Genesis 35


1  And God430 said559 unto413 Jacob,3290 Arise,6965 go up5927 to Bethel,1008 and dwell3427 there:8033 and make6213 there8033 an altar4196 unto God,410 that appeared7200 unto413 thee when thou fleddest1272 from the face4480 6440 of Esau6215 thy brother.251

2  Then Jacob3290 said559 unto413 his household,1004 and to413 all3605 that834 were with5973 him, Put away5493 853 the strange5236 gods430 that834 are among8432 you, and be clean,2891 and change2498 your garments:8071

3  And let us arise,6965 and go up5927 to Bethel;1008 and I will make6213 there8033 an altar4196 unto God,410 who answered6030 me in the day3117 of my distress,6869 and was1961 with5973 me in the way1870 which834 I went.1980

4  And they gave5414 unto413 Jacob3290 853 all3605 the strange5236 gods430 which834 were in their hand,3027 and all their earrings5141 which834 were in their ears;241 and Jacob3290 hid2934 them under8478 the oak424 which834 was by5973 Shechem.7927

5  And they journeyed:5265 and the terror2847 of God430 was1961 upon5921 the cities5892 that834 were round about5439 them, and they did not3808 pursue7291 after310 the sons1121 of Jacob.3290

6  So Jacob3290 came935 to Luz,3870 which834 is in the land776 of Canaan,3667 that1931 is, Bethel,1008 he1931 and all3605 the people5971 that834 were with5973 him.

7  And he built1129 there8033 an altar,4196 and called7121 the place4725 El-bethel:416 because3588 there8033 God430 appeared1540 unto413 him, when he fled1272 from the face4480 6440 of his brother.251

8  But Deborah1683 Rebekah's7259 nurse3243 died,4191 and she was buried6912 beneath4480 8478 Bethel1008 under8478 an oak:437 and the name8034 of it was called7121 Allon-bachuth.439

9  And God430 appeared7200 unto413 Jacob3290 again,5750 when he came935 out of Padan-aram,4480 6307 and blessed1288 him.

10  And God430 said559 unto him, Thy name8034 is Jacob:3290 thy name8034 shall not3808 be called7121 any more5750 Jacob,3290 but3588 518 Israel3478 shall be1961 thy name:8034 and he called7121 853 his name8034 Israel.3478

11  And God430 said559 unto him, I589 am God410 Almighty:7706 be fruitful6509 and multiply;7235 a nation1471 and a company6951 of nations1471 shall be1961 of4480 thee, and kings4428 shall come out3318 of thy loins;4480 2504

12  And the land776 which834 I gave5414 Abraham85 and Isaac,3327 to thee I will give5414 it, and to thy seed2233 after310 thee will I give5414 853 the land.776

13  And God430 went up5927 from4480 5921 him in the place4725 where834 he talked1696 with854 him.

14  And Jacob3290 set up5324 a pillar4676 in the place4725 where834 he talked1696 with854 him, even a pillar4678 of stone:68 and he poured5258 a drink offering5262 thereon,5921 and he poured3332 oil8081 thereon.5921

15  And Jacob3290 called7121 853 the name8034 of the place4725 where834 God430 spoke1696 with854 him, Bethel.1008

16  And they journeyed5265 from Bethel;4480 1008 and there was1961 but5750 a little way3530 776 to come935 to Ephrath:672 and Rachel7354 travailed,3205 and she had hard7185 labor.3205

17  And it came to pass,1961 when she was in hard7185 labor,3205 that the midwife3205 said559 unto her, Fear3372 not;408 thou shalt have this2088 son1121 also.1571

18  And it came to pass,1961 as her soul5315 was in departing,3318 (for3588 she died)4191 that she called7121 his name8034 Ben-oni:1126 but his father1 called7121 him Benjamin.1144

19  And Rachel7354 died,4191 and was buried6912 in the way1870 to Ephrath,672 which1931 is Bethlehem.1035

20  And Jacob3290 set5324 a pillar4676 upon5921 her grave:6900 that1931 is the pillar4678 of Rachel's7354 grave6900 unto5704 this day.3117

