29:2
et vidit puteum in agro tresque greges ovium accubantesiuxta eum nam ex illo adaquabantur pecora et os eius grandilapide claudebatur

29:3
morisque erat ut cunctis ovibus congregatis devolverentlapidem et refectis gregibus rursum super os putei ponerent

29:4
dixitque ad pastores fratres unde estis qui responderunt deHaran

29:5
quos interrogans numquid ait nostis Laban filium Nahordixerunt novimus

29:6
sanusne est inquit valet inquiunt et ecce Rahel filia eiusvenit cum grege suo

29:7
dixitque Iacob adhuc multum diei superest nec est tempus utreducantur ad caulas greges date ante potum ovibus et sic adpastum eas reducite

29:8
qui responderunt non possumus donec omnia pecoracongregentur et amoveamus lapidem de ore putei ut adaquemusgreges

29:9
adhuc loquebantur et ecce Rahel veniebat cum ovibus patrissui nam gregem ipsa pascebat

29:10
quam cum vidisset Iacob et sciret consobrinam suam ovesqueLaban avunculi sui amovit lapidem quo puteus claudebatur

29:11
et adaquato grege osculatus est eam elevataque voce flevit

29:12
et indicavit ei quod frater esset patris eius et filiusRebeccae at illa festinans nuntiavit patri suo

29:13
qui cum audisset venisse Iacob filium sororis suaecucurrit obviam conplexusque eum et in oscula ruens duxit indomum suam auditis autem causis itineris

29:14
respondit os meum es et caro mea et postquam expleti suntdies mensis unius

29:15
dixit ei num quia frater meus es gratis servies mihi dicquid mercedis accipias

29:16

29:18
quam diligens Iacob ait serviam tibi pro Rahel filia tuaminore septem annis

29:19
respondit Laban melius est ut tibi eam dem quam viroalteri mane apud me

29:20
servivit igitur Iacob pro Rahel septem annis et videbanturilli pauci dies prae amoris magnitudine

29:21
dixitque ad Laban da mihi uxorem meam quia iam tempusexpletum est ut ingrediar ad eam

29:22

029:001
Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.

029:002
And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, lo, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks: and a great stone was upon the well's mouth.

029:003
And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone again upon the well's mouth in his place.

029:004
And Jacob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? And they said, Of Haran are we.

029:005
And he said unto them, Know ye Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him.

029:006
And he said unto them, Is he well? And they said, He is well: and, behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.

029:007
And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and feed them.

029:008
And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together, and till they roll the stone from the well's mouth; then we water the sheep.

029:009
And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep; for she kept them.

029:010
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.

029:011
And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.

029:012
And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he was Rebekah's son: and she ran and told her father.

029:013
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.

029:014
And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my flesh. And he abode with him the space of a month.

029:015
And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be?

029:016
And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.

029:017
Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favored.

029:018
And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.

029:019
And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.

029:020
And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

029:021
And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.

029:022
And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.

029:023
And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.

029:024
And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid.

029:025
And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

029:026
And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.

029:027
Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

029:028
And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

029:029
And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid.

029:030
And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.

029:031
And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

029:032
And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the LORD hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.

029:033
And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the LORD hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.

029:034
And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.

029:035
And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.
