Genesis 28 tells us that Isaac, realizing he gave his blessing to Jacob, charges him, as Abraham had charged Isaac, that he not take a Canaanite as a wife, but to go to Rebecca’s brother, Laban, in Syria to take one of his daughters. Esau finds a wife among one of Ishmael’s daughters – now to become doubly outcast from the “chosen.”
Jacob flees to Syria. On the way, one night he has a dream.
