6 So Jacob came to aLuz (that is, Bethel), which is in the land of Canaan, he and all the people who were with him.
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.
bBe fruitful and multiply;
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.
17 When she was in severe labor the midwife said to her, “Do not fear, for now ayou have another son.”
20 Jacob set up a pillar over her grave; that is the apillar of Rachel’s grave to this day.
22 It came about while Israel was dwelling in that land, that aReuben went and lay with Bilhah his father’s concubine, and Israel heard of it.
