When he awakes he perceives that Yahve is in this place, and calls it Bethel.5 E has omitted a statement in J, concerning the continuation of the journey, analogous to chap. xxix. I. We next find Jacob before a well in the open country, where he enters into conversation with the shepherds who are watering their sheep. He learns that he is talking with the servants of Laban, son of Nahor, and brother of his mother. Laban's own daughter Eachel soon comes. Jacob, as a relative, kisses her and weeps for joy.

Nothing seems to point to our author except Laban's excusing himself by alleging a custom of the country.2 Leah bears Eeuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, but Eachel is barren. By her handmaid, Bilhah, Jacob begets Dan and Naphtali; by Leah's handmaid, Zilpah, Gad and Asher. For Eeuben's loveapple Leah purchases from Eachel the privilege of cohabiting with Jacob.
