Genesis 24:1-67

  1 And Abraham was old, and well astricken in age: and the Lord had bblessed Abraham in all cthings.
  2 And Abraham said unto his eldest aservant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my bthigh:
  3 And I will make thee aswear by the Lord, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt bnot take a cwife unto my son of the daughters of the dCanaanites, among whom I dwell:
  4 But thou shalt go unto my acountry, and to my bkindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
  5 And the servant said unto him, aPeradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son again unto the land from whence thou camest?
  6 And Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my son thither again.
  7 ¶ The aLord God of heaven, which took me from my bfather’s house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this cland; he shall send his dangel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.
  8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again.
  9 And the servant put his hand under the athigh of Abraham his master, and sware to him concerning that matter.
  10 ¶ And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master, and departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he arose, and went to aMesopotamia, unto the city of bNahor.
  11 And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out to draw water.
  12 And he said, O aLord God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, bsend me good speed this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham.
  13 Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw awater:
  14 And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that thou hast aappointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.
  15 ¶ And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to aBethuel, son of bMilcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham’s brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder.
  16 And the damsel was very afair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man bknown her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up.
  17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher.
  18 And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.
  19 And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.
  20 And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels.
  21 And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether the Lord had made his journey aprosperous or not.
  22 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden aearring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold;
  23 And said, Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee: is there room in thy father’s house for us to lodge in?
  24 And she said unto him, I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah, which she bare unto aNahor.
  25 She said moreover unto him, We have both straw and provender enough, and room to lodge in.
  26 And the man abowed down his head, and worshipped the Lord.
  27 And he said, Blessed be the aLord God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of his bmercy and his truth: I being in the way, the Lord cled me to the house of my master’s brethren.
  28 And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother’s house these things.
  29 ¶ And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban: and aLaban ran out unto the man, unto the well.
  30 And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets upon his sister’s hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus spake the man unto me; that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well.
  31 And he said, Come in, thou ablessed of the Lord; wherefore standest thou without? for I have prepared the house, and room for the camels.
  32 ¶ And the man came into the house: and he ungirded his camels, and gave straw and aprovender for the camels, and water to bwash his feet, and the men’s feet that were with him.
  33 And there was set meat before him to eat: but he said, I will not eat, until I have told mine errand. And he said, Speak on.
  34 And he said, I am Abraham’s servant.
  35 And the Lord hath ablessed my master greatly; and he is become bgreat: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.
  36 And Sarah my master’s wife bare a ason to my master when she was bold: and unto him hath he cgiven all that he hath.
  37 And my master made me aswear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell:
  38 But thou shalt go unto my afather’s house, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son.
  39 And I said unto my master, aPeradventure the woman will not follow me.
  40 And he said unto me, The aLord, before whom I bwalk, will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father’s house:
  41 Then shalt thou be clear from this my oath, when thou comest to my kindred; and if they give not thee one, thou shalt be clear from my oath.
  42 And I came this day unto the well, and said, O Lord God of my master Abraham, if now thou do prosper my way which I go:
  43 Behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass, that when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink;
  44 And she say to me, Both drink thou, and I will also draw for thy camels: let the same be the woman whom the Lord hath aappointed out for my master’s son.
  45 And before I had done speaking in mine aheart, behold, Rebekah came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down unto the well, and drew water: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray thee.
  46 And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her shoulder, and said, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: so I drank, and she made the camels drink also.
  47 And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter art thou? And she said, The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor’s son, whom Milcah bare unto him: and I put the aearring upon her face, and the bracelets upon her hands.
  48 And I abowed down my head, and worshipped the Lord, and blessed the Lord God of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right way to take my master’s brother’s bdaughter unto his son.
  49 And now if ye will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me: and if not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or to the left.
  50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing proceedeth from the Lord: we cannot aspeak unto thee bad or good.
  51 Behold, Rebekah is before thee, take her, and go, and let her be thy master’s son’s awife, as the Lord hath spoken.
  52 And it came to pass, that, when Abraham’s servant heard their words, he worshipped the Lord, bowing himself to the earth.
  53 And the servant brought forth ajewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things.
  54 And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with him, and tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he said, Send me away unto my master.
  55 And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us a few days, at the least ten; after that she shall go.
  56 And he said unto them, Hinder me not, seeing the Lord hath aprospered my way; send me away that I may go to my master.
  57 And they said, We will call the damsel, and enquire at her mouth.
  58 And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go.
  59 And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her anurse, and Abraham’s servant, and his men.
  60 And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the amother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the bgate of those which chate them.
  61 ¶ And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his way.
  62 And Isaac came from the way of the awell Lahai-roi; for he dwelt in the south country.
  63 And Isaac went out to ameditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.
  64 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, ashe lighted off the camel.
  65 For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself.
  66 And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.
  67 And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was acomforted after his mother’s bdeath.

