14 And your offspring will be like the dust of the earth. You will spread abroad to the West, and to the East, and to the North, and to the Meridian. And in you and in your offspring, all the tribes of the earth shall be blessed.
15 And I will be your guardian wherever you will journey, and I will bring you back into this land. Neither will I dismiss you, until I have accomplished all that I have said.'
16 And when Jacob had awakened from sleep, he said, 'Truly, the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.'
17 And being terrified, he said: 'How terrible this place is! This is nothing other than the house of God and the gateway of heaven.'
