Jacob Is Sent Away1 So Isaac called Jacob and a blessed him and charged him, and said to him, b “You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan. 2 “Arise, go to Paddan-aram, to the house of c Bethuel your mother’s father; and from there take to yourself a wife from the daughters of Laban your mother’s brother. 3 “May ▼
▼ Heb El Shaddai, e God Almighty f bless you and g make you fruitful and h multiply you, that you may become a i company of peoples. 4 “May He also give you the j blessing of Abraham, to you and to your ▼ descendants with you, that you may l possess the land of your m sojournings, which God gave to Abraham.” 5 Then n Isaac sent Jacob away, and he went to Paddan-aram to Laban, son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, the mother of Jacob and Esau. 6 Now Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Paddan-aram to take to himself a wife from there, and that when he blessed him he charged him, saying o “You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan,” 7 and that Jacob had obeyed his father and his mother and had gone to Paddan-aram. 8 So Esau saw that p the daughters of Canaan displeased ▼
