Getting Rid of 'Strange' gods | Genesis 35

In chapter 34 we saw evidence of Jacob sort of letting his family get out of control by allowing his 13-15 year old daughter Dinah go hang out with the Canaanite women. And while she was out there she got taken advantage of by a pagan prince named Shechem. Fromm there the whole situation ended tragically when it could have been avoided had Jacob exercised a little more family discipline. But in this chapter Jacob gets right with God and gets things back in order.
