Genesis 30

  1 H7354 And when Rachel H7200 [H8799] saw H3205 [H8804] that she bore H3290 Jacob H7354 no children, Rachel H7065 [H8762] envied H269 her sister H559 [H8799] ; and said H3290 to Jacob H3051 [H8798] , Give H1121 me children H369 , or else H4191 [H8801] I die.
  2 H3290 And Jacob's H639 anger H2734 [H8799] was kindled H7354 against Rachel H559 [H8799] : and he said H430 , Am I in God's H4513 [H8804] stead, who hath withheld H6529 from thee the fruit H990 of the womb?
  3 H559 [H8799] And she said H519 , Behold my maid H1090 Bilhah H935 [H8798] , go in H3205 [H8799] to her; and she shall bear H1290 upon my knees H1129 [H8735] , that I may also have children by her.
  4 H5414 [H8799] And she gave H1090 him Bilhah H8198 her handmaid H802 for a wife H3290 : and Jacob H935 [H8799] went in to her.
  5 H1090 And Bilhah H2029 [H8799] conceived H3205 [H8799] , and bore H3290 Jacob H1121 a son.
  6 H7354 And Rachel H559 [H8799] said H430 , God H1777 [H8804] hath judged H8085 [H8804] me, and hath also heard H6963 my voice H5414 [H8799] , and hath given H1121 me a son H7121 [H8804] : therefore she called H8034 his name H1835 Dan.
  7 H1090 And Bilhah H7354 Rachel's H8198 maid H2029 [H8799] conceived H3205 [H8799] again, and bore H3290 Jacob H8145 a second H1121 son.
  8 H7354 And Rachel H559 [H8799] said H430 , With great H5319 wrestlings H6617 [H8738] have I wrestled H269 with my sister H3201 [H8804] , and I have prevailed H7121 [H8799] : and she called H8034 his name H5321 Naphtali.
  9 H3812 When Leah H7200 [H8799] saw H5975 [H8804] that she had stopped H3205 [H8800] bearing H3947 [H8799] , she took H2153 Zilpah H8198 her maid H5414 [H8799] , and gave H3290 her Jacob H802 for a wife.
  10 H2153 And Zilpah H3812 Leah's H8198 maid H3205 [H8799] bore H3290 Jacob H1121 a son.
  11 H3812 And Leah H559 [H8799] said H1409 , A troop H935 [H8804] cometh H7121 [H8799] : and she called H8034 his name H1410 Gad.
  12 H2153 And Zilpah H3812 Leah's H8198 maid H3205 [H8799] bore H3290 Jacob H8145 a second H1121 son.
  13 H3812 And Leah H559 [H8799] said H837 , Happy am I H1323 , for the daughters H833 [H8765] will call me blessed H7121 [H8799] : and she called H8034 his name H836 Asher.
  14 H7205 And Reuben H3212 [H8799] went in H3117 the days H2406 of wheat H7105 harvest H4672 [H8799] , and found H1736 mandrakes H7704 in the field H935 [H8686] , and brought H517 them to his mother H3812 Leah H7354 . Then Rachel H559 [H8799] said H3812 to Leah H5414 [H8798] , Give me H1121 , I pray thee, of thy son's H1736 mandrakes.
  15 H559 [H8799] And she said H4592 to her, Is it a small matter H3947 [H8800] that thou hast taken H376 my husband H3947 [H8800] ? and wouldest thou take away H1121 my son's H1736 mandrakes H7354 also? And Rachel H559 [H8799] said H7901 [H8799] , Therefore he shall lie H3915 with thee to night H8478 for H1121 thy son's H1736 mandrakes.
  16 H3290 And Jacob H935 [H8799] came H7704 from the field H6153 in the evening H3812 , and Leah H3318 [H8799] went out H7125 [H8800] to meet H559 [H8799] him, and said H935 [H8799] , Thou must come in H7936 [H8800] to me; for surely H7936 [H8804] I have hired H1121 thee with my son's H1736 mandrakes H7901 [H8799] . And he lay H3915 with her that night.
  17 H430 And God H8085 [H8799] hearkened H3812 to Leah H2029 [H8799] , and she conceived H3205 [H8799] , and bore H3290 Jacob H2549 the fifth H1121 son.
  18 H3812 And Leah H559 [H8799] said H430 , God H5414 [H8804] hath given H7939 me my hire H834 , because H5414 [H8804] I have given H8198 my maiden H376 to my husband H7121 [H8799] : and she called H8034 his name H3485 Issachar.
  19 H3812 And Leah H2029 [H8799] conceived H3205 [H8799] again, and bore H3290 Jacob H8345 the sixth H1121 son.
  20 H3812 And Leah H559 [H8799] said H430 , God H2064 [H8804] hath bestowed on H2896 me with a good H2065 dowry H6471 ; now H376 will my husband H2082 [H8799] dwell H3205 [H8804] with me, because I have borne H8337 him six H1121 sons H7121 [H8799] : and she called H8034 his name H2074 Zebulun.
  21 H310 And afterwards H3205 [H8804] she bore H1323 a daughter H7121 [H8799] , and called H8034 her name H1783 Dinah.
  22 H430 And God H2142 [H8799] remembered H7354 Rachel H430 , and God H8085 [H8799] hearkened H6605 [H8799] to her, and opened H7358 her womb.
