Genesis Chapter 35:16-29

Genesis 35:16-29 NKJV

16 Then they journeyed from Bethel. And when there was but a little distance to go to Ephrath, Rachel labored [in childbirth], and she had hard labor.

17 Now it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said to her, “Do not fear; you will have this son also.”

18 And so it was, as her soul was departing (for she died), that she called his name Ben-Oni; but his father called him Benjamin.

19 So Rachel died and was buried on the way to Ephrath (that [is], Bethlehem).

20 And Jacob set a pillar on her grave, which [is] the pillar of Rachel’s grave to this day.

21 Then Israel journeyed and pitched his tent beyond the tower of Eder.

22 And it happened, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father’s concubine; and Israel heard [about it]. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:

23 the sons of Leah [were] Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn, and Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun;

24 the sons of Rachel [were] Joseph and Benjamin;

25 the sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s maidservant, [were] Dan and Naphtali;

26 and the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s maidservant, [were] Gad and Asher. These [were] the sons of Jacob who were born to him in Padan Aram.

27 Then Jacob came to his father Isaac at Mamre, or Kirjath Arba (that [is], Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had dwelt.

28 Now the days of Isaac were one hundred and eighty years.

29 So Isaac breathed his last and died, and was gathered to his people, [being] old and full of days. And his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
