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 its place.
And Jacob said to them, My brethren, whence [are] ye? And they said, We [are] from Haran.
And he said to them, Know ye Laban the son of Nahor? and they said, We know [him].
And he said to them, [Is] he well? And they said, [He is] well: and behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.
