1 = Genesis


The story in Genesis where Jacob is given land is the dream at Bethel.

1Isaac called Jacob and blessed him and commanded him and said to him, You will not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. 2Arise, go to Padan of Aram to the house of Bethuel the father of your mother and take for yourself a wife from there of the daughters of Laban the brother of your mother. 3May god FE almighty bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you that you may become a multitude of peoples 4and give the blessings of Abraham to you and to your seed with you that you may inherit the land in which you live which god gave to Abraham. Genesis 28:1-4FE 5Isaac sent Jacob away and he went to Padan of Aram to Laban son of Bethuel the Aramean the brother of Rebekah the mother of Jacob and of Esau. 6Esau saw that Isaac had blessed his brother Jacob and sent him away to Padan of Aram to take for himself a wife from there and that as he blessed him he commanded him saying, You will not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan, 7and that Jacob listened to his father and to his mother and went to Padan of Aram. FE 8Esau saw that Isaac his father despised the daughters of Canaan. 9Then Esau went to Ishmael and took Basemath daughter of Ishmael son of Abraham the sister of Nebaioth over his other wives to be his wife. Genesis 28:5-910Jacob went FE out from Beer Sheba on his way to Haran. 11He arrived at a certain place and spent the night there because the sun was set. He took of the stones of the place and put them for his pillows and lay down in that place to sleep. 12He dreamed and saw a ladder was set on the land and the top of it reached to the skies and the kings of god K Genesis 21:3 K Genesis 24:15 were ascending and descending on it. A John 1:51 Genesis 28:10-1213The Master stood above it and said, I am the god of your father Abraham and the god of Isaac. The land on which you are lying I will give to you and to your seed. 14Your seed will be as numerous as the dust of the land and you will spread abroad to the east and west and north and south. In you all the families of the land will be blessed and in your seed. 15I am with you and will preserve you wherever you go and will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done the thing of which I spoke to you. Genesis 28:13-1516Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, Surely the Master is in this place and I did not know it. Genesis 28:1617He was exceedingly fearful and said, How awesome is this place today? This is none other but the house of god and this is his gate of the skies. Genesis 28:17 (Genesis 28:1-17 BRB)

Who is the shepherd referenced in Ezekiel? Yahvah is the one looking after Jacob and his descendants.
