When the Lord saw that Leah was unloved, He opened her womb; but Rachel was barren.
Leah conceived, gave birth to a son, and named him Reuben,a for she said, "The Lord has seen my affliction; surely my husband will love me now."
She conceived again, gave birth to a son, and said, "The Lord heard that I am unloved and has given me this [son] also." So she named him Simeon.b34
She conceived again, gave birth to a son, and said, "At last, my husband will become attached to me because I have borne him three sons." Therefore he was named Levi.c35
And she conceived again, gave birth to a son, and said, "This time I will praise the Lord." Therefore she named him Judah.d Then Leah stopped having children.
