1 Vocavit itaque Isaac Iacob et benedixit eum praecepit que ei dicens: "Noli accipere coniugem de filiabus Chanaan;
2 surge, vade in Paddanaram ad domum Bathuel patris matris tuae et accipe tibi inde uxorem de filiabus Laban avunculi tui.
3 Deus autem omnipotens benedicat tibi et crescere te faciat atque multiplicet, ut sis in multitudinem populorum;
4 et det tibi benedictiones Abraham tibi et semini tuo tecum, ut possideas terram peregrinationis tuae, quam pollicitus est Deus avo tuo"
5 Cumque dimisisset eum Isaac, profectus est in Paddanaram ad Laban filium Bathuel Aramaei fratrem Rebeccae matris Iacob et Esau.
6 Videns autem Esau quod benedixisset pater suus Iacob et misisset eum in Paddanaram, ut inde uxorem duceret, et quod post benedictionem praecepisset ei dicens: "Non accipies uxorem de filiabus Chanaan"
7 quodque oboediens Iacob parentibus suis isset in Paddanaram;
8 probans quoque quod non libenter aspiceret filias Chanaan pater suus,
9 ivit ad Ismaelem et duxit uxorem, absque iis, quas habebat, Mahalath filiam Ismael filii Abraham sororem Nabaioth.
10 Igitur egressus Iacob de Bersabee pergebat Charran.
11 Cumque venisset ad quendam locum et vellet in eo requiescere post solis occubitum, tulit de lapidibus, qui iacebant, et supponens capiti suo dormivit in eodem loco.
12 Viditque in somnio scalam stantem super terram et cacumen illius tangens caelum, angelos quoque Dei ascendentes et descendentes per eam
13 et Dominum innixum scalae dicentem sibi: "Ego sum Dominus, Deus Abraham patris tui et Deus Isaac. Terram, in qua dormis, tibi dabo et semini tuo.
14 Eritque semen tuum quasi pulvis terrae; dilataberis ad occidentem et orientem et septentrionem et meridiem; et benedicentur in te et in semine tuo cunctae tribus terrae.
15 Et ecce, ego tecum sum et custodiam te, quocumque perrexeris, et reducam te in terram hanc; nec dimittam te, nisi complevero quae dixi tibi"
16 Cumque evigilasset Iacob de somno, ait: "Vere Dominus est in loco isto, et ego nesciebam"
17 Pavensque: "Quam terribilis est, inquit, locus iste! Non est hic aliud nisi domus Dei et porta caeli"
18 Surgens ergo Iacob mane tulit lapidem, quem supposuerat capiti suo, et erexit in titulum fundens oleum desuper.
19 Appellavitque nomen loci illius Bethel; prius autem urbs vocabatur Luza.
20 Vovit Iacob etiam votum dicens: "Si fuerit Deus mecum et custodierit me in via hac, per quam ambulo, et dederit mihi panem ad vescendum et vestimentum ad induendum,
21 reversusque fuero prospere ad domum patris mei, erit mihi Dominus in Deum,
22 et lapis iste, quem erexi in titulum, erit domus Dei; cunctorumque, quae dederis mihi, decimas offeram tibi -
King James Version
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 Padan-aram, 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 Padan-aram 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 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 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.
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 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.
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 heaven.
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 pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.
19 And he called the name of that place Beth-el: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.
20 And 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 raiment to put on,
21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD 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 tenth unto thee.
