I believe that Jacob was sitting this up as an altar to the LORD God. He later returned to this same place and sacrificed again with his wives Rachel and Leah, his two concubines, his daughter, and his twelve sons. Gen 35:6-15. He returned to Bethel (the House of God) to make a new sacrifice and God again met him there. God is always willing to meet and sup with us when we are willing to make the sacrifice to come back to His House and pour out our praise and worship to Him. Be Blessed, Lena
