030:001
And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

030:002
And Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in God's stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

030:003
And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; and she shall bear upon my knees, that I may also have children by her.

030:004
And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went in unto her.

030:005
And Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son.

030:006
And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan.

030:007
And Bilhah Rachel's maid conceived again, and bare Jacob a second son.

030:008
And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.

030:009
When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her maid, and gave her Jacob to wife.

030:010
And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a son.

030:011
And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad.

030:012
And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a second son.

030:013
And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me blessed: and she called his name Asher.

030:014
And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found mandrakes in the field, and brought them unto his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy son's mandrakes.

030:015
And she said unto her, Is it a small matter that thou hast taken my husband? and wouldest thou take away my son's mandrakes also? And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with thee to night for thy son's mandrakes.

030:016
And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I have hired thee with my son's mandrakes. And he lay with her that night.

030:017
And God hearkened unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare Jacob the fifth son.

030:018
And Leah said, God hath given me my hire, because I have given my maiden to my husband: and she called his name Issachar.

030:019
And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.

030:020
And Leah said, God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she called his name Zebulun.

030:021
And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her name Dinah.

030:022
And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.

030:023
And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach:

030:024
And she called his name Joseph; and said, The LORD shall add to me another son.

030:025
And it came to pass, when Rachel had born Joseph, that Jacob said unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own place, and to my country.

030:026
Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have served thee, and let me go: for thou knowest my service which I have done thee.

030:027
And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favor in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the LORD hath blessed me for thy sake.

030:028
And he said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it.

030:029
And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how thy cattle was with me.

030:030
For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is now increased unto a multitude; and the LORD hath blessed thee since my coming: and now when shall I provide for mine own house also?

030:031
And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou shalt not give me any thing: if thou wilt do this thing for me, I will again feed and keep thy flock.

030:032
I will pass through all thy flock to day, removing from thence all the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my hire.

030:033
So shall my righteousness answer for me in time to come, when it shall come for my hire before thy face: every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the sheep, that shall be counted stolen with me.

030:034
And Laban said, Behold, I would it might be according to thy word.

030:035
And he removed that day the he goats that were ring-streaked and spotted, and all the she goats that were speckled and spotted, and every one that had some white in it, and all the brown among the sheep, and gave them into the hand of his sons.

030:036
And he set three days' journey betwixt himself and Jacob: and Jacob fed the rest of Laban's flocks.

030:037
And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and chestnut tree; and pilled white streaks in them, and made the white appear which was in the rods.

030:038
And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that they should conceive when they came to drink.

030:039
And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle ring-streaked, speckled, and spotted.

030:040
And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks toward the ring-streaked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban; and he put his own flocks by themselves, and put them not unto Laban's cattle.

030:041
And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods.

030:042
But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.

030:043
And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses.
