Description Sinai and Jerusalem; or, Scenes from Bible Lands: Illustrated by Twelve Colored Photographic Views, Including a Panorama of Jerusalem, With Descriptive Letterpress.
Caption BETHEL. description of any town or building there, and that a marked distinction seems to be drawn between the early Canaanite " city " of Luz, and the consecrated "place" of Bethel. When Abraham, after he had been called by God to leave his own country, was journeying southwards through the land of Canaan, we read of his pitching his tent on a mountain to the east of Bethel, and building there an altar unto the Lord (Genesis xii. 8). A famine drove him down to the land of Egypt; but on his return, he again " went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been pitched at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai " (Genesis xiii. 3). Lot was then with him; and it was here that they separated, when Lot chose the plain of Jordan, and Abraham removed to the plain of Mamre, in Hebron. We next read of Bethel as the scene of Jacob's dream, when he had left his father's home at Beersheba, and was journeying towards Haran. It was after this dream of the ladder reaching up to heaven, and of the angels of God ascending and descending on it, that Jacob, awaking out of his sleep, said, " Surely the Lord is in this place, and I knew it not; and he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place ! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven." And he set up as a pillar the stone that he had put for his pillows, and poured oil upon it, and called the name of that place Beth-el (Genesis xxviii.). More than twenty years elapsed before, at the command of God, he returned again from Padan-aram, and came to Bethel with all the people that were with him, and built an altar there. Here it was that God again appeared to him, and changed his name to Israel; and here he buried Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, beneath an oak, which henceforth bore the name of " the oak of tears." The next mention made of Bethel is in connection with the taking of the city of Ai by Joshua, when the men of Bethel appear to have joined with those of Ai in their unsuccessful opposition to the invasion of their country by the children of Israel (Joshua viii.). In the division of the country, Bethel is mentioned as a border city between the tribes of Ephraim and Benjamin; but it does not appear to have been taken possession of until after the death of Joshua (Judges i. 22). In the time of the Judges it became a well-known place of assembly. Deborah, the prophetess,
