“El Bethel.” The phrase means “God of the house of God.” The word “beth” means “house” (e.g. Bethlehem means “house of bread”) and “el” means God.

“Deborah.” She had been with Rebekah her whole life, and is mentioned in Genesis 24:59.

Gen 35:12

“the land that I gave.” This is the second time God promises the land to Jacob and his descendants; the first was Genesis 28:13. God repeated the promise that He would give the land of Israel to Abraham and his descendants many times, and said it in slightly different ways. He told Abraham that he and his descendants would get the land (Gen. 12:7; 13:15-17; 15:7, 18; 17:8). He told it to Isaac (Gen. 26:3). He told it to Jacob (Gen. 28:13; 35:12; 48:4). Then over and over He told Israel about the promise or that He would give them the land (cp. Exod. 6:4, 8; 12:25; 13:5, 11; Lev. 14:34; 20:24; 23:10; 25:2). [For more on the promise God made to give the land to Abraham and his descendants, see commentary on Genesis 15:18].

Gen 35:14

“set up a standing-stone.” This is the third standing-stone that Jacob erected. His first was a small one at Bethel (Gen. 28:18.) His second was when he made a covenant with Laban (Gen. 31:45). Now his third he erects back in Bethel, and although the Bible does not describe it, it almost certainly would have been larger than the first one he erected there. 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].

“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].

“breathed his last.” The Hebrew verb translated “breathed his last” is gava (#01478 גָּוַע), and it refers to dying (see commentary on Gen. 25:8, “breathed his last”).
