    13 Aʹbram then went up out of Egypt to the Negʹeb,+ he and his wife and all that he had, together with Lot. 2 Aʹbram was very rich in livestock, silver, and gold.+ 3 He camped in one place after another as he traveled from the Negʹeb to Bethʹel, until he arrived at the place where his tent had been between Bethʹel and Aʹi,+ 4 to the place where he had previously built an altar. There Aʹbram called on the name of Jehovah.5 Now Lot, who was traveling with Aʹbram, also owned sheep, cattle, and tents. 6 So the land did not allow for all of them to stay in the same place; their goods had become so many that they could no longer dwell together. 7 As a result, a quarrel arose between the herders of Aʹbram’s livestock and the herders of Lot’s livestock. (At that time the Caʹnaan·ites and the Perʹiz·zites were dwelling in the land.)+ 8 So Aʹbram said to Lot:+ “Please, there should be no quarreling between me and you and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are brothers. 9 Is not the whole land available to you? Please, separate from me. If you go to the left, then I will go to the right; but if you go to the right, then I will go to the left.”10 So Lot raised his eyes and saw that the whole district of the Jordan+ was a well-watered region (before Jehovah destroyed Sodʹom and Go·morʹrah), like the garden of Jehovah,+ like the land of Egypt, as far as Zoʹar.+ 11 Then Lot chose for himself the whole district of the Jordan, and Lot moved his camp to the east. So they separated from each other. 12 Aʹbram lived in the land of Caʹnaan, but Lot lived among the cities of the district.+ Finally he set up his tent near Sodʹom. 13 Now the men of Sodʹom were wicked, gross sinners against Jehovah.+14 Jehovah said to Aʹbram, after Lot had separated from him: “Raise your eyes, please, and look from the place where you are, to the north and south, east and west, 15 because all the land that you see, I will give to you and your offspring* as a lasting possession.+16 And I will make your offspring*like the dust particles of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust particles of the earth, then your offspring* could be counted.+ 17 Get up, travel through the length and breadth of the land, for to you I am going to give it.” 18 So Aʹbram continued to live in tents. Later he came and dwelled among the big trees of Mamʹre,+ which are in Hebʹron,+ and there he built an altar to Jehovah

    14 Now in the days of Amʹra·phel king of Shiʹnar,+ Arʹi·och king of El·laʹsar, Ched·or·la·oʹmer+ king of Eʹlam,+ and Tiʹdal king of Goiʹim, 2 these made war with Beʹra king of Sodʹom,+ Birʹsha king of Go·morʹrah,+ Shiʹnab king of Adʹmah, Shem·eʹber king of Ze·boiʹim,+ and the king of Beʹla, that is, Zoʹar. 3 All of these joined forces at the Valley* of Sidʹdim,+ that is, the Salt Sea.*+4 They had served Ched·or·la·oʹmer for 12 years, but they rebelled in the 13th year. 5 So in the 14th year, Ched·or·la·oʹmer and the kings who were with him came and defeated the Rephʹa·im in Ashʹte·roth-kar·naʹim, the Zuʹzim in Ham, the Eʹmim+ in Shaʹveh-kir·i·a·thaʹim, 6 and the Horʹites+ in their mountain of Seʹir+ down to El-paʹran, which is at the wilderness. 7 Then they turned back and came to En-mishʹpat, that is, Kaʹdesh,+ and conquered the whole territory of the A·malʹek·ites+ and also the Amʹor·ites+who were dwelling in Hazʹa·zon-taʹmar.+8 At this point, the king of Sodʹom went on the march, and also the king of Go·morʹrah, the king of Adʹmah, the king of Ze·boiʹim, and the king of Beʹla, that is, Zoʹar, and they drew up in battle formation against them in the Valley*of Sidʹdim, 9 against Ched·or·la·oʹmer king of Eʹlam, Tiʹdal king of Goiʹim, Amʹra·phel king of Shiʹnar, and Arʹi·och king of El·laʹsar+—four kings against the five. 10 Now the Valley* of Sidʹdim was full of bitumen pits, and the kings of Sodʹom and Go·morʹrah tried to escape and fell into them, and those who remained fled to the mountainous region. 11 Then the victors took all the goods of Sodʹom and Go·morʹrah and all their food and went on their way.+ 12 They also took Lot, the son of Aʹbram’s brother who was dwelling in Sodʹom,+as well as his goods, and they continued on their way.13 After that a man who had escaped came and told Aʹbram the Hebrew. He was then dwelling* among the big trees of Mamʹre the Amʹor·ite,+ the brother of Eshʹcol and Aʹner.+ These men were allies of Aʹbram. 14 Thus Aʹbram heard that his relative*+ had been taken captive. With that he mobilized his trained men, 318 servants born in his household, and went in pursuit up to Dan.+ 15 During the night, he divided his forces, and he and his servants attacked and defeated them. And he pursued them up to Hoʹbah, which is north of Damascus. 16 He recovered all the goods, and he also recovered Lot his relative, his goods, the women, and the other people.17 After Aʹbram returned from defeating Ched·or·la·oʹmer and the kings who were with him, the king of Sodʹom went out to meet Aʹbram at the Valley*of Shaʹveh, that is, the Valley of the King.+ 18 And Mel·chizʹe·dek+ king of Saʹlem+ brought out bread and wine; he was priest of the Most High God.+19 Then he blessed him and said:“Blessed be Aʹbram by the Most High God,Maker of heaven and earth;20 And praised be the Most High God,Who has handed your oppressors over to you!”And Aʹbram gave him a tenth of everything.+21 After that the king of Sodʹom said to Aʹbram: “Give me the people,* but take the goods for yourself.” 22 But Aʹbram said to the king of Sodʹom: “I raise my hand in an oath to Jehovah the Most High God, Maker of heaven and earth, 23 that I will not take anything that is yours, from a thread to a sandal lace, so that you may not say, ‘I made Aʹbram rich.’ 24 I will take nothing except what the young men have already eaten. As for the share of the men who went with me, Aʹner, Eshʹcol, and Mamʹre+—let them take

