Jacob set up a marker 1 over her grave; it is 2 the Marker of Rachel’s Grave to this day.
They demolished 1 the sacred pillar of Baal and 2 the temple of Baal; it is used as 3 a latrine 4 to this very day.
So Jacob set up a sacred stone pillar in the place where God spoke with him. 1 He poured out a drink offering on it, and then he poured oil on it. 2
He did evil in the sight of 1 the Lord, but not to the same degree as his father and mother. He did remove the sacred pillar of Baal that his father had made.
Even if only a tenth of the people remain in the land, it will again be destroyed, 1 like one of the large sacred trees 2 or an Asherah pole, when a sacred pillar on a high place is thrown down. 3 That sacred pillar symbolizes the special chosen family.” 4
Prior to this 1 Absalom had set up a monument 2 and dedicated it to himself in the King’s Valley, reasoning “I have no son who will carry on my name.” He named the monument after himself, and to this day it is known as Absalom’s Memorial.
