Jacob resumed his journeya and went to the eastern country.b2
He looked and saw a well in a field. Three flocks of sheep were lying there beside it because the sheep were watered from this well. A large stone covered the opening of the well.
When all the flocksc were gathered there, the [shepherds] would roll the stone from the opening of the well and water the sheep. The stone was then placed back on the well's opening.
Jacob asked the men at the well, "My brothers! Where are you from?" "We're from Haran," they answered.
"Do you know Laban son of Nahor?" Jacob asked them. They answered, "We know [him]."
"Is he well?" Jacob asked. "Yes," they said, "and here is his daughter Rachel, coming with his sheep."
