They gave to Ya`akov all the foreign gods which were in their hands, and the rings which were in their ears; and Ya`akov hid them under the oak which was by Shekhem.

So Ya`akov came to Luz, which is in the land of Kana`an (the same is Beit-El), he and all the people who were with him.
He built an altar there, and called the place El-Beit-El; because there God was revealed to him, when he fled from the face of his brother.
Devorah, Rivka's nurse, died, and she was buried below Beit-El under the oak; and the name of it was called Allon-Bakhut.
God appeared to Ya`akov again, when he came from Paddan-Aram, and blessed him.
God said to him, "Your name is Ya`akov. Your name shall not be Ya`akov any more, but your name will be Yisra'el." He named him Yisra'el.
God said to him, "I am El Shaddai. Be fruitful and multiply. A nation and a company of nations will be from you, and kings will come out of your loins.
The land which I gave to Avraham and Yitzchak, I will give it to you, and to your seed after you will I give the land."
God went up from him in the place where he spoke with him.
