They got nearly to a place called Ephrath.

Rachel died but she had a son.

Jacob called him Benjamin.

Rachel was buried near Ephrath.

Jacob moved on.

He now had 12 sons.


Jacob came home to his father Isaac’s house.

Isaac lived in Hebron.

Isaac was a very old man. He died.

His sons Jacob and Esau buried him.
