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." 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." NLT 2 So Jacob told everyone in his household, "Destroy your idols, wash yourselves, and put on clean clothing. 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. NLT 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."

Multiply and fill the earth! Become a great nation, even many nations. Kings will be among your descendants! 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. NLT 12 And I will pass on to you the land I gave to Abraham and Isaac.
