Genesis 29: 29-35

29(Laban gave his maid Bilhah to his daughter Rachel to be her maid.) 30So Jacob went in to Rachel also, and he loved Rachel more than Leah. He served Laban* for another seven years.

31 When the Lord saw that Leah was unloved, he opened her womb; but Rachel was barren. 32Leah conceived and bore a son, and she named him Reuben;* for she said, ‘Because the Lord has looked on my affliction; surely now my husband will love me.’ 33She conceived again and bore a son, and said, ‘Because the Lord has heard* that I am hated, he has given me this son also’; and she named him Simeon. 34Again she conceived and bore a son, and said, ‘Now this time my husband will be joined* to me, because I have borne him three sons’; therefore he was named Levi. 35She conceived again and bore a son, and said, ‘This time I will praise* the Lord’; therefore she named him Judah; then she ceased bearing.
