the names
Genesis 29:1-30
1
Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.
2
And he looked, and behold, a well in the field, and lo, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks; and a great stone was upon the well's mouth.
3
And thither were all the flocks gathered; and they rolled the stone from the well's mouth and watered the sheep, and put the stone again upon the well's mouth in his place.
4
And Jacob said unto them, "My brethren, from whence be ye?" And they said, "Of Haran are we."
5
And he said unto them, "Know ye Laban the son of Nahor?" And they said, "We know him."
6
And he said unto them, "Is he well?" And they said, "He is well; and behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep."
7
And he said, "Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together. Water ye the sheep, and go and feed them."
8
And they said, "We cannot until all the flocks are gathered together, and until they roll the stone from the well's mouth. Then we water the sheep."
9
And while he yet spoke with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep, for she kept them.
10
And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban, his mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother, that Jacob went near and rolled the stone from the well's mouth and watered the flock of Laban, his mother's brother.
11
And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice and wept.
12
And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he was Rebekah's son; and she ran and told her father.
13
And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister's son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him and kissed him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.
14
And Laban said to him, "Surely thou art my bone and my flesh." And he abode with him the space of a month.
15
And Laban said unto Jacob, "Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? Tell me, what shall thy wages be?"
16
And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
17
Leah was tendereyed, but Rachel was beautiful and wellfavored.
18
And Jacob loved Rachel, and said, "I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter."
19
And Laban said, "It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man. Abide with me."
20
And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had for her.
21
And Jacob said unto Laban, "Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her."
22
And Laban gathered together all the men of the place and made a feast.
23
And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.
24
And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah, Zilpah his maid for a handmaid.
25
And it came to pass that in the morning, behold, it was Leah; and he said to Laban, "What is this thou hast done unto me? Did not I serve with thee for Rachel? Why then hast thou beguiled me?"
26
And Laban said, "It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.
27
Fulfill her week, and we will give thee this other also, for which service thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years."
28
And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week; and he gave him Rachel his daughter for a wife also.
29
And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid.
30
And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.
Genesis 35:23
The sons of Leah: Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon and Levi, and Judah and Issachar and Zebulun;
Genesis 49:1-33
1
And Jacob called unto his sons and said, "Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.
2
"Gather yourselves together and hear, ye sons of Jacob, and hearken unto Israel your father:
3
"Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power.
4
Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel, because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it; he went up to my couch.
5
"Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.
6
O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honor, be not thou united; for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they dug down a wall.
7
Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel! I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.
8
"Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise; thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.
9
Judah is a lion's whelp; from the prey, my son, thou art gone up. He stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
10
The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be.
11
Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine, he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes.
12
His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
13
"Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for a haven of ships, and his border shall be unto Sidon.
14
"Issachar is a strong ass, couching down between two burdens.
15
And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant, and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant to tribute.
16
"Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.
17
Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse's heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.
18
I have waited for Thy salvation, O LORD!
19
"Gad, a troop shall overcome him; but he shall overcome at the last.
20
"Out of Asher, his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.
21
"Naphtali is a hind let loose; he giveth goodly words.
22
"Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well, whose branches run over the wall.
23
The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him.
24
But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob, from thence is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel,
25
even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee, and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
26
The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills; they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
27
"Benjamin shall raven as a wolf; in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil."
28
All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is it that their father spoke unto them and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.
29
And he charged them and said unto them, "I am to be gathered unto my people. Bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,
30
in the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession as a burying place.
31
There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife, and there I buried Leah.
32
The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from the children of Heth."
33
And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.
