Isaac called for Jacob and blessed him. Then he commanded him, "You are not to marry any of the Canaanite women.
Quick! Go to Paddan Aram. Go to the home of Bethuel, your mother's father, and get yourself a wife from there from the daughters of your uncle Laban.
May God Almighty bless you, make you fertile, and increase the number of your descendants so that you will become a community of people.
May he give to you and your descendants the blessing of Abraham so that you may take possession of the land where you are now living, the land that God gave to Abraham."
Isaac sent Jacob to Paddan Aram. Jacob went to live with Laban, son of Bethuel the Aramean and brother of Rebekah. She was the mother of Jacob and Esau.
Esau learned that Isaac had blessed Jacob and had sent him away to Paddan Aram to get a wife from there. He learned that Isaac had blessed Jacob and had commanded him not to marry any of the Canaanite women.
He also learned that Jacob had obeyed his father and mother and had left for Paddan Aram.
Esau realized that his father Isaac disapproved of Canaanite women.
So he went to Ishmael and married Mahalath, daughter of Abraham's son Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth, in addition to the wives he had.
Jacob left Beersheba and traveled toward Haran.
