I will give you the land which I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, and I will also give it to your descendants after you."
Then God left him.
There, where God had spoken to him, Jacob set up a memorial stone and consecrated it by pouring wine and olive oil on it. 1
He named the place Bethel.
Jacob and his family left Bethel, and when they were still some distance from Ephrath, the time came for Rachel to have her baby, and she was having difficult labor.
When her labor pains were at their worst, the midwife said to her, "Don't be afraid, Rachel; it's another boy."
But she was dying, and as she breathed her last, she named her son Benoni, but his father named him Benjamin.
When Rachel died, she was buried beside the road to Ephrath, now known as Bethlehem.
Jacob set up a memorial stone there, and it still marks Rachel's grave to this day.
Jacob moved on and set up his camp on the other side of the tower of Eder.
While Jacob was living in that land, Reuben had sexual intercourse with Bilhah, one of his father's concubines; Jacob heard about it and was furious. 2 Jacob had twelve sons.
