Genesis 29:15-30 - Jacob's Marriages

15 And Laban said to Jacob, Because you are my brother, should you then serve me for nothing? Tell me, what shall be your wages? 16 And Laban had two daughters. The name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. 17 And Leah was weak of eyes, but Rachel was beautiful and well-favored. 18 And Jacob loved Rachel, and said, I will serve you seven years for Rachel your younger daughter.

19 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to you than that I should give her to another man. Stay with me. 20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed to him a few days, for the love he had for her.

21 And Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, so that I may go in to her. 22 And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast. 23 And it happened in the evening, he took his daughter Leah and brought her to him. And he went in to her. 24 And Laban gave Zilpah his slave woman to his daughter Leah for a handmaid.

25 And it happened in the morning, behold, it was Leah! And he said to Laban, What is this you have done to me? Did I not serve with you for Rachel? Why then have you tricked me?

26 And Laban said, It must not be done so in our country, to give the younger before the first-born. 27 Fulfill her week, and we will give you this one also for the service which you shall serve with me still another seven years.

28 And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week. And he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also. 29 And Laban gave Bilhah his slave woman to his daughter Rachel, to be her handmaid. 30 And he also went in to Rachel. He also loved Rachel more than Leah, and served with him still seven more years.
