Go Back to Bethel

And God said unto Jacob, “Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.”
Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, “Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments: and let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.”
And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.   And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.   So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Bethel, he and all the people that were with him.   And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel: because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.                 Genesis 35:1-7
