Treasury of Scripture

And Jacob called the name of the place where God spoke with him, Bethel.

Bethel.

Genesis 28:19
And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.









(15) Jacob called . . . --See Genesis 28:19. The name had, of course, remained unknown and unused, as what then passed had been confined to Jacob's own inward consciousness. He now teaches the name to his family, explains the reason why he first gave it, and requires them to employ it. But with so grand a beginning the town was debased to unholy uses, and from being Beth-el, the house of God, it became Bethaven, the house of iniquity (Hosea 10:5).

Verse 15. - And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel. This name was first given after the dream vision of the ladder (Genesis 28:19); already on this occasion it had been changed into El-beth-el (ver. 7); now its old name is reimposed.