21  And Israel3478 journeyed,5265 and spread5186 his tent168 beyond4480 1973 the tower4026 of Edar.4029

22  And it came to pass,1961 when Israel3478 dwelt7931 in that1931 land,776 that Reuben7205 went1980 and lay with7901 853 Bilhah1090 his father's1 concubine:6370 and Israel3478 heard8085 it. Now the sons1121 of Jacob3290 were1961 twelve:8147 6240

23  The sons1121 of Leah;3812 Reuben,7205 Jacob's3290 firstborn,1060 and Simeon,8095 and Levi,3878 and Judah,3063 and Issachar,3485 and Zebulun:2074

24  The sons1121 of Rachel;7354 Joseph,3130 and Benjamin:1144

25  And the sons1121 of Bilhah,1090 Rachel's7354 handmaid;8198 Dan,1835 and Naphtali:5321

26  And the sons1121 of Zilpah,2153 Leah's3812 handmaid;8198 Gad,1410 and Asher:836 these428 are the sons1121 of Jacob,3290 which834 were born3205 to him in Padan-aram.6307

27  And Jacob3290 came935 unto413 Isaac3327 his father1 unto Mamre,4471 unto the city of Arbah,7153 which1931 is Hebron,2275 where834 8033 Abraham85 and Isaac3327 sojourned.1481

28  And the days3117 of Isaac3327 were1961 a hundred3967 and fourscore8084 years.8141

29  And Isaac3327 gave up the ghost,1478 and died,4191 and was gathered622 unto413 his people,5971 being old2205 and full7649 of days:3117 and his sons1121 Esau6215 and Jacob3290 buried6912 him.


1 εἶπεν δὲ ὁ θεὸς πρὸς Ιακωβ ἀναστὰς ἀνάβηθι εἰς τὸν τόπον Βαιθηλ καὶ οἴκει ἐκεῖ καὶ ποίησον ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον τῷ θεῷ τῷ ὀφθέντι σοι ἐν τῷ ἀποδιδράσκειν σε ἀπὸ προσώπου Ησαυ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου

2 εἶπεν δὲ Ιακωβ τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἄρατε τοὺς θεοὺς τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους τοὺς μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν ἐκ μέσου ὑμῶν καὶ καθαρίσασθε καὶ ἀλλάξατε τὰς στολὰς ὑμῶν

3 καὶ ἀναστάντες ἀναβῶμεν εἰς Βαιθηλ καὶ ποιήσωμεν ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον τῷ θεῷ τῷ ἐπακούσαντί μοι ἐν ἡμέρᾳ θλίψεως ὃς ἦν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ διέσωσέν με ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ ᾗ ἐπορεύθην

4 καὶ ἔδωκαν τῷ Ιακωβ τοὺς θεοὺς τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους οἳ ἦσαν ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ ἐνώτια τὰ ἐν τοῖς ὠσὶν αὐτῶν καὶ κατέκρυψεν αὐτὰ Ιακωβ ὑπὸ τὴν τερέμινθον τὴν ἐν Σικιμοις καὶ ἀπώλεσεν αὐτὰ ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας

5 καὶ ἐξῆρεν Ισραηλ ἐκ Σικιμων καὶ ἐγένετο φόβος θεοῦ ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις τὰς κύκλῳ αὐτῶν καὶ οὐ κατεδίωξαν ὀπίσω τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ

6 ἦλθεν δὲ Ιακωβ εἰς Λουζα ἥ ἐστιν ἐν γῇ Χανααν ἥ ἐστιν Βαιθηλ αὐτὸς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαός ὃς ἦν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ

7 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου Βαιθηλ ἐκεῖ γὰρ ἐπεφάνη αὐτῷ ὁ θεὸς ἐν τῷ ἀποδιδράσκειν αὐτὸν ἀπὸ προσώπου Ησαυ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ

8 ἀπέθανεν δὲ Δεββωρα ἡ τροφὸς Ρεβεκκας κατώτερον Βαιθηλ ὑπὸ τὴν βάλανον καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Ιακωβ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῆς Βάλανος πένθους

