Genesis 28 (WEBP)

[1] Isaac called Jacob, blessed him, and commanded him, “You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.
[2] Arise, go to Paddan Aram, to the house of Bethuel your mother’s father. Take a wife from there from the daughters of Laban, your mother’s brother.
[3] May God Almighty bless you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, that you may be a company of peoples,
[4] and give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your offspring with you, that you may inherit the land where you travel, which God gave to Abraham.”
[5] Isaac sent Jacob away. He went to Paddan Aram to Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob’s and Esau’s mother.
[6] Now Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Paddan Aram, to take him a wife from there, and that as he blessed him he gave him a command, saying, “You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan;”
[7] and that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Paddan Aram.
[8] Esau saw that the daughters of Canaan didn’t please Isaac, his father.
[9] So Esau went to Ishmael, and took, in addition to the wives that he had, Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, the sister of Nebaioth, to be his wife.
[10] Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.
[11] He came to a certain place, and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. He took one of the stones of the place, and put it under his head, and lay down in that place to sleep.
[12] He dreamed and saw a stairway set upon the earth, and its top reached to heaven. Behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.
[13] Behold, Yahweh stood above it, and said, “I am Yahweh, the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac. I will give the land you lie on to you and to your offspring.
[14] Your offspring will be as the dust of the earth, and you will spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south. In you and in your offspring, all the families of the earth will be blessed.
[15] Behold, I am with you, and will keep you, wherever you go, and will bring you again into this land. For I will not leave you until I have done that which I have spoken of to you.”
[16] Jacob awakened out of his sleep, and he said, “Surely Yahweh is in this place, and I didn’t know it.”
[17] He was afraid, and said, “How awesome this place is! This is none other than God’s house, and this is the gate of heaven.”
[18] Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put under his head, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil on its top.
[19] He called the name of that place Bethel, but the name of the city was Luz at the first.
[20] Jacob vowed 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 put on,
[21] so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, and Yahweh will be my God,
[22] then this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, will be God’s house. Of all that you will give me I will surely give a tenth to you.”

Genesis 28 (KJVS)

[1] And Isaac H3327 called H7121 (8799) Jacob H3290, and blessed H1288 (8762) him, and charged H6680 (8762) him, and said H559 (8799) unto him, Thou shalt not take H3947 (8799) a wife H802 of the daughters H1323 of Canaan H3667.
[2] Arise H6965 (8798), go H3212 (8798) to Padanaram H6307, to the house H1004 of Bethuel H1328 thy mother’s H517 father H1; and take H3947 (8798) thee a wife H802 from thence of the daughters H1323 of Laban H3837 thy mother’s H517 brother H251.
[3] And God H410 Almighty H7706 bless H1288 (8762) thee, and make thee fruitful H6509 (8686), and multiply H7235 (8686) thee, that thou mayest be a multitude H6951 of people H5971;
[4] And give H5414 (8799) thee the blessing H1293 of Abraham H85, to thee, and to thy seed H2233 with thee; that thou mayest inherit H3423 (8800) the land H776 wherein thou art a stranger H4033, which God H430 gave H5414 (8804) unto Abraham H85.
[5] And Isaac H3327 sent away H7971 (8799) Jacob H3290: and he went H3212 (8799) to Padanaram H6307 unto Laban H3837, son H1121 of Bethuel H1328 the Syrian H761, the brother H251 of Rebekah H7259, Jacob’s H3290 and Esau’s H6215 mother H517.
[6] When Esau H6215 saw H7200 (8799) that Isaac H3327 had blessed H1288 (8765) Jacob H3290, and sent him away H7971 (8765) to Padanaram H6307, to take H3947 (8800) him a wife H802 from thence; and that as he blessed H1288 (8763) him he gave him a charge H6680 (8762), saying H559 (8800), Thou shalt not take H3947 (8799) a wife H802 of the daughters H1323 of Canaan H3667;
[7] And that Jacob H3290 obeyed H8085 (8799) his father H1 and his mother H517, and was gone H3212 (8799) to Padanaram H6307;
[8] And Esau H6215 seeing H7200 (8799) that the daughters H1323 of Canaan H3667 pleased H5869 not H7451 Isaac H3327 his father H1;
[9] Then went H3212 (8799) Esau H6215 unto Ishmael H3458, and took H3947 (8799) unto the wives H802 which he had Mahalath H4258 the daughter H1323 of Ishmael H3458 Abraham’s H85 son H1121, the sister H269 of Nebajoth H5032, to be his wife H802.
[10] And Jacob H3290 went out H3318 (8799) from Beersheba H884, and went H3212 (8799) toward Haran H2771.
[11] And he lighted H6293 (8799) upon a certain place H4725, and tarried there all night H3885 (8799), because the sun H8121 was set H935 (8804); and he took H3947 (8799) of the stones H68 of that place H4725, and put H7760 (8799) [them for] his pillows H4763, and lay down H7901 in that place H4725 to sleep H7901 (8799).
[12] And he dreamed H2492 (8799), and behold a ladder H5551 set up H5324 (8716) on the earth H776, and the top of it H7218 reached H5060 (8688) to heaven H8064: and behold the angels H4397 of God H430 ascending H5927 (8802) and descending H3381 (8802) on it.
[13] And, behold, the LORD H3068 stood H5324 (8737) above it, and said H559 (8799), I [am] the LORD H3068 God H430 of Abraham H85 thy father H1, and the God H430 of Isaac H3327: the land H776 whereon thou liest H7901 (8802), to thee will I give it H5414 (8799), and to thy seed H2233;
[14] And thy seed H2233 shall be as the dust H6083 of the earth H776, and thou shalt spread abroad H6555 (8804) to the west H3220, and to the east H6924, and to the north H6828, and to the south H5045: and in thee and in thy seed H2233 shall all the families H4940 of the earth H127 be blessed H1288 (8738).
[15] And, behold, I [am] with thee, and will keep H8104 (8804) thee in all [places] whither H834 thou goest H3212 (8799), and will bring thee again H7725 (8689) into this land H127; for I will not leave H5800 (8799) thee, until H834 I have done H6213 (8804) [that] which I have spoken H1696 (8765) to thee of.
[16] And Jacob H3290 awaked H3364 (8799) out of his sleep H8142, and he said H559 (8799), Surely H403 the LORD H3068 is H3426 in this place H4725; and I knew H3045 (8804) [it] not.
[17] And he was afraid H3372 (8799), and said H559 (8799), How dreadful H3372 (8737) [is] this place H4725! this [is] none other but the house H1004 of God H430, and this [is] the gate H8179 of heaven H8064.
[18] And Jacob H3290 rose up early H7925 (8686) in the morning H1242, and took H3947 (8799) the stone H68 that he had put H7760 (8804) [for] his pillows H4763, and set it up H7760 (8799) [for] a pillar H4676, and poured H3332 (8799) oil H8081 upon the top of it H7218.
[19] And he called H7121 (8799) the name H8034 of that place H4725 Bethel H1008: but H199 the name H8034 of that city H5892 [was called] Luz H3870 at the first H7223.
[20] And Jacob H3290 vowed H5087 (8799) a vow H5088, saying H559 (8800), If God H430 will be with me, and will keep me H8104 (8804) in this way H1870 that I go H1980 (8802), and will give H5414 (8804) me bread H3899 to eat H398 (8800), and raiment H899 to put on H3847 (8800),
[21] So that I come again H7725 (8804) to my father’s H1 house H1004 in peace H7965; then shall the LORD H3068 be my God H430:
[22] And this stone H68, which I have set H7760 (8804) [for] a pillar H4676, shall be God’s H430 house H1004: and of all that thou shalt give H5414 (8799) me I will surely H6237 (8763) give the tenth H6237 (8762) unto thee.