Genesis 25:1-34

  1 Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.
  2 And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and aMedan, and bMidian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
  3 And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.
  4 And the sons of aMidian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of bKeturah.
  5 ¶ And aAbraham bgave all that he had unto Isaac.
  6 But unto the sons of the aconcubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and bsent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the ceast country.
  7 And these are the adays of the years of bAbraham’s life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.
  8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good aold age, an old man, and full of years; and was bgathered to his people.
  9 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael aburied him in the cave of bMachpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;
  10 The field which Abraham apurchased of the sons of Heth: there was Abraham bburied, and Sarah his wife.
  11 ¶ And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the awell Lahai-roi.
  12 ¶ Now these are the agenerations of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom bHagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s handmaid, cbare unto Abraham:
  13 And these are the names of the sons of aIshmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
  14 And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
  15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:
  16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; atwelve princes according to their nations.
  17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered unto his people.
  18 And they dwelt from aHavilah unto bShur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his brethren.
  19 ¶ And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham’s son: aAbraham begat Isaac:
  20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of aBethuel the Syrian of bPadan-aram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.
  21 And Isaac intreated the Lord for his awife, because she was bbarren: and the Lord was cintreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
  22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to aenquire of the Lord.
  23 And the Lord said unto her, aTwo nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the belder shall serve the younger.
  24 ¶ And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
  25 And the first came out red, all over like an ahairy garment; and they called his name bEsau.
  26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau’s aheel; and his bname was called cJacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.
  27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning ahunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a bplain man, dwelling in ctents.
  28 And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his avenison: but bRebekah loved Jacob.
  29 ¶ And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:
  30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called aEdom.
  31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy abirthright.
  32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
  33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
  34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

Genesis 26:1-35

  1 And there was a afamine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto bAbimelech king of the cPhilistines unto Gerar.
  2 And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
  3 aSojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bbless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these ccountries, and I will perform the doath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
  4 And I will make thy aseed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the bnations of the earth be blessed;
  5 Because that Abraham aobeyed my voice, and kept my bcharge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
  6 ¶ And Isaac dwelt in aGerar:
  7 And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my asister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was bfair to look upon.
  8 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.
  9 And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife: and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.
  10 And aAbimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have blien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have cbrought guiltiness upon us.
  11 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.
  12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an ahundredfold: and the Lord bblessed him.
  13 aAnd the man waxed bgreat, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:
  14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines aenvied him.
  15 For all the awells which his father’s servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines bhad stopped them, and filled them with earth.
  16 And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much amightier than we.
  17 ¶ And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.
  18 And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their anames after the names by which his father had called them.
  19 And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.
  20 And the herdmen of Gerar did astrive with Isaac’s herdmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well bEsek; because they strove with him.
  21 And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it aSitnah.
  22 And he aremoved from thence, and digged another well; and for that they bstrove not: and he called the name of it cRehoboth; and he said, For now the Lord hath made room for us, and we shall be dfruitful in the land.
  23 And he went up from thence to aBeer-sheba.
  24 And the aLord appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: bfear not, for cI am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy dseed for my servant Abraham’s sake.
  25 And he builded an aaltar there, and called upon the bname of the Lord, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac’s servants digged a well.
  26 ¶ Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his friends, and aPhichol the chief captain of his army.
  27 And Isaac said unto them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing ye ahate me, and have sent me away from you?
  28 And they said, We saw certainly that the aLord was with thee: and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with thee;
  29 That thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in apeace: thou art now the bblessed of the Lord.
  30 And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.
  31 And they arose up betimes in the morning, and bsware one to another: and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.
  32 And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac’s servants came, and told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto him, We have found water.
  33 And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city is aBeer-sheba unto this day.
  34 ¶ And Esau was forty years old when he took to awife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite:
  35 Which were a agrief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.

