Gen 35:1-37:11

 Ge 35:1 And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.
 2 Then Jacob said unto 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:
 3 And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.
 4 And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which [were] in their hand, and [all their] earrings which [were] in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which [was] by Shechem.
 5 And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that [were] round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.
 6 So Jacob came to Luz, which [is] in the land of Canaan, that [is], Bethel, he and all the people that [were] with him.
 7 And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel: because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.
 8 But Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried beneath Bethel under an oak: and the name of it was called Allonbachuth.
 9 And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him.
 10 And God said unto 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.
 11 And God said unto him, I [am] God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins;
 12 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.
 13 And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him.
 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.
 15 And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel.
 16 And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.
 17 And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.
 18 And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.
 19 And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which [is] Bethlehem.
 20 And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that [is] the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day.
 21 And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.
 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:
 23 The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:
 24 The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:
 25 And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:
 26 And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid; Gad, and Asher: these [are] the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padanaram.
 27 And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of Arbah, which [is] Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.
 28 And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years.
 29 And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, [being] old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
 36:1 Now these [are] the generations of Esau, who [is] Edom.
 2 Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite;
 3 And Bashemath Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebajoth.
 4 And Adah bare to Esau Eliphaz; and Bashemath bare Reuel;
 5 And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these [are] the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.
 6 And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob.
 7 For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their cattle.
 8 Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau [is] Edom.
 9 And these [are] the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Seir:
 10 These [are] the names of Esau's sons; Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reuel the son of Bashemath the wife of Esau.
 11 And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and Kenaz.
 12 And Timna was concubine to Eliphaz Esau's son; and she bare to Eliphaz Amalek: these [were] the sons of Adah Esau's wife.
 13 And these [are] the sons of Reuel; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah: these were the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.
 14 And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon, Esau's wife: and she bare to Esau Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah.
 15 These [were] dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn [son] of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz,
 16 Duke Korah, duke Gatam, [and] duke Amalek: these [are] the dukes [that came] of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these [were] the sons of Adah.
 17 And these [are] the sons of Reuel Esau's son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these [are] the dukes [that came] of Reuel in the land of Edom; these [are] the sons of Bashemath Esau's wife.
 18 And these [are] the sons of Aholibamah Esau's wife; duke Jeush, duke Jaalam, duke Korah: these [were] the dukes [that came] of Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife.
 19 These [are] the sons of Esau, who [is] Edom, and these [are] their dukes.
 20 These [are] the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah,
 21 And Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these [are] the dukes of the Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom.
 22 And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan's sister [was] Timna.
 23 And the children of Shobal [were] these; Alvan, and Manahath, and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
 24 And these [are] the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah: this [was that] Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father.
 25 And the children of Anah [were] these; Dishon, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah.
 26 And these [are] the children of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Cheran.
 27 The children of Ezer [are] these; Bilhan, and Zaavan, and Akan.
 28 The children of Dishan [are] these; Uz, and Aran.
 29 These [are] the dukes [that came] of the Horites; duke Lotan, duke Shobal, duke Zibeon, duke Anah,
 30 Duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan: these [are] the dukes [that came] of Hori, among their dukes in the land of Seir.
 31 And these [are] the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel.
 32 And Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom: and the name of his city [was] Dinhabah.
 33 And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead.
 34 And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Temani reigned in his stead.
 35 And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city [was] Avith.
 36 And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.
 37 And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth [by] the river reigned in his stead.
 38 And Saul died, and Baalhanan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead.
 39 And Baalhanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead: and the name of his city [was] Pau; and his wife's name [was] Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.
 40 And these [are] the names of the dukes [that came] of Esau, according to their families, after their places, by their names; duke Timnah, duke Alvah, duke Jetheth,
 41 Duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,
 42 Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,
 43 Duke Magdiel, duke Iram: these [be] the dukes of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession: he [is] Esau the father of the Edomites.
 37:1 And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.
 2 These [are] the generations of Jacob. Joseph, [being] seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad [was] with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.
 3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he [was] the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of [many] colours.
 4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
 5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told [it] his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
 6 And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:
 7 For, behold, we [were] binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
 8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
 9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
 10 And he told [it] to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What [is] this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
 11 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
