12 In a dream he saw a ladder[a] that reached from earth to heaven, and God’s angels were going up and down on it.

13 The Lord was standing beside the ladder[b] and said:

I am the Lord God who was worshiped by Abraham and Isaac. I will give to you and your family the land on which you are now sleeping. 14 Your descendants will spread over the earth in all directions and will become as numerous as the specks of dust. Your family will be a blessing to all people.[c]
