Genesis 30

1  And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

2  And Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in God's stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

3  And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; and she shall bear upon my knees, that I may also have children by her.

4  And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went in unto her.

5  And Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son.

6  And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan.

7  And Bilhah Rachel's maid conceived again, and bare Jacob a second son.

8  And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.

9  When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her maid, and gave her Jacob to wife.

10  And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a son.
