So Jacob went on his journey and came to the land of the people of the East.
And he looked, and saw a well in the field; and behold, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks. A large stone was on the well's mouth.
Now all the flocks would be gathered there; and they would roll the stone from the well's mouth, water the sheep, and put the stone back in its place on the well's mouth.
And Jacob said to them, "My brethren, where are you from?" And they said, "We are from Haran."
Then he said to them, "Do you know Laban the son of Nahor?" And they said, "We know him."
So he said to them, "Is he well?" And they said, "He is well. And look, his daughter Rachel is coming with the sheep."