    There is much speculation about who this melchezidek could be
    I can only offer my humble opinion I believe that he wasn't early manifestation of God's word the one we now call Jesus.

    Genesis25:1-34

    25 Now Abraham again took a wife, and her name was Ke·tuʹrah. 2 In time she bore him Zimʹran, Jokʹshan, Meʹdan, Midʹi·an,+ Ishʹbak, and Shuʹah.+3 Jokʹshan became father to Sheʹba and Deʹdan.The sons of Deʹdan were As·shuʹrim, Le·tuʹshim, and Le·umʹmim.4 The sons of Midʹi·an were Eʹphah, Eʹpher, Haʹnoch, A·biʹda, and El·daʹah.All of these were the sons of Ke·tuʹrah.5 Later on Abraham gave everything he had to Isaac,+ 6 but Abraham gave gifts to his sons by his concubines. Then while he was still alive, he sent them eastward, away from Isaac his son,+ to the land of the East. 7 The years of Abraham’s life were 175 years. 8 Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, old and satisfied, and was gathered to his people.* 9 His sons Isaac and Ishʹma·el buried him in the cave of Mach·peʹlah in the field of Eʹphron the son of Zoʹhar the Hitʹtite that is in front of Mamʹre,+ 10 the field that Abraham had purchased from the sons of Heth. There Abraham was buried, with his wife Sarah.+ 11 After Abraham’s death, God continued to bless his son Isaac,+ and Isaac was dwelling near Beʹer-laʹhai-roi.+12 This is the history of Ishʹma·el+the son of Abraham whom Haʹgar+ the Egyptian, the servant of Sarah, bore to Abraham.13 Now these are the names of the sons of Ishʹma·el, by their names according to their family origins: Ishʹma·el’s firstborn Ne·baʹioth,+ then Keʹdar,+ Adʹbe·el, Mibʹsam,+ 14 Mishʹma, Duʹmah, Masʹsa, 15 Haʹdad, Teʹma, Jeʹtur, Naʹphish, and Kedʹe·mah.16 These are the sons of Ishʹma·el, and these are their names by their settlements and by their encampments,* 12 chieftains according to their clans.+ 17 And Ishʹma·el lived for 137 years. Then he breathed his last and died and was gathered to his people.* 18 And they took up dwelling from Havʹi·lah+ near Shur,+ which is close to Egypt, as far as As·syrʹi·a. He settled near all his brothers.*+19 And this is the history of Isaac the son of Abraham.+Abraham became father to Isaac. 20 Isaac was 40 years old when he married Re·bekʹah, the daughter of Be·thuʹel+the A·ra·maeʹan of Padʹdan-aʹram, the sister of Laʹban the A·ra·maeʹan. 21 And Isaac kept pleading with Jehovah regarding his wife, because she was barren; so Jehovah responded to his plea, and his wife Re·bekʹah became pregnant. 22 And the sons within her began to struggle with each other,+ so that she said: “If this is the way it is, why should I go on living?” So she inquired of Jehovah. 23 And Jehovah said to her: “Two nations are in your womb,+ and two peoples will be separated from within you;+ and the one nation will be stronger than the other nation,+ and the older will serve the younger.”+24 When the time came for her to give birth, look! twins were in her womb. 25 Then the first came out red all over and was like a garment of hair,+ so they named him Eʹsau.*+26 After that his brother came out and his hand was holding onto the heel of Eʹsau,+ so he named him Jacob.*+Isaac was 60 years old when she gave birth to them.27 As the boys got bigger, Eʹsau became a skilled hunter,+ a man of the field, but Jacob was a blameless man, dwelling in tents.+ 28 And Isaac loved Eʹsau because it meant game in his mouth, whereas Re·bekʹah loved Jacob.+ 29 On one occasion Jacob was boiling some stew when Eʹsau returned from the field exhausted. 30 So Eʹsau said to Jacob: “Quick, please, give me some* of the red stew that you have there,* for I am exhausted!”* That is why his name was Eʹdom.*+ 31 To this Jacob said: “First sell me your right as firstborn!”+ 32 And Eʹsau continued: “Here I am about to die! What use is a birthright to me?” 33 And Jacob added: “Swear to me first!” So he swore to him and sold his right as firstborn to Jacob.+ 34 Then Jacob gave Eʹsau bread and lentil stew, and he ate and drank, and he got up and went away. Thus Eʹsau despised the birthright.

