Genesis - Chapter 35
2 Jacob said to his family and to all who were with him, 'Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you; cleanse yourselves, and change your clothes.
3 We must move on and go to Bethel. There I shall make an altar for the God who heard me when I was in distress, and gave me his help on the journey I made.'
6 When Jacob arrived at Luz in Canaan -- that is, Bethel-and all the people with him,
7 he built an altar there and named the place El-Bethel, since it was there that God had appeared to him when he was fleeing from his brother.
9 God again appeared to Jacob on his return from Paddan-Aram, and blessed him.
12 The country which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, I now give to you; and this country I shall give to your descendants after you.'
13 Then God went up from him.
16 They left Bethel, and while they were still some distance from Ephrath, Rachel went into labour, and her pains were severe.
19 So Rachel died and was buried on the road to Ephrath, now Bethlehem.
20 Jacob raised a monument on her grave, that same monument of Rachel's Tomb which is there today.
23 The sons of Leah: Jacob's eldest son Reuben, then Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar and Zebulun.
24 The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.
25 The sons of Bilhah, Rachel's slave-girl: Dan and Naphtali.
