God sends Jacob and his people to Bethel - without their foreign gods (Genesis 35:1 - 35:15) - Bible Blender
God appeared to Jacob as he was fleeing from Esau and told him to go to Bethel and settle there. Jacob was instructed to build an altar to God when he arrived. Jacob told his family, “Get rid of your foreign gods, purify yourselves, and change your clothes. Then we will go to Bethel where I will build an altar to God who has been with me wherever I have gone.”
