Genesis 25.21 . Isaac prayed to the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was childless. The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant. 23. The Lord said to her, “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.” 26 . After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau’s heel; so he was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.

Genesis 26.34 . When Esau was forty years old, he married Judith daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and also Basemath daughter of Elon the Hittite. 35 . They were a source of grief to Isaac and Rebekah.

Genesis 28.1. So Isaac called for Jacob and blessed him. Then he commanded him: “Do not marry a Canaanite woman.  29.1. Then Jacob continued on his journey and came to the land of the eastern peoples. 4 Jacob asked the shepherds, “My brothers, where are you from?” “We’re from Harran,” they replied. 5 . He said to them, “Do you know Laban, Nahor’s grandson?” “Yes, we know him,” they answered. 6 . Then Jacob asked them, “Is he well?” “Yes, he is,” they said, “and here comes his daughter Rachel with the sheep.”

Geesis 29.14 . Then Laban said to him, “You are my own flesh and blood.”After Jacob had stayed with him for a whole month, 15 . Laban said to him, “Just because you are a relative of mine, should you work for me for nothing? Tell me what your wages should be.”

Genesis 29.16 .Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. 18 . Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, “I’ll work for you seven years in return for your younger daughter Rachel.” 19 . Laban said, “It’s better that I give her to you than to some other man. Stay here with me.” 

Genesis 29. 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.  21 . Then Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my wife. My time is completed, and I want to make love to her.”
