So Isaac called for Jacob, blessed him, and said, “You must not marry any of these Canaanite women.
Instead, go at once to Paddan-aram, to the house of your grandfather Bethuel, and marry one of your uncle Laban’s daughters.
May God Almighty 1 bless you and give you many children. And may your descendants multiply and become many nations!
May God pass on to you and your descendants 2 the blessings he promised to Abraham. May you own this land where you are now living as a foreigner, for God gave this land to Abraham.”
So Isaac sent Jacob away, and he went to Paddan-aram to stay with his uncle Laban, his mother’s brother, the son of Bethuel the Aramean.
