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.
11)And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad.
12)And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a second son.
13)And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me blessed: and she called his name Asher.
14)And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found mandrakes in the field, and brought them unto his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy son's mandrakes.
15)And she said unto her, Is it a small matter that thou hast taken my husband? and wouldest thou take away my son's mandrakes also? And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with thee to night for thy son's mandrakes.
16)And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I have hired thee with my son's mandrakes. And he lay with her that night.
17)And God hearkened unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare Jacob the fifth son.
18)And Leah said, God hath given me my hire, because I have given my maiden to my husband: and she called his name Issachar.
19)And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.
20)And Leah said, God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she called his name Zebulun.
21)And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her name Dinah.
22)And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.
23)And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach:
24)And she called his name Joseph; and said, The LORD shall add to me another son.
25)And it came to pass, when Rachel had born Joseph, that Jacob said unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own place, and to my country.
26)Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have served thee, and let me go: for thou knowest my service which I have done thee.
27)And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the LORD hath blessed me for thy sake.
28)And he said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it.
29)And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how thy cattle was with me.
30)For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is now increased unto a multitude; and the LORD hath blessed thee since my coming: and now when shall I provide for mine own house also?
31)And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou shalt not give me any thing: if thou wilt do this thing for me, I will again feed and keep thy flock.
32)I will pass through all thy flock to day, removing from thence all the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my hire.
33)So shall my righteousness answer for me in time to come, when it shall come for my hire before thy face: every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the sheep, that shall be counted stolen with me.
34)And Laban said, Behold, I would it might be according to thy word.
35)And he removed that day the he goats that were ringstreaked and spotted, and all the she goats that were speckled and spotted, and every one that had some white in it, and all the brown among the sheep, and gave them into the hand of his sons.
36)And he set three days' journey betwixt himself and Jacob: and Jacob fed the rest of Laban's flocks.
37)And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and chestnut tree; and pilled white streaks in them, and made the white appear which was in the rods.
38)And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that they should conceive when they came to drink.
39)And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle ringstreaked, speckled, and spotted.
40)And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks toward the ringstreaked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban; and he put his own flocks by themselves, and put them not unto Laban's cattle.
41)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.
42)But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.
43)And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses.
Matthew 9
1)And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.
2)And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
3)And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.
4)And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
5)For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
6)But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
7)And he arose, and departed to his house.
8)But when the multitude saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.
9)And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
10)And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.
11)And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?
12)But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
13)But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
14)Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
15)And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
16)No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.
17)Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
18)While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
19)And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.
20)And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
21)For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
22)But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
23)And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
24)He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
25)But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
26)And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.
27)And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us.
28)And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
29)Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
30)And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
31)But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.
32)As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil.
33)And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.
34)But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.
35)And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
36)But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
37)Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38)Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