    Genesis chapter 26
    now there was a famine in the land, in addition to the first famine that occurred in the days of Abraham,+ so that Isaac went to A·bimʹe·lech king of the Phi·lisʹtines, in Geʹrar. 2 Then Jehovah appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt. Dwell in the land that I designate to you. 3 Reside as a foreigner in this land,+ and I will continue with you and bless you because to you and to your offspring* I will give all these lands,+ and I will carry out the oath that I swore to your father Abraham:+ 4 ‘I will multiply your offspring* like the stars of the heavens;+ and I will give to your offspring* all these lands;+ and by means of your offspring,* all nations of the earth will obtain a blessing for themselves,’+ 5 on account of the fact that Abraham listened to my voice and continued to keep my requirements, my commands, my statutes, and my laws.”+ 6 So Isaac continued to dwell in Geʹrar.+7 When the men of the place kept asking about his wife, he would say: “She is my sister.”+ He was afraid to say, “She is my wife,” for he said, “The men of the place might kill me because of Re·bekʹah,” for she was beautiful in appearance.+ 8 After some time had passed, A·bimʹe·lech king of the Phi·lisʹtines was looking out of the window, and he saw Isaac displaying affection for* Re·bekʹah his wife.+ 9 At once A·bimʹe·lech called Isaac and said: “She is actually your wife! Why did you say, ‘She is my sister’?” At this Isaac said to him: “I said it for fear I should die because of her.”+ 10 But A·bimʹe·lech continued: “What have you done to us?+ One of the people could easily have lain down with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us!”+ 11 Then A·bimʹe·lech commanded all the people, saying: “Anybody touching this man and his wife will surely be put to death!”12 And Isaac began to sow seed in that land, and in that year he reaped 100 times what he sowed, for Jehovah was blessing him.+ 13 The man became wealthy, and he continued to prosper until he became very wealthy. 14 He acquired flocks of sheep and herds of cattle and a large body of servants,+and the Phi·lisʹtines began to envy him.15 So the Phi·lisʹtines took soil and stopped up all the wells that his father’s servants had dug in the days of Abraham.+ 16 A·bimʹe·lech then said to Isaac: “Move from our neighborhood, for you have grown far stronger than we are.” 17 So Isaac moved from there and encamped in the valley* of Geʹrar+ and began dwelling there. 18 And Isaac again dug the wells that had been dug in the days of his father Abraham but that the Phi·lisʹtines had stopped up after Abraham’s death,+and he called them by the names that his father had given them.+19 When the servants of Isaac were digging in the valley,* they found a well of fresh water. 20 And the shepherds of Geʹrar began quarreling with the shepherds of Isaac, saying: “The water is ours!” So he named the well Eʹsek,* because they had quarreled with him. 21 And they started digging another well, and they began quarreling over it also. So he named it Sitʹnah.*22 Later he moved away from there and dug another well, but they did not quarrel over it. So he named it Re·hoʹboth* and said: “It is because now Jehovah has given us ample room and has made us fruitful in the land.”+23 Then he went up from there to Beʹer-sheʹba.+ 24 That night Jehovah appeared to him and said: “I am the God of your father Abraham.+ Do not be afraid,+ for I am with you, and I will bless you and multiply your offspring*on account of Abraham my servant.”+25 So he built an altar there and called on the name of Jehovah.+ And Isaac pitched his tent there,+ and his servants dug a well there.26 Later A·bimʹe·lech came to him from Geʹrar with A·huzʹzath his personal adviser and Phiʹcol the chief of his army.+ 27 At this Isaac said to them: “Why have you come to me, seeing that you hated me and sent me away from your neighborhood?” 28 To this they said: “We have clearly seen that Jehovah has been with you.+ So we said, ‘Let there, please, be an oath of obligation between us and you, and let us make a covenant with you+ 29 that you will do nothing bad to us just as we have not harmed you, seeing that we have done only good to you in that we sent you away in peace. You now are the blessed of Jehovah.’” 30 Then he made a feast for them, and they ate and drank. 31 In the morning they got up early and swore an oath to each other.+ After that Isaac sent them away, and they went from him in peace.32 On that day the servants of Isaac came and reported to him about the well that they had dug,+ and they told him: “We have found water!” 33 So he named it Shiʹbah. That is why the name of the city is Beʹer-sheʹba+ to this day.34 When Eʹsau was 40 years old, he took as wife Juʹdith the daughter of Be·eʹri the Hitʹtite and also Basʹe·math the daughter of Eʹlon the Hitʹtite.+ 35 They were a source of great grief* to Isaac and Re·bekʹah.+

