    1 Jacob comes to the well of Haran. 9 He becomes acquainted with Rachel. 13 Laban entertains him. 18 Jacob covenants for Rachel. 23 He is deceived by Laban with Leah. 28 He marries also Rachel, and serves for her seven years more. 32 Leah bears Reuben; 33 Simeon; 34 Levi; 35 and Judah. VERSE 1 - Jacob. * Ps 119:32,60 Ec 9:7 - went on his journey. Heb. lifted up his feet. came. * Ge 22:20-23; 24:10; 25:20; 28:5-7 Nu 23:7 Jud 6:3,33; 7:12; 8:10 * 1Ki 4:30 Ho 12:12 - people. Heb. children. east. The district of Mesopotamia, and the whole country beyond the Euphrates, are called Kedem, or the East, in the Sacred Writings. VERSE 2 - a well. * Ge 24:11,13 Ex 2:15,16 Joh 4:6,14 - there. * Ps 23:2 So 1:6,7 Isa 49:10 Re 7:17 - a great stone. In Arabia, and other places in the East, they cover up their wells of water, lest the sand, which is put in motion by the winds, should fill and quite stop them up. So great was their care not to leave the well open any length of time, that they waited till the flocks were all gathered together before they began to draw water; and when they had finished, the well was immediately closed again. VERSE 3 - the flocks. Instead of haadarim, 'the flocks,' the Samaritan reads haroin, 'the shepherds,' as does also the Arabic in Walton's Polyglott. This verse describes what was usually done by some mutual compact among the shepherds, and shows the purpose for which the flocks lay by the well; for the stone was not removed till all the flocks had been collected. Scott. * :3 VERSE 4 - Of Haran. * Ge 11:31; 24:10; 27:43; 28:10 Ac 7:2,4 - Charran. VERSE 5 - son of. * Ge 24:24,29; 31:53 VERSE 6 - Is he well?

In those primitive times, a pastoral life was not only considered useful but honorable: nor was it beneath the dignity of the daughters of the most opulent chiefs to carry water from the well, or tend the sheep. Jacob, Moses, and David were shepherds. VERSE 10 - rolled. * Ex 2:17 VERSE 11 - kissed. * :13; 27:26; 33:4; 43:30; 45:2,14,15 Ex 4:27; 18:7 Ro 16:16 - and wept. * Ge 33:4; 43:30; 45:2,14,15 VERSE 12 - brother. * Ge 13:8; 14:14-16 - and she. * Ge 24:28 VERSE 13 - tidings.

VERSE 15 - tell me. * Ge 30:28; 31:7 VERSE 16 - was Leah. * :17,25-32; 30:19; 31:4; 33:2; 35:23; 46:15; 49:31 Ru 4:11 VERSE 17 - Rachel. * :6-12,18; 30:1,2,22; 35:19,20,24; 46:19-22; 48:7 1Sa 10:2 Jer 31:15; * Mt 2:18 - beautiful. * Ge 12:11; 24:16; 39:6 Pr 31:30 VERSE 18 - loved. * :20,30 - I will serve. In ancient times, it was a custom among many nations to give dowries for their wives; but Jacob, being poor, offered for Rachel seven year's service. * Ge 31:41; 34:12 Ex 22:16,17 2Sa 3:14 Ho 3:2; 12:12 VERSE 19 * Ps 12:2 Isa 6:5,11 VERSE 20 - A.M. 2251.

Heb. place. * :26 VERSE 27 - week. * Ge 2:2,3; 8:10-12 Le 18:18 Jud 14:10,12 Mal 2:15 1Ti 6:10 - we will. * :20 VERSE 28 - fulfilled her week. The public marriage feast made on this occasion, seems to have formed the regular method of recognising the marriage, and lasted seven days: it would therefore have been improper to have broken off the solemnities to which all the men of the place had been invited (ver. 22) and probably Laban wished to keep the fraud from the public eye. It is perfectly plain that Jacob did not serve seven years more before he got Rachel to wife. * :28 VERSE 29 - Bilhah. See on ver. * :24; 30:3-8; 35:22,25; 37:2 VERSE 30 - he loved. * :20,31; 44:20,27 De 21:15 Mt 6:24; 10:37 Lu 14:26 Joh 12:25 - served. * :18; 30:25,26; 31:15,41 1Sa 18:17-27 Ho 12:12 VERSE 31 - saw. * Ex 3:7 - was hated. * :30; 27:41 De 21:15 Mal 1:3 Mt 6:24; 10:37 Lu 14:26 Joh 12:25 - he opened. * Ge 16:1; 20:18; 21:1,2; 25:21; 30:1,2,22 Jud 13:2,3 1Sa 1:5,20,27 * 1Sa 2:21 Ps 127:3 Lu 1:7 VERSE 32 - A.M. 2252.
