Genesis Chapter 35:9-18

Genesis 35:9-18 NKJV

9 Then God appeared to Jacob again, when he came from Padan Aram, and blessed him.

10 And God said to him, “Your name [is] Jacob; your name shall not be called Jacob anymore, but Israel shall be your name.” So He called his name Israel.

11 Also God said to him: “I [am] God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body.

12 “The land which I gave Abraham and Isaac I give to you; and to your descendants after you I give this land.”

13 Then God went up from him in the place where He talked with him.

14 So Jacob set up a pillar in the place where He talked with him, a pillar of stone; and he poured a drink offering on it, and he poured oil on it.

15 And Jacob called the name of the place where God spoke with him, Bethel.

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.
