Genesis 28

1
And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said to him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.
2
Arise, go to Padan-Aram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father, and take a wife thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother's brother.
3
And the Almighty łGod bless thee, and make thee fruitful and multiply thee, that thou mayest become a company of peoples.
4
And may he give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee and to thy seed with thee, in order that thou mayest possess the land of thy sojourning, which God gave to Abraham!
5
And Isaac sent away Jacob; and he went to Padan-Aram, to Laban the son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebecca, Jacob's and Esau's mother.
6
And Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padan-Aram, to take a wife thence, blessing him, and giving him a charge saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan;
7
and [that] Jacob had obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padan-Aram.
8
And Esau saw that the daughters of Canaan were evil in the sight of Isaac his father.
9
And Esau went to Ishmael, and took, besides the wives that he had, Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebaioth, to be his wife.
10
And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went towards Haran.
11
And he lighted on a certain place, and lodged there, because the sun had set. And he took [one] of the stones of the place, and made [it] his pillow, and lay down in that place.
12
And he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to the heavens. And behold, angels of God ascended and descended upon it.
13
And behold, Jehovah stood above it. And he said, I am Jehovah, the God of Abraham, thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land on which thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed.
14
And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south; and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
15
And behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all [places] to which thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee until I have done what I have spoken to thee of.
16
And Jacob awoke from his sleep, and said, Surely Jehovah is in this place, and I knew [it] not.
17
And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
18
And Jacob rose early in the morning, and took the stone that he had made his pillow, and set it up [for] a pillar, and poured oil on the top of it.
19
And he called the name of that place Beth-el; but the name of that city was Luz at the first.
20
And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and keep me on this road that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and a garment to put on,
21
and I come again to my father's house in peace -- then shall Jehovah be my God.
22
And this stone, which I have set up [for] a pillar, shall be God's house; and of all that thou wilt give me I will without fail give the tenth to thee.


Genesis 29

1
And Jacob continued his journey, and went into the land of the children of the east.
2
And he looked, and behold, there was a well in the fields, and behold there, three flocks of sheep were lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks, and a great stone was at the mouth of the well.
3
And when all the flocks were gathered there, they rolled the stone from the mouth of the well, and watered the sheep, and put the stone again on the mouth of the well in its place.
4
And Jacob said to them, My brethren, whence are ye? And they said, Of Haran are we.
5
And he said to them, Do ye know Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We do know [him].
6
And he said to them, Is he well? And they said, [He is] well; and behold, there comes Rachel his daughter with the sheep.
7
And he said, Behold, it is yet high day; it is not time that the cattle should be gathered together; water the sheep, and go, feed [them].
8
And they said, We cannot until all the flocks are gathered together, and they roll the stone from the mouth of the well, and we water the sheep.
9
While he was still speaking to them, Rachel came with her father's sheep, for she was a shepherdess.
10
And it came to pass 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 mouth of the well, and watered the sheep of Laban his mother's brother.
11
And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice and wept.
12
And Jacob told Rachel that he was a brother of her father, and that he was Rebecca's son; and she ran and told her father.
13
And it came to pass when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister's son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house; and he told Laban all these things.
14
And Laban said to him, Thou art indeed my bone and my flesh. And he abode with him a month's time.
15
And Laban said to Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou serve me for nothing? tell me, what shall be thy wages?
16
And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger, Rachel.
17
And the eyes of Leah were tender; but Rachel was of beautiful form and beautiful countenance.
18
And Jacob loved Rachel, and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.
19
And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.
20
And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they were in his eyes as single days, because he loved her.
21
And Jacob said to Laban, Give [me] my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in to her.
22
And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.
23
And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in to her.
24
And Laban gave to her Zilpah, his maidservant, to be maidservant to Leah his daughter.
25
And it came to pass in the morning, that behold, it was Leah. And he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done to me? Have I not served thee for Rachel? Why then hast thou deceived me?
26
And Laban said, It is not so done in our place, to give the younger before the firstborn.
27
Fulfil the week [with] this one: then we will give thee the other one also, for the service that thou shalt serve me yet seven other years.
28
And Jacob did so, and fulfilled the week [with] this one, and he gave him Rachel his daughter to be his wife.
29
And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter, Bilhah, his maidservant, to be her maidservant.
30
And he went in also to Rachel; and he loved also Rachel more than Leah. And he served with him yet seven other years.
31
And when Jehovah saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb; but Rachel was barren.
32
And Leah conceived, and bore a son, and called his name Reuben; for she said, Because Jehovah has looked upon my affliction; for now my husband will love me.
33
And she again conceived, and bore a son, and said, Because Jehovah has heard that I am hated, he has therefore given me this one also; and she called his name Simeon.
34
And she again conceived, and bore a son, and said, Now this time will my husband be united to me, for I have borne him three sons; therefore was his name called Levi.
35
And she again conceived, and bore a son, and said, This time will I praise Jehovah; therefore she called his name Judah. And she ceased to bear.


