Genesis 29:1-35

Then Jacob
<03290>
went on
<05375> (8799)
his journey
<07272>_,
and came
<03212> (8799)
into the land
<0776>
of the people
<01121>
of the east
<06924>_.
{went...: Heb. lift up his feet} {people: Heb. children}
And he looked
<07200> (8799)_,
and behold a well
<0875>
in the field
<07704>_,
and, lo, there [were] three
<07969>
flocks
<05739>
of sheep
<06629>
lying
<07257> (8802)
by it; for out of that well
<0875>
they watered
<08248> (8686)
the flocks
<05739>_:
and a great
<01419>
stone
<068>
[was] upon the well's
<0875>
mouth
<06310>_.
And thither were all the flocks
<05739>
gathered
<0622> (8738)_:
and they rolled
<01556> (8804)
the stone
<068>
from the well's
<0875>
mouth
<06310>_,
and watered
<08248> (8689)
the sheep
<06629>_,
and put
<07725> (0)
the stone
<068>
again
<07725> (8689)
upon the well's
<0875>
mouth
<06310>
in his place
<04725>_.
And Jacob
<03290>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, My brethren
<0251>_,
whence
<0370>
[be] ye? And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Of Haran
<02771>
[are] we.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Know
<03045> (8804)
ye Laban
<03837>
the son
<01121>
of Nahor
<05152>_?
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
We know
<03045> (8804)
[him].
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, [Is] he well
<07965>_?
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
[He is] well
<07965>_:
and, behold, Rachel
<07354>
his daughter
<01323>
cometh
<0935> (8802)
with the sheep
<06629>_.
{Is he...: Heb. Is there peace to him?}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Lo
<02005>_,
[it is] yet high
<01419>
day
<03117>_,
neither [is it] time
<06256>
that the cattle
<04735>
should be gathered together
<0622> (8736)_:
water
<08248> (8685)
ye the sheep
<06629>_,
and go
<03212> (8798)
[and] feed
<07462> (8798)
[them]. {it is...: Heb. yet the day is great}
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
We cannot
<03201> (8799)_,
until all the flocks
<05739>
be gathered together
<0622> (8735)_,
and [till] they roll
<01556> (8804)
the stone
<068>
from the well's
<0875>
mouth
<06310>_;
then we water
<08248> (8689)
the sheep
<06629>_.
And while he yet
<05750>
spake
<01696> (8764)
with them, Rachel
<07354>
came
<0935> (8804)
with her father's
<01>
sheep
<06629>_:
for she kept them
<07462> (8802)_.
And it came to pass, when Jacob
<03290>
saw
<07200> (8804)
Rachel
<07354>
the daughter
<01323>
of Laban
<03837>
his mother's
<0517>
brother
<0251>_,
and the sheep
<06629>
of Laban
<03837>
his mother's
<0517>
brother
<0251>_,
that Jacob
<03290>
went near
<05066> (8799)_,
and rolled
<01556> (8686)
the stone
<068>
from the well's
<0875>
mouth
<06310>_,
and watered
<08248> (8686)
the flock
<06629>
of Laban
<03837>
his mother's
<0517>
brother
<0251>_.
And Jacob
<03290>
kissed
<05401> (8799)
Rachel
<07354>_,
and lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his voice
<06963>_,
and wept
<01058> (8799)_.
And Jacob
<03290>
told
<05046> (8686)
Rachel
<07354>
that he [was] her father's
<01>
brother
<0251>_,
and that he [was] Rebekah's
<07259>
son
<01121>_:
and she ran
<07323> (8799)
and told
<05046> (8686)
her father
<01>_.
And it came to pass, when Laban
<03837>
heard
<08085> (8800)
the tidings
<08088>
of Jacob
<03290>
his sister's
<0269>
son
<01121>_,
that he ran
<07323> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
him, and embraced
<02263> (8762)
him, and kissed
<05401> (8762)
him, and brought
<0935> (8686)
him to his house
<01004>_.
And he told
<05608> (8762)
Laban
<03837>
all these things
<01697>_.
{tidings: Heb. hearing}
And Laban
<03837>
said
<0559> (8799)
to him, Surely
<0389>
thou [art] my bone
<06106>
and my flesh
<01320>_.
And he abode
<03427> (8799)
with him the space
<03117>
of a month
<02320>_.
{the space...: Heb. a month of days}
And Laban
<03837>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jacob
<03290>_,
Because thou [art] my brother
<0251>_,
shouldest thou therefore serve
<05647> (8804)
me for nought
<02600>_?
tell
<05046> (8685)
me, what [shall] thy wages
<04909>
[be]?
And Laban
<03837>
had two
<08147>
daughters
<01323>_:
the name
<08034>
of the elder
<01419>
[was] Leah
<03812>_,
and the name
<08034>
of the younger
<06996>
[was] Rachel
<07354>_.
Leah
<03812>
[was] tender
<07390>
eyed
<05869>_;
but Rachel
<07354>
was beautiful
<03303> <08389>
and well
<03303>
favoured
<04758>_.
