P T1 7
6Jacob and all the people with him came to Luz (that is, Bethel) in the land of Canaan.
7There he built an altar, and he called the place El Bethel, because it was there that God revealed himself to him when he was fleeing from his brother.
8Now Deborah, Rebekah’s nurse, died and was buried under the oak outside Bethel. So it was named Allon Bakuth.
9After Jacob returned from Paddan Aram, God appeared to him again and blessed him.
10God said to him, “Your name is Jacob, but you will no
longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel. ” So he
named him Israel.
11And God said to him, “I am God Almighty; be fruitful and
increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will be among your descendants.
12The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you,
and I will give this land to your descendants after you.”
13Then God went up from him at the place where he had talked with him.
14Jacob set up a stone pillar at the place where God had talked with him, and he poured out a drink offering on it; he also poured oil on it.
15Jacob called the place where God had talked with him
He will bless you, God is for you and not against you,
he is leading your victory team.
