Jacob set up a standing-stone on her grave, which is the standing-stone marking of Rachel’s grave to this day. Bible

“Jacob set up a standing-stone on her grave.” This is the fourth standing-stone that Jacob set up. His first was a small one at Bethel (Gen. 28:18.) His second was when he made a covenant with Laban (Gen. 31:45). His third was when he went back to Bethel (Gen. 35:14). He erected a fouth standing-stone over Rachel’s grave, no doubt as a memorial for her (Gen. 35:20). [For more on standing-stones, see commentary on Gen. 28:18].
