28:4 And give you the blessing of Abraham, to you, and to your seed with

28:11 And he came on a place, and stayed there all night,
because the sun was set ; and he took of the stones of that
place, and put [them for] his pillows, and lay down in that place
28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top
of it reached to heaven and behold the angels of Eloheem
ascending and descending on it.
28:13 And, behold, Yehovah stood above it, and said, I [am]
Yehovah the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac the land on which you are lying, to you will I give it, and to
your seed ;
28:14 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall
spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the
north, and to the south and in you and in your seed shall all the
families of the earth be blessed.
28:15 And, behold, I [am] with you, and will guard you in all [places] in which you
may go, and will bring you back into this land ; for I will not leave you, until I have done [that] which I have spoken to you of.
28:16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely
Yehovah is in this place ; and I knew [it]
28:17 And he was afraid, and said, How fearful [is] this
place! This [is] nothing except the house of Eloheem, and this
[is] the door to heaven.
28:18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the
stone that he had put [for] his pillows, and set it up as a
memorial pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

name of that city [was called] Luz at the first.

and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to
eat, and clothes to put on,
28:21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace ; then will Yehovah be my Eloheem
28:22 And this stone, which I have set [for] a pillar, shall become the house of Eloheem and of all that you shall
give me I will surely give the tenth to you.
