Genesis chapter 29
29:1 | Then Jacob continued on his journey and came to the land of the eastern peoples.
29:2 | There he saw a well in the field, with three flocks of sheep lying near it because the flocks were watered from that well. The stone over the mouth of the well was large.
29:6 | Then Jacob asked them, "Is he well?Yes, he is," they said, "and here comes his daughter Rachel with the sheep."
29:7 | "Look," he said, "the sun is still high; it is not time for the flocks to be gathered. Water the sheep and take them back to pasture."
29:11 | Then Jacob kissed Rachel and began to weep aloud.
29:12 | He had told Rachel that he was a relative of her father and a son of Rebekah. So she ran and told her father.
29:14 | Then Laban said to him, "You are my own flesh and blood." After Jacob had stayed with him for a whole month,
29:15 | Laban said to him, "Just because you are a relative of mine, should you work for me for nothing? Tell me what your wages should be."
29:16 | Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
29:17 | Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel was lovely in form, and beautiful.
29:20 | So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her.
29:21 | Then Jacob said to Laban, "Give me my wife. My time is completed, and I want to lie with her."
29:22 | So Laban brought together all the people of the place and gave a feast.
29:23 | But when evening came, he took his daughter Leah and gave her to Jacob, and Jacob lay with her.
29:24 | And Laban gave his servant girl Zilpah to his daughter as her maidservant.
29:26 | Laban replied, "It is not our custom here to give the younger daughter in marriage before the older one.
29:28 | And Jacob did so. He finished the week with Leah, and then Laban gave him his daughter Rachel to be his wife.
29:29 | Laban gave his servant girl Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as her maidservant.
29:30 | Jacob lay with Rachel also, and he loved Rachel more than Leah. And he worked for Laban another seven years.
29:31 | When the LORD saw that Leah was not loved, he opened her womb, but Rachel was barren.
29:32 | Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben, for she said, "It is because the LORD has seen my misery. Surely my husband will love me now."
29:33 | She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, "Because the LORD heard that I am not loved, he gave me this one too." So she named him Simeon.
29:34 | Again she conceived, and when she gave birth to a son she said, "Now at last my husband will become attached to me, because I have borne him three sons." So he was named Levi.
29:35 | She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, "This time I will praise the LORD." So she named him Judah. Then she stopped having children.
