During the wheat harvest Reuben went out into the fields and found some mandrakes. He brought them to his mother Leah. Rachel said to Leah, "Please give me some of your son's mandrakes."
Leah replied, "Isn't it enough that you took my husband? Are you also going to take my son's mandrakes?" Rachel said, "Very well, Jacob can go to bed with you tonight in return for your son's mandrakes."
As Jacob was coming in from the fields that evening, Leah went out to meet him. "You are to sleep with me," she said. "You are my reward for my son's mandrakes." So he went to bed with her that night.
God answered Leah's prayer. She became pregnant and gave birth to her fifth son for Jacob.
Leah said, "God has given me my reward because I gave my slave to my husband." So she named him Issachar [Reward].
She became pregnant again and gave birth to her sixth son for Jacob.
Leah said, "God has presented me with a beautiful present. This time my husband will honor me because I have given him six sons." So she named him Zebulun [Honor].
Later she gave birth to a daughter and named her Dinah.
Then God remembered Rachel. God answered her prayer and made it possible for her to have children.
So she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. Then she said, "God has taken away my disgrace."
She named him Joseph [May He Give Another] and said, "May the LORD give me another son."
