Death of Isaac

GENESIS 35:1  And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and  make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from  the face of Esau thy brother.

GENESIS 35:2  Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him,  Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your  garments:

GENESIS 35:3  And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar  unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the  way which I went.

GENESIS 35:4  And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their  hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them  under the oak which was by Shechem.

GENESIS 35:5  And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that  were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.

GENESIS 35:6  So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is,  Bethel, he and all the people that were with him.

GENESIS 35:7  And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel: because  there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.

GENESIS 35:8  But Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried beneath Bethel  under an oak: and the name of it was called Allonbachuth. (1)

GENESIS 35:9  And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and  blessed him.

GENESIS 35:10  And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be  called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name  Israel.

GENESIS 35:11  And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply;  a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out  of thy loins;

GENESIS 35:12  And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give  it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.

GENESIS 35:13  And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him.

GENESIS 35:14  And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him,  even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured  oil thereon.

GENESIS 35:15  And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him,  Bethel.

GENESIS 35:16  And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to  come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.

GENESIS 35:17  And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife  said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.

GENESIS 35:18  And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died)  that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.

GENESIS 35:19  And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is  Bethlehem.

GENESIS 35:20  And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of  Rachel's grave unto this day.

GENESIS 35:21  And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.

GENESIS 35:22  And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben  went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the  sons of Jacob were twelve:

GENESIS 35:23  The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, and  Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:

GENESIS 35:24  The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:

GENESIS 35:25  And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:

GENESIS 35:26  And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid: Gad, and Asher: these are  the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padanaram.

GENESIS 35:27  And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of  Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.

GENESIS 35:28  And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years.

GENESIS 35:29  And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his  people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, accepted by the three major Western faiths and a major work of Western civilization, documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
