12 (A)He had a dream, and behold, a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven; and behold, (B)the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. 13 And behold, (C)the Lord stood [a]above it and said, “I am the Lord, (D)the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it (E)to you and to (F)your [b]descendants. 14 Your [c]descendants will also be like (G)the dust of the earth, and you will [d]spread out (H)to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and (I)in you and in your [e]descendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
