Genesis 35

Jacob Moves to Bethel

1Then God said to Jacob, “Arise, go up to Bethel and [a]live there, and make an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you fled [b]from your brother Esau.” So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Put away the foreign gods which are among you, and purify yourselves and change your garments; and let us arise and go up to Bethel, and I will make an altar there to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and has been with me [c]wherever I have gone.” So they gave to Jacob all the foreign gods which [d]they had and the rings which were in their ears, and Jacob hid them under the [e]oak which was near Shechem.

As they journeyed, there was [f]a great terror upon the cities which were around them, and they did not pursue the sons of Jacob. So Jacob came to Luz (that is, Bethel), which is in the land of Canaan, he and all the people who were with him. He built an altar there, and called the place [g]El-bethel, because there God had revealed Himself to him when he fled [h]from his brother. Now Deborah, Rebekah’s nurse, died, and she was buried below Bethel under the oak; it was named [i]Allon-bacuth.

Jacob Is Named Israel

Then God appeared to Jacob again when he came from Paddan-aram, and He blessed him. 10 God said to him,

“Your name is Jacob;
[j]You shall no longer be called Jacob,
But Israel shall be your name.”

Thus He called [k]him Israel. 11 God also said to him,

“I am [l]God Almighty;
Be fruitful and multiply;
A nation and a company of nations shall [m]come from you,
And kings shall [n]come forth from [o]you.
12 “The land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac,
I will give it to you,
And I will give the land to your [p]descendants after you.”

13 Then God went up from him in the place where He had spoken with him. 14 Jacob set up a pillar in the place where He had spoken with him, a pillar of stone, and he poured out a drink offering on it; he also poured oil on it. 15 So Jacob named the place where God had spoken with him, [q]Bethel.

16 Then they journeyed from Bethel; and when there was still some distance to go to Ephrath, Rachel began to give birth and she [r]suffered severe labor. 17 When she was in severe labor the midwife said to her, “Do not fear, for now you have another son.” 18 It came about as her soul was departing (for she died), that she named him [s]Ben-oni; but his father called him [t]Benjamin. 19 So Rachel died and was buried on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem). 20 Jacob set up a pillar over her grave; that is the pillar of Rachel’s grave to this day. 21 Then Israel journeyed on and pitched his tent beyond the [u]tower of [v]Eder.

22 It came about while Israel was dwelling in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father’s concubine, and Israel heard of it.

The Sons of Israel

Now there were twelve sons of Jacob— 23 the sons of Leah: Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn, then 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 maid: Dan and Naphtali; 26 and the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s maid: Gad and Asher. These are the sons of Jacob who were born to him in Paddan-aram.

27 Jacob came to his father Isaac at Mamre of Kiriath-arba (that is, Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had sojourned.

28 Now the days of Isaac were one hundred and eighty years. 29 Isaac breathed his last and died and was gathered to his people, an old man [w]of ripe age; and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

创世记 35

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。” 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。 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。” 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。

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。 雅各和所有的随从来到迦南的路斯,也就是伯特利。 他在那里建造了一座坛,称那地方为伊勒·伯特利[a],因为在他逃避哥哥的时候,上帝曾在那里向他显现。 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[b]

雅各从巴旦·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和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[c],雅各却叫他便雅悯[d] 19 拉结死后就葬在通往以法他的路旁,以法他即伯利恒。 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、以萨迦和西布伦。 24 拉结生了约瑟和便雅悯。 25 拉结的婢女辟拉生了但和拿弗他利。 26 利亚的婢女悉帕生了迦得和亚设。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,也就是亚伯拉罕和以撒寄居的地方。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。他的儿子以扫和雅各把他安葬了。
