When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, "Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was not aware of it."
King James Bible
And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.
American Standard Version
And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely Jehovah is in this place. And I knew it not.
Young's Literal Translation
And Jacob awaketh out of his sleep, and saith, 'Surely Jehovah is in this place, and I knew not;'
Genesis 28:16 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The Lord is in this place; and I knew it not - That is, God has made this place his peculiar residence; it is a place in which he meets with and reveals himself to his followers. Jacob might have supposed that this place had been consecrated to God. And it has already been supposed that, his mind having been brought into a humble frame, he was prepared to hold communion with his Maker.
