katapi HOME Genesis 28:10-22 - JACOB: Bethel - Jacob's dream.  Gn.28.10-22

28 10 Jacob set out from Beersheba and went on his way towards Harran. 28 11 He came to a certain place and stopped there for the night, because the sun had set; and, taking one of the stones there, he made it a pillow for his head and lay down to sleep. 28 12 He dreamt that he saw a ladder, which rested on the ground with its top reaching to heaven, and angels of God were going up and down upon it. 28 13 The LORD was standing beside him Or on it or by it and said, 'I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. This land on which you are lying I will give to you and your descendants. 28 14 They shall be countless as the dust upon the earth, and you shall spread far and wide, to north and south, to east and west. All the families of the earth shall pray to be blessed as you and your descendants are blessed. 28 15 I will be with you, and I will protect you wherever you go and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done all that I have promised.' 28 16 Jacob woke from his sleep and said, 'Truly the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.' 28 17 Then he was afraid and said, 'How fearsome is this place! This is no other than the house of God, this is the gate of heaven.'

28 18 Jacob rose early in the morning, took the stone on which he had laid his head, set it up as a sacred pillar and poured oil on the top of it. 28 19 He named that place Beth-El That is House of God; but the earlier name of the city was Luz. 28 20 Thereupon Jacob made this vow: 'If God will be with me, if he will protect me on my journey and give me food to eat and clothes to wear, 28 21 and I come back safely to my father's house, then the LORD shall be my God, 28 22 and this stone which I have set up as a sacred pillar shall be a house of God. And of all that thou givest me, I will without fail allot a tenth part to thee.'
