29:28 Jacob did as Laban said. 1  When Jacob 2  completed Leah’s bridal week, 3  Laban gave him his daughter Rachel to be his wife. 4 

1 tn Heb “and Jacob did so.” The words “as Laban said” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

2 tn Heb “and he”; the referent (Jacob) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Heb “the seven of this one.” The referent of “this one” has been specified in the translation as Leah to avoid confusion with Rachel, mentioned later in the verse.

4 tn Heb “and he gave to him Rachel his daughter for him for a wife.” The referent of the pronoun “he” (Laban) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
