Jacob had fooled his father Isaac, orchestrated by his mother Rebecca for the blessing that was due to Esau her firstborn.

Jacob had not only grabbed his brothers heel at birth, his inheritance, but now his brother's blessings from Isaac. Now he grabs his shoes and runs for his life.
On his journey to Laban, God speaks to Jacob a word that would forever change his life. At sundown he goes to sleep. He dreams of a stairway that reaches from earth up to heaven. Angles of God are going up and down the stairway. God speaks and says, "Jacob I am giving you and your descendants this land. The ground you're lying on belongs to you. All of the families of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants. I will protect you and one day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised."