And Jacob
<03290>
loved
<0157> (8799)
Rachel
<07354>_;
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will serve
<05647> (8799)
thee seven
<07651>
years
<08141>
for Rachel
<07354>
thy younger
<06996>
daughter
<01323>_.
And Laban
<03837>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[It is] better
<02896>
that I give
<05414> (8800)
her to thee, than that I should give
<05414> (8800)
her to another
<0312>
man
<0376>_:
abide
<03427> (8798)
with me.
And Jacob
<03290>
served
<05647> (8799)
seven
<07651>
years
<08141>
for Rachel
<07354>_;
and they seemed
<05869>
unto him [but] a few
<0259>
days
<03117>_,
for the love he had
<0160>
to her.
And Jacob
<03290>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Laban
<03837>_,
Give
<03051> (8798)
[me] my wife
<0802>_,
for my days
<03117>
are fulfilled
<04390> (8804)_,
that I may go in
<0935> (8799)
unto her.
And Laban
<03837>
gathered together
<0622> (8799)
all the men
<0582>
of the place
<04725>_,
and made
<06213> (8799)
a feast
<04960>_.
And it came to pass in the evening
<06153>_,
that he took
<03947> (8799)
Leah
<03812>
his daughter
<01323>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
her to him; and he went in
<0935> (8799)
unto her.
And Laban
<03837>
gave
<05414> (8799)
unto his daughter
<01323>
Leah
<03812>
Zilpah
<02153>
his maid
<08198>
[for] an handmaid
<08198>_.
And it came to pass, that in the morning
<01242>_,
behold, it [was] Leah
<03812>_:
and he said
<0559> (8799)
to Laban
<03837>_,
What [is] this thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
unto me? did not I serve
<05647> (8804)
with thee for Rachel
<07354>_?
wherefore then hast thou beguiled
<07411> (8765)
me?
And Laban
<03837>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
It must not be so done
<06213> (8735)
in our country
<04725>_,
to give
<05414> (8800)
the younger
<06810>
before
<06440>
the firstborn
<01067>_.
{country: Heb. place}
Fulfil
<04390> (8761)
her
<02063>
week
<07620>_,
and we will give
<05414> (8799)
thee this also for the service
<05656>
which thou shalt serve
<05647> (8799)
with me yet seven
<07651>
other
<0312>
years
<08141>_.
And Jacob
<03290>
did
<06213> (8799)
so, and fulfilled
<04390> (8762)
her week
<07620>_:
and he gave
<05414> (8799)
him Rachel
<07354>
his daughter
<01323>
to wife
<0802>
also.
And Laban
<03837>
gave
<05414> (8799)
to Rachel
<07354>
his daughter
<01323>
Bilhah
<01090>
his handmaid
<08198>
to be her maid
<08198>_.
And he went in
<0935> (8799)
also unto Rachel
<07354>_,
and he loved
<0157> (8799)
also Rachel
<07354>
more than Leah
<03812>_,
and served
<05647> (8799)
with him yet seven
<07651>
other
<0312>
years
<08141>_.
And when the LORD
<03068>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that Leah
<03812>
[was] hated
<08130> (8803)_,
he opened
<06605> (8799)
her womb
<07358>_:
but Rachel
<07354>
[was] barren
<06135>_.
And Leah
<03812>
conceived
<02029> (8799)_,
and bare
<03205> (8799)
a son
<01121>_,
and she called
<07121> (8799)
his name
<08034>
Reuben
<07205>_:
for
<03588>
she said
<0559> (8804)_,
Surely
<03588>
the LORD
<03068>
hath looked
<07200> (8804)
upon my affliction
<06040>_;
now therefore
<03588>
my husband
<0376>
will love
<0157> (8799)
me. {Reuben: that is, See a son}
And she conceived
<02029> (8799)
again, and bare
<03205> (8799)
a son
<01121>_;
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Because the LORD
<03068>
hath heard
<08085> (8804)
that I [was] hated
<08130> (8803)_,
he hath therefore given
<05414> (8799)
me this [son] also: and she called
<07121> (8799)
his name
<08034>
Simeon
<08095>_.
{Simeon: that is, Hearing}
And she conceived again
<02029> (8799)_,
and bare
<03205> (8799)
a son
<01121>_;
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Now this time
<06471>
will my husband
<0376>
be joined
<03867> (8735)
unto me, because I have born
<03205> (8804)
him three
<07969>
sons
<01121>_:
therefore was his name
<08034>
called
<07121> (8804)
Levi
<03878>_.
{Levi: that is, Joined}
And she conceived
<02029> (8799)
again, and bare
<03205> (8799)
a son
<01121>_:
and she said
<0559> (8799)_,
Now
<06471>
will I praise
<03034> (8686)
the LORD
<03068>_:
therefore she called
<07121> (8804)
his name
<08034>
Judah
<03063>_;
and left
<05975> (8799)
bearing
<03205> (8800)_.
{Judah: that is, Praise} {left...: Heb. stood from bearing}
