EXT. NECK RIDGE - DAY

Finally Jacob journeys in peace to Shechem (Neck) Ridge in the land of Canaan, [completing his journey south from] from Padan-aram, [the Syrian Highland plateau].

Jacob pitches his tent facing the city, [the so called, "friendly" city of Shalem].

Jacob buys the parcel of the field (where he spreads his tent) from its owner, the sons of DONKEY-MAN, (PRINCE SHECHEM's dad) for 100 pieces of silver.

There, on Shechem ridge, Jacob erects an altar.
