1 Then Isaac called Jacob and a blessed him, and 1 charged him, and said to him: b "You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan. 2 c "Arise, go to d Padan Aram, to the house of e Bethuel your mother's father; and take yourself a wife from there of the daughters of f Laban your mother's brother. 3 "May g God Almighty bless you,
And make you h fruitful and multiply you,
That you may be an assembly of peoples;
4 And give you i the blessing of Abraham,
To you and your descendants with you,
That you may inherit the land
j In 2 which you are a stranger,
Which God gave to Abraham."
5 So Isaac sent Jacob away, and he went to Padan Aram, to Laban the son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, the mother of Jacob and Esau.
