35:1 And God said to Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there: and make there an altar to God, who appeared to thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.
35:2 Then Jacob said to his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments:
35:3 And let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will make there an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.
35:4 And they gave to Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and the ear-rings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.
35:5 And they journeyed: and the terror of God was on the cities that were round them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.
35:6 So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan (that is Beth-el) he and all the people that were with him.
35:7 And he erected there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el; because there God appeared to him, when he fled from the face of his brother.
35:8 But Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, died, and she was buried beneath Beth-el, under an oak: and the name of it was called Allon-bachuth.

35:10 And God said to him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name; and he called his name Israel.
35:11 And God said to him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a multitude of nations shall spring from thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins.
35:12 And the land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.
35:13 And God went up from him, in the place where he talked with him.
35:14 And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink-offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon.
35:15 And Jacob called the name of the place where God spoke with him, Beth-el.
35:16 And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labor.
35:17 And it came to pass when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said to her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.
35:18 And it came to pass as her soul was in departing (for she died) that she called his name Ben-oni: but his father called him Benjamin.
35:19 And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Beth-lehem.
35:20 And Jacob set a pillar on her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave to this day.
35:21 And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.
35:22 And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:
35:23 The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's first-born, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:
35:24 The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:
35:25 And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:
35:26 And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid; Gad, and Asher. These are the sons of Jacob, who were born to him in Padan-aram.
35:27 And Jacob came to Isaac his father to Mamre, to the city of Arbah (which is Hebron) where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.
35:28 And the days of Isaac were a hundred and eighty years.
35:29 And Isaac expired and died, and was gathered to his people, being old and full of days; and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
