JACOB AND LABAN BIBLE STUDY
JACOB AND RACHEL BIBLE STORY ON LOVE
Look who has joined us for another slice of
Glad ya did ... We're well into the middle of the book of Genesis now and
we're finding out about the life of Jacob. He has been living with his Uncle
Laban while in hiding from his brother Esau, who is enraged because Jacob
overtook his inheritance and his blessing. He's been there for at least 14
years now and Laban's two daughters, Leah and Rachel are his wives. He is
ready to leave Haran to go back to
his homeland, where God promised he would return. Laban doesn't want him to
leave because the Lord has blessed Laban since Jacob arrived. Jacob has
eleven sons and one daughter now and wants to have his own place and
increase his family for God instead of working to increase Laban's wealth.
Jacob struck a deal with Laban about
remaining with him for a while longer. He agreed to stay on and raise
Laban's livestock if he could separate the spotted and speckled animals and
the brown sheep for his payment. Any newborn livestock that were speckled
or spotted and any sheep that were brown would become Jacobs. With the
Lord's help, Jacob found a way to multiply and strengthen the spotted and
speckled livestock while Laban's animals remained few and feeble. Laban was
a little disturbed and his attitude toward Jacob turned sour.
JACOB AND LABAN DISPUTE
JACOB AND RACHEL BIBLE STORY ON LEAVING HARAN
When Jacob had been in Haran for
twenty years, the Lord talked to him saying, Go back to the land of your
fathers and your family and I'll be with you.
In secret Jacob said to Leah and
Rachel, Your father's feelings toward me have changed, but God has been with
me. You know that I worked honestly for your father, and he changed my
payment ten times these last six years, but God didn't allow him to hurt
me. If Laban said the speckled will be your payment, then all the newborn
cattle were speckled and if he said the striped will be your payment then
all the newborn were striped. So God took away all your father's cattle and
gave them to me. And God told me to leave here and go back to the land of
Leah and Rachel wanted to leave with
Jacob. They said that they were strangers in their father's house being as
he had sold them and spent all their inheritance too. But before they left,
Rachel had stolen some false idol figurines that were Laban's.
Then without Laban knowing it, Jacob
left with his children, his wives, his flocks, his herds and all that he
owned and set out to go back to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.
It was three days later when Laban
learned that Jacob had left. With his brothers, Laban followed after Jacob
for seven days. God came to Laban in a dream and told him to be careful not
to speak to Jacob either good or bad. When he caught up to Jacob in the
mountain of Gilead, Laban asked, Why did you leave without telling me and
take my daughters like hostages? I could have made a going away
celebration, but you didn't even let me kiss my daughters and my
grandchildren good-bye. You've acted foolishly and I have the right to
punish you, but last night the God of your father told me not to speak good
or bad to you. I know you feel like you need to go and you're homesick, but
why did you steal my gods?
JACOB AND LABAN MEET UP
JACOB AND RACHEL BIBLE STORY ON THEFT
Jacob didn't know that Rachel had
taken the images. He answered, I left secretly because I thought you
wouldn't let me take Leah and Rachel with me. As for your gods, whoever you
find them with, let him die. In front of our brothers, if you find that
I've taken anything of yours, take it.
Laban searched Jacob's tent, and
Leah's, and the two maidservant's tents, but he didn't find them. Then he
went into Rachel's tent. Rachel had hidden the idols in the camel's saddle
and was sitting on it. She said to her father, Please don't be offended
that I don't get up, but I'm not well. Laban didn't find the images.
Jacob grew angry and snapped at Laban,
What did I do that you want to accuse me of so badly? You have searched
everything I have, and what have you found of yours? Prove it here in front
of our brothers so they can judge between us. For twenty years now I've
been with you and I haven't eaten anything I didn't earn. Whatever was
killed by beasts, I didn't tell you, but paid for it out of my own pocket
whether it happened in front of your own eyes or in the dark of night. In
the daytime, the heat exhausted me and I didn't sleep in the cold of night.
For twenty years I served you, fourteen years for your two daughters and six
years for the cattle and you've changed my wages ten times. If it wasn't
for God and your fear of Isaac, you would've sent me away with nothing. But
God knows my suffering and the labor of my hands, and He warned you last
JACOB AND LABAN MAKE PEACE
JACOB AND RACHEL BIBLE STORY EXPLAINED
Laban said, These are my daughters and
my grandchildren, and these are my cattle and all that you see is mine. But
what can I do for them? Let's make an agreement between us. They built a
pillar of stones and Laban said, This heap of stones is a sign of our
agreement. The Lord watch between you and I when we are apart. If you ever
hurt my daughters, or if you take other wives beside them, may God judge
This pillar of stones between us is a
witness and a landmark that I will not pass over it to you and that you will
not pass over it to me to do each other harm. The God of Abraham, and the
God of Nahor, the God of their father, judge between us. And Jacob promised
earnestly. Then he offered a sacrifice and they all ate bread and stayed
all night in the mountain of Gilead.
The next morning Laban woke up and
kissed his daughters and his grandchildren, blessed them and went back to
his home in Haran.
JACOB AND LABAN MAKE SUMMARY
JACOB AND RACHEL BIBLE STORY CONCLUSION
So, what started out as a departure on bad terms turned out to be peaceful
because of God's encouragement. You should try to do the same in your relationships with those around you and those you encounter. You won't want to miss our next story when Jacob continues his journey home and finds himself having a wrestling match with ... God!
