Then Jacob continued his journey and came to the land of the people of the East.
He looked and saw a well in the field and three flocks of sheep lying nearby, because they drank water from this well. A large stone covered the mouth of the well.
When all the flocks would gather there, the shepherds would roll the stone away from the well and water the sheep. Then they would put the stone back in its place.
Jacob said to the shepherds there, "My brothers, where are you from?" They answered, "We are from Haran."
Then Jacob asked, "Do you know Laban, grandson of Nahor?" They answered, "We know him."
Then Jacob asked, "How is he?" They answered, "He is well. Look, his daughter Rachel is coming now with his sheep."