9 ὤφθη δὲ ὁ θεὸς Ιακωβ ἔτι ἐν Λουζα ὅτε παρεγένετο ἐκ Μεσοποταμίας τῆς Συρίας καὶ ηὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν ὁ θεός

10 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ θεός τὸ ὄνομά σου Ιακωβ οὐ κληθήσεται ἔτι Ιακωβ ἀλλ᾽ Ισραηλ ἔσται τὸ ὄνομά σου

11 εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ ὁ θεός ἐγὼ ὁ θεός σου αὐξάνου καὶ πληθύνου ἔθνη καὶ συναγωγαὶ ἐθνῶν ἔσονται ἐκ σοῦ καὶ βασιλεῖς ἐκ τῆς ὀσφύος σου ἐξελεύσονται

12 καὶ τὴν γῆν ἣν δέδωκα Αβρααμ καὶ Ισαακ σοὶ δέδωκα αὐτήν σοὶ ἔσται καὶ τῷ σπέρματί σου μετὰ σὲ δώσω τὴν γῆν ταύτην

13 ἀνέβη δὲ ὁ θεὸς ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐκ τοῦ τόπου οὗ ἐλάλησεν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ

14 καὶ ἔστησεν Ιακωβ στήλην ἐν τῷ τόπῳ ᾧ ἐλάλησεν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ στήλην λιθίνην καὶ ἔσπεισεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὴν σπονδὴν καὶ ἐπέχεεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὴν ἔλαιον

15 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Ιακωβ τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐν ᾧ ἐλάλησεν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐκεῖ ὁ θεός Βαιθηλ

16 ἀπάρας δὲ Ιακωβ ἐκ Βαιθηλ ἔπηξεν τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ ἐπέκεινα τοῦ πύργου Γαδερ ἐγένετο δὲ ἡνίκα ἤγγισεν Χαβραθα εἰς γῆν ἐλθεῖν Εφραθα ἔτεκεν Ραχηλ καὶ ἐδυστόκησεν ἐν τῷ τοκετῷ

17 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ σκληρῶς αὐτὴν τίκτειν εἶπεν αὐτῇ ἡ μαῖα θάρσει καὶ γὰρ οὗτός σοί ἐστιν υἱός

18 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ ἀφιέναι αὐτὴν τὴν ψυχήν ἀπέθνῃσκεν γάρ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Υἱὸς ὀδύνης μου ὁ δὲ πατὴρ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὸν Βενιαμιν

19 ἀπέθανεν δὲ Ραχηλ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ Εφραθα αὕτη ἐστὶν Βηθλεεμ

20 καὶ ἔστησεν Ιακωβ στήλην ἐπὶ τοῦ μνημείου αὐτῆς αὕτη ἐστὶν στήλη μνημείου Ραχηλ ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας

22 ἐγένετο δὲ ἡνίκα κατῴκησεν Ισραηλ ἐν τῇ γῇ ἐκείνῃ ἐπορεύθη Ρουβην καὶ ἐκοιμήθη μετὰ Βαλλας τῆς παλλακῆς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἤκουσεν Ισραηλ καὶ πονηρὸν ἐφάνη ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ ἦσαν δὲ οἱ υἱοὶ Ιακωβ δώδεκα

23 υἱοὶ Λειας πρωτότοκος Ιακωβ Ρουβην Συμεων Λευι Ιουδας Ισσαχαρ Ζαβουλων

24 υἱοὶ δὲ Ραχηλ Ιωσηφ καὶ Βενιαμιν

25 υἱοὶ δὲ Βαλλας παιδίσκης Ραχηλ Δαν καὶ Νεφθαλι

26 υἱοὶ δὲ Ζελφας παιδίσκης Λειας Γαδ καὶ Ασηρ οὗτοι υἱοὶ Ιακωβ οἳ ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ ἐν Μεσοποταμίᾳ τῆς Συρίας

27 ἦλθεν δὲ Ιακωβ πρὸς Ισαακ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ εἰς Μαμβρη εἰς πόλιν τοῦ πεδίου αὕτη ἐστὶν Χεβρων ἐν γῇ Χανααν οὗ παρῴκησεν Αβρααμ καὶ Ισαακ

28 ἐγένοντο δὲ αἱ ἡμέραι Ισαακ ἃς ἔζησεν ἔτη ἑκατὸν ὀγδοήκοντα

29 καὶ ἐκλιπὼν ἀπέθανεν καὶ προσετέθη πρὸς τὸ γένος αὐτοῦ πρεσβύτερος καὶ πλήρης ἡμερῶν καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν Ησαυ καὶ Ιακωβ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ

1 Interea locutus est Deus ad Jacob: Surge, et ascende Bethel, et habita ibi, facque altare Deo qui apparuit tibi quando fugiebas Esau fratrem tuum.

