Chapter 28

28:9  Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

Mahalath

Genesis 36:3 is called Bashemath:

28:10  And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

And Jacob went out

Bethel becomes, because of Jacob's vision there, one of the significant places of Scripture. To the Christian it stands for a realization, however imperfect, of the heavenly and spiritual contents of faith, answering to Paul's prayer in Ephesians 1:17-23. Dispensationally, the scene speaks of Israel the nation, cast out of the Land of Promise because of evil-doing there, but holding the promise of restoration and blessing ; Genesis 28:15; Deuteronomy 30:1-10. To "an Israelite indeed" Christ speaks of Jacob's vision as to be fulfilled in the Son of man (cf) ; Genesis 28:12; John 1:47-51.

28:12  And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

angels

(See Scofield "Hebrews 1:4") .

28:19  And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

Bethel

i.e. the house of God. Cf. Genesis 35:7.
