Genesis 30:9 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
30:9 Rachel had done that absurd and preposterous thing of putting her maid into her husband's bed, and now Leah (because she missed one year in bearing children) doth the same, to be even with her. See the power of rivalship, and admire the wisdom of the divine appointment, which joins together one man and one woman only. Two sons Zilpah bare to Jacob, whom Leah looked upon herself as intitled to, in token of which she called one Gad, promising herself a little troop of children. The other she called Asher, Happy, thinking herself happy in him, and promising herself that her neighbours would think so too.
Rachel named him Naphtali, for she said, "I have struggled hard with my sister, and I'm winning!"
Soon Zilpah presented him with a son.
