11 And God said to him, I am thy God; increase and multiply; for nations and gatherings of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins. 12 And the land which I gave to Abraam and Isaac, I have given it to thee; and it shall come to pass that I will give this land also to thy seed after thee. 13 And God went up from him from the place where he spoke with him. 14 And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where God spoke with him, [even] a pillar of stone; and offered a libation upon it, and poured oil upon it. 15 And Jacob called the name of the place in which God spoke with him, Baethel. 16 [And Jacob removed from Baethel, and pitched his tent beyond the tower of Gader,] and it came to pass when he drew nigh to Chabratha, to enter into Ephratha, Rachel travailed; and in her travail she was in hard labour. 17 And it came to pass in her hard labour, that the midwife said to her, Be of good courage, for thou shalt also have this son. 18 And it came to pass in her giving up the ghost (for she was dying), that she called his name, The son of my pain; but his father called his name Benjamin. 19 So Rachel died, and was buried in the way of the course of Ephratha, this is Bethleem. 20 And Jacob set up a pillar on her tomb; this is the pillar on the tomb of Rachel, until this day.

11 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ ὁ Θεός· ἐγὼ ὁ Θεός σου· αὐξάνου καὶ πληθύνου· ἔθνη καὶ συναγωγαὶ ἐθνῶν ἔσονται ἐκ σοῦ, καὶ βασιλεῖς ἐκ τῆς ὀσφύος σου ἐξελεύσονται. 12 καὶ τὴν γῆν, ἣν ἔδωκα ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ᾿Ισαάκ, σοὶ δέδωκα αὐτήν· σοὶ ἔσται, καὶ τῷ σπέρματί σου μετὰ σὲ δώσω τὴν γῆν ταύτην. 13 ἀνέβη δὲ ὁ Θεὸς ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἐκ τοῦ τόπου, οὗ ἐλάλησε μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 14 καὶ ἔστησεν ᾿Ιακὼβ στήλην ἐν τῷ τόπῳ, ᾧ ἐλάλησε μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ ὁ Θεός, στήλην λιθίνην, καὶ ἔσπεισεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὴν σπονδὴν καὶ ἐπέχεεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὴν ἔλαιον. 15 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ᾿Ιακὼβ τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου, ἐν ᾧ ἐλάλησε μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἐκεῖ ὁ Θεός, Βαιθήλ. 16 ᾿Απάρας δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐκ Βαιθήλ, ἔπηξε τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ ἐπέκεινα τοῦ πύργου Γαδέρ. ἐγένετο δὲ ἡνίκα ἤγγισεν εἰς Χαβραθὰ τοῦ ἐλθεῖν εἰς τὴν ᾿Εφραθᾶ, ἔτεκε Ραχὴλ καὶ ἐδυστόκησεν ἐν τῷ τοκετῷ. 17 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ σκληρῶς αὐτὴν τίκτειν, εἶπεν αὐτῇ ἡ μαῖα· θάρσει, καὶ γὰρ οὗτός σοί ἐστιν υἱός. 18 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ ἀφιέναι αὐτὴν τὴν ψυχήν, ἀπέθνησκε γάρ, ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Υἱὸς ὀδύνης μου· ὁ δὲ πατὴρ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Βενιαμίν. 19 ἀπέθανε δὲ Ραχὴλ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ τοῦ ἱπποδρόμου ᾿Εφραθᾶ (αὕτη ἐστὶ Βηθλεέμ). 20 καὶ ἔστησεν ᾿Ιακὼβ στήλην ἐπὶ τοῦ μνημείου αὐτῆς· αὕτη ἐστὶν ἡ στήλη ἐπὶ τοῦ μνημείου Ραχὴλ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης.