    Genesis27:1-46

    27 Now when Isaac was old and his eyes were too weak to see, he called Eʹsau+ his older son to him and said: “My son!” He replied: “Here I am!” 2 And he went on to say: “I have now grown old. I do not know the day of my death. 3 So at this time take, please, your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt some wild game for me.+ 4 Then make the kind of tasty dish that I am fond of and bring it to me. Then I will eat it so that I* may bless you before I die.”5 However, Re·bekʹah was listening while Isaac spoke to Eʹsau his son. And Eʹsau went out into the field to hunt game and to bring it in.+ 6 And Re·bekʹah said to Jacob her son:+ “I just heard your father speaking to your brother Eʹsau, saying, 7 ‘Bring me some game and make me a tasty dish. Then let me eat so that I may bless you before Jehovah before my death.’+ 8 And now, my son, listen carefully and do what I am instructing you.+ 9 Go, please, to the herd and get me two of the best young goats from there so that I may prepare from them a tasty dish for your father, just the way he likes it. 10 Then take it to your father to eat, in order that he may bless you before his death.”11 Jacob said to his mother Re·bekʹah: “But Eʹsau my brother is a hairy man,+ and my skin is smooth.12 What if my father feels me?+ Then I will certainly appear to be mocking him, and I will bring upon myself a curse rather than a blessing.” 13 At this his mother said to him: “Upon me be the curse meant for you, my son. Just do as I say and go, get them for me.”+ 14 So he went and got them and brought them to his mother, and his mother made a tasty dish, just the way his father liked it. 15 After that Re·bekʹah took her older son Eʹsau’s finest garments, which she had in the house, and put them on her younger son Jacob.+ 16 She also put the skins of the young goats on his hands and on the hairless part of his neck.+ 17 Then she handed the tasty dish and the bread that she had made to her son Jacob.+18 So he went in to his father and said: “My father!” to which he said: “Here I am! Who are you, my son?” 19 Jacob said to his father: “I am Eʹsau your firstborn.+ I have done just as you told me. Sit up, please, and eat some of my game, so that you* may bless me.”+ 20 At that Isaac said to his son: “How were you so quick in finding it, my son?” He replied: “Because Jehovah your God brought it to me.” 21 Then Isaac said to Jacob: “Come near, please, that I may feel you, my son, to know whether you are really my son Eʹsau or not.”+22 So Jacob came near to his father Isaac, and he felt him, after which he said: “The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Eʹsau.”+ 23 He did not recognize him because his hands were hairy like the hands of his brother Eʹsau. So he blessed him.+24 After that he asked: “Are you really my son Eʹsau?” to which he replied: “I am.” 25 Then he said: “Bring me some of the wild game for me to eat, my son, then I* will bless you.” With that he brought it to him and he ate, and he brought him wine and he drank. 26 Then Isaac his father said to him: “Come near, please, and kiss me, my son.”+ 27 So he came near and kissed him, and he could smell the scent of his garments.+ Then he blessed him and said:“See, the scent of my son is like the scent of the field that Jehovah has blessed. 28 May the true God give you the dews of the heavens+ and the fertile soils of the earth+ and an abundance of grain and new wine.+29 Let peoples serve you, and let nations bow low to you. Be master over your brothers, and let the sons of your mother bow low to you.+ Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be everyone who blesses you.”