← Genesis 29   Genesis 31 →

1 And Rachel saw that she did not give·​·birth for Jacob, and Rachel was·​·zealous against her sister; and she said to Jacob, Give to me sons; and if not, I am·​·dead.

2 And Jacob was·​·fierce with anger against Rachel, and he said, Am I in· God’s ·stead, who withholds from thee the fruit of the belly?

3 And she said, Behold, my maidservant Bilhah; go·​·in to her, and she shall give·​·birth upon my knees, and I shall be built up, even I, from her.

4 And she gave to him Bilhah her handmaid for a woman, and Jacob came to her.

5 And Bilhah conceived, and gave·​·birth·​·to a son for Jacob.

6 And Rachel said, God has made·​·judgment for me, and also has heard my voice, and has given me a son; therefore she called his name Dan.

7 And she conceived yet·​·again, and Bilhah Rachel’s handmaid gave·​·birth·​·to a second son for Jacob.

8 And Rachel said, With the strugglings of God have I struggled with my sister, also I have prevailed; and she called his name Naphtali.

9 And Leah saw that she had stood still from giving·​·birth; and she took Zilpah her handmaid, and gave her to Jacob for a woman.

10 And Zilpah Leah’s handmaid gave·​·birth·​·to a son for Jacob.

11 And Leah said, A troop comes; and she called his name Gad.

12 And Zilpah Leah’s handmaid gave·​·birth·​·to a second son for Jacob.

13 And Leah said, In my happiness am I; for the daughters will make· me ·happy; and she called his name Asher.

14 And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found dudaim* in the field, and brought them to Leah his mother. And Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray, of the dudaim of thy son.

15 And she said to her, Is it a·​·little matter that thou hast taken my man, and wouldest thou take also the dudaim of my son? And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with thee tonight in·​·return·​·for the dudaim of thy son.

16 And Jacob came from the field in the evening, and Leah went·​·out to meet him, and said, Thou must come to me, for hiring I have hired thee with the dudaim of my son; and he lay with her that night.

17 And God hearkened to Leah, and she conceived and gave·​·birth·​·to a fifth son for Jacob.

18 And Leah said, God has given my wage, which I gave my handmaid for my man; and she called his name Issachar.

19 And Leah conceived yet·​·again, and gave·​·birth·​·to a sixth son for Jacob.

20 And Leah said, God has endowed me with a good dowry; this time will my man cohabit with me, for I have given·​·birth·​·to six sons for him; and she called his name Zebulun.

21 And afterwards, she gave·​·birth·​·to a daughter, and called her name Dinah.

22 And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.

23 And she conceived, and gave·​·birth·​·to a son, and said, God has gathered my reproach.

24 And she called his name Joseph, saying, Let Jehovah add to me another son.

25 And it was, as Rachel had given·​·birth·​·to Joseph, that Jacob said to Laban, Send· me ·away, and I will go to my place and to my land.

26 Give me my women, and my children, for whom I have served thee, and I will go; for thou knowest my service, with which I have served thee.

27 And Laban said to him, If, I pray, I have found grace in thine eyes, I have experienced it, and Jehovah has blessed me because·​·of thee.

28 And he said, Designate to me thy wage, and I will give it.

29 And he said to him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how thy livestock has been with me.

30 For thou hadst little before me, and it has broken·​·forth into a multitude, and Jehovah has blessed thee at my foot; and now when shall I also be doing something for my own house?

31 And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou shalt not give me anything; if thou wilt do for me this word, I will return, and shepherd and keep thy flock.

32 I will pass·​·through all thy flock today, removing from thence every speckled and spotted animal·​·of·​·the·​·flock, and every black animal·​·of·​·the·​·flock among the lambs, and the spotted and speckled among the goats; and these shall be my wage.

33 And my justice shall answer for me on the day of tomorrow, because thou come upon my wage before thee; every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and black among the lambs, stolen is this with me.

34 And Laban said, Behold, would·​·that it be according·​·to thy word.

35 And he removed in that day the he-goats that were mottled and spotted, and all the she-goats that were speckled and spotted, all that had white in it, and all the black among the lambs, and gave them into the hand of his sons.

36 And he set a way of three days between himself and Jacob; and Jacob pastured the remainder of the flock of Laban.

37 And Jacob took for himself a stick of fresh poplar, and hazel and the plane·​·tree, and peeled white peelings on them, laying·​·bare the white that was upon the sticks.

38 And he placed the sticks which he had peeled in the troughs*, in the place of giving· water ·to·​·drink, in which the flock came to drink, opposite the flock; and they grew·​·warm when they came to drink.

39 And the flocks grew·​·warm at the sticks, and the flocks gave·​·birth·​·to mottled, speckled, and spotted.

40 And Jacob separated the lambs, and put the faces of the flock toward the mottled and all the black in the flock of Laban; and he put his droves for himself alone, and put them not by the flock of Laban.

41 And it was when all the flock that first came·​·together* grew·​·warm, that Jacob set the sticks before the eyes of the flock in the troughs, to grow·​·warm at the sticks.

42 And to the flock that came together later he did not set them; and those that came together later were Laban’s, and those that came together first were Jacob’s.

43 And the man broke·​·forth into a multitude very exceedingly, and he had many flocks, and handmaids, and menservants, and camels, and donkeys.
