1 When Rachel saw that she was not bearing Jacob any children,1 she became jealous of her sister.2 So she said to Jacob, "Give me children, or I'll die!" 2 Jacob became angry with her and said, "Am I in the place of God,3 who has kept you from having children?"4 3 Then she said, "Here is Bilhah,5 my maidservant.6 Sleep with her so that she can bear children for me and that through her I too can build a family."7 4 So she gave him her servant Bilhah as a wife.8 Jacob slept with her,9 5 and she became pregnant and bore him a son. 6 Then Rachel said, "God has vindicated me;10 he has listened to my plea and given me a son."11 Because of this she named him Dan.a12 7 Rachel's servant Bilhah13 conceived again and bore Jacob a second son. 8 Then Rachel said, "I have had a great struggle with my sister, and I have won."14 So she named him Naphtali.b15 9 When Leah16 saw that she had stopped having children,17 she took her maidservant Zilpah18 and gave her to Jacob as a wife.19 10 Leah's servant Zilpah20 bore Jacob a son. 11 Then Leah said, "What good fortune!"c So she named him Gad.d21
