11 And Lea said, [It is] happily: and she called his name, Gad. 12 And Zelpha the maid of Lea conceived yet again, and bore Jacob a second son. 13 And Lea said, I am blessed, for the women will pronounce me blessed; and she called his name, Aser. 14 And Ruben went in the day of barley-harvest, and found apples of mandrakes in the field, and brought them to his mother Lea; and Rachel said to Lea her sister, Give me of thy son's mandrakes. 15 And Lea said, [Is it] not enough for thee that thou hast taken my husband, wilt thou also take my son's mandrakes? And Rachel said, Not so: let him lie with thee to-night for thy son's mandrakes. 16 And Jacob came in out of the field at even; and Lea went forth to meet him, and said, Thou shalt come in to me this day, for I have hired thee for my son's mandrakes; and he lay with her that night. 17 And God hearkened to Lea, and she conceived, and bore Jacob a fifth son. 18 And Lea said, God has given me my reward, because I gave my maid to my husband; and she called his name Issachar, which is, Reward. 19 And Lea conceived again, and bore Jacob a sixth son. 20 And Lea said, God has given me a good gift in this time; my husband will choose me, for I have born him six sons: and she called his name, Zabulon.

11 καὶ εἶπε Λεία. ἐν τύχῃ· καὶ ἐπωνόμασε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Γάδ. 12 καὶ συνέλαβεν ἔτι Ζελφὰ ἡ παιδίσκη Λείας καὶ ἔτεκε τῷ ᾿Ιακὼβ υἱὸν δεύτερον. 13 καὶ εἶπε Λεία· μακαρία ἐγώ, ὅτι μακαριοῦσί με αἱ γυναῖκες· καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ᾿Ασήρ. 14 ᾿Επορεύθη δὲ Ρουβὴν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ θερισμοῦ πυρῶν καὶ εὗρε μῆλα μανδραγορῶν ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ καὶ ἤνεγκεν αὐτὰ πρὸς Λείαν τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ· εἶπε δὲ Ραχὴλ Λείᾳ τῇ ἀδελφῇ αὐτῆς· δός μοι τῶν μανδραγορῶν τοῦ υἱοῦ σου. 15 εἶπε δὲ Λεία· οὐχ ἱκανόν σοι ὅτι ἔλαβες τὸν ἄνδρα μου; μὴ καὶ τοὺς μανδραγόρας τοῦ υἱοῦ μου λήψῃ; εἶπε δὲ Ραχήλ· οὐχ οὕτως· κοιμηθήτω μετὰ σοῦ τὴν νύκτα ταύτην ἀντὶ τῶν μανδραγορῶν τοῦ υἱοῦ σου. 16 εἰσῆλθε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐξ ἀγροῦ ἑσπέρας, καὶ ἐξῆλθε Λεία εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῷ καὶ εἶπε· πρὸς ἐμὲ εἰσελεύσῃ σήμερον· μεμίσθωμαι γάρ σε ἀντὶ τῶν μανδραγορῶν τοῦ υἱοῦ μου. καὶ ἐκοιμήθη μετ᾿ αὐτῆς τὴν νύκτα ἐκείνην. 17 καὶ ἐπήκουσεν ὁ Θεὸς Λείας, καὶ συλλαβοῦσα ἔτεκε τῷ ᾿Ιακὼβ υἱὸν πέμπτον. 18 καὶ εἶπε Λεία· δέδωκέ μοι ὁ Θεὸς τὸν μισθόν μου, ἀνθ᾿ οὗ ἔδωκα τὴν παιδίσκην μου τῷ ἀνδρί μου· καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισσάχαρ, ὅ ἐστι μισθός. 19 καὶ συνέλαβεν ἔτι Λεία καὶ ἔτεκεν υἱὸν ἕκτον τῷ ᾿Ιακώβ. 20 καὶ εἶπε Λεία· δεδώρηται ὁ Θεός μοι δῶρον καλὸν ἐν τῷ νῦν καιρῷ· αἱρετιεῖ με ὁ ἀνήρ μου, τέτοκα γὰρ αὐτῷ υἱοὺς ἕξ· καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Ζαβουλών.
