Jacob Is Named Israel

9 Then God appeared to Jacob again when he came from Paddan-aram, and He ablessed him.

10 aGod said to him,

“Your name is Jacob;

1You shall no longer be called Jacob,

But Israel shall be your name.”

Thus He called 2him Israel.

11 God also said to him,

“I am 1aGod Almighty;

bBe fruitful and multiply;

A nation and a ccompany of nations shall 2come from you,

And dkings shall 2come forth from 3you.

12 “aThe land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac,

I will give it to you,

And I will give the land to your 1descendants after you.”

13 Then aGod went up from him in the place where He had spoken with him.

14 Jacob set up aa 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, 1aBethel.
