Jacob’s Return to Bethel
1 Then God said to Jacob, “Arise, go up to aBethel and dwell there; and make an altar there to God, bwho appeared to you cwhen you fled from the face of Esau your brother.”
2 And Jacob said to his ahousehold and to all who were with him, “Put away bthe foreign gods that are among you, cpurify yourselves, and change your garments.
3 “Then let us arise and go up to Bethel; and I will make an altar there to God, awho answered me in the day of my distress band has been with me in the way which I have gone.”
4 So they gave Jacob all the foreign 1gods which were in their hands, and the aearrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under bthe terebinth tree which was by Shechem.
5 And they journeyed, and athe terror of God was upon the cities that were all around them, and they did not pursue the sons of Jacob.
6 So Jacob came to aLuz (that is, Bethel), which is in the land of , he and all the people who were with him.
7 And he abuilt an altar there and called the place 1El Bethel, because bthere God appeared to him when he fled from the face of his brother.
8 Now aDeborah, Rebekah’s nurse, died, and she was buried below Bethel under the terebinth tree. So the name of it was called 1Allon Bachuth.
9 Then aGod appeared to Jacob again, when he came from Padan Aram, and bblessed him.
10 And God said to him, “Your name is Jacob; ayour name shall not be called Jacob anymore, bbut Israel shall be your name.” So He called his name Israel.
11 Also God said to him: a“I am God Almighty. bBe fruitful and multiply; ca nation and a company of nations shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body.
12 “The aland which I gave Abraham and Isaac I give to you; and to your descendants after you I give this land.”
13 Then God awent1 up from him in the place where He talked with him.
14 So Jacob aset up a pillar in the place where He talked with him, a pillar of stone; and he poured a drink offering on it, and he poured oil on it.
15 And Jacob called the name of the place where God spoke with him, aBethel.
Death of Rachel
16 Then they journeyed from Bethel. And when there was but a little distance to go to Ephrath,
Rachel labored in childbirth, and she had hard labor.
17 Now it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said to her, “Do not fear; ayou will have this son also.”
18 And so it was, as her soul was departing (for she died), that she called his name 1Ben-Oni; but his father called him 2Benjamin.
19 So aRachel died and was buried on the way to bEphrath (that is, Bethlehem).
20 And Jacob set a pillar on her grave, which is the pillar of Rachel’s grave ato this day.
21 Then Israel journeyed and pitched his tent beyond athe tower of Eder.
22 And it happened, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and alay with Bilhah his father’s concubine; and Israel heard about it.

25 the sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s maidservant, were Dan and Naphtali;
26 and the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s maidservant, were Gad and Asher. These were the sons of Jacob who were born to him in Padan Aram.
Death of Isaac
27 Then Jacob came to his father Isaac at aMamre, or bKirjath Arba1 (that is, Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had dwelt.
28 Now the days of Isaac were one hundred and eighty years.
29 So Isaac breathed his last and died, and awas 1gathered to his people, being old and full of days. And bhis sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

Joseph Dreams of Greatness
1 Now Jacob dwelt in the land awhere his father was a 1stranger, in the land of
2 This is the history of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brothers. And the lad was with the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives; and Joseph brought aa bad report of them to his father.
3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was athe son of his old age. Also he bmade him a tunic of many colors.
4 But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they ahated him and could not speak peaceably to him.
5 Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more.
6 So he said to them, “Please hear this dream which I have dreamed:
7 a“There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf.”
8 And his brothers said to him, “Shall you indeed reign over us? Or shall you indeed have dominion over us?” So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.
9 Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, “Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, athe sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.”
10 So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and ayour brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?”
11 And ahis brothers envied him, but his father bkept the matter in mind.
Joseph Sold by His Brothers
12 Then his brothers went to feed their father’s flock in aShechem.
13 And Israel said to Joseph, “Are not your brothers feeding the flock in Shechem? Come, I will send you to them.” So he said to him, “Here I am.”
14 Then he said to him, “Please go and see if it is well with your brothers and well with the flocks, and bring back word to me.” So he sent him out of the Valley of aHebron, and he went to Shechem.
15 Now a certain man found him, and there he was, wandering in the field. And the man asked him, saying, “What are you seeking?”
16 So he said, “I am seeking my brothers. aPlease tell me where they are feeding their flocks.”
17 And the man said, “They have departed from here, for I heard them say, ‘Let us go to Dothan.’ ” So Joseph went after his brothers and found them in aDothan.
18 Now when they saw him afar off, even before he came near them, athey conspired against him to kill him.
19 Then they said to one another, “Look, this 1dreamer is coming!
20 a“Come therefore, let us now kill him and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, ‘Some wild beast has devoured him.’ We shall see what will become of his dreams!”
21 But aReuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands, and said, “Let us not kill him.”
22 And Reuben said to them, “Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit which is in the wilderness, and do not lay a hand on him”—that he might deliver him out of their hands, and bring him back to his father.
23 So it came to pass, when Joseph had come to his brothers, that they astripped Joseph of his tunic, the tunic of many colors that was on him.
24 Then they took him and cast him into a pit. And the pit was empty; there was no water in it.
25 aAnd they sat down to eat a meal. Then they lifted their eyes and looked, and there was a company of bIshmaelites, coming from Gilead with their camels, bearing spices, cbalm, and myrrh, on their way to carry them down to Egypt.
26 So said to his brothers, “What profit is there if we kill our brother and aconceal his blood?
27 “Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, and alet not our hand be upon him, for he is bour brother and cour flesh.” And his brothers listened.
28 Then aMidianite traders passed by; so the brothers pulled Joseph up and lifted him out of the pit, band sold him to the Ishmaelites for ctwenty shekels of silver. And they took Joseph to Egypt.
29 Then Reuben returned to the pit, and indeed Joseph was not in the pit; and he atore his clothes.
30 And he returned to his brothers and said, “The lad ais no more; and I, where shall I go?”
31 So they took aJoseph’s tunic, killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the tunic in the blood.
32 Then they sent the tunic of many colors, and they brought it to their father and said, “We have found this. Do you know whether it is your son’s tunic or not?”
33 And he recognized it and said, “It is my son’s tunic. A awild beast

3 aIf the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?
4 The LORD is in His holy temple, The LORD’s athrone is in heaven; bHis eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.
