1 H3290 Then Jacob H5375 [H8799] went on H7272 his journey H3212 [H8799] , and came H776 into the land H1121 of the people H6924 of the east.
2 H7200 [H8799] And he looked H875 , and behold a well H7704 in the field H7969 , and, lo, there were three H5739 flocks H6629 of sheep H7257 [H8802] lying H875 by it; for out of that well H8248 [H8686] they watered H5739 the flocks H1419 : and a great H68 stone H875 was upon the well's H6310 mouth.
3 H5739 And there were all the flocks H622 [H8738] gathered H1556 [H8804] : and they rolled H68 the stone H875 from the well's H6310 mouth H8248 [H8689] , and watered H6629 the sheep H7725 0 , and put H68 the stone H7725 [H8689] again H875 upon the well's H6310 mouth H4725 in its place.
4 H3290 And Jacob H559 [H8799] said H251 to them, My brethren H370 , from where H559 [H8799] are ye? And they said H2771 , We are from Haran.
5 H559 [H8799] And he said H3045 [H8804] to them, Know H3837 ye Laban H1121 the son H5152 of Nahor H559 [H8799] ? And they said H3045 [H8804] , We know him.
6 H559 [H8799] And he said H7965 to them, Is he well H559 [H8799] ? And they said H7965 , He is well H7354 : and, behold, Rachel H1323 his daughter H935 [H8802] cometh H6629 with the sheep.
7 H559 [H8799] And he said H2005 , Lo H1419 , it is yet high H3117 day H6256 , neither is it time H4735 that the cattle H622 [H8736] should be gathered together H8248 [H8685] : water H6629 ye the sheep H3212 [H8798] , and go H7462 [H8798] and feed them.
8 H559 [H8799] And they said H3201 [H8799] , We cannot H5739 , until all the flocks H622 [H8735] are gathered together H1556 [H8804] , and till they roll H68 the stone H875 from the well's H6310 mouth H8248 [H8689] ; then we water H6629 the sheep.
9 H5750 And while he was yet H1696 [H8764] speaking H7354 with them, Rachel H935 [H8804] came H1 with her father's H6629 sheep H7462 [H8802] : for she kept them.
10 H3290 And it came to pass, when Jacob H7200 [H8804] saw H7354 Rachel H1323 the daughter H3837 of Laban H517 his mother's H251 brother H6629 , and the sheep H3837 of Laban H517 his mother's H251 brother H3290 , that Jacob H5066 [H8799] went near H1556 [H8686] , and rolled H68 the stone H875 from the well's H6310 mouth H8248 [H8686] , and watered H6629 the flock H3837 of Laban H517 his mother's H251 brother.
11 H3290 And Jacob H5401 [H8799] kissed H7354 Rachel H5375 [H8799] , and lifted up H6963 his voice H1058 [H8799] , and wept.
12 H3290 And Jacob H5046 [H8686] told H7354 Rachel H1 that he was her father's H251 brother H7259 , and that he was Rebekah's H1121 son H7323 [H8799] : and she ran H5046 [H8686] and told H1 her father.
13 H3837 And it came to pass, when Laban H8085 [H8800] heard H8088 the tidings H3290 of Jacob H269 his sister's H1121 son H7323 [H8799] , that he ran H7125 [H8800] to meet H2263 [H8762] him, and embraced H5401 [H8762] him, and kissed H935 [H8686] him, and brought H1004 him to his house H5608 [H8762] . And he told H3837 Laban H1697 all these things.
14 H3837 And Laban H559 [H8799] said H389 to him, Surely H6106 thou art my bone H1320 and my flesh H3427 [H8799] . And he abode H3117 with him the space H2320 of a month.
15 H3837 And Laban H559 [H8799] said H3290 to Jacob H251 , Because thou art my brother H5647 [H8804] , shouldest thou therefore serve H2600 me for nothing H5046 [H8685] ? tell H4909 me, what shall thy wages be?
16 H3837 And Laban H8147 had two H1323 daughters H8034 : the name H1419 of the elder H3812 was Leah H8034 , and the name H6996 of the younger H7354 was Rachel.
