Leah had attractive eyes, but Rachel had a beautiful figure and beautiful features.
Jacob loved Rachel. So he offered, "I'll work seven years in return for your younger daughter Rachel."
Laban responded, "It's better that I give her to you than to any other man. Stay with me."
Jacob worked seven years in return for Rachel, but the years seemed like only a few days to him because he loved her.
[At the end of the seven years] Jacob said to Laban, "The time is up; give me my wife! I want to sleep with her."
So Laban invited all the people of that place and gave a wedding feast.
In the evening he took his daughter Leah and brought her to Jacob. Jacob slept with her. When morning came, he realized it was Leah.
(Laban had given his slave Zilpah to his daughter Leah as her slave.)
"What have you done to me?" Jacob asked Laban. "Didn't I work for you in return for Rachel? Why did you cheat me?"
Laban answered, "It's not our custom to give the younger daughter [in marriage] before the older one.
Finish the week of wedding festivities with this daughter. Then we will give you the other one too. But you'll have to work for me another seven years."