2 Jacob vero convocata omni domo sua, ait: Abjicite deos alienos qui in medio vestri sunt, et mundamini, ac mutate vestimenta vestra.

3 Surgite, et ascendamus in Bethel, ut faciamus ibi altare Deo: qui exaudivit me in die tribulationis meæ, et socius fuit itineris mei.

4 Dederunt ergo ei omnes deos alienos quos habebant, et inaures quæ erant in auribus eorum: at ille infodit ea subter terebinthum, quæ est post urbem Sichem.

5 Cumque profecti essent, terror Dei invasit omnes per circuitum civitates, et non sunt ausi persequi recedentes.

6 Venit igitur Jacob Luzam, quæ est in terra Chanaan, cognomento Bethel: ipse et omnis populus cum eo.

7 Ædificavitque ibi altare, et appellavit nomen loci illius, Domus Dei: ibi enim apparuit ei Deus cum fugeret fratrem suum.

8 Eodem tempore mortua est Debora nutrix Rebeccæ, et sepulta est ad radices Bethel subter quercum: vocatumque est nomen loci illius, Quercus fletus.

9 Apparuit autem iterum Deus Jacob postquam reversus est de Mespotamia Syriæ, benedixitque ei

10 dicens: Non vocaberis ultra Jacob, sed Israël erit nomen tuum. Et appellavit eum Israël,

11 dixitque ei: Ego Deus omnipotens: cresce, et multiplicare: gentes et populi nationum ex te erunt, reges de lumbis tuis egredientur,

12 terramque quam dedi Abraham et Isaac, dabo tibi et semini tuo post te.

13 Et recessit ab eo.

14 Ille vero erexit titulum lapideum in loco quo locutus fuerat ei Deus: libans super eum libamina, et effundens oleum:

15 vocansque nomen loci illius Bethel.

16 Egressus autem inde, venit verno tempore ad terram quæ ducit Ephratam: in qua cum parturiret Rachel,

17 ob difficultatem partus periclitari cœpit. Dixitque ei obstetrix: Noli timere, quia et hunc habebis filium.

18 Egrediente autem anima præ dolore, et imminente jam morte, vocavit nomen filii sui Benomi, id est, Filius doloris mei: pater vero appellavit eum Benjamin, id est, Filius dextræ.

19 Mortua est ergo Rachel, et sepulta est in via quæ ducit Ephratam, hæc est Bethlehem.

20 Erexitque Jacob titulum super sepulchrum ejus: hic est titulus monumenti Rachel, usque in præsentem diem.

21 Egressus inde, fixit tabernaculum trans Turrem gregis.

22 Cumque habitaret in illa regione, abiit Ruben, et dormivit cum Bala concubina patris sui: quod illum minime latuit. Erant autem filii Jacob duodecim.

23 Filii Liæ: primogenitus Ruben, et Simeon, et Levi, et Judas, et Issachar, et Zabulon.

24 Filii Rachel: Joseph et Benjamin.

25 Filii Balæ ancillæ Rachelis: Dan et Nephthali.

26 Filii Zelphæ ancillæ Liæ: Gad et Aser: hi sunt filii Jacob, qui nati sunt ei in Mesopotamia Syriæ.

27 Venit etiam ad Isaac patrem suum in Mambre, civitatem Arbee, hæc est Hebron, in qua peregrinatus est Abraham et Isaac.

28 Et completi sunt dies Isaac centum octoginta annorum.

29 Consumptusque ætate mortuus est: et appositus est populo suo senex et plenus dierum: et sepelierunt eum Esau et Jacob filii sui.
