Yovel Jubilees 27
:And the words of Esav (6215), her elder son, were told to Riv'qah (7259) in a dream, and Riv'qah (7259)
called Ya'aqov (3290) her younger son,
:and said unto him: 'Behold Esav (6215) thy brother will take
thee so as to kill thee.
:Now, therefore, my son, obey my voice, and arise and flee thou
to Lavan (3837), my brother, to Haran (2039), and tarry with him a few days until thy brother's anger turns
away, and he remove his anger from thee, and forget all that thou hast done; then I will send and
fetch thee from
:And Ya'aqov (3290) said: 'I am not afraid; if he wishes to kill me, I will kill him.'
unto him: 'Let me not be bereft of both my sons on one day.'
:And Ya'aqov (3290) said to
Riv'qah (7259) his mother: 'Behold, thou knowest that my father has become old, and does not see
because his eyes are dull, and if I leave him it will be evil in his eyes, because I leave him and go
away from you, and my father will be angry, and will curse me. I will not go; when he sends me,
then only will I go.'
:And Riv'qah (7259) said to Ya'aqov (3290): 'I will go in and speak to him, and he will send thee
:And Riv'qah (7259) went in and said to Yits'chaq (3327): 'I loathe my life because of the two daughters of
Chet (2845), whom Esav (6215) has taken him as wives; and if Ya'aqov (3290) take a wife from among the daughters of
the land such
as these, for what purpose do I further live, for the daughters of K'na'an (3667) are evil.'
Yits'chaq (3327) called
Ya'aqov (3290) and blessed him, and admonished him and said unto him: 'Do not take thee a
wife of any of the daughters of K'na'an (3667);
:arise and go to Mesopotamia, to the house of B'tu'el (1328),
thy mother's father,
and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Lavan (3837), thy mother's brother.
Elohim (430) Almighty bless thee and increase and multiply thee that thou mayest become a company of
nations, and give thee the blessings of my father Av'raham (85), to thee and to thy seed after thee, that
thou mayest inherit the land of thy sojournings and all the land which Elohim (430) gave to Av'raham (85): go,
son, in peace.'
:And Yits'chaq (3327) sent Ya'aqov (3290) away, and he went to Mesopotamia, to Lavan (3837) the
B'tu'el (1328) the Syrian, the brother of Riv'qah (7259), Ya'aqov (3290)'s mother.
:And it came to pass after
Ya'aqov (3290) had
arisen to go to Mesopotamia that the spirit of Riv'qah (7259) was grieved after her son, and
:And Yits'chaq (3327) said to Riv'qah (7259): 'My sister, weep not on account of Ya'aqov (3290), my son; for he
goeth in peace, and
in peace will he return.
:The Most High Elohim (430) will preserve him from all evil, and will be
for He will not forsake him all his days;
:For I know that his ways will be prospered in
wherever he goes, until he return in peace to us, and we see him in peace.
:Fear not on
his account, my sister, for he is on the upright path and he is a perfect man: and he is faithful and
will not perish.
:And Yits'chaq (3327) comforted Riv'qah (7259) on account of her son Ya'aqov (3290), and blessed
:And Ya'aqov (3290) went from the Well of the Oath to go to Haran (2039) on the first year of the second
week in the forty-fourth jubilee, and he came to Luz (3870) on the mountains, that is, Beyt El (1008), on the new
moon of the first month of this week, [2115 A.M.] and he came to the place at even and turned
from the way to the west of the
road that night: and he slept there; for the sun had set.
:And he took one of the stones
place and laid <it at his head> under the tree, and he was journeying alone, and he
:And he dreamt that night, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached
to heaven, and behold, the angels of Y'hovah (3068) ascended and descended on it: and behold, the
Lord stood upon it.
:And he spake to Ya'aqov (3290) and said: 'I am Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430) of Av'raham (85), thy father, and the
Elohim (430) of
Yits'chaq (3327); the land whereon thou art sleeping, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed after
:And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt increase to the west and to the
east, to the
north and the south, and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the nations be
:And behold, I will be with thee, and will keep thee whithersoever thou goest, and I will
bring thee again into this land in peace; for I will not leave thee until I do everything that I told
:And Ya'aqov (3290) awoke from his sleep, and said, 'Truly this place is the house of Y'hovah (3068),
and I knew it not.' And he was afraid and said: 'Dreadful is this place which is none other than
the house of
Elohim (430), and this is the gate of heaven.'
:And Ya'aqov (3290) arose early in the morning, and took
the stone which he had put under his head and set it up as a pillar for a sign, and he poured oil
upon the top of it. And he called the name of that place Beyt El (1008); but the name of the place was
Luz (3870) at the first.
:And Ya'aqov (3290) vowed a vow unto Y'hovah (3068), saying: 'If Y'hovah (3068) will be with me, and will
keep me in this way that I go, and give me bread to eat and raiment to put on, so that I come
again to my father's house in peace, then shall Y'hovah (3068) be my Elohim (430), and this stone which I have
set up as a pillar for a sign in this place, shall be Y'hovah (3068)'s house, and of all that thou givest me, I
shall give the tenth to thee, my Elohim (430).'
