Jacob meets Laban
(from Genesis chapter 29 verses 1 to 15)





Jacob left Bethel.

Soon he came to a well.

Some shepherds came to the well.

They came to get water for their sheep.

Jacob asked them where they lived.

They said, “We live in Haran.”

The shepherds knew Laban and his family.


Laban had a daughter called Rachel.

She came to the well with her sheep.

Jacob told Rachel who he was.

He was one of her family too.  He was Rebekah’s son.

Rachel was pleased.

She ran home to tell her father, Laban.

Laban was pleased.  He ran to meet Jacob.

He was very pleased to see Jacob.

Jacob went home with Laban.  He worked for him.