Genesis 27:1-46

  1 And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were adim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.
  2 And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death:
  3 Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy aquiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and btake me some venison;
  4 And make me asavoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die.
  5 And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son. And Esau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.
  6 ¶ And aRebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying,
  7 Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless thee before the Lord before my death.
  8 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command thee.
  9 Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the goats; and I will make them savoury meat for thy father, such as he loveth:
  10 And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and that he may bless thee before his death.
  11 And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a ahairy man, and I am a smooth man:
  12 My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.
  13 And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son: only obey my voice, and go fetch me them.
  14 And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved.
  15 And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:
  16 And she put the askins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the smooth of his neck:
  17 And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.
  18 ¶ And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I; who art thou, my son?
  19 And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy firstborn; I have done according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my venison, that thy soul may bless me.
  20 And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the Lord thy God brought it to me.
  21 And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not.
  22 And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice is Jacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.
  23 And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his brother Esau’s hands: so he blessed him.
  24 And he said, Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am.
  25 And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son’s venison, that my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat: and he brought him wine, and he drank.
  26 And his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son.
  27 And he came anear, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and bblessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field which the Lord hath blessed:
  28 Therefore God give thee of the adew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:
  29 Let people aserve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother’s sons bbow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and cblessed be he that dblesseth thee.
  30 ¶ And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.
  31 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son’s venison, that thy soul may bless me.
  32 And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau.
  33 And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that hath ataken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou camest, and have bblessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed.
  34 And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father.
  35 And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy blessing.
  36 And he said, Is not he rightly named aJacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my bbirthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?
  37 And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for aservants; and with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?
  38 And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and awept.
  39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;
  40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy abrother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt bbreak his cyoke from off thy neck.
  41 ¶ And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.
  42 And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah: and she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him, Behold, thy brother Esau, as touching thee, doth comfort himself, purposing to kill thee.
  43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; and arise, aflee thou to Laban my bbrother to cHaran;
  44 And tarry with him a few days, until thy brother’s fury turn away;
  45 Until thy brother’s aanger turn away from thee, and he forget that which thou hast done to him: then I will send, and fetch thee from thence: why should I be deprived also of you both in one day?
  46 And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of the adaughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me?

Genesis 28:1-22

  1 And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a awife of the daughters of bCanaan.
  2 Arise, go to aPadan-aram, to the house of bBethuel thy mother’s father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of cLaban thy mother’s brother.
  3 And God aAlmighty bbless thee, and make thee cfruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a dmultitude of people;
  4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy aseed 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 Padan-aram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the aSyrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob’s and Esau’s mother.
  6 ¶ When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padan-aram, 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 Padan-aram;
  8 And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father;
  9 Then went Esau unto aIshmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham’s son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his bwife.
  10 ¶ And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, 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 adreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the bangels of God ascending and descending on it.
  13 And, behold, the aLord stood babove it, and said, I am the cLord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the dland 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 anorth, and to the south: and in thee and in thy bseed shall all the cfamilies of the earth be dblessed.
  15 And, behold, aI am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bbring thee again into this cland; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
  16 ¶ And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not.
  17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of aheaven.
  18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a apillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.
  19 And he called the name of that place aBeth-el: but the name of that city was called bLuz at the first.
  20 And Jacob vowed a avow, 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 raiment to put on,
  21 So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the aLord be my God:
  22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the atenth unto thee.

Genesis 29:1-35

  1 Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.
  2 And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, lo, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks: and a great stone was upon the well’s mouth.
  3 And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone again upon the well’s mouth in his place.
  4 And Jacob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? And they said, Of aHaran are we.
  5 And he said unto them, Know ye aLaban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him.
  6 And he said unto them, Is he well? And they said, He is well: and, behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.
  7 And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and feed them.
  8 And they said, We cannot, until all athe flocks be gathered together, and till they roll the stone from the well’s mouth; then we water the sheep.
  9 ¶ And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep: for she kept them.
  10 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and awatered the flock of Laban his mother’s brother.
  11 And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.
  12 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father’s brother, and that he was Rebekah’s son: and she ran and told her father.
  13 And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister’s son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.
  14 And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my aflesh. And he abode with him the space of a month.
  15 ¶ And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be?
  16 And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
  17 Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was abeautiful and well bfavoured.
  18 And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will aserve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.
  19 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.
  20 And Jacob served seven years for aRachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the blove he had to her.
  21 ¶ And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.
  22 And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a afeast.
  23 And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.
  24 And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah aZilpah his maid for an handmaid.
  25 And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?
  26 And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the afirstborn.
  27 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.
  28 And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.
  29 And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter aBilhah his handmaid to be her maid.
  30 And he went in also unto Rachel, and he aloved also Rachel more than Leah, and bserved with him yet seven other years.
  31 ¶ And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was abarren.
  32 And aLeah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name bReuben: for she said, Surely the Lord hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.
  33 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the Lord hath heard that I was ahated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name bSimeon.
  34 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called aLevi.
  35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I apraise the Lord: therefore she called his name bJudah; and left bearing.

Galatians 4:22-23

  22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a abondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
  23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.

1 Chronicles 5:1-2

  1 Now the sons of aReuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father’s bbed, his birthright was given unto the csons of dJoseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright.
  2 For aJudah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief bruler; but the cbirthright was Joseph’s:)

Genesis 48:17-20

  17 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right ahand upon the head of bEphraim, cit displeased him: and he held up his father’s hand, to remove it from Ephraim’s head unto Manasseh’s head.
  18 And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.
  19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be agreat: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his bseed shall become a cmultitude of dnations.
  20 And he blessed them that day, saying, aIn thee shall Israel bbless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set cEphraim before Manasseh.
