While he was yet speaking with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep, for she kept them.
It happened, when Ya`akov saw Rachel the daughter of Lavan, his mother's brother, and the sheep of Lavan, his mother's brother, that Ya`akov went near, and rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the flock of Lavan his mother's brother.
Ya`akov kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.
Ya`akov told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he was Rivka's son. She ran and told her father.
It happened, when Lavan heard the news of Ya`akov, his sister's son, that he ran to meet Ya`akov, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house. Ya`akov told Lavan all these things.
Lavan said to him, Surely you are my bone and my flesh. He lived with him for a month.
Lavan said to Ya`akov, "Because you are my brother, should you therefore serve me for nothing? Tell me, what will your wages be?"
Lavan had two daughters. The name of the elder was Le'ah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
Le'ah's eyes were weak, but Rachel was beautiful and well favored.
Ya`akov loved Rachel. He said, "I will serve you seven years for Rachel, your younger daughter."
Lavan said, "It is better that I give her to you, than that I should give her to another man. Stay with me."
