1 So Isaac called Jacob and ablessed him and charged him, and said to him, “bYou shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan. 2 Arise, go to Paddan-aram, to the house of aBethuel your mother’s father; and from there take to yourself a wife from the daughters of Laban your mother’s brother. 3 May IaGod Almighty bbless you and cmake you fruitful and dmultiply you, that you may become a ecompany of peoples. 4 May He also give you the ablessing of Abraham, to you and to your Idescendants with you, that you may bpossess the land of your csojournings, which God gave to Abraham.” 5 Then aIsaac sent Jacob away, and he went to Paddan-aram to Laban, son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, the mother of Jacob and Esau.

10 ¶ Then Jacob departed from aBeersheba and went toward bHaran. 11 He Icame to IIa acertain place and spent the night there, because the sun had set; and he took one of the stones of the place and put it IIIunder his head, and lay down in that place. 12 aHe had a dream, and behold, a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven; and behold, bthe angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 And behold, athe LORD stood Iabove it and said, “I am the LORD, bthe God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it cto you and to dyour IIdescendants. 14 Your Idescendants will also be like athe dust of the earth, and you will IIspread out bto the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and cin you and in your Idescendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15 Behold, aI am with you and bwill keep you wherever you go, and cwill bring you back to this land; for dI will not leave you until I have done what I have Ipromised you.” 16 Then Jacob aawoke from his sleep and said, “bSurely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.” 17 He was afraid and said, “aHow awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.”

Isaac blesseth Jacob, and sendeth him to Padan-aram.

1 ¶ And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. 2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother's brother. 3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; 4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham. 5 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.

6 ¶ When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan; 7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padanaram; 8 And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father; 9 Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

The vision of Jacob's ladder.

10 ¶ And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. 11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put [them for] his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. 12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. 13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I [am] the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; 14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15 And, behold, I [am] with thee, and will keep thee in all [places] whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done [that] which I have spoken to thee of.
