"I love you Rachel! I will serve you, Leben, seven years for you daughter."
Jacob Marries Leah and Rachel
"That's Leah! How could you do this to me?"
"Now Laban had two daughters. The name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Leah's eyes were weak, but Rachel was beautiful in form and appearance. Jacob loved Rachel. And he said, 'I will serve you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel."
Jacob Flees From Laban
"Come on lets go!"
"And in the morning, behold it was Leah! And Jacob said to Laban, 'What is this you have done to me? Did I not serve you for Rachel? Why then have you deceived me?' Laban said, 'It is not so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn."
Jacob Wrestles With God
"When Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, she envied her sister. So she gave him her servant Bilhah as a wife, and Jacob went into her. When Leah saw that she had ceased bearing children, she took her servant Zilpah and gave her to Jacob as a wife. Then Leah's servant Zilpah bore Jacob a son. Leah's servant Zilpah bore Jacob a second son. And Leah conceived and bore Jacob a sixth son. Afterwards she bore a daughter and called her name Dinah. Then God remembered Rachel, and God listened to her and opened her womb. She conceived and bore a son. And she called his name Joseph."
The Death of Rachel
"So Jacob arose and set his sons and his wives on camels. Laban had gone to shear his sheep, and Rachel stole her father's household gods. And Jacob tricked Laban the Aramean, by not telling him that he intended to flee."
"The same night he arose and took his two wives, his two female servants, and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. And he took them and sent them across the stream, and everything else that he had. And a man wrestled with him until the break of day. He touched his hip socket, and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. Then he said, 'Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for have strieven with God and with man, and have prevailed."
"And when her labor was at its hardest, the midwife said to her, 'do not fear for you have another son.' and as her soul was departing (for she was dying) she called his name Ben-oi; but his father called him Benjamin."
