Genesis 29:20-35

GW 20 Jacob worked seven years in return for Rachel, but the years seemed like only a few days to him because he loved her. NIV 20 So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her. GW 21 [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." NIV 21 Then Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my wife. My time is completed, and I want to make love to her.” GW 22 So Laban invited all the people of that place and gave a wedding feast. NIV 22 So Laban brought together all the people of the place and gave a feast. GW 23 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. NIV 23 But when evening came, he took his daughter Leah and brought her to Jacob, and Jacob made love to her. GW 24 (Laban had given his slave Zilpah to his daughter Leah as her slave.) NIV 24 And Laban gave his servant Zilpah to his daughter as her attendant. GW 25 "What have you done to me?" Jacob asked Laban. "Didn't I work for you in return for Rachel? Why did you cheat me?" NIV 25 When morning came, there was Leah! So Jacob said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? I served you for Rachel, didn’t I? Why have you deceived me?” GW 26 Laban answered, "It's not our custom to give the younger daughter [in marriage] before the older one. NIV 26 Laban replied, “It is not our custom here to give the younger daughter in marriage before the older one. GW 27 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." NIV 27 Finish this daughter’s bridal week; then we will give you the younger one also, in return for another seven years of work.” GW 28 That's what Jacob did. He finished the week with Leah. Then Laban gave his daughter Rachel to him as his wife. NIV 28 And Jacob did so. He finished the week with Leah, and then Laban gave him his daughter Rachel to be his wife. GW 29 (Laban had given his slave Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as her slave.) NIV 29 Laban gave his servant Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as her attendant. GW 30 Jacob slept with Rachel too. He loved Rachel more than Leah. So he worked for Laban another seven years. NIV 30 Jacob made love to Rachel also, and his love for Rachel was greater than his love for Leah. And he worked for Laban another seven years. GW 31 When the LORD saw Leah was unloved, he made it possible for her to have children, but Rachel had none. NIV 31 When the LORD saw that Leah was not loved, he enabled her to conceive, but Rachel remained childless. GW 32 Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben [Here's My Son], because she said, "Certainly, the LORD has seen my misery; now my husband will love me!" NIV 32 Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben, for she said, “It is because the LORD has seen my misery. Surely my husband will love me now.” GW 33 She became pregnant again and gave birth to another son. She said, "Certainly, the LORD has heard that I'm unloved, and he also has given me this son." So she named him Simeon [Hearing]. NIV 33 She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, “Because the LORD heard that I am not loved, he gave me this one too.” So she named him Simeon. GW 34 She became pregnant again and gave birth to another son. She said, "Now at last my husband will become attached to me because I've given him three sons." So she named him Levi [Attached]. NIV 34 Again she conceived, and when she gave birth to a son she said, “Now at last my husband will become attached to me, because I have borne him three sons.” So he was named Levi. GW 35 She became pregnant again and gave birth to another son. She said, "This time I will praise the LORD." So she named him Judah [Praise]. Then she stopped having children. NIV 35 She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, “This time I will praise the LORD.” So she named him Judah. Then she stopped having children.