+30 Now Isaac had just finished blessing Jacob, and Jacob had barely left the presence of his father Isaac when his brother Eʹsau came back from his hunting.+ 31 He too prepared a tasty dish and brought it to his father, and he said to his father: “Let my father get up and eat some of his son’s game, in order that you* may bless me.” 32 At this his father Isaac said to him: “Who are you?” to which he said: “I am your son, your firstborn, Eʹsau.”+ 33 And Isaac began to tremble violently, so he said: “Who was it, then, who hunted for game and brought it to me? I already ate it before you arrived, and I blessed him—and he will surely be blessed!”34 On hearing his father’s words, Eʹsau began to cry out in an extremely loud and bitter manner and to say to his father: “Bless me, yes, me too, my father!”+ 35 But he said: “Your brother came deceitfully so that he might get the blessing meant for you.”36 At this he said: “Is he not rightly named Jacob,* that he might supplant me these two times?+ My birthright he has already taken,+ and now he has taken my blessing!”+ Then he added: “Have you not reserved a blessing for me?” 37 But Isaac answered Eʹsau: “Here I have appointed him master over you,+ and I have given him all his brothers as servants, and I have bestowed grain and new wine for his support.+ What is left that I can do for you, my son?”38 Eʹsau said to his father: “Is there just one blessing that you have, my father? Bless me, yes, me too, my father!” With that Eʹsau cried loudly and burst into tears.+ 39 So his father Isaac answered him:“See, away from the fertile soils of the earth your dwelling will be, and away from the dew of the heavens above.+40 And by your sword you will live,+and you will serve your brother.+ But when you grow restless, you will indeed break his yoke off your neck.”+41 However, Eʹsau harbored animosity against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him,+ and Eʹsau kept saying in his heart: “The days of mourning for my father are getting closer.+ After that I am going to kill Jacob my brother.” 42 When the words of her older son Eʹsau were told to Re·bekʹah, she at once sent for her younger son Jacob and said to him: “Look! Your brother Eʹsau is planning to take revenge by killing you.* 43 Now, my son, do as I say. Get up and run away to my brother Laʹban at Haʹran.+ 44 Dwell with him for a while until your brother’s rage calms down, 45 until your brother’s anger toward you subsides and he forgets what you have done to him. Then I will send for you from there. Why should I lose both of you in one day?”46 After that Re·bekʹah kept saying to Isaac: “I am disgusted with my life because of the daughters of Heth.+ If Jacob ever takes a wife from the daughters of Heth, like these daughters of the land, what good is my life?”+

    Esau was in too big a hurry to forfeit the rights of the firstborn in exchange for the bowl of stew.

    Esau was sent away - he had to live by the sword and became a servant to his brother.

    You're right on both of your comments he saw was not very wise trading his birth certificate and right to the blessing for a bowl of common chili which essentially is what red Stew was and when it came time for the blessing Esau sought the blessing with many tears thank you for the comment

    Genesis chapter 28

    King James Bible Online

    Genesis Chapter 28


    1 And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

    2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother's brother.

    3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;

    4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.