  23 H2029 [H8799] And she conceived H3205 [H8799] , and bore H1121 a son H559 [H8799] ; and said H430 , God H622 [H8804] hath taken away H2781 my reproach:
  24 H7121 [H8799] And she called H8034 his name H3130 Joseph H559 [H8800] ; and said H3068 , The LORD H3254 [H8686] shall add H312 to me another H1121 son.
  25 H7354 And it came to pass, when Rachel H3205 [H8804] had borne H3130 Joseph H3290 , that Jacob H559 [H8799] said H3837 to Laban H7971 [H8761] , Send me away H3212 [H8799] , that I may go H4725 to my own place H776 , and to my country.
  26 H5414 [H8798] Give H802 me my wives H3206 and my children H2004 , for H5647 [H8804] whom I have served H3212 [H8799] thee, and let me go H3045 [H8804] : for thou knowest H5656 my service H5647 [H8804] which I have done thee.
  27 H3837 And Laban H559 [H8799] said H4672 [H8804] to him, I pray thee, if I have found H2580 favour H5869 in thine eyes H5172 [H8765] , tarry: for I have learned by experience H3068 that the LORD H1288 [H8762] hath blessed H1558 me for thy sake.
  28 H559 [H8799] And he said H5344 [H8798] , Appoint H7939 me thy wages H5414 [H8799] , and I will give it.
  29 H559 [H8799] And he said H3045 [H8804] to him, Thou knowest H834 how H5647 [H8804] I have served H834 thee, and how H4735 thy cattle were with me.
  30 H4592 For it was little H6440 which thou hadst before I H6555 [H8799] came, and it is now increased H7230 to a multitude H3068 ; and the LORD H1288 [H8762] hath blessed H7272 thee since my coming H4970 : and now when H6213 [H8799] shall I provide H1004 for my own house also?
  31 H559 [H8799] And he said H5414 [H8799] , What shall I give thee H3290 ? And Jacob H559 [H8799] said H5414 [H8799] , Thou shalt not give H3972 me any thing H6213 [H8799] : if thou wilt do H1697 this thing H7725 [H8799] for me, I will again H7462 [H8799] feed H8104 [H8799] and keep H6629 thy flock:
  32 H5674 [H8799] I will pass H6629 through all thy flock H3117 to day H5493 [H8687] , removing H5348 from there all the speckled H2921 [H8803] and spotted H7716 cattle H2345 , and all the brown H7716 cattle H3775 among the sheep H2921 [H8803] , and the spotted H5348 and speckled H5795 among the goats H7939 : and of such shall be my hire.
  33 H6666 So shall my righteousness H6030 [H8804] answer H3117 for me in time H4279 to come H935 [H8799] , when it shall come H7939 for my hire H6440 before thy face H3605 : every one H5348 that is not speckled H2921 [H8803] and spotted H5795 among the goats H2345 , and brown H3775 among the sheep H1589 [H8803] , that shall be accounted stolen with me.
  34 H3837 And Laban H559 [H8799] said H3863 , Behold, I would it might be H1697 according to thy word.
  35 H5493 [H8686] And he removed H3117 that day H8495 the male goats H6124 that were striped H2921 [H8803] and spotted H5795 , and all the female goats H5348 that were speckled H2921 [H8803] and spotted H3836 , every one that had some white H2345 in it, and all the brown H3775 among the sheep H5414 [H8799] , and gave H3027 them into the hands H1121 of his sons.
  36 H7760 [H8799] And he set H7969 three H3117 days H1870 ' journey H3290 between himself and Jacob H3290 : and Jacob H7462 [H8802] fed H3498 [H8737] the rest H3837 of Laban's H6629 flocks.
  37 H3290 And Jacob H3947 [H8799] took H4731 to him rods H3892 of green H3839 poplar H3869 , and of the hazel H6196 and chesnut tree H6478 [H8762] ; and peeled H3836 white H6479 stripes H3836 in them, and made the white H4286 appear H4731 which was in the rods.
  38 H3322 [H8686] And he set H4731 the rods H6478 [H8765] which he had peeled H5227 before H6629 the flocks H7298 in the gutters H4325 in the watering H8268 troughs H6629 when the flocks H935 [H8799] came H8354 [H8800] to drink H3179 [H8799] , that they should conceive H935 [H8800] when they came H8354 [H8800] to drink.
  39 H6629 And the flocks H3179 [H8799] conceived H4731 before the rods H3205 [H8799] , and brought forth H6629 cattle H6124 striped H5348 , speckled H2921 [H8803] , and spotted.
  40 H3290 And Jacob H6504 [H8689] separated H3775 the lambs H5414 [H8799] , and set H6440 the faces H6629 of the flocks H413 toward H6124 the striped H2345 , and all the brown H6629 in the flock H3837 of Laban H7896 [H8799] ; and he put H5739 his own flocks H7896 [H8804] by themselves, and put H3837 them not with Laban's H6629 cattle.
  41 H7194 [H8794] And it came to pass, whenever the stronger H6629 cattle H3179 [H8763] conceived H3290 , that Jacob H7760 [H8804] laid H4731 the rods H5869 before the eyes H6629 of the cattle H7298 in the gutters H3179 [H8763] , that they might conceive H4731 among the rods.
  42 H6629 But when the cattle H5848 [H8687] were feeble H7760 [H8799] , he put them not in H5848 [H8803] : so the feebler H3837 were Laban's H7194 [H8803] , and the stronger H3290 Jacob's.
  43 H376 And the man H6555 [H8799] increased H3966 exceedingly H7227 , and had many H6629 cattle H8198 , and female H5650 and male servants H1581 , and camels H2543 , and donkeys.
