29:1 Then Jacob went on his journey, and came to the land of the children of the east.

29:10 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 well`s mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother`s brother.

29:26 And Laban said, It is not so done in our place, to give the younger before the first-born.
29:27 Fulfil the week of this one, and we will give thee the other also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.
29:28 And jacob did so, and fulfilled her week. And he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife.
29:29 And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her handmaid.

29:33 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and said, Because Jehovah hath heard that I am hated, he hath therefore given me this [son] also. And she called his name Simeon.
