Jacob purgeth his family from idols: goeth by God's commandment to Bethel, and there buildeth an altar. God appearing again to Jacob blesseth him, and changeth his name into Israel. Rachel dieth in childbirth. Isaac also dieth.
1 In the meantime God said to Jacob: Arise, and go up to Bethel, and dwell there, and make there an altar to God, who appeared to thee when thou didst flee from Esau thy brother.
Interea locutus est Deus ad Jacob : Surge, et ascende Bethel, et habita ibi, facque altare Deo qui apparuit tibi quando fugiebas Esau fratrem tuum.
2 And Jacob having called together all his household, said: Cast away the strange gods that are among you, and be cleansed and change your garments.
Jacob vero convocata omni domo sua, ait : Abjicite deos alienos qui in medio vestri sunt, et mundamini, ac mutate vestimenta vestra.
3 Arise, and let us go up to Bethel, that we may make there an altar to God: who heard me in the day of my affliction, and accompanied me in my journey.
Surgite, et ascendamus in Bethel, ut faciamus ibi altare Deo : qui exaudivit me in die tribulationis meae, et socius fuit itineris mei.
4 So they gave him all the strange gods they had, and the earrings which were in their ears: and he buried them under the turpentine tree, that is behind the city of Sichem.
Dederunt ergo ei omnes deos alienos quos habebant, et inaures quae erant in auribus eorum : at ille infodit ea subter terebinthum, quae est post urbem Sichem.
5 And when they were departed, the terror of God fell upon all the cities round about, and they durst not pursue after them as they went away.
Cumque profecti essent, terror Dei invasit omnes per circuitum civitates, et non sunt ausi persequi recedentes.
6 And Jacob came to Luza, which is in the land of Chanaan, surnamed Bethel: he and all the people that were with him.
Venit igitur Jacob Luzam, quae est in terra Chanaan, cognomento Bethel : ipse et omnis populus cum eo.
7 And he built there an altar, and called the name of that place, The house of God: for there God appeared to him when he fled from his brother.
Aedificavitque ibi altare, et appellavit nomen loci illius, Domus Dei : ibi enim apparuit ei Deus cum fugeret fratrem suum.
8 At the same time Debora the nurse of Rebecca died, and was buried at the foot of Bethel under an oak: and the name of that place was called, The oak of weeping.
Eodem tempore mortua est Debora nutrix Rebeccae, et sepulta est ad radices Bethel subter quercum : vocatumque est nomen loci illius, Quercus fletus.
9 And God appeared again to Jacob, after he returned from Mesopotamia of Syria, and he blessed him,
Apparuit autem iterum Deus Jacob postquam reversus est de Mespotamia Syriae, benedixitque ei
10 Saying: Thou shalt not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name. And he called him Israel.
dicens : Non vocaberis ultra Jacob, sed Israel erit nomen tuum. Et appellavit eum Israel,
11 And said to him: I am God Almighty, increase thou and be multiplied. Nations and peoples of nations shall be from thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins.
dixitque ei : Ego Deus omnipotens : cresce, et multiplicare : gentes et populi nationum ex te erunt, reges de lumbis tuis egredientur,
12 And the land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, I will give to thee, and to thy seed after thee.
terramque quam dedi Abraham et Isaac, dabo tibi et semini tuo post te.
13 And he departed from him.
Et recessit ab eo.
14 But he set up a monument of stone, in the place where God had spoken to him: pouring drink offerings upon it, and pouring oil thereon:
Ille vero erexit titulum lapideum in loco quo locutus fuerat ei Deus : libans super eum libamina, et effundens oleum :
15 And calling the name of that place Bethel.
vocansque nomen loci illius Bethel.
16 And going forth from thence, he came in the springtime to the land which leadeth to Ephrata: wherein when Rachel was in travail,
Egressus autem inde, venit verno tempore ad terram quae ducit Ephratam : in qua cum parturiret Rachel,
17 By reason of her hard labour she began to be in danger, and the midwife said to her: Fear not, for thou shalt have this son also.
ob difficultatem partus periclitari coepit. Dixitque ei obstetrix : Noli timere, quia et hunc habebis filium.
18 And when her soul was departing for pain, and death was now at hand, she called the name of her son Benoni, that is, The son of my pain: but his father called him Benjamin, that is, The son of the right hand.
Egrediente autem anima prae dolore, et imminente jam morte, vocavit nomen filii sui Benomi, id est, Filius doloris mei : pater vero appellavit eum Benjamin, id est, Filius dextrae.
19 So Rachel died, and was buried in the highway that leadeth to Ephrata, this is Bethlehem.
Mortua est ergo Rachel, et sepulta est in via quae ducit Ephratam, haec est Bethlehem.
20 And Jacob erected a pillar over her sepulchre: this is the pillar of Rachel's monument, to this day.
Erexitque Jacob titulum super sepulchrum ejus : hic est titulus monumenti Rachel, usque in praesentem diem.
21 Departing thence, he pitched his tent beyond the Flock tower.
Egressus inde, fixit tabernaculum trans Turrem gregis.
22 And when he dwelt in that country, Ruben went, and slept with Bala, the concubine of his father: which he was not ignorant of. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve.
Cumque habitaret in illa regione, abiit Ruben, et dormivit cum Bala concubina patris sui : quod illum minime latuit. Erant autem filii Jacob duodecim.
23 The sons of Lia: Ruben the first born, and Simeon, and Levi, and Juda, and Issachar, and Zabulon.
Filii Liae : primogenitus Ruben, et Simeon, et Levi, et Judas, et Issachar, et Zabulon.
24 The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.
Filii Rachel : Joseph et Benjamin.
25 The sons of Bala, Rachel's handmaid: Dan and Nephtali.
Filii Balae ancillae Rachelis : Dan et Nephthali.
26 The sons of Zelpha, Lia's handmaid: Gad and Aser: these are the sons of Jacob, that were born to him in Mesopotamia of Syria.
Filii Zelphae ancillae Liae : Gad et Aser : hi sunt filii Jacob, qui nati sunt ei in Mesopotamia Syriae.
27 And he came to Isaac his father in Mambre, the city of Arbee, this is Hebron: wherein Abraham and Isaac sojourned.
Venit etiam ad Isaac patrem suum in Mambre, civitatem Arbee, haec est Hebron, in qua peregrinatus est Abraham et Isaac.
28 And the days of Isaac were a hundred and eighty years.
Et completi sunt dies Isaac centum octoginta annorum.
29 And being spent with age he died, and was gathered to his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
Consumptusque aetate mortuus est : et appositus est populo suo senex et plenus dierum : et sepelierunt eum Esau et Jacob filii sui.
