ND Isaac having called for Jacob, blessed him, and charged him, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of the Chananites. 2 Rise and depart quickly into Mesopotamia, to the house of Bathuel the father of thy mother, and take to thyself thence a wife of the daughters of Laban thy mother's brother. 3 And may my God bless thee, and increase thee, and multiply thee, and thou shalt become gatherings of nations. 4 And may he give thee the blessing of my father Abraam, even to thee and to thy seed after thee, to inherit the land of thy sojourning, which God gave to Abraam. 5 So Isaac sent away Jacob, and he went into Mesopotamia to Laban the son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebecca the mother of Jacob and Esau. 6 And Esau saw that Isaac blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Mesopotamia of Syria as he blessed him, to take to himself a wife thence, and [that] he charged him, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of the Chananites; 7 and [that] Jacob hearkened to his father and his mother, and went to Mesopotamia of Syria. 8 And Esau also having seen that the daughters of Chanaan were evil before his father Isaac, 9 Esau went to Ismael, and took Maeleth the daughter of Ismael, the son of Abraam, the sister of Nabeoth, a wife in addition to his [other] wives. 10 And Jacob went forth from the well of the oath, and departed into Charrhan. 11 And came to a certain place and slept there, for the sun had gone down; and he took [one] of the stones of the place, and put it at his head, and lay down to sleep in that place, 12 and dreamed, and behold a ladder fixed on the earth, whose top reached to heaven, and the angels of God ascended and descended on it.

ΠΡΟΣΚΑΛΕΣΑΜΕΝΟΣ δὲ ᾿Ισαὰκ τὸν ᾿Ιακὼβ εὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ λέγων· οὐ λήψῃ γυναῖκα ἐκ τῶν θυγατέρων τῶν Χαναναίων· 2 ἀναστὰς ἀπόδραθι εἰς τὴν Μεσοποταμίαν, εἰς τὸν οἶκον Βαθουὴλ τοῦ πατρὸς τῆς μητρός σου καὶ λάβε σεαυτῷ ἐκεῖθεν γυναῖκα ἐκ τῶν θυγατέρων Λάβαν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ τῆς μητρός σου. 3 ὁ δὲ Θεός μου εὐλογήσαι σε καὶ αὐξήσαι σε καὶ πληθύναι σε, καὶ ἔσῃ εἰς συναγωγὰς ἐθνῶν· 4 καὶ δῴη σοι τὴν εὐλογίαν ῾Αβραὰμ τοῦ πατρός μου σοὶ καὶ τῷ σπέρματί σου μετὰ σέ, κληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν τῆς παροικήσεώς σου, ἣν ἔδωκεν ὁ Θεὸς τῷ ῾Αβραάμ. 5 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ᾿Ισαὰκ τὸν ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς τὴν Μεσσοποταμίαν πρὸς Λάβαν τὸν υἱὸν Βαθουὴλ τοῦ Σύρου, ἀδελφὸν Ρεβέκκας τῆς μητρὸς ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ ῾Ησαῦ. 6 Εἶδε δὲ ῾Ησαῦ ὅτι εὐλόγησεν ᾿Ισαὰκ τὸν ᾿Ιακώβ, καὶ ἀπῴχετο εἰς τὴν Μεσοποταμίαν Συρίας λαβεῖν ἑαυτῷ γυναῖκα ἐκεῖθεν ἐν τῷ εὐλογεῖν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ λέγων· οὐ λήψῃ γυναῖκα ἐκ τῶν θυγατέρων τῶν Χαναναίων, 7 καὶ ἤκουσεν ᾿Ιακὼβ τοῦ πατρὸς καὶ τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς τὴν Μεσοποταμίαν Συρίας. 8 ἰδὼν δὲ καὶ ῾Ησαῦ ὅτι πονηραί εἰσιν αἱ θυγατέρες Χαναὰν ἐναντίον ᾿Ισαὰκ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, 9 ἐπορεύθη ῾Ησαῦ πρὸς ᾿Ισμαὴλ καὶ ἔλαβε τὴν Μαελὲθ θυγατέρα ᾿Ισμαὴλ τοῦ υἱοῦ ῾Αβραάμ, ἀδελφὴν Ναβεώθ, πρὸς ταῖς γυναιξὶν αὐτοῦ γυναῖκα. 10 Καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ᾿Ιακὼβ ἀπὸ τοῦ φρέατος τοῦ ὅρκου καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς Χαρράν. 11 καὶ ἀπήντησε τόπῳ καὶ ἐκοιμήθῃ ἐκεῖ· ἔδυ γὰρ ὁ ἥλιος· καὶ ἔλαβεν ἀπὸ τῶν λίθων τοῦ τόπου, καὶ ἔθηκε πρὸς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐν τῷ τόπῳ ἐκείνῳ. 12 καὶ ἐνυπνιάσθη, καὶ ἰδοὺ κλίμαξ ἐστηριγμένη ἐν τῇ γῇ, ἧς ἡ κεφαλὴ ἀφικνεῖτο εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν, καὶ οἱ ἄγγελοι τοῦ Θεοῦ ἀνέβαινον καὶ κατέβαινον ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς.