17 H3812 Leah H7390 was tender H5869 eyed H7354 ; but Rachel H3303 H8389 was beautiful H3303 and well H4758 favoured.
18 H3290 And Jacob H157 [H8799] loved H7354 Rachel H559 [H8799] ; and said H5647 [H8799] , I will serve H7651 thee seven H8141 years H7354 for Rachel H6996 thy younger H1323 daughter.
19 H3837 And Laban H559 [H8799] said H2896 , It is better H5414 [H8800] that I give H5414 [H8800] her to thee, than that I should give H312 her to another H376 man H3427 [H8798] : abide with me.
20 H3290 And Jacob H5647 [H8799] served H7651 seven H8141 years H7354 for Rachel H5869 ; and they seemed H259 to him but a few H3117 days H160 , for the love he had for her.
21 H3290 And Jacob H559 [H8799] said H3837 to Laban H3051 [H8798] , Give H802 me my wife H3117 , for my days H4390 [H8804] are fulfilled H935 [H8799] , that I may go in to her.
22 H3837 And Laban H622 [H8799] gathered together H582 all the men H4725 of the place H6213 [H8799] , and made H4960 a feast.
23 H6153 And it came to pass in the evening H3947 [H8799] , that he took H3812 Leah H1323 his daughter H935 [H8686] , and brought H935 [H8799] her to him; and he went in to her.
24 H3837 And Laban H5414 [H8799] gave H1323 to his daughter H3812 Leah H2153 Zilpah H8198 his maid H8198 for an handmaid.
25 H1242 And it came to pass, that in the morning H3812 , behold, it was Leah H559 [H8799] : and he said H3837 to Laban H6213 [H8804] , What is this thou hast done H5647 [H8804] to me? did I not serve H7354 with thee for Rachel H7411 [H8765] ? why then hast thou deceived me?
26 H3837 And Laban H559 [H8799] said H6213 [H8735] , It must not be so done H4725 in our country H5414 [H8800] , to give H6810 the younger H6440 before H1067 the firstborn.
27 H4390 [H8761] Fulfil H2063 her H7620 week H5414 [H8799] , and we will give H5656 thee this also for the service H5647 [H8799] which thou shalt serve H7651 with me yet seven H312 other H8141 years.
28 H3290 And Jacob H6213 [H8799] did H4390 [H8762] so, and fulfilled H7620 her week H5414 [H8799] : and he gave H7354 him Rachel H1323 his daughter H802 for a wife also.
29 H3837 And Laban H5414 [H8799] gave H7354 to Rachel H1323 his daughter H1090 Bilhah H8198 his handmaid H8198 to be her maid.
30 H935 [H8799] And he went in H7354 also to Rachel H157 [H8799] , and he loved H7354 also Rachel H3812 more than Leah H5647 [H8799] , and served H7651 with him yet seven H312 other H8141 years.
31 H3068 And when the LORD H7200 [H8799] saw H3812 that Leah H8130 [H8803] was hated H6605 [H8799] , he opened H7358 her womb H7354 : but Rachel H6135 was barren.
32 H3812 And Leah H2029 [H8799] conceived H3205 [H8799] , and bore H1121 a son H7121 [H8799] , and she called H8034 his name H7205 Reuben H3588 : for H559 [H8804] she said H3588 , Surely H3068 the LORD H7200 [H8804] hath looked H6040 upon my affliction H3588 ; now therefore H376 my husband H157 [H8799] will love me.
33 H2029 [H8799] And she conceived H3205 [H8799] again, and bore H1121 a son H559 [H8799] ; and said H3068 , Because the LORD H8085 [H8804] hath heard H8130 [H8803] that I was hated H5414 [H8799] , he hath therefore given H7121 [H8799] me this son also: and she called H8034 his name H8095 Simeon.
34 H2029 [H8799] And she conceived again H3205 [H8799] , and bore H1121 a son H559 [H8799] ; and said H6471 , Now this time H376 will my husband H3867 [H8735] love H3205 [H8804] me, because I have borne H7969 him three H1121 sons H8034 : therefore was his name H7121 [H8804] called H3878 Levi.
