. . . . On 4/19/96, upon picking up another person's unused Bible, this chapter is where the book opened. The topics, Beth-el, oak, nurse, Allonbachuth, change of garments (Zech. 3), had all been studied extensively the day prior (especially pp. 12,13 of Strong's Concordance's Abbreviated Hebrew Dictionary).  I have personal interest in this account as 'Allon' is the closest Hebrew word to my last name.

a. . v1 And God said unto Jacob, Arise,
. . b. . go up to Bethel, and dwell there:
. . . . c. . and make there an altar unto God,
. . . . . . d. . that appeared unto thee
. . . . . . . . e. . when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.
. . . . . . . . . . f. . v2 Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods
. . . . . . . . . . . . g. . that are among you,
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . h. . and be clean,
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . i. . and change your garments:

a. . v3 And let us arise,
. . b. . and go up to Bethel;
. . . . c. . and I will make there an altar unto God,
. . . . . . d. . who answered me
. . . . . . . . e. . in the day of my distress,
. . . . . . d. . and was with me
. . . . . . . . e. . in the way which I went.
. . . . . . . . . . f. . v4 And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods
. . . . . . . . . . . . g. . which were in their hand,
. . . . . . . . . . f. . and all their earrings
. . . . . . . . . . . . g. . which were in their ears;
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . h. . and Jacob hid them
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . i. . under the oak which was by Shechem.

a. . v5 And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.
. . b. . v6 So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Bethel, he and all the people that were with him.
. . . . c. . v7 And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel:
. . . . . . d. . because there God appeared unto him,
. . . . . . . . e. . when he fled from the face of his brother.
. . . . . . . . . . f. . v8 But Deborah [opposite/purified]
. . . . . . . . . . . . g. . Rebekah's nurse [?]
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . h. . died, and she was buried
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . i. . beneath Bethel under an oak: and the name of it was called Allon-bachuth.

 

The remainder of this chapter contains the following significant items: (1) At what Jacob called Bethel, God appeared unto Jacob again and changed his name to Israel, and renewed the covenant of Abraham and Isaac upon his head. (2) In Bethlehem Rachel dies giving birth to Benoni, whose name is changed to Benjamin. (3) Reuben defiles his father's bed; the twelve tribes are listed (a list that will later be changed because of that act). (4) Isaac dies in Mamre and is buried by Esau and Jacob.

Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
