With this system of calculation Jacob would have left his home to find his wife twenty years earlier, or at approximately fifty-seven years of age. This age for Jacob to go looking for a wife harmonizes better with the marriage age (40) of both Isaac File Size: 33KB. Jacob – Bible patriarch. Jacob, son of Isaac and Rebecca, twin brother of Esau, husband of the sisters Rachel and Leah, and father of the twelve sons who became the ancestors of the twelve tribes of Israel; Rachel, his beloved wife, mother of Joseph & Benjamin, died giving birth to Benjamin; Leah her older sister, also married to ‘unloved’ wife who all the same .

Rachel is Jacob's second wife, but his first choice. She gets to bask in the sunshine of being the favorite wife, so much so that God feels sorry for her sister, Leah, and gives her sons (). Leah becomes a real baby-making machine while Rachel endures the cultural stigma of being childless. Ouch. Enter the green-eyed monster. The book as exhibited here is original with minor corrections and is complete with a short family history by Samuel H. Comer (written ) and a history of the Miller family by Samuel Silas Miller, Jr. (written in the years to ) as originally published in the version of “Genealogy of Jacob Miller and His Descendants”.File Size: KB.

  Isaac, the father of Jacob, wanted his son to marry from among their own people, so he sent Jacob to Paddan-aram, to find a wife among the daughters of Laban, Jacob's uncle. At the well at Haran, Jacob found Rachel, Laban's younger daughter, tending sheep. He kissed her and fell in love with her. Scripture says Rachel was : Jack Zavada. man with more than one wife, we can assume that from the point of view of the Law, the taking of multiple wives was not allowed. Look at what happened to Solomon. His multiple wives was probably the single greatest cause of his downfall. Genesis ,25 clearly implies that it was God?s plan all along for one husband to have one wife.

Jacob Works for His Wives Genesis Jacob turns eastward, towards his uncle’s home-town. There he encounters a group of shepherds gathering to water their sheep.

Jacob Searches for a Wife 28 Isaac called Jacob and blessed him and commanded him, “You must not marry a Canaanite woman. 2 Go to the house of Bethuel, your mother’s father, in Northwest Mesopotamia. Laban, your mother’s brother, lives there. And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

The third mistake that Jacob made in dealing with the two sisters was that of favoritism. (Genesis ) And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.

After Jacob and his family had been back Jacob and his wives book Caʹnaan for a while, Rachel gave birth to another son. It happened when they were on a trip. Rachel had a hard time, and she finally died while giving birth. But the little baby boy was all right.

Jacob named him Benjamin. We want to remember the names of the 12 sons of Jacob because the whole nation. Jacob and his wives Mass Market Paperback – January 1, by Sarah Clifford (Author) See all 3 formats and editions Hide other formats and editions.

In fact, it is one of the greatest love stories of all time. Jacob is the father of the twelve tribes of Israel and is a significant figure in biblical history.

God latter changes his name to Israel from which the nation finds its name. So Jacob stayed seven years more, fourteen years in all, before he received Rachel as his wife. While Jacob was living at Haran, eleven sons were born to him.

But only one of these was the child of Rachel, whom Jacob loved. This son was Joseph, who was dearer to Jacob than any other of his children, partly because he was the youngest, and. 4 So Rachel gave Jacob her woman servant Bilhah to be his wife, and Jacob and his wives book had sex with her.

5 Bilhah conceived and bore a son for Jacob. 6 Then Rachel said, “God has vindicated me. He has heard my voice and has given me a son.” Therefore, she named him Dan. At the time, Jacob feared his twin brother, Esau, would kill him (Genesis –46).

It was at Laban’s that Jacob met Leah and Rachel. Laban offered his nephew Jacob a place to stay. Jacob soon fell in love with Laban’s younger daughter, Rachel, and agreed to work for Laban seven years in exchange for marriage to her (Genesis –20). Presently, Jacob is the co-founder of the Rock and Roloff channel on YouTube, alongside his wife.

The channel shows their road trips as they travel across America. Apart from content making, he has also written a book, “Verbing”, which is available on Amazon. The book explains about the hardships of growing up on the show, and all the angst he had as a : Felix Murray.

Isaac did nothing else of significance in the entire book. Isaac didn’t go out to find his own wife. I’ve been told, that it is a literary device in ancient Hebrew literature to have men first meet their wives at some well or spring.

What happens at the well is indicative of the relationship. For instance, Moses met his wife at the well. And a profound frustration underlies the relationships between Jacob and his two wives: Leah loves Jacob and names her children as a record of her changing relation to her husband; Jacob loves Rachel, and Rachel’s main passion is for children.

Essentially, all the protagonists most want what they cannot : Rabbi Melissa Crespy. Genesis New International Version (NIV) Jacob Wrestles With God. 22 That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two female servants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok.

23 After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. 24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak.

And Reuben saw Bilhah, Rachel's maid, the concubine of his father, bathing in. Rating Im giving The Fisherman and His Wife is a solider five out of five stars for me. Genre The Fisherman and His Wife is a classic childrens faerie tale from the talented pens of the Brothers Grimm.

About the Book This is a wonderful story about a magical fish, and the consequences of greed. Why did I choose this book to read?/5. Jacob fell immediately in love with Laban’s youngest daughter, Rachel, and worked seven years to marry her. Unfortunately Laban deceived him into marrying her sister, Leah, and Jacob had to work seven more years to marry his first love.

Between Jacob’s two wives and their maidservants, he had twelve sons and one daughter. As we progress through the stories about Jacob and his family, you will notice that his wives are respectfully addressed by name while Bilhah and Zilpah are repeatedly called, ‘the maidservants.’ Culturally, they were never elevated to the level of either Leah or Rachel – and they probably never expected to be.

Fearing that Laban would again attempt to prevent Jacob from leaving his service, Jacob secretly took his wives and children, and all that he owned, crossed the Euphrates River, and headed for Canaan. In contemplating this move, Jacob was probably grazing his flocks close to the Euphrates, as is indicated by GenesisAt the time, Laban.

The Book of Jacob the Brother of Nephi. The words of his preaching unto his brethren. He confoundeth a man who seeketh to overthrow the doctrine of Christ. A few words concerning the history of the people of Nephi.

Chapter 1. Jacob and Joseph seek to persuade men to believe in Christ and keep His commandments—Nephi dies—Wickedness prevails. Jacob Returns to Bethel 1 Then God said to Jacob, “Arise, go up to Bethel, and settle there. Build an altar there to the God who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau.” 2 So Jacob told his household and all who were with him, “Get rid of the foreign gods that are among you.

Purify yourselves and change your garments. 3 Then let us arise and go to Bethel. Jacob had finally returned to Canaan, the land of his father, Isaac. He had made peace with his brother, Esau. God blessed him and was with him all the days of his life.

His 12 sons multiplied their families. They became known as the 12 tribes of Israel. Joseph, one of Jacob’s younger sons, was taken to Egypt as a slave when he was a young.It was because these people in Caʹnaan worshiped false gods. They were not good people to have as husbands and wives, and they weren’t good people to have as close friends.

So we can be sure that Jacob would not be pleased that his daughter was making friends with these Caʹnaanite girls. Sure enough, Diʹnah got into trouble.Tricked by his father-in-law into marrying his true love’s sister, Jacob waited 14 years before he could be with Rachel.

When Jacob met Rachel he kissed her and “lifted up his voice, and wept.
