NCV 1 God said to Jacob, "Go to the city of Bethel and live there. Make an altar to the God who appeared to you there when you were running away from your brother Esau." NIV 1 Then God said to Jacob, “Go up to Bethel and settle there, and build an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you were fleeing from your brother Esau.” NCV 2 So Jacob said to his family and to all who were with him, "Put away the foreign gods you have, and make yourselves clean, and change your clothes. NIV 2 So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes. NCV 3 We will leave here and go to Bethel. There I will build an altar to God, who has helped me during my time of trouble. He has been with me everywhere I have gone." NIV 3 Then come, let us go up to Bethel, where I will build an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and who has been with me wherever I have gone.” NCV 4 So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods they had, and the earrings they were wearing, and he hid them under the great tree near the town of Shechem. NIV 4 So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods they had and the rings in their ears, and Jacob buried them under the oak at Shechem. NCV 5 Then Jacob and his sons left there. But God caused the people in the nearby cities to be afraid, so they did not follow them. NIV 5 Then they set out, and the terror of God fell on the towns all around them so that no one pursued them. NCV 6 And Jacob and all the people who were with him went to Luz, which is now called Bethel, in the land of Canaan. NIV 6 Jacob and all the people with him came to Luz (that is, Bethel) in the land of Canaan. NCV 7 There Jacob built an altar and named the place Bethel, after God, because God had appeared to him there when he was running from his brother. NIV 7 There he built an altar, and he called the place El Bethel, because it was there that God revealed himself to him when he was fleeing from his brother. NCV 8 Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, died and was buried under the oak tree at Bethel, so they named that place Oak of Crying. NIV 8 Now Deborah, Rebekah’s nurse, died and was buried under the oak outside Bethel. So it was named Allon Bakuth. NCV 9 When Jacob came back from Northwest Mesopotamia, God appeared to him again and blessed him. NIV 9 After Jacob returned from Paddan Aram, God appeared to him again and blessed him. NCV 10 God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but you will not be called Jacob any longer. Your new name will be Israel." So he called him Israel. NIV 10 God said to him, “Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel. ” So he named him Israel. NCV 11 God said to him, "I am God Almighty. Have many children and grow in number as a nation. You will be the ancestor of many nations and kings. NIV 11 And God said to him, “I am God Almighty ; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will be among your descendants. NCV 12 The same land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I will give to you and your descendants." NIV 12 The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and I will give this land to your descendants after you.” NCV 13 Then God left him. NIV 13 Then God went up from him at the place where he had talked with him. NCV 14 Jacob set up a stone on edge in that place where God had talked to him, and he poured a drink offering and olive oil on it to make it special for God. NIV 14 Jacob set up a stone pillar at the place where God had talked with him, and he poured out a drink offering on it; he also poured oil on it. NCV 15 And Jacob named the place Bethel. NIV 15 Jacob called the place where God had talked with him Bethel.
