Marriage to Jacob[edit]

Rachel
Rachel
and Jacob
Jacob
by James Tissot.

Rachel
Rachel
is first mentioned in the Hebrew Bible
Hebrew Bible
in Genesis 29 when Jacob happens upon her as she is about to water her father's flock. She was the second daughter of Laban, Rebekah’s brother.[3] Jacob
Jacob
had traveled a great distance to find Laban. Rebekah
Rebekah
had sent him there to be safe from his furious twin brother, Esau. During Jacob's stay, he fell in love with Rachel
Rachel
and agreed to work seven years for Laban in return for her hand in marriage. On the night of the wedding, the bride was veiled and Jacob
Jacob
did not notice that Leah, Rachel's older sister, had been substituted for Rachel. Whereas " Rachel
Rachel
was lovely in form and beautiful", " Leah
Leah
had tender eyes".[4] Later Jacob
Jacob
confronted Laban, who excused his own deception by insisting that the older sister should marry first. He assured Jacob that after his wedding week was finished, he could take Rachel
Rachel
as a wife as well, and work another seven years as payment for her. When God
God
“saw that Leah
Leah
was unloved, he opened her womb” (Gen 29:31), and she gave birth to four sons. Rachel, like Sarah
Sarah
and Rebecca, remained unable to conceive. According to Tikva Frymer-Kensky, "The infertility of the matriarchs has two effects: it heightens the drama of the birth of the eventual son, marking Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph
Joseph
as special; and it emphasizes that pregnancy is an act of God."[5] Rachel
Rachel
became jealous of Leah
Leah
and gave Jacob
Jacob
her maidservant, Bilhah, to be a surrogate mother for her. Bilhah gave birth to two sons that Rachel
Rachel
named and raised (Dan and Naphtali). Leah
Leah
responds by offering her handmaid Zilpah to Jacob, and names and raises the two sons (Gad and Asher) that Zilpah bears. According to some commentaries, Bilhah and Zilpah are actually half-sisters of Leah
Leah
and Rachel.[6] After Leah conceived again, Rachel
Rachel
was finally blessed with a son, Joseph,[3] who would become Jacob's favorite child. Rachel's children[edit] Rachel's son, Joseph, was destined to be the leader of Israel's tribes between exile and nationhood. This role is exemplified in the Biblical story of Joseph, who prepared the way in Egypt
Egypt
for his family's exile there,[7] and in the future figure of Mashiach ben Yosef (Messiah, son of Joseph), who, in the Rabbinic Jewish view, will fight the apocalyptic Wars of Gog and Magog, preparing the way for the kingship of Mashiach ben David
Mashiach ben David
(Messiah, son of David) and the messianic age.[citation needed]

sitting on the idols.

After Joseph's birth, Jacob
Jacob
decided to return to the land of Canaan with his family.[3] Fearing that Laban would deter him, he fled with his two wives, Leah
Leah
and Rachel, and twelve children without informing his father-in-law. Laban pursued him and accused him of stealing his idols. Indeed, Rachel
Rachel
had taken her father's idols, hidden them inside her camel's seat cushion, and sat upon them. Laban had neglected to give his daughters their inheritance (Gen 31:14–16). Rachel
Rachel
becomes a trickster like her father, her aunt (Rebekah), and her husband.[5] Not knowing that the idols were in his wife's possession, Jacob pronounced a curse on whoever had them: "With whoever you will find your gods, he will not live" (Genesis 31:32). Laban proceeded to search the tents of Jacob
Jacob
and his wives, but when he came to Rachel's tent, she told her father, "Let not my lord be angered that I cannot rise up before you, for the way of women is upon me" (Genesis 31:35). Laban left her alone, but the curse Jacob
Jacob
had pronounced came true shortly thereafter. Death and burial[edit]

