So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah into the field where his flock was
and said to them, 1"I see that your father does not regard me with favor as he did before. But the God of my father 2has been with me.
3You know that I have served your father with all my strength,
yet your father has cheated me and changed my wages 4ten times. But God did not permit him to harm me.
If he said, 5'The spotted shall be your wages,' then all the flock bore spotted; and if he said, 'The striped shall be your wages,' then all the flock bore striped.
Thus God has 6taken away the livestock of your father and given them to me.
