Jacob’s Flocks Increase
P T 7
25After Rachel gave birth to Joseph, Jacob said to Laban,
“Send me on my way so I can go back to my own homeland.
26Give me my wives and children, for whom I have served you, and I will be on my way. You know how much work I’ve
done for you.”
27But Laban said to him, “If I have found favor in your eyes,
please stay. I have learned by divination that the Lord has blessed me because of you.”
28He added, “Name your wages, and I will pay them.”
29Jacob said to him, “You know how I have worked for you and how your livestock has fared under my care.
30The little you had before I came has increased greatly, and
the Lord has blessed you wherever I have been. But now, when may I do something for my own household?”
