Then Jacob went on his journey, and came to the land of the people of the east.
As he looked, he saw a well in the field, and lo, three flocks of sheep lying beside it; for out of that well the flocks were watered. The stone on the well's mouth was large,
and when all the flocks were gathered there, the shepherds would roll the stone from the mouth of the well, and water the sheep, and put the stone back in its place upon the mouth of the well.
Jacob said to them, "My brothers, where do you come from?" They said, "We are from Haran."
He said to them, "Do you know Laban the son of Nahor?" They said, "We know him."
He said to them, "Is it well with him?" They said, "It is well; and see, Rachel his daughter is coming with the sheep!"
