Bible: Genesis 29:26-30

29:26 It is not our custom here,” 1  Laban replied, “to give the younger daughter in marriage 2  before the firstborn. 29:27 Complete my older daughter’s bridal week. 3  Then we will give you the younger one 4  too, in exchange for seven more years of work.” 5 

29:28 Jacob did as Laban said. 6  When Jacob 7  completed Leah’s bridal week, 8  Laban gave him his daughter Rachel to be his wife. 9  29:29 (Laban gave his female servant Bilhah to his daughter Rachel to be her servant.) 10  29:30 Jacob 11  had marital relations 12  with Rachel as well. He loved Rachel more than Leah, so he worked for Laban 13  for seven more years. 14
