- "God said to Jacob, ""Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there; and make there an altar to the God who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau."" "
- "So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, ""Put away the foreign gods that are among you, and purify yourselves, and change your garments; "
- "then let us arise and go up to Bethel, that I may make there an altar to the God who answered me in the day of my distress and has been with me wherever I have gone."" "