Young’s Literal Translation

Genesis 28 (YLT)

[1] And Isaac calleth unto Jacob, and blesseth him, and commandeth him, and saith to him, ‘Thou dost not take a wife of the daughters of Caanan;
[2] rise, go to Padan-Aram, to the house of Bethuel, thy mother’s father, and take for thyself from thence a wife, of the daughters of Laban, thy mother’s brother;
[3] and God Almighty doth bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and thou hast become an assembly of peoples;
[4] and He doth give to thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee and to thy seed with thee, to cause thee to possess the land of thy sojournings, which God gave to Abraham.’
[5] And Isaac sendeth away Jacob, and he goeth to Padan-Aram, unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Aramaean, brother of Rebekah, mother of Jacob and Esau.
[6] And Esau seeth that Isaac hath blessed Jacob, and hath sent him to Padan-Aram to take to himself from thence a wife-in his blessing him that he layeth a charge upon him, saying, Thou dost not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan-
[7] that Jacob hearkeneth unto his father and unto his mother, and goeth to Padan-Aram-
[8] and Esau seeth that the daughters of Canaan are evil in the eyes of Isaac his father,
[9] and Esau goeth unto Ishmael, and taketh Mahalath, daughter of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, sister of Nebajoth, unto his wives, to himself, for a wife.
[10] And Jacob goeth out from Beer-Sheba, and goeth toward Haran,
[11] and he toucheth at a certain place, and lodgeth there, for the sun hath gone in, and he taketh of the stones of the place, and maketh them his pillows, and lieth down in that place.
[12] And he dreameth, and lo, a ladder set up on the earth, and its head is touching the heavens; and lo, messengers of God are going up and coming down by it;
[13] and lo, Jehovah is standing upon it, and He saith, ‘I am Jehovah, God of Abraham thy father, and God of Isaac; the land on which thou art lying, to thee I give it, and to thy seed;
[14] and thy seed hath been as the dust of the land, and thou hast broken forth westward, and eastward, and northward, and southward, and all families of the ground have been blessed in thee and in thy seed.
[15] ‘And lo, I am with thee, and have kept thee whithersoever thou goest, and have caused thee to turn back unto this ground; for I leave thee not till that I have surely done that which I have spoken to thee.’
[16] And Jacob awaketh out of his sleep, and saith, ‘Surely Jehovah is in this place, and I knew not;’
[17] and he feareth, and saith, ‘How fearful is this place; this is nothing but a house of God, and this a gate of the heavens.’
[18] And Jacob riseth early in the morning, and taketh the stone which he hath made his pillows, and maketh it a standing pillar, and poureth oil upon its top,
[19] and he calleth the name of that place Bethel, house of God, and yet, Luz is the name of the city at the first.
[20] And Jacob voweth a vow, saying, ‘Seeing God is with me, and hath kept me in this way which I am going, and hath given to me bread to eat, and a garment to put on-
[21] when I have turned back in peace unto the house of my father, and Jehovah hath become my God,
[22] then this stone which I have made a standing pillar is a house of God, and all that Thou dost give to me-tithing I tithe to Thee.’
