Name given by Jacob to the place of the altar which he built at Beth-el to God who appeared to him when he fled from Esau. Beth-el signifies 'House of God,' and on his return to that place he received the revelation of God's name, Almighty (compare Genesis 32:29 ), and worshipped the 'God of Beth-el,' "because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother." Genesis 35:7 .
