and behold a well in the field and behold three flocks of sheep lying there by it for out of that well they watered the flocks the stone on the well's mouth was large there all the flocks were gathered they rolled the stone from the well's mouth and watered the sheep and put the stone again on the well's mouth in its place jacob said to them my relatives where are you from they said we're from heron he said to them do you know laban the son of nahor they said we know him he said to them is it well with him they said it is well see rachel his daughter is coming with the sheep he said behold it is still the middle of the day not time to gather the livestock together water the sheep and go and feed them they said we can't until all the flocks are gathered together and they roll the stone from the well's mouth then we water the sheep while he was yet speaking with them rachel came with her father's sheep before she kept them it happened when jacob saw rachel the daughter of laban his mother's brother and the sheep of laban his mother's brother that jacob went near and rolled the stone from the well's mouth and watered the flock of laban his mother's brother jacob kissed rachel and lifted up his voice and wept jacob told rachel that he was her father's brother and that he was rebecca's son she ran and told her father it happened when laban heard the news of jacob his sister's son that he ran to meet jacob and embraced him and kissed him and brought him to his house jacob told laban all these things laban said to him surely you are my bone and my flesh he lived with him for a month laban said to jacob because you are my brother should you therefore serve me for nothing tell me what will your wages be laban had two daughters the name of the elder was leah and the name of the younger was rachel leah's eyes were weak but rachel was beautiful in form and attractive jacob loved rachel he said i will serve you for seven years for rachel your younger daughter laban said it is better that i give her to you than i should give her to another man stay with me jacob served seven years for rachel they seemed to him but a few days for the love he had for her jacob said to laban give me my wife for my days are fulfilled then i may go into her laban gathered together all of the men of that place and made a feast it happened in the evening that he took leah his daughter and brought her to him he went into her laban gave zolpa his handmaid to his daughter leah for a handmaid it happened in the morning that behold it was leah he said to laban what is this you have done to me didn't i serve you for rachel why then have you deceived me laban said it has not done so in our place to give the younger before the firstborn fulfill the week of this one and we will give you the other also for the service which you will serve with me yet seven other years jacob did so and fulfilled her weak he gave him rachel his daughter his wife laban gave to rachel his daughter billa his handmaid to be her handmaid he went in also to rachel and he loved also rachel more than leah and served with him yet seven other years yahweh saw that leah was hated and he opened her womb but rachel was barren leah conceived and bore a son and she named him reuben for she said because yahweh has looked at my affliction for now my husband will love me she conceived again and bore a son and said because yahweh has heard that i am hated he has therefore given me this son also she named him simeon she conceived again and bore a son said now this time my husband will be joined to me because i have borne him three sons therefore his name was called levi she conceived again and bore a son she said this time i will praise yahweh therefore she named him judah then she stopped bearing chapter 30 when rachel saw that she bore jacob no children rachel envied her sister she said to jacob give me children or else i will die jacob's anger was kindled against rachel and he said am i in god's place who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb she said behold my maiden billa go into her that she may bear on my knees and i also may obtain children by her she gave him billa her handmaid as a wife and jacob went into her billa conceived and bore jacob his son rachel said god has judged me and has also heard my voice and has given me a son therefore called she has named dan billah rachel's handmaid conceived again and bore jacob his second son rachel said with mighty wrestlings have i wrestled with my sister and have prevailed she named him naftali when leah saw that she had finished bearing she took zilpah her handmaid and gave her to jacob as a wife zilpah leah's handmaid bore jacob the son leah said how fortunate she named him gad zilpah leah's handmaid bore jacob a second son leah said happy am i for the daughters will call me happy she named him asher reuben went in the days of wheat harvest and found mandrakes in the field and brought them to his mother leah then rachel said to leah please give me some of your son's mandrakes she said to her is it a small matter that you have taken away my husband would you take away my son's mandrakes also rachel said therefore he will lie with you tonight for your son's mandrakes jacob came in from the field that evening and leah went out to meet him and said you must come into me for i have surely hired you with my son's mandrakes he lay with her that night god listened to leah and she conceived and bore jacob a fifth son leah said god has given me my hire because i gave my handmaid to my husband she named him issachar leah conceived again and bore a sick son to jacob leah said god has endowed me with a good dowry now my husband will live with me because i have borne him six sons she named him zebulun afterwards she bore a daughter and named her dinah god remembered rachel and god listened to her and opened her womb she conceived bore a son and said god has taken away my reproach she named him joseph saying may yahweh add another son to me it happened when rachel had borne joseph that jacob said to laban send me away that i may go to my own place into my country give me my wives and my children for whom i have served you and let me go for you know my service with which i have served you laban said to him if now i have found favor in your eyes stay here for i have divine that yahweh has blessed me for your sake he said appoint your wages and i will give it he said to him you know how i have served you and how your livestock had fared with me for it was little which you had before i came and it has increased to a multitude yahweh has blessed you wherever i turned now when will i provide for my own house also he said what shall i give you jacob said you shall not give me anything if you will do this thing for me i will again feed your flock and keep it i will pass through all your flock today removing from there every speckled and spotted one and every black one among the sheep and the spotted and speckled among the goats this will be my hire so my righteousness will answer for me hereafter when you come concerning my hire that is before you everyone that is not speckled and spotted among the goats and black among the sheep that might be with me will be counted stolen laban said behold let it be according to your word that day he removed the male goats that were streaked and spotted and all the female ghosts that were speckled and spotted one that had white in it and all the black ones among the sheep and gave them into the hands of his sons he set three days journey between himself and jacob and jacob fed the rest of laban's flocks jacob took to himself rods a fresh poplar almond plain tree peeled white streaks in them and made

flock of laban and he put his own droves apart and didn't put them into laban's flock it happened whenever the stronger of the flock conceived that jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the flock in the gutters that they might conceive among the rods but when the flock was feeble he didn't put them in so the feebler were labans and the stronger jacobs the man increased exceedingly and had large flocks female servants and male servants and camels and donkeys chapter 31 he heard the words of laban's son saying jacob has taken away all that was our father's from that which was our fathers has
