He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth , with its top reaching to heaven , and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. There above it stood the LORD, and he said :

“ I am the LORD , the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying

Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth ,
and you will spread out to the west and to the east ,to the north and to the south

All people on earth will be blessed throught you and your offspring.

I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go ,
and i will bring you back to this land

I will not leave you untill I have done what I have promised you. ”

Gen.28:16 When Jacob awake from his sleep , he thought ,

“ Surely the LORD is in this place , and I was not aware of if ”

He was afraid and said , “ How awesome is this place !
This is none other than the house of God ; this is the gate of heaven.”

Early the next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and
set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it.
He called that place Bethel , though the city used to be called Luz.
Then Jacob made a vow,saying,

“ If God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey
I am taking and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear so that i return
safely to my father`s house , then the LORD will be my God
and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God`s house
and of all that you give me I will give you a tenth ”

-Gen . 28 : 12-22-
