YLT 1 And Rachel seeth that she hath not borne to Jacob, and Rachel is envious of her sister, and saith unto Jacob, `Give me sons, and if there is none -- I die.' NIV 1 When Rachel saw that she was not bearing Jacob any children, she became jealous of her sister. So she said to Jacob, "Give me children, or I'll die!" YLT 2 And Jacob's anger burneth against Rachel, and he saith, `Am I in stead of God who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?' NIV 2 Jacob became angry with her and said, "Am I in the place of God, who has kept you from having children?" YLT 3 And she saith, `Lo, my handmaid Bilhah, go in unto her, and she doth bear on my knees, and I am built up, even I, from her;' NIV 3 Then she said, "Here is Bilhah, my maidservant. Sleep with her so that she can bear children for me and that through her I too can build a family." YLT 4 and she giveth to him Bilhah her maid-servant for a wife, and Jacob goeth in unto her; NIV 4 So she gave him her servant Bilhah as a wife. Jacob slept with her, YLT 5 and Bilhah conceiveth, and beareth to Jacob a son, NIV 5 and she became pregnant and bore him a son. YLT 6 and Rachel saith, `God hath decided for me, and also hath hearkened to my voice, and giveth to me a son;' therefore hath she called his name Dan.

YLT 8 and Rachel saith, `With wrestlings of God I have wrestled with my sister, yea, I have prevailed;' and she calleth his name Napthali.

YLT 9 And Leah seeth that she hath ceased from bearing, and she taketh Zilpah her maid-servant, and giveth her to Jacob for a wife; NIV 9 When Leah saw that she had stopped having children, she took her maidservant Zilpah and gave her to Jacob as a wife. YLT 10 and Zilpah, Leah's maid-servant, beareth to Jacob a son, NIV 10 Leah's servant Zilpah bore Jacob a son. YLT 11 and Leah saith, `A troop is coming;' and she calleth his name Gad. NIV 11 Then Leah said, "What good fortune!" So she named him Gad. YLT 12 And Zilpah, Leah's maid-servant, beareth a second son to Jacob, NIV 12 Leah's servant Zilpah bore Jacob a second son. YLT 13 and Leah saith, `Because of my happiness, for daughters have pronounced me happy;' and she calleth his name Asher. NIV 13 Then Leah said, "How happy I am! The women will call me happy." So she named him Asher. YLT 14 And Reuben goeth in the days of wheat-harvest, and findeth love-apples in the field, and bringeth them in unto Leah, his mother, and Rachel saith unto Leah, `Give to me, I pray thee, of the love-apples of thy son.' NIV 14 During wheat harvest, Reuben went out into the fields and found some mandrake plants, which he brought to his mother Leah. Rachel said to Leah, "Please give me some of your son's mandrakes." YLT 15 And she saith to her, `Is thy taking my husband a little thing, that thou hast taken also the love-apples of my son?' and Rachel saith, `Therefore doth he lie with thee to-night, for thy son's love-apples.' NIV 15 But she said to her, "Wasn't it enough that you took away my husband? Will you take my son's mandrakes too?" "Very well," Rachel said, "he can sleep with you tonight in return for your son's mandrakes." YLT 16 And Jacob cometh in from the field at evening; and Leah goeth to meet him, and saith, `Unto me dost thou come in, for hiring I have hired thee with my son's love-apples;' and he lieth with her during that night. NIV 16 So when Jacob came in from the fields that evening, Leah went out to meet him. "You must sleep with me," she said. "I have hired you with my son's mandrakes." So he slept with her that night. YLT 17 And God hearkeneth unto Leah, and she conceiveth, and beareth to Jacob a son, a fifth, NIV 17 God listened to Leah, and she became pregnant and bore Jacob a fifth son. YLT 18 and Leah saith, `God hath given my hire, because I have given my maid-servant to my husband;' and she calleth his name Issachar.

YLT 20 and Leah saith, `God hath endowed me -- a good dowry; this time doth my husband dwell with me, for I have borne to him six sons;' and she calleth his name Zebulun; NIV 20 Then Leah said, "God has presented me with a precious gift. This time my husband will treat me with honor, because I have borne him six sons." So she named him Zebulun. YLT 21 and afterwards hath she born a daughter, and calleth her name Dinah.

