Genesis 28:2-12

2 Go instead to Mesopotamia, to the home of your grandfather Bethuel, and marry one of the young women there, one of your uncle Laban's daughters.
3 May Almighty God bless your marriage and give you many children, so that you will become the father of many nations!
4 May he bless you and your descendants as he blessed Abraham, and may you take possession of this land, in which you have lived and which God gave to Abraham!" 1
5 Isaac sent Jacob away to Mesopotamia, to Laban, who was the son of Bethuel the Aramean and the brother of Rebecca, the mother of Jacob and Esau.
6 Esau learned that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Mesopotamia to find a wife. He also learned that when Isaac blessed him, he commanded him not to marry a Canaanite woman.
7 He found out that Jacob had obeyed his father and mother and had gone to Mesopotamia.
8 Esau then understood that his father Isaac did not approve of Canaanite women.
9 So he went to Ishmael son of Abraham and married his daughter Mahalath, who was the sister of Nebaioth.
10 Jacob left Beersheba and started toward Haran. 2
11 At sunset he came to a holy place and camped there. He lay down to sleep, resting his head on a stone.
12 He dreamed that he saw a stairway reaching from earth to heaven, with angels going up and coming down on it. 3
