Genesis Chapter 28 Summary

Genesis Chapter 28 Summary Summary

In Genesis chapter 28, Isaac commands his son Jacob not to take a wife from the daughters of Canaan, but instead to take a wife from back home in Mesopotamia as he and his father Abraham did.

Esau saw this that it pleased his parents not to marry the Canaanites as he previously did, and went and took another wife from the daughters of Ishmael.

Jacob begins his journey back to Haran (Padanaram or Ur or Mesopotamia) to take a wife, but on the way God visits him.

Genesis Chapter 28 Summary

First God visited him in a dream with the angels of God going up and down a ladder from the earth to heaven.

The Lord God stood at the top of the ladder and introduces Himself to Jacob. Jacob wakes up scared and tithes a tenth to God for keeping him safe in this journey.

May God add blessings for reading and doing His Word through His Son Jesus Christ. So Be It!