Genesis 30

1
And when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said to Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.
2
And Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel, and he said, Am I in God's stead, who has withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?
3
And she said, Behold, there is my maid, Bilhah: go in to her, in order that she may bear on my knees, and I may also be built up by her.
4
And she gave him Bilhah her maidservant as wife, and Jacob went in to her.
5
And Bilhah conceived, and bore Jacob a son.
6
And Rachel said, God has done me justice, and has also heard my voice, and given me a son; therefore she called his name Dan.
7
And Bilhah Rachel's maidservant again conceived, and bore Jacob a second son.
8
And Rachel said, Wrestlings of God have I wrestled with my sister, and have prevailed; and she called his name Naphtali.
9
And when Leah saw that she had ceased to bear, she took Zilpah her maidservant and gave her to Jacob as wife.
10
And Zilpah Leah's maidservant bore Jacob a son.
11
And Leah said, Fortunately! and she called his name Gad.
12
And Zilpah Leah's maidservant bore Jacob a second son.
13
And Leah said, Happy am I; for the daughters will call me blessed! and she called his name Asher.
14
And Reuben went out in the days of wheat-harvest, and found mandrakes in the fields; and he brought them to his mother Leah. And Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy son's mandrakes.
15
And she said to her, Is it [too] little that thou hast taken my husband, that thou wilt take my son's mandrakes also? And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with thee to-night for thy son's mandrakes.
16
And when Jacob came from the fields in the evening, Leah went out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in to me, for indeed I have hired thee with my son's mandrakes. And he lay with her that night.
17
And God hearkened to Leah, and she conceived, and bore Jacob a fifth son.
18
And Leah said, God has given me my hire, because I have given my maidservant to my husband; and she called his name Issachar.
19
And Leah again conceived, and bore Jacob a sixth son;
20
and Leah said, God has endowed me with a good dowry; this time will my husband dwell with me, because I have borne him six sons. And she called his name Zebulun.
21
And afterwards she bore a daughter, and called her name Dinah.
22
And God remembered Rachel, and God listened to her, and opened her womb.
23
And she conceived, and bore a son, and said, God has taken away my reproach.
24
And she called his name Joseph; and said, Jehovah will add to me another son.
25
And it came to pass when Rachel had borne Joseph, that Jacob said to Laban, Send me away, that I may go to my place and to my country.
26
Give [me] my wives for whom I have served thee, and my children; that I may go away, for thou knowest my service which I have served thee.
27
And Laban said to him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes -- I have discovered that Jehovah has blessed me for thy sake.
28
And he said, Appoint to me thy wages, and I will give it.
29
And he said to him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and what thy cattle has become with me.
30
For it was little that thou hadst before me, and it is increased to a multitude, and Jehovah has blessed thee from the time I came; and now, when shall I also provide for my house?
31
And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou shalt not give me anything. If thou doest this for me, I will again feed [and] keep thy flock:
32
I will pass through all thy flock to-day, to remove thence all the speckled and spotted sheep, and all the brown lambs, and the spotted and speckled among the goats; and [that] shall be my hire.
33
And my righteousness shall answer for me hereafter, when thou comest about my hire, before thy face: all that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the lambs, let that be stolen with me.
34
And Laban said, Well, let it be according to thy word.
35
And he removed that day the he-goats that were ringstraked and spotted, and all the she-goats that were speckled and spotted, every one that had white in it, and all the brown among the lambs, and gave [them] into the hand of his sons.
36
And he put three days' journey between himself and Jacob. And Jacob fed the rest of Laban's flock.
37
And Jacob took fresh rods of white poplar, almond-tree, and maple; and peeled off white stripes in them, uncovering the white which was on the rods.
38
And he set the rods which he had peeled before the flock, in the troughs at the watering-places where the flock came to drink, and they were ardent when they came to drink.
39
And the flock was ardent before the rods; and the flock brought forth ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.
40
And Jacob separated the lambs, and set the faces of the flock toward the ringstraked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban; and he made himself separate flocks, and did not put them with Laban's flock.
41
And it came to pass whensoever the strong cattle were ardent, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the flock in the gutters, that they might become ardent among the rods;
42
but when the sheep were feeble, he put [them] not in; so the feeble were Laban's, and the strong Jacob's.
43
And the man increased very, very much, and had much cattle, and bondwomen, and bondmen, and camels, and asses.


