Bible: Genesis 28:1-4

28:1 So Isaac called for Jacob and blessed him. Then he commanded him, “You must not marry a Canaanite woman! 1  28:2 Leave immediately 2  for Paddan Aram! Go to the house of Bethuel, your mother’s father, and find yourself a wife there, among the daughters of Laban, your mother’s brother. 28:3 May the sovereign God 3  bless you! May he make you fruitful and give you a multitude of descendants! 4  Then you will become 5  a large nation. 6  28:4 May he give you and your descendants the blessing he gave to Abraham 7  so that you may possess the land 8  God gave to Abraham, the land where you have been living as a temporary resident.” 9
