Genesis 29:15-30 [ Verse 30 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
15 Then Laban said to Jacob, "Because you are my relative, F525 should you therefore serve me for nothing? Tell me, what shall your R869 wages be?" 16 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. 17 And Leah's eyes were weak, but Rachel was beautiful R870 of form and face. F526 18 Now Jacob loved R871 Rachel, so he said, "I R872 will serve you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel." 19 Laban said, "It is better that I give her to you than to give her to another man; stay with me." 20 So Jacob served seven years for Rachel and they seemed to him but a few days because R873 of his love for her. 21 Then Jacob said to Laban, "Give me my wife, for my time F527 is completed, that I may go R874 in to her." 22 Laban gathered all the men of the place and made a feast. 23 Now in the evening he took his daughter Leah, and brought her to him; and Jacob went in to her. 24 Laban also gave his maid Zilpah to his daughter Leah as a maid. 25 So it came about in the morning that, behold, it was Leah! And he said to Laban, "What R875 is this you have done to me? Was it not for Rachel that I served with you? Why then have you deceived R876 me?" 26 But Laban said, "It is not the F528 practice in our place to marry F529 off the younger before the firstborn. 27 "Complete the week of this one, and we will give you the other also for the service which you R877 shall serve with me for another seven years." 28 Jacob did so and completed her week, and he gave him his daughter Rachel as his wife. 29 Laban also gave his maid Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as her maid. 30 So Jacob went in to Rachel also, and indeed he R878 loved Rachel more than Leah, and he served with Laban F530 for another R879 seven years.
