that Jacob said unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own place, and to my country.
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.
And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have
found favor in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the
LORD hath blessed me

And he said, Appoint me
thy wages, and I will give it.
And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how thy cattle was with me.
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
