Reading: The Sons of Jacob (Genesis 29:1~30, 30:1~24)
Jacob arrived in Padan Aram, and began looking for his uncle Laban. Instead, he met Laban’s beautiful daughter, Rachel. Jacob fell in love with Rachel and desperately wanted her as his wife. Laban agreed to give her in marriage to Jacob. But, in return, he demanded that Jacob work for him for seven years. Jacob agreed and served Laban, tending his flocks. When the time for the wedding came, Laban prepared a feast. At the end of the feast, when it was finally time for Jacob to be with beautiful Rachel, Laban tricked him! Instead of Rachel, Laban presented Leah, the older sister, to Jacob. Jacob was furious! He had married the wrong woman! Devious Laban suggested a solution. If only Jacob would work for another seven years for him, he would let him marry Rachel too! Reluctantly, Jacob agreed. But having two wives caused lots of problems for years to come. Jacob continued working for Laban for many years. He eventually became father to eleven sons and one daughter. As he grew older, he finally decided it was time to take his growing family and move back to Canaan.
God blessed Leah with a firstborn son named Reuben. She then had three more sons: Simeon, Levi and Judah.
When Rachel did not have any children, she became upset. She told Jacob, “Here is my maid Bilhah. Have a child with her so it will be as if it were mine.” So Jacob took Bilhah as his wife. She had two sons, Dan and Naphtali.
Since Leah had stopped having children, she gave her maid, Zilpah, to Jacob as a wife. Zilpah had two sons, Gad and Asher.
God then blessed Leah with two more sons: Issachar and Zebulun. She also had a daughter named Dinah.
Later God blessed Rachel with a son named Joseph. Then she had another son named Benjamin.
