Lavan said, "It is better that I give her to you, than that I should give her to another man. Stay with me."
Ya`akov served seven years for Rachel. They seemed to him but a few days, for the love he had for her.
Ya`akov said to Lavan, "Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in to her."
Lavan gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.
It happened in the evening, that he took Le'ah his daughter, and brought her to him. He went in to her.
Lavan gave Zilpah his handmaid to his daughter Le'ah for a handmaid.
It happened in the morning that, behold, it was Le'ah. He said to Lavan, "What is this you have done to me? Didn't I serve with you for Rachel? Why then have you deceived me?"
Lavan said, "It is not done so in our place, to give the younger before the first born.
Fulfill the week of this one, and we will give you the other also for the service which you will serve with me yet seven other years."
Ya`akov did so, and fulfilled her week. He gave him Rachel his daughter as wife.
Lavan gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah, his handmaid, to be her handmaid.
