Genesis chapter 29
29:1 | As Jacob continued on his way to the east,
29:2 | he looked out in a field and saw a well where shepherds took their sheep for water. Three flocks of sheep were lying around the well, which was covered with a large rock.
29:3 | Shepherds would roll the rock away when all their sheep had gathered there. Then after the sheep had been watered, the shepherds would roll the rock back over the mouth of the well.
29:11 | He then kissed Rachel and started crying because he was so happy.
29:12 | He told her that he was the son of her aunt Rebekah, and she ran and told her father about him.
29:13 | As soon as Laban heard the news, he ran out to meet Jacob. He hugged and kissed him and brought him to his home, where Jacob told him everything that had happened.
29:14 | Laban said, "You are my nephew, and you are like one of my own family." After Jacob had been there for a month, Jacob Marries Leah and Rachel
29:20 | Jacob worked seven years for Laban, but the time seemed like only a few days, because he loved Rachel so much.
29:21 | Jacob said to Laban, "The time is up, and I want to marry Rachel now!"
29:22 | So Laban gave a big feast and invited all their neighbors.
29:23 | But that evening he brought Leah to Jacob, who married her and spent the night with her.
29:24 | Laban also gave Zilpah to Leah as her servant woman.
29:26 | Laban replied, "In our country the older daughter must get married first.
29:27 | After you spend this week with Leah, you may also marry Rachel. But you will have to work for me another seven years."
29:28 | At the end of the week of celebration, Laban let Jacob marry Rachel, and he gave her his servant woman Bilhah. Jacob loved Rachel more than he did Leah, but he had to work another seven years for Laban.
29:31 | The LORD knew that Jacob loved Rachel more than he did Leah, and so he gave children to Leah, but not to Rachel.
29:32 | Leah gave birth to a son and named him Reuben, because she said, "The LORD has taken away my sorrow. Now my husband will love me more than he does Rachel."
