Genesis chapter 29
29:1 | Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.
29:4 | And Jacob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? And they said, Of Haran are we.
29:5 | And he said unto them, Know ye Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him.
29:6 | And he said unto them, Is he well? And they said, He is well: and, behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.
29:7 | And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and feed them.
29:11 | And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.
29:14 | And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my flesh. And he abode with him the space of a month.
29:15 | And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be?
29:16 | And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
29:17 | Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured.
29:18 | And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.
29:19 | And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.
29:20 | And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.
29:21 | And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.
29:22 | And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.
29:23 | And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.
29:24 | And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid.
29:25 | And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?
29:26 | And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.
29:27 | Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.
29:28 | And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.
29:29 | And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid.
29:30 | And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.
29:31 | And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.
29:32 | And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the LORD hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.
29:33 | And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the LORD hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.
29:34 | And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.
29:35 | And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.
