Bible: Gen 35:9-15

35:9 God appeared to Jacob again after he returned from Paddan Aram and blessed him. 35:10 God said to him, “Your name is Jacob, but your name will no longer be called Jacob; Israel will be your name.” So God named him Israel. 1  35:11 Then God said to him, “I am the sovereign God. 2  Be fruitful and multiply! A nation – even a company of nations – will descend from you; kings will be among your descendants! 3  35:12 The land I gave 4  to Abraham and Isaac I will give to you. To your descendants 5  I will also give this land.” 35:13 Then God went up from the place 6  where he spoke with him. 35:14 So Jacob set up a sacred stone pillar in the place where God spoke with him. 7  He poured out a drink offering on it, and then he poured oil on it. 8  35:15 Jacob named the place 9  where God spoke with him Bethel. 10
