10Jacob left Beer-sheba, and went toward Haran.11And he came to a certain place, and stayed there that night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place to sleep.12And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it!13And behold, the LORD stood above it and said, "I am the LORD, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your descendants;14and your descendants shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and by you and your descendants shall all the families of the earth bless themselves.15Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done that of which I have spoken to you."16Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the LORD is in this place; and I did not know it."17And he was afraid, and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven."18So Jacob rose early in the morning, and he took the stone which he had put under his head and set it up for a pillar and poured oil on the top of it.19He called the name of that place Bethel; but the name of the city was Luz at the first.20Then Jacob made a vow, saying, "If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear,21so that I come again to my father's house in peace, then the LORD shall be my God,22and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God's house; and of all that thou givest me I will give the tenth to thee."
Psalms 91:1-4, 14-15
1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, who abides in the shadow of the Almighty,2will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust."3For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence;4he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.14Because he cleaves to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name.15When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will rescue him and honor him.
18While he was thus speaking to them, behold, a ruler came in and knelt before him, saying, "My daughter has just died; but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live."19And Jesus rose and followed him, with his disciples.20And behold, a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment;21for she said to herself, "If I only touch his garment, I shall be made well."22Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, "Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well." And instantly the woman was made well.23And when Jesus came to the ruler's house, and saw the flute players, and the crowd making a tumult,24he said, "Depart; for the girl is not dead but sleeping." And they laughed at him.25But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose.26And the report of this went through all that district.
