Bible: Gen 29:10-18

29:10 When Jacob saw Rachel, the daughter of his uncle Laban, 1  and the sheep of his uncle Laban, he 2  went over 3  and rolled the stone off the mouth of the well and watered the sheep of his uncle Laban. 4  29:11 Then Jacob kissed Rachel and began to weep loudly. 5  29:12 When Jacob explained 6  to Rachel that he was a relative of her father 7  and the son of Rebekah, she ran and told her father. 29:13 When Laban heard this news about Jacob, his sister’s son, he rushed out to meet him. He embraced him and kissed him and brought him to his house. Jacob 8  told Laban how he was related to him. 9  29:14 Then Laban said to him, “You are indeed my own flesh and blood.” 10  So Jacob 11  stayed with him for a month. 12 

29:15 Then Laban said to Jacob, “Should you work 13  for me for nothing because you are my relative? 14  Tell me what your wages should be.” 29:16 (Now Laban had two daughters; 15  the older one was named Leah, and the younger one Rachel. 29:17 Leah’s eyes were tender, 16  but Rachel had a lovely figure and beautiful appearance.) 17  29:18 Since Jacob had fallen in love with 18  Rachel, he said, “I’ll serve you seven years in exchange for your younger daughter Rachel.”
