Genesis 28
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Isaaq called Yaquuv and blessed him and he commanded him and said to him, “Do not take a woman from the daughters of Canaan. 2Arise, go to Padan d'Aram to the house of Bethuyel, the father of your mother, and take for yourself from there a woman from the daughters of Laban, the brother of your mother. 3And God Almighty will bless you and will increase you and multiply you, and you shall be a multitude of peoples; 4And he will give to you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your seed with you, and he shall cause you to inherit the land of your habitation that God gave to Abraham.” 5And Isaaq sent Yaquuv and he went on to Paran d'Aram to Laban, son of Bethuyel the Aramaean, the brother of Raphqa, the mother of Yaquuv and of Esau.

6And Esau saw that Isaaq blessed Yaquuv his brother and sent him to Paran d'Aram to take to himself from there a wife when he blessed him and commanded him and said to him, “Do not take a woman from the daughters of Canaan”; 7And Yaquuv listened to his father and to his mother and he went on to Padan d'Aram; 8And Esau saw that the daughters of Canaan were evil in the eyes of Isaaq his father; 9And Esau went on to Ishmayl and he took Besmath, daughter of Ishmayl, son of Abraham, the sister of Nebiuth, in addition to his wives, as a wife for himself.

10And Yaquuv went out from Beersheba to go to Kharan. 11And he arrived in the place and he spent the night there because the sun had set, and he took from the stones of the place and laid his pillow and slept in that place. 12And he saw in a dream, and behold, a staircase set up on the earth, and the top met Heaven, and behold, the Angels of God were going up and coming down on it. 13And behold LORD JEHOVAH was standing above it, and LORD JEHOVAH said: “I AM the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac; the land upon which you lie I shall give to you and to your seed; 14And your seed will be as the dust of the Earth and you will multiply to the East and to the West and to the North and to the South, and in you and in your seed all the generations of the Earth will be blessed. 15And see, I am with you and I shall keep you wherever you will go, and I shall return you to this land and I shall not leave you until I shall do whatever I have said to you.” 16And Yaquuv was awakened from his sleep and he said, “Truly, LORD JEHOVAH is in this place and I not have known.” 17And Yaquuv feared a great fear and said, “How awesome is this place today! This is nothing but the house of God and this is the gate of Heaven!”

18And Yaquuv arose at dawn and he took the stone that he had set as his pillow and he made it a monument and he poured oil on its top. 19And Yaquuv called the name of that place Bayth Eil, however, Luz was the name of that region from the first. 20And Yaquuv vowed a vow and said, “If God will be with me and he will keep me in this way in which I go, and he will give to me bread to eat and clothes to wear, 21And I shall return in peace to the house of my father, LORD JEHOVAH shall be God to me, 22And this stone that I have made a monument will be the house of God, and a tenth of all that you give to me I shall give as a tithe to you.”
