NLT 1 Then God said to Jacob, “Get ready and move to Bethel and settle there. Build an altar there to 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, “Get rid of all your pagan idols, purify 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 been with me wherever I have gone.” 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." NLT 4 So they gave Jacob all their pagan idols and earrings, and he buried them under the great tree near Shechem. 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. NLT 5 As they set out, a terror from God spread over the people in all the towns of that area, so no one attacked Jacob’s family. NIV 5 Then they set out, and the terror of God fell upon the towns all around them so that no one pursued them. NLT 6 Eventually, Jacob and his household arrived at Luz (also called Bethel) in Canaan. NIV 6 Jacob and all the people with him came to Luz (that is, Bethel) in the land of Canaan.
