"And he had a dream. He saw a stairway erected on the earth with its top reaching to the heavens. The angels of God were going up and coming down it and the Lord stood at its top. He said, "I am the Lord, the God of your grandfather Abraham and the God of your father Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the ground you are lying on. [.] I will not leave you until I have done what I promised you!" And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said: Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not. And he was afraid, and said: How dreadful is this place! This is none other but the house of Elohim, (or Elohim in his house) and this is the gate of heaven". [.] And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first. ( Genesis 28, 12-19)

"In this place. This is the place of prophecy, as is said: And the Lord said: there is a place b y me. ( Exodus 33, 21) In this place.

"It followed therefore; the Sun is his father , that is, Philosophers Gold. And as in every natural generation, there must be a fit and convenient receptacle , with a certain consonance of similitude to the father: so likewise in this artificial generation, it is requisite that the Sun has a fitted and consonant receptacle for his seed and tincture: and this is Philosophers silver. And therefore it follows, the Moon is his mother ". (Hortulanus, Commentary on the Emerald Tablet)

"I will not give sleep to mine eyes , or slumber to mine eyelids, until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob". (Psalms 132, 4-5)

"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem , coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying: Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them" ( Revelation 21, 1-3)
