    Jacob literally has sex with three women in this chapter and I'm not sure what to think.

    All these are part of God's plan.

    and it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods.
    But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.
    Jacob took away Easu's blessings and now with witchcraft the best of Lebans cattle. Jacob don't seem very honest

    Nowhere does God say it is ok to take more than one wife. 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. As we can know by reading the scripture their are work's of man.

    Verse 43~Jehovah God saw the injustice that Jacob faced with his father-in-law and he blessed Jacob for his endurance and faith.

    Verse 1: Rachel had very strong feelings about having children and not being able to. She felt as if she would die if she could not have children.
  • Hebrew Israelite
    I get it that's where the 12 tribes comes from
  • Seven Trumpets
    The beginning of God's bringing to pass His promise to Abraham was the increasing of Jacob's sons, and of all his wealth, as a hired servant among "brethren" according to the flesh; and how God shows the superiority of His Elect and Beloved Ones, over the others who may appear to be greater in this world. When Jesus comes, He will take away all that the ungodly trust in, and give it to His Saints.

    God Promise that he would bless Jacob seed and that was fulfilled here Jacob had 12 sons...always trust in God Words because he never fails...we fail to fulfill promises some times but God never fails
  • HENRY S STEWART
    god is still working behind the scenes. as he continue to bless jacob
  • Yosev Adzungweh for verse 24
    The Circumstances Surrounding The Birth Of Joseph Shows That If We Pray With Sincerity Of Heart To God He Will Surely Answer Us.We Should Also Have Faith In God That No Time Is Late, With All Mockery, Rachel Prayed Earnestly And With Sincerity Of Heart That God Should Give A Son And God Finally Granted Her Heart Desire. She Conceived And Gave Birth To A Son And Named Him Joseph Saying God Has Taken Away Her Shame And May God Add To Her Another Son, To God Be The Glory, Joseph Grew Up And Became The Lord Of Egypt.

    I am somewhat disappointed by the profane behavior of barren Rachel who, for some few mandrakes, forfeited an opportunity to conceive in favor of Lea who seized it and had a 5th child, Issachar. In so doing, Rachel acted just like Esau who sold his birthright to Jacob for some lentils. In this perilous time we are living, it is capital to fight against intemperance and shun all gratification of our appetites so as not to forfeit spiritual blessings, the lost of which might have eternal consequences.

    Seek the Kingdom of God 's first into your heart and all things that you need in thine heart will be follow. Seek deligently Jesus in to your life for He is the door, any man who inter 's in will be save. Dont be afraid trusting God and trusting Jesus also for nothing is impossible with God. Whe who loves God will keep his words and obey his commandments until rapture. Be blessed and keep rejoicing and thanking God for everything he have done into your lives. Jesus loves you
  • Leron
    We were talking the other day how Leah felt that with the children she had born to Jacob that he would bonded to her more. The thought came to me that if we really want to be bonded to Jesus Christ that we should bring as many people into the kingdom of God as we can.
  • DONCELLA for verse 43
    My pastor said We give because we get the opportunity not becsuse we have to Doncella
  • Steve chinedu
    U see, God have always paved way dat his people must follow. Pls frnds bible is not a shakespear book once d spirit of God is not in you, u can't understand it
  • Richard
    Now the reason why God wants that first born set aside for him..Is because without that first born son There would be no message.!! The flesh blood line would not have gone forward And the secret or mystery why we are here would not have been able to been figured out... Or know Christ would have died on the cross for our sins..When Cain knew what he did he said what he said to the Lord because he knew That my punishment is more than I can bear And knowing what he felt and did he knew that someone could come and kill him Or have enmity toward him..!!The first example of the first born ever born from the flesh example of what and how we all can be and have in our hearts enmity ,in the flesh..So the Lord mark him... To begin The Living Word
  • Richard
    Oh my....Nowhere in God's Word does it say the first born daughter is to be married first Or male Only Like Laden and everybody else says it's our customer.!!!!!!The only thing that God says is that the firstborn of cattle And the firstborn of men Are to be set aside because they are mine.!!! We know what the firstborn of the cattle are for atonement this ends of the family Or person It is unclear why the firstborn are to be set aside however I believe, or I know it's because they insure a bloodline carry forward in the flesh..!The first born is to receive a double portion of the inheritance And has the right to be the head of that house.!!!And a woman if she is not married is to receive a heritage.!! Read people ..
  • Richard
    Harry Jesus says I change not one jot of the law That is one tittle or dot Our fathers laws from the first five books of the Bible are very much in affect the statutes and ordinances When Jesus died on the cross he Took the place of one law Which is even still a law That a blood sacrifice Of a animal was no longer needed to atone for ones sins..Read my good sir...!!!!!
  • Sharon
    sowing is much easier than reaping! jacob deceived his father and reaped the consequences of getting ahead of God. God does and did forgive, but, that forgiveness does not erase the depth of our actions or the consequences. Just as He does today, God was merciful unto Jacob inspite of his deceit!
  • Akwasi for verse 22
    Christians should have faith in Our LORD JESUS in everything. We need to pray to HIM without ceasing as written in the BIBLE.
  • Herman German III
    For us, that question of intercourse and marriages, when did God ever mention about the Sabbath, honoring mom and father, coveting, etc... Not until Moses because then Jesus came and explained it all. Please don't let America tell you what is right or wrong, as opposed to God. If marriage was not between man and woman, where would we be?
  • HARRY ALLISON and BEAUTIFUL WIFE SHIRLEY.
    Deceit, jealousy, pride, envy and all other sins are still alive today! Although now we have HOPE in JESUS who died for our sins. HE broke the chains and did away with the law. JESUS wants a relationship with us!
  • DENISE
    I feel that we can also learn from this, waiting, trusting and having faith in God. Because if we decide to do it our way, itís not going to work. At the end itís going to be what God said it would be. We will always have to do it Godís way for it to work.
  • Debra Webb
    I was rather shocked at how the two sisters played themselves against each other. I'm so happy that we are no longer under the law, but under grace and truth. It's amazing how Jacob got the cattle, sheep, goats, and asses to be become speckled and spotted. Thank you God for Giving your son. And in return your son giving his blood shed for me! Hallelujah Praise the Lord.
  • God's word is unbroken. He means what He says and He does that truly and faithfully.
  • Osondu Onwuzuruigbo
    Rachel had a need and desired a change but lacked understanding, character and a sense of where lies her solution. Although it was for Leah's sake, Leah was not the cause of Rachel's barreness. All Rachel needed to have done was to change her attitude towards Leah, instead, she completely ignored God and arrogantly sought the solution of her barreness from Jacob who did not possess the power to help. Ill character and misdirection of hope surely will prolong ones deliverance.
  • Sister for verse 15
    i think thjat she wanted to please her husband so bad she would have done anything for him to be happy even if she didn't want tor the lord wait for the lord sometimes we love to strong for our man
  • Sparkle
    Did Jesus come and end all this by giving strict commands as to marriage and number of wives. Somebody did because I dont remember reading so much incest and multiple marriages in the New Testement.