YLT 24 and she calleth his name Joseph, saying, `Jehovah is adding to me another son.' NIV 24 She named him Joseph, and said, "May the LORD add to me another son." YLT 25 And it cometh to pass, when Rachel hath borne Joseph, that Jacob saith unto Laban, `Send me away, and I go unto my place, and to my land; NIV 25 After Rachel gave birth to Joseph, Jacob said to Laban, "Send me on my way so I can go back to my own homeland. YLT 26 give up my wives and my children, for whom I have served thee, and I go; for thou -- thou hast known my service which I have served thee.' NIV 26 Give me my wives and children, for whom I have served you, and I will be on my way. You know how much work I've done for you." YLT 27 And Laban saith unto him, `If, I pray thee, I have found grace in thine eyes -- I have observed diligently that Jehovah doth bless me for thy sake.' NIV 27 But Laban said to him, "If I have found favor in your eyes, please stay. I have learned by divination that the LORD has blessed me because of you." YLT 28 He saith also, `Define thy hire to me, and I give.' NIV 28 He added, "Name your wages, and I will pay them." YLT 29 And he saith unto him, `Thou -- thou hast known that which I have served thee [in], and that which thy substance was with me; NIV 29 Jacob said to him, "You know how I have worked for you and how your livestock has fared under my care. YLT 30 for [it is] little which thou hast had at my appearance, and it breaketh forth into a multitude, and Jehovah blesseth thee at my coming; and now, when do I make, I also, for mine own house?' NIV 30 The little you had before I came has increased greatly, and the LORD has blessed you wherever I have been. But now, when may I do something for my own household?" YLT 31 And he saith, `What do I give to thee?' And Jacob saith, `Thou dost not give me anything; if thou do for me this thing, I turn back; I have delight; thy flock I watch; NIV 31 "What shall I give you?" he asked. "Don't give me anything," Jacob replied. "But if you will do this one thing for me, I will go on tending your flocks and watching over them: YLT 32 I pass through all thy flock to-day to turn aside from thence every sheep speckled and spotted, and every brown sheep among the lambs, and speckled and spotted among the goats -- and it hath been my hire; NIV 32 Let me go through all your flocks today and remove from them every speckled or spotted sheep, every dark-colored lamb and every spotted or speckled goat. They will be my wages. YLT 33 and my righteousness hath answered for me in the day to come, when it cometh in for my hire before thy face; -- every one which is not speckled and spotted among [my] goats, and brown among [my] lambs -- it is stolen with me.' NIV 33 And my honesty will testify for me in the future, whenever you check on the wages you have paid me. Any goat in my possession that is not speckled or spotted, or any lamb that is not dark-colored, will be considered stolen." YLT 34 And Laban saith, `Lo, O that it were according to thy word;' NIV 34 "Agreed," said Laban. "Let it be as you have said." YLT 35 and he turneth aside during that day the ring-straked and the spotted he-goats, and all the speckled and the spotted she-goats, every one that [hath] white in it, and every brown one among the lambs, and he giveth into the hand of his sons, NIV 35 That same day he removed all the male goats that were streaked or spotted, and all the speckled or spotted female goats (all that had white on them) and all the dark-colored lambs, and he placed them in the care of his sons. YLT 36 and setteth a journey of three days between himself and Jacob; and Jacob is feeding the rest of the flock of Laban. NIV 36 Then he put a three-day journey between himself and Jacob, while Jacob continued to tend the rest of Laban's flocks. YLT 37 And Jacob taketh to himself a rod of fresh poplar, and of the hazel and chesnut, and doth peel in them white peelings, making bare the white that [is] on the rods, NIV 37 Jacob, however, took fresh-cut branches from poplar, almond and plane trees and made white stripes on them by peeling the bark and exposing the white inner wood of the branches. YLT 38 and setteth up the rods which he hath peeled in the gutters in the watering troughs (when the flock cometh in to drink), over-against the flock, that they may conceive in their coming in to drink; NIV 38 Then he placed the peeled branches in all the watering troughs, so that they would be directly in front of the flocks when they came to drink. When the flocks were in heat and came to drink, YLT 39 and the flocks conceive at the rods, and the flock beareth ring-straked, speckled, and spotted ones. NIV 39 they mated in front of the branches. And they bore young that were streaked or speckled or spotted. YLT 40 And the lambs hath Jacob parted, and he putteth the face of the flock towards the ring-straked, also all the brown in the flock of Laban, and he setteth his own droves by themselves, and hath not set them near Laban's flock. NIV 40 Jacob set apart the young of the flock by themselves, but made the rest face the streaked and dark-colored animals that belonged to Laban. Thus he made separate flocks for himself and did not put them with Laban's animals. YLT 41 And it hath come to pass whenever the strong ones of the flock conceive, that Jacob set the rods before the eyes of the flock in the gutters, to cause them to conceive by the rods, NIV 41 Whenever the stronger females were in heat, Jacob would place the branches in the troughs in front of the animals so they would mate near the branches, YLT 42 and when the flock is feeble, he doth not set [them]; and the feeble ones have been Laban's, and the strong ones Jacob's. NIV 42 but if the animals were weak, he would not place them there. So the weak animals went to Laban and the strong ones to Jacob. YLT 43 And the man increaseth very exceedingly, and hath many flocks, and maid-servants, and men-servants, and camels, and asses. NIV 43 In this way the man grew exceedingly prosperous and came to own large flocks, and maidservants and menservants, and camels and donkeys.
