Genesis 30:26 Parallel
CommentaryGenesis 30:26 Parallel Commentaries
Since Jacob was in love with Rachel, he told her father, "I'll work for you for seven years if you'll give me Rachel, your younger daughter, as my wife."
So Jacob worked seven years to pay for Rachel. But his love for her was so strong that it seemed to him but a few days.
Jacob fled to the land of Aram, and there he earned a wife by tending sheep.