    5 And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.

    6 When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan;

    7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padanaram;

    8 And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father;

    9 Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

    10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

    11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

    12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

    13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

    14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

    15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

    16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

    17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

    18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

    19 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

    20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,

    21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:

    22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

    Genesis29:1-35

    29 After that Jacob resumed his journey and traveled on to the land of the people of the East. 2 Now he saw a well in the field and three droves of sheep lying down next to it, because they usually watered the droves from that well. There was a large stone over the mouth of the well. 3 When all the droves had been gathered there, they rolled away the stone from the mouth of the well, and they watered the flocks, after which they returned the stone to its place over the mouth of the well.4 So Jacob said to them: “My brothers, what place are you from?” to which they said: “We are from Haʹran.”+ 5 He said to them: “Do you know Laʹban+ the grandson of Naʹhor?”+ to which they said: “We know him.” 6 At this he said to them: “Is he well?” They replied: “He is well. And here is his daughter Rachel+coming with the sheep!” 7 Then he said: “It is still the middle of the day. It is not the time for gathering the herds. Water the sheep, and then go feed them.” 8 To this they said: “We are not allowed to do so until all the droves are gathered and they roll the stone away from the mouth of the well. Then we water the sheep.”9 While he was yet speaking with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep, for she was a shepherdess. 10 When Jacob saw Rachel, the daughter of Laʹban his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laʹban, Jacob immediately approached and rolled the stone away from the mouth of the well and watered the sheep of Laʹban his mother’s brother.11 Then Jacob kissed Rachel and raised his voice and burst into tears. 12 And Jacob began to tell Rachel that he was the relative* of her father and that he was the son of Re·bekʹah. And she ran off and told her father.13 As soon as Laʹban+ heard the report about Jacob the son of his sister, he ran to meet him. He embraced him and kissed him and brought him into his house. And he began to tell Laʹban all these things. 14 Laʹban said to him: “You are indeed my bone and my flesh.”* So he stayed with him a full month.15 Laʹban then said to Jacob: “Just because you are my relative,*+ should you serve me for nothing? Tell me, what are your wages to be?”+ 16 Now Laʹban had two daughters. The name of the older was Leʹah, and the name of the younger, Rachel.+ 17 But the eyes of Leʹah had no luster, whereas Rachel had become a very attractive and beautiful woman. 18 Jacob had fallen in love with Rachel, so he said: “I am willing to serve you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel.”+ 19 To this Laʹban said: “It is better for me to give her to you than to give her to another man. Keep dwelling with me.” 20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel,+ but in his eyes they were like just a few days because of his love for her.21 Then Jacob said to Laʹban: “Give over my wife because my days are up, and let me have relations with her.” 22 With that Laʹban gathered all the men of the place and made a feast. 23 But during the evening, he resorted to taking his daughter Leʹah and bringing her to him that he might have relations with her. 24 Laʹban also gave his female servant Zilʹpah to his daughter Leʹah as a servant.+ 25 In the morning Jacob saw that it was Leʹah! So he said to Laʹban: “What have you done to me? Was it not for Rachel that I served you? Why have you tricked me?”+ 26 To this Laʹban said: “It is not our custom here to give the younger woman before the firstborn. 27 Celebrate the week of this woman. After that you will also be given this other woman in exchange for serving me seven more years.”+ 28 Jacob did so and celebrated the week of this woman, after which he gave him his daughter Rachel as a wife. 29 Besides, Laʹban gave his female servant Bilʹhah+ to his daughter Rachel as her servant.+30 Then Jacob had relations also with Rachel, and he loved Rachel more than Leʹah, and he served him for another seven years.+ 31 When Jehovah saw that Leʹah was unloved,* he then enabled her to become pregnant,*+ but Rachel was barren.+ 32 So Leʹah became pregnant and gave birth to a son and named him Reuʹben,*+ for she said: “It is because Jehovah has looked upon my affliction,+ for now my husband will begin to love me.” 33 And she again became pregnant and gave birth to a son and then said: “It is because Jehovah has listened, in that I was unloved, so he gave me this one also.” Then she named him Simʹe·on.*+ 34 And she became pregnant yet again and gave birth to a son and then said: “Now this time my husband will join himself to me, because I have borne him three sons.” Therefore, he was named Leʹvi.*+ 35 And she became pregnant once more and gave birth to a son and then said: “This time I will praise Jehovah.” She therefore named him Judah.*+ After that she stopped giving birth.
