Yovel Jubilees 25

1 a:

And in the second year of this week in this jubilee, Riv'qah (7259) called Ya'aqov (3290) her son, and spake unto [2109 A.M.] him, saying: 'My son, do not take thee a wife of the daughters of K'na'an (3667), as Esav (6215), thy brother, who took him two wives of the daughters of K'na'an (3667), and they have embittered my soul with all their unclean deeds: for all their deeds are fornication and lust, and there is no righteousness with them, for (their deeds) are evil.

2 b:

And I, my son, love thee exceedingly, and my heart and my affection bless thee every hour of the day and watch of the night.

3 g:

And now, my son, hearken to my voice, and do the will of thy mother, and do not take thee a wife of the daughters of this land, but only of the house of my father, and of my father's kindred. Thou shalt take thee a wife of the house of my father, and the Most High Elohim (430) will bless thee, and thy children shall be a righteous generation and a holy seed.'

4 d:

And then spake Ya'aqov (3290) to Riv'qah (7259), his mother, and said unto her: 'Behold, mother, I am nine weeks of years old, and I neither know nor have I touched any woman, nor have I betrothed myself to any, nor even think of taking me a wife of the daughters of K'na'an (3667).

5 h:

For I remember, mother, the words of Av'raham (85), our father, for he commanded me not to take a wife of the daughters of K'na'an (3667), but to take me a wife from the seed of my father's house and from my kindred.

6 w:

I have heard before that daughters have been born to Lavan (3837), thy brother, and I have set my heart on them to take a wife from amongst them.

7 z:

And for this reason I have guarded myself in my spirit against sinning or being corrupted in all my ways throughout all the days of my life; for with regard to lust and fornication, Av'raham (85), my father, gave me many commands.

8 x:

And, despite all that he has commanded me, these two and twenty years my brother has striven with me, and spoken frequently to me and said: 'My brother, take to wife a sister of my two wives'; but I refuse to do as he has done.

9 j:

I swear before thee, mother, that all the days of my life I will not take me a wife from the daughters of the seed of K'na'an (3667), and I will not act wickedly as my brother has done.

10 y:

Fear not, mother; be assured that I shall do thy will and walk in uprightness, and not corrupt my ways for ever.'

11 ay:

And thereupon she lifted up her face to heaven and extended the fingers of her hands, and opened her mouth and blessed the Most High Elohim (430), who had created the heaven and the earth, and she gave Him thanks and praise.

12 by:

And she said: 'Blessed be Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430), and may His holy name be blessed for ever and ever, who has given me Ya'aqov (3290) as a pure son and a holy seed; for he is Thine, and Thine shall his seed be continually and throughout all the generations for evermore.

13 gy:

Bless him, O Lord, and place in my mouth the blessing of righteousness, that I may bless him.'

14 dy:

And at that hour, when the spirit of righteousness descended into her mouth, she placed both her hands on the head of Ya'aqov (3290), and said:

15 hj:

Blessed art thou, Lord of righteousness and Elohim (430) of the ages And may He bless thee beyond all the generations of men. May He give thee, my Son, the path of righteousness, And reveal righteousness to thy seed.

16 wj:

And may He make thy sons many during thy life, And may they arise according to the number of the months of the year. And may their sons become many and great beyond the stars of heaven, And their numbers be more than the sand of the sea.

17 zy:

And may He give them this goodly land -as He said He would give it to Av'raham (85) and to his seed after him alway- And may they hold it as a possession for ever.

18 xy:

And may I see (born) unto thee, my son, blessed children during my life, And a blessed and holy seed may all thy seed be.

19 jy:

And as thou hast refreshed thy mother's spirit during her life, The womb of her that bare thee blesses thee thus, [My affection] and my breasts bless thee And my mouth and my tongue praise thee greatly.

20 k:

Increase and spread over the earth, And may thy seed be perfect in the joy of heaven and earth for ever; And may thy seed rejoice, And on the great day of peace may it have peace.

21 ak:

And may thy name and thy seed endure to all the ages, And may the Most High Elohim (430) be their Elohim (430), And may the Elohim (430) of righteousness dwell with them, And by them may His sanctuary be built unto all the ages.

22 bk:

Blessed be he that blesShet (8352) thee, And all flesh that curShet (8352) thee falsely, may it be cursed.'

23 gk:

And she kissed him, and said to him; 'May Y'hovah (3068) of the world love thee As the heart of thy mother and her affection rejoice in thee and bless thee.' And she ceased from blessing.
