservant Zilpah: Gad and Asher. These were the sons of Jacob, who were born to him in Paddan Aram. CJB 27 Ya'akov came home to his father Yitz'chak at Mamre, near Kiryat-Arba (also known as Hevron), where Avraham and Yitz'chak had lived as foreigners. NIV 27 Jacob came home to his father Isaac in Mamre, near Kiriath Arba (that is, Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had stayed. CJB 28 Yitz'chak lived to be 180 years old. NIV 28 Isaac lived a hundred and eighty years. CJB 29 Then he breathed his last, died and was gathered to his people, an old man full of years; and his sons 'Esav and Ya'akov buried him.
