Genesis 28

CEB 1 So Isaac summoned Jacob, blessed him, and gave him these orders: "Don't marry a Canaanite woman. NRS 1 Then Isaac called Jacob and blessed him, and charged him, "You shall not marry one of the Canaanite women. CEB 2 Get up and go to Paddan-aram, to the household of Bethuel, your mother's father, and once there, marry one of the daughters of Laban, your mother's brother. NRS 2 Go at once to Paddan-aram to the house of Bethuel, your mother's father; and take as wife from there one of the daughters of Laban, your mother's brother. CEB 3 God Almighty will bless you, make you fertile, and give you many descendants so that you will become a large group of peoples. NRS 3 May God Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and numerous, that you may become a company of peoples. CEB 4 He will give you and your descendants Abraham's blessing so that you will own the land in which you are now immigrants, the land God gave to Abraham." NRS 4 May he give to you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your offspring with you, so that you may take possession of the land where you now live as an alien—land that God gave to Abraham." CEB 5 So Isaac sent Jacob off, and he traveled to Paddan-aram, to Laban son of Bethuel the Aramean and brother of Rebekah, Jacob and Esau's mother. NRS 5 Thus Isaac sent Jacob away; and he went to Paddan-aram, to Laban son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother. CEB 6 Esau understood that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him to Paddan-aram to marry a woman from there. He recognized that, when Isaac blessed Jacob, he had ordered him, "Don't marry a Canaanite woman," NRS 6 Now Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Paddan-aram to take a wife from there, and that as he blessed him he charged him, "You shall not marry one of the Canaanite women," CEB 7 and that Jacob had listened to his father and mother and gone to Paddan-aram. NRS 7 and that Jacob had obeyed his father and his mother and gone to Paddan-aram. CEB 8 Esau realized that his father Isaac considered Canaanite women unacceptable. NRS 8 So when Esau saw that the Canaanite women did not please his father Isaac, CEB 9 So he went to Ishmael and married Mahalath daughter of Abraham's son Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth, in addition to his other wives. NRS 9 Esau went to Ishmael and took Mahalath daughter of Abraham's son Ishmael, and sister of Nebaioth, to be his wife in addition to the wives he had. CEB 10 Jacob left Beer-sheba and set out for Haran. NRS 10 Jacob left Beer-sheba and went toward Haran. CEB 11 He reached a certain place and spent the night there. When the sun had set, he took one of the stones at that place and put it near his head. Then he lay down there. NRS 11 He came to a certain place and stayed there for the night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place. CEB 12 He dreamed and saw a raised staircase, its foundation on earth and its top touching the sky, and God's messengers were ascending and descending on it. NRS 12 And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, the top of it reaching to heaven; and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. CEB 13 Suddenly the LORD was standing on it and saying, "I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. NRS 13 And the Lord stood beside him and said, "I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your offspring; CEB 14 Your descendants will become like the dust of the earth; you will spread out to the west, east, north, and south. Every family of earth will be blessed because of you and your descendants. NRS 14 and your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you and in your offspring. CEB 15 I am with you now, I will protect you everywhere you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done everything that I have promised you." NRS 15 Know that I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you." CEB 16 When Jacob woke from his sleep, he thought to himself, The LORD is definitely in this place, but I didn't know it. NRS 16 Then Jacob woke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place—and I did not know it!" CEB 17 He was terrified and thought, This sacred place is awesome. It's none other than God's house and the entrance to heaven. NRS 17 And he was afraid, and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven." CEB 18 After Jacob got up early in the morning, he took the stone that he had put near his head, set it up as a sacred pillar, and poured oil on the top of it. NRS 18 So Jacob rose early in the morning, and he took the stone that he had put under his head and set it up for a pillar and poured oil on the top of it. CEB 19 He named that sacred place Bethel, though Luz was the city's original name. NRS 19 He called that place Bethel; but the name of the city was Luz at the first. CEB 20 Jacob made a solemn promise: "If God is with me and protects me on this trip I'm taking, and gives me bread to eat and clothes to wear, NRS 20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, "If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear, CEB 21 and I return safely to my father's household, then the LORD will be my God. NRS 21 so that I come again to my father's house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God, CEB 22 This stone that I've set up as a sacred pillar will be God's house, and of everything you give me I will give a tenth back to you." NRS 22 and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God's house; and of all that you give me I will surely give one-tenth to you."
