3 And may my God bless thee, and increase thee, and multiply thee, and thou shalt become gatherings of nations.
4 And may he give thee the blessing of my father Abraam, even to thee and to thy seed after thee, to inherit the land of thy sojourning, which God gave to Abraam.
5 So Isaac sent away Jacob, and he went into Mesopotamia to Laban the son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebecca the mother of Jacob and Esau.
6 And Esau saw that Isaac blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Mesopotamia of Syria as he blessed him, to take to himself a wife thence, and he charged him, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of the Chananites;
7 and Jacob hearkened to his father and his mother, and went to Mesopotamia of Syria.
8 And Esau also having seen that the daughters of Chanaan were evil before his father Isaac,
9 Esau went to Ismael, and took Maeleth the daughter of Ismael, the son of Abraam, the sister of Nabeoth, a wife in addition to his wives.
10 And Jacob went forth from the well of the oath, and departed into Charrhan.
11 And came to a certain place and slept there, for the sun had gone down; and he took of the stones of the place, and put it at his head, and lay down to sleep in that place,
12 and dreamed, and behold a ladder fixed on the earth, whose top reached to heaven, and the angels of God ascended and descended on it.
