Some Notes:

The English language has no gender-neutral pronouns. So when the words man, he, him, etc are used, they mean "Generic human being" unless the context specifically says otherwise. Only women get words devoted just to them.

Thou, Thee, and Thine are singular pronouns. You and Your are plural in the 16th Century English the King James Bible was translated into. This actually makes the message clearer than our habit of using "you" as both a singular and a plural.

In many scriptures I have changed the King James (English) spelling to American spelling (labour=labor, for example. I understand those in England still spell it with a u). Also, in some scriptures I have changed the "-eth" to a simple "s." Spelling standards weren't set in English until the mid 1800's, well after the translating of the KJV. So I see no problem with making these simple changes that don't affect the meaning of the scripture but make it easier for our modern mouths and ears to deal with.

Genesis 28- Jacob’s Travels

1 And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, “Thou shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

2 “Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother’s father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother’s brother.

3 “And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou may be a multitude of people;

4 “And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou may inherit the land wherein thou are a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.”

Isaac does as Rebekah wants him to do and sends Jacob to her family with instructions to find a wife there. He reaffirms the blessings he gave earlier and he now passes on the blessings of the Messianic line to Jacob.

5 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob’s and Esau’s mother.

6 When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, “Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan;”

7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padanaram;

8 And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father;

9 Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham’s son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

Solely in order to please his parents, Esau marries a third wife, this one his cousin.

10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried 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 to sleep.

Humans sleep more comfortably if their heads are level instead of slopped down to the ground. Jacob left so quickly he obviously didn’t take very many supplies with him and made do with what was at hand.

Neat symbolism, though. When we take our rest in the Rock of Christ we see Heaven and hear from God.

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 God ascending and descending on it.

13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, “I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land where thou lie, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

14 “And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shall spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

15 “And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places where thou go, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.”

God gives the same blessing to Jacob that He gave to Isaac and Abraham.

16 And Jacob awoke out of his sleep, and he said, “Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.”

17 And he was afraid, and said, “How dreadful is this place! This is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.”

18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

19 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

Bethel (Bet-El in Hebrew) means “House of God.” He has not yet come to the realization that God is everywhere, not just in this one place.

20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, “If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,

21 “So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:

22 “And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shall give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.”

In twenty years when Jacob came back this way, he kept this promise and worshiped at this rock.