Rachel's Tomb, near Bethlehem, 1891

Near Ephrath, Rachel
Rachel
went into a difficult labor with her second son, Benjamin. The midwife told her in the middle of the birth that her child was a boy.[8] Before she died, Rachel
Rachel
named her son Ben Oni ("son of my mourning"), but Jacob
Jacob
called him Ben Yamin (Benjamin). Rashi
Rashi
explains that Ben Yamin either means "son of the right" (i.e., "south"), since Benjamin
Benjamin
was the only one of Jacob's sons born in Canaan, which is to the south of Paddan Aram; or it could mean "son of my days", as Benjamin
Benjamin
was born in Jacob's old age. Rachel
Rachel
was buried by Jacob
Jacob
on the road to Efrat, just outside Bethlehem,[9] and not in the ancestral tomb at Machpelah. Today a site claimed to be Rachel's Tomb, located between Bethlehem
Bethlehem
and the Israeli settlement of Gilo, is visited by tens of thousands of visitors each year.[10]. The Rachel's thomb is told to be in the ancient city of Zelzah in the land of the Tribe
Tribe
of Benjamin
Benjamin
(First Book of Samuel, chapter 10, v. 2). Additional references in the Bible[edit]

Rachel
Rachel
is weeping for her children, 14th century fresco from Marko's Monastery.

Mordecai, the hero of the Book of Esther, and Queen Esther
Esther
herself, were descendants of Rachel
Rachel
through her son Benjamin. The Book of Esther
Esther
details Mordecai's lineage as " Mordecai
Mordecai
the son of Yair, the son of Shimi, the son of Kish, a man of the right (ish yemini)" ( Esther
Esther
2:5). The designation of ish yemini refers to his membership in the Tribe
Tribe
of Benjamin
Benjamin
(ben yamin, son of the right). The rabbis comment that Esther's ability to remain silent in the palace of Ahasuerus, resisting the king's pressure to reveal her ancestry, was inherited from her ancestor Rachel, who remained silent even when Laban brought out Leah
Leah
to marry Jacob. After the tribes of Ephraim
Ephraim
and Benjamin
Benjamin
were exiled by the Assyrians, Rachel
Rachel
was remembered as the classic mother who mourns and intercedes for her children.[5] Jeremiah
Jeremiah
31:15, speaks of ' Rachel
Rachel
weeping for her children' (KJV). This is interpreted in Judaism
Judaism
as Rachel
Rachel
crying for an end to her descendants' sufferings and exiles following the destruction by the Babylonians of the First Temple
First Temple
in ancient Jerusalem. According to the Midrash, Rachel
Rachel
spoke before God: "If I, a mere mortal, was prepared not to humiliate my sister and was willing to take a rival into my home, how could You, the eternal, compassionate God, be jealous of idols, which have no true existence, that were brought into Your home (the Temple in Jerusalem)? Will You cause my children to be exiled on this account?" God
God
accepted her plea and promised that, eventually, the exile would end and the Jews
Jews
would return to their land.[11] In the second chapter of the Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of Matthew
(part of the New Testament), this reference from Jeremiah
Jeremiah
is interpreted as a prediction of the Massacre of the Innocents
Massacre of the Innocents
by Herod the Great
Herod the Great
in his attempt to kill the young Jesus. The Jeremaic prophecy is the inspiration behind the medieval dramatic cycle Ordo Rachelis, concerned with the infancy of Jesus.

In Islam[edit] Despite not being named in the Quran, Rachel
Rachel
(Arabic: رَاحِـيْـل‎, Rāḥīl) is honored in Islam
Islam
as the wife of Jacob
Jacob
and mother of Joseph,[12] who are frequently mentioned by name in the Qur'an
Qur'an
as Ya‘qūb (Arabic: يَـعْـقُـوْب‎) and Yūsuf (Arabic: يُـوْسُـف‎), respectively.[13][14] References[edit]

had tender eyes" (Hebrew: ועיני לאה רכות) (Genesis 29:17). It is debated as to whether the adjective "tender" (רכות) should be taken to mean "delicate and soft" or "weary". Some translations say that it may have meant blue or light colored eyes. Some say that Leah
