Jacob Meets Rachel

1 Jacob resumed his journeya and went to the eastern country.b 2 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. 3 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. 4 Jacob asked the men at the well, "My brothers! Where are you from?" "We're from Haran," they answered. 5 "Do you know Laban son of Nahor?" Jacob asked them. They answered, "We know [him]." 6 "Is he well?" Jacob asked. "Yes," they said, "and here is his daughter Rachel, coming with his sheep."
