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.

創世記 35


1上帝對雅各說:「你到伯特利去住,你要在那裡為上帝築一座壇,祂在你逃避你哥哥以掃時曾向你顯現。」 於是,雅各吩咐家人和所有的隨從:「你們要除掉你們當中的外族神像,沐浴更衣,潔淨自己。 我們要上伯特利去,在那裡為上帝築一座壇,祂在我遭遇患難時聽了我的禱告,一路都與我同在。」 他們把所有外族的神像和自己的耳環都交給雅各,雅各把這些東西埋在示劍的橡樹下。

他們就出發了,上帝使恐懼籠罩周圍的城邑,沒有人敢追趕他們。 雅各和所有的隨從來到迦南的路斯,也就是伯特利。 他在那裡建造了一座壇,稱那地方為伊勒·伯特利[a],因為在他逃避哥哥的時候,上帝曾在那裡向他顯現。 後來利百加的奶媽底波拉死了,葬在伯特利山谷下面的橡樹下,那棵樹叫亞倫·巴古[b]

雅各從巴旦·亞蘭回來後,上帝又向他顯現,賜福給他。 10 上帝對他說:「你叫雅各,但從今以後不要再叫雅各了,你要改名叫以色列。」這樣雅各改名為以色列。 11 上帝又說:「我是全能的上帝,你要生養眾多,一國,甚至多國必從你而出,許多君王必出自你的子孫。 12 我要把賜給亞伯拉罕和以撒的土地賜給你和你的後代。」 13 上帝說完就離開雅各升上天去。 14 雅各在上帝跟他說話的地方立了一根石柱,又在柱子上奠酒、澆油, 15 稱那地方為伯特利。


16 他們從伯特利繼續前行,離以法他還有一段路時,拉結難產。 17 在難產的痛苦中,接生婆對她說:「不要害怕,你又添了一個兒子!」 18 拉結臨死前給兒子取名叫便·俄尼[c],雅各卻叫他便雅憫[d] 19 拉結死後就葬在通往以法他的路旁,以法他即伯利恆。 20 雅各在她的墳上立了石碑,至今還在。 21 以色列繼續前行,在以得塔附近搭起了帳篷。 22 以色列在那裡居住時,呂便和父親的妾辟拉通姦,以色列也知道這件事。

雅各有十二個兒子。 23 利亞生了雅各的長子呂便、西緬、利未、猶大、以薩迦和西布倫。 24 拉結生了約瑟和便雅憫。 25 拉結的婢女辟拉生了但和拿弗他利。 26 利亞的婢女悉帕生了迦得和亞設。他們都是雅各的兒子,是在巴旦·亞蘭出生的。

27 雅各來到他父親以撒住的幔利,即基列·亞巴,也就是亞伯拉罕和以撒寄居的地方。基列·亞巴就是希伯崙。 28 以撒共活了一百八十歲, 29 年紀老邁,壽終正寢。他的兒子以掃和雅各把他安葬了。
