Map of Jacob’s Journey to Haran and Back

Follow Jacob:

1. Jacob set out in haste from Beersheba and camped at Bethel (formerly Luz) before continuing on to Paddan-aram (Genesis 28:10-29:1). 

2. Jacob served in Laban’s house for 20 years before fleeing back to Canaan (Genesis 31:1-21).

3. Laban caught up with Jacob in the hill country of Gilead. Then Jacob came to Peniel where he wrestled with God (Genesis 31:22-32:31).

4. Esau came up from Seir and met Jacob in peace; Jacob then continued on as far as Shechem (Genesis 33).
