Genesis 35: 16-20 PDF Print E-mail

Then they departed from Bethel; but while they still had some distance to go on the way to Ephrath, Rachel began to be in labor and to suffer great distress. When her pangs were most severe, her midwife said to her, "Have no fear! This time, too, you have a son." With her last breath--for she was at the point of death-she called him Ben-oni; his father, however, named him Benjamin. Thus Rachel died; and she was buried on the road to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem). Jacob set up a memorial stone on her grave, and the same monument marks Rachel's grave to this day.
