创世记 35:1-29

雅各迁往伯特利

1上帝对雅各说:“你到伯特利去住,你要在那里为上帝筑一座坛,祂在你逃避你哥哥以扫时曾向你显现。” 2于是,雅各吩咐家人和所有的随从:“你们要除掉你们当中的外族神像,沐浴更衣,洁净自己。 3我们要上伯特利去,在那里为上帝筑一座坛,祂在我遭遇患难时听了我的祷告,一路都与我同在。” 4他们把所有外族的神像和自己的耳环都交给雅各雅各把这些东西埋在示剑的橡树下。

5他们就出发了,上帝使恐惧笼罩周围的城邑,没有人敢追赶他们。 6雅各和所有的随从来到迦南路斯,也就是伯特利7他在那里建造了一座坛,称那地方为伊勒·伯特利35:7 伊勒·伯特利”意思是“伯特利的上帝”。,因为在他逃避哥哥的时候,上帝曾在那里向他显现。 8后来利百加的奶妈底波拉死了,葬在伯特利山谷下面的橡树下,那棵树叫亚伦·巴古35:8 亚伦·巴古”意思是“哭泣的橡树”。

9雅各巴旦·亚兰回来后,上帝又向他显现,赐福给他。 10上帝对他说:“你叫雅各,但从今以后不要再叫雅各了,你要改名叫以色列。”这样雅各改名为以色列11上帝又说:“我是全能的上帝,你要生养众多,一国,甚至多国必从你而出,许多君王必出自你的子孙。 12我要把赐给亚伯拉罕以撒的土地赐给你和你的后代。” 13上帝说完就离开雅各升上天去。 14雅各在上帝跟他说话的地方立了一根石柱,又在柱子上奠酒、浇油, 15称那地方为伯特利

拉结和以撒去世

16他们从伯特利继续前行,离以法他还有一段路时,拉结难产。 17在难产的痛苦中,接生婆对她说:“不要害怕,你又添了一个儿子!” 18拉结临死前给儿子取名叫便·俄尼35:18 便·俄尼”意思是“我在苦难中生的儿子”。雅各却叫他便雅悯35:18 便雅悯”意思是“右手之子”,“右手”希伯来文有幸运或力量的意思。19拉结死后就葬在通往以法他的路旁,以法他伯利恒20雅各在她的坟上立了石碑,至今还在。 21以色列继续前行,在以得塔附近搭起了帐篷。 22以色列在那里居住时,吕便和父亲的妾辟拉通奸,以色列也知道这件事。

雅各有十二个儿子。 23利亚生了雅各的长子吕便西缅利未犹大以萨迦西布伦24拉结生了约瑟便雅悯25拉结的婢女辟拉生了拿弗他利26利亚的婢女悉帕生了迦得亚设。他们都是雅各的儿子,是在巴旦·亚兰出生的。

27雅各来到他父亲以撒住的幔利,即基列·亚巴,也就是亚伯拉罕以撒寄居的地方。基列·亚巴就是希伯仑28以撒共活了一百八十岁, 29年纪老迈,寿终正寝。他的儿子以扫雅各把他安葬了。

King James Version

Genesis 35:1-29

1And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother. 2Then 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: 3And let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; 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. 4And 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. 5And 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, Beth-el, he and all the people that were with him. 7And he built there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el: because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.35.7 El-beth-el: that is, The God of Beth-el 8But Deborah Rebekah’s nurse died, and she was buried beneath Beth-el under an oak: and the name of it was called Allon-bachuth.35.8 Allon-bachuth: that is, The oak of weeping

9¶ And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padan-aram, and blessed him. 10And 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. 11And 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; 12And 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. 13And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him. 14And 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. 15And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Beth-el.

16¶ And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.35.16 a little…: Heb. a little piece of ground 17And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also. 18And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Ben-oni: but his father called him Benjamin.35.18 Ben-oni: that is, The son of my sorrow35.18 Benjamin: that is, The son of the right hand 19And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Beth-lehem. 20And 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. 22And 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: 23The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun: 24The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin: 25And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali: 26And the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s handmaid; Gad, and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padan-aram.

27¶ And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned. 28And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years. 29And 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.
