Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.
And he looked, and behold, a well in the field, and lo, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks; and a great stone was upon the well's mouth.
And thither were all the flocks gathered; and they rolled the stone from the well's mouth and watered the sheep, and put the stone again upon the well's mouth in his place.
And Jacob said unto them, "My brethren, from whence be ye?" And they said, "Of Haran are we."
And he said unto them, "Know ye Laban the son of Nahor?" And they said, "We know him."
And he said unto them, "Is he well?" And they said, "He is well; and behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep."
And he said, "Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together. Water ye the sheep, and go and feed them."
