But Isaac said to his son, "How did you ever find it so quickly, my son?" He replied, "Because the Lord your God worked it out for me."

Again he asked, "Are you really my son Esau?" And he replied, "I am."

"Come closer to me," Isaac replied, "so I can eat some of the game, my son, and then bless you." So Jacob came closer, and Isaac ate. Jacob also brought wine so his father could drink.

But they replied, "We can't, until all the flocks have been gathered and the stone is rolled from the well's opening. Then we will water the sheep."

Laban replied, "Better that I give her to you than to some other man. Stay with me."

"It is not our custom here," Laban replied, "to give the younger daughter in marriage before the firstborn.

She replied, "Here is my servant Bilhah! Have sexual relations with her so that she can bear children for me and I can have a family through her."

But Leah replied to her, "Isn't it enough that you have taken my husband? Now you also want to take my son's mandrakes?" "Well," Rachel said, "you can sleep with him tonight in exchange for your son's mandrakes."

But Jacob replied to Laban, "You know how I've served you and how your cattle thrived under my care.

So Laban asked, "What should I give you?" "You don't need to give me a thing," Jacob replied, "but if you agree to this one condition, I will continue to care for your flocks and protect them:

"Okay," Laban replied. "We'll do it the way you've asked."

"I have enough, my brother," Esau replied. "Keep what you have."

But Jacob replied, No, I beg of you, if now I have found favor in your sight, receive my gift that I am presenting; for truly to see your face is to me as if I had seen the face of God, and you have received me favorably.

Jacob replied, "My lord knows that the children are weak, and I have nursing sheep and cattle. If they are driven hard for one day, the whole herd will die.

"I will send you a young goat from my flock," he replied. But she said, "Only if you leave something [with me] until you send it."