Genesis 31

1
And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob has taken away all that was our father's, and of what was our father's he has acquired all this glory.
2
And Jacob saw the countenance of Laban, and behold, it was not toward him as previously.
3
And Jehovah said to Jacob, Return into the land of thy fathers, and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee.
4
And Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the fields to his flock,
5
and said to them, I see your father's countenance, that it is not toward me as previously; but the God of my father has been with me.
6
And you know that with all my power I have served your father.
7
And your father has mocked me, and has changed my wages ten times; but God suffered him not to hurt me.
8
If he said thus; The speckled shall be thy hire, then all the flocks bore speckled; and if he said thus: The ringstraked shall be thy hire, then all the flocks bore ringstraked.
9
And God has taken away the cattle of your father, and given [them] to me.
10
And it came to pass at the time of the ardour of the flocks, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and behold, the rams that leaped upon the flocks were ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.
11
And the Angel of God said to me in a dream, Jacob! And I said, Here am I.
12
And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see: all the rams that leap upon the flock are ringstraked, speckled, and spotted; for I have seen all that Laban does to thee.
13
I am the łGod of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, where thou vowedst a vow to me. Now arise, depart out of this land, and return to the land of thy kindred.
14
And Rachel and Leah answered and said to him, Is there yet any portion or inheritance for us in our father's house?
15
Are we not reckoned of him strangers? for he has sold us, and has even constantly devoured our money.
16
For all the wealth that God has taken from our father is ours and our children's; and now whatever God has said to thee do.
17
And Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives upon camels,
18
and carried away all his cattle, and all his property that he had acquired -- the cattle of his possessions that he had acquired in Padan-Aram, to go to Isaac his father, into the land of Canaan.
19
And Laban had gone to shear his sheep. And Rachel stole the teraphim that [belonged] to her father.
20
And Jacob deceived Laban the Syrian, in that he did not tell him that he fled.
21
And he fled with all that he had; and he rose up and passed over the river, and set his face [toward] mount Gilead.
22
And it was told Laban on the third day that Jacob had fled.
23
And he took his brethren with him, and pursued after him seven days' journey, and overtook him on mount Gilead.
24
And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said to him, Take care thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.
25
And Laban came up with Jacob; and Jacob had pitched his tent on the mountain; Laban also with his brethren pitched on mount Gilead.
26
And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done, that thou hast deceived me, and hast carried away my daughters as captives of war?
27
Why didst thou flee away covertly, and steal away from me, and didst not tell me, that I might have conducted thee with mirth and with songs, with tambour and with harp;
28
and hast not suffered me to kiss my sons and my daughters? Now thou hast acted foolishly.
29
It would be in the power of my hand to do you hurt; but the God of your father spoke to me last night, saying, Take care that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.
30
And now that thou must needs be gone, because thou greatly longedst after thy father's house, why hast thou stolen my gods?
31
And Jacob answered and said to Laban, I was afraid; for I said, Lest thou shouldest take by force thy daughters from me.
32
With whomsoever thou findest thy gods, he shall not live. Before our brethren discern what is thine with me, and take [it] to thee. But Jacob did not know that Rachel had stolen them.
33
And Laban went into Jacob's tent, and into Leah's tent, and into the two handmaids' tents, and found nothing; and he went out of Leah's tent, and entered into Rachel's tent.
34
Now Rachel had taken the teraphim and put them under the camel's saddle; and she sat upon them. And Laban explored all the tent, but found nothing.
35
And she said to her father, Let it not be an occasion of anger in the eyes of my lord that I cannot rise up before thee, for it is with me after the manner of women. And he searched carefully, but did not find the teraphim.
36
And Jacob was angry, and he disputed with Laban. And Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my fault, what my sin, that thou hast so hotly pursued after me?
37
Whereas thou hast explored all my baggage, what hast thou found of all thy household stuff? Set [it] here before my brethren and thy brethren, and let them decide between us both.
38
These twenty years have I been with thee: thy ewes and thy she-goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock I have not eaten.
39
What was torn I have not brought to thee; I had to bear the loss of it: of my hand hast thou required it, [whether] stolen by day or stolen by night.
40
Thus it was with me: in the day the heat consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep fled from mine eyes.
41
I have been these twenty years in thy house: I have served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy flock; and thou hast changed my wages ten times.
42
Had not the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, been with me, it is certain thou wouldest have sent me away now empty. God has looked upon my affliction and the labour of my hands, and has judged last night.
43
And Laban answered and said to Jacob, The daughters are my daughters, and the sons are my sons, and the flock is my flock, and all that thou seest is mine; but as for my daughters, what can I do this day to them, or to their sons whom they have brought forth?
44
And now, come, let us make a covenant, I and thou; and let it be a witness between me and thee.
45
And Jacob took a stone, and set it up [for] a pillar.
46
And Jacob said to his brethren, Gather stones. And they took stones, and made a heap, and ate there upon the heap.
47
And Laban called it Jegar-sahadutha, and Jacob called it Galeed.
48
And Laban said, This heap is a witness between me and thee this day. Therefore was the name of it called Galeed,
49
-- and Mizpah; for he said, Let Jehovah watch between me and thee, when we shall be hidden one from another:
50
if thou shouldest afflict my daughters, or if thou shouldest take wives besides my daughters, -- no man is with us; see, God is witness between me and thee!
51
And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold the pillar which I have set up between me and thee:
52
[let] this heap be witness, and the pillar a witness, that neither I pass this heap [to go] to thee, nor thou pass this heap and this pillar [to come] to me, for harm.
53
The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, judge between us! And Jacob swore by the fear of his father Isaac.
54
And Jacob offered a sacrifice upon the mountain, and invited his brethren to eat bread: and they ate bread, and lodged on the mountain.
55
And Laban rose early in the morning, and kissed his sons and his daughters, and blessed them; and Laban went and returned to his place.
