Genesis chapter 29
29:1 | And Jacob lifted his feet and went to the land of the sons of the east.
29:4 | And Jacob said to them, My brothers, where are you from? And they said, We are from Haran.
29:5 | And he said to them, Do you know Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him.
29:6 | And he said to them, Is he well? And they said, He is well. And, behold, his daughter Rachel comes with the sheep.
29:7 | And he said, Lo, the day is yet high. It is not yet time for gathering the cattle together. Water the sheep, and go feed them.
29:11 | And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice and wept.
29:14 | And Laban said to him, Surely you are my bone and my flesh. And he stayed with him for a month.
29:15 | And Laban said to Jacob, Because you are my brother, should you then serve me for nothing? Tell me, what shall be your wages?
29:16 | And Laban had two daughters. The name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
29:17 | And Leah was weak of eyes, but Rachel was beautiful and well-favored.
29:18 | And Jacob loved Rachel, and said, I will serve you seven years for Rachel your younger daughter.
29:19 | And Laban said, It is better that I give her to you than that I should give her to another man. Stay with me.
29:20 | And Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed to him a few days, for the love he had for her.
29:21 | And Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, so that I may go in to her.
29:22 | And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.
29:23 | And it happened in the evening, he took his daughter Leah and brought her to him. And he went in to her.
29:24 | And Laban gave Zilpah his slave woman to his daughter Leah for a handmaid.
29:25 | And it happened in the morning, behold, it was Leah! And he said to Laban, What is this you have done to me? Did I not serve with you for Rachel? Why then have you tricked me?
29:26 | And Laban said, It must not be done so in our country, to give the younger before the first-born.
29:27 | Fulfill her week, and we will give you this one also for the service which you shall serve with me still another seven 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 Bilhah his slave woman to his daughter Rachel, to be her handmaid.
29:30 | And he also went in to Rachel. He also loved Rachel more than Leah, and served with him still seven more years.
29:31 | And when Jehovah saw that Leah was hated, even He opened her womb. But Rachel was barren.
29:32 | And Leah conceived and bore a son. And she called his name Reuben, for she said, Surely Jehovah has looked upon my afflictions. Now therefore my husband will love me.
29:33 | And she conceived again, and bore a son, and said, Because Jehovah has heard that I was hated, He has therefore given me this son also. And she called his name Simeon.
29:34 | And she conceived again, and bore a son, and said, Now this time my husband will return to me, because I have borne him three sons. Therefore his name was called Levi.
29:35 | And she conceived again, and bore a son; and she said, This time I will praise Jehovah. Therefore she called his name Judah, and quit bearing.
