JACOB THE DECEIVED. Having now been tricked by his father-in-law Laban, Jacob (center): protests in this etching Jacob and Laban with Leah and Rachel (1638) by Sisto Badolocchio that the older daughter, Leah (left), was switched for his beloved Rachel (right center): on the wedding night. Nonetheless, Jacob has taken his conjugal privileges with Leah. He has received the benefit of his agreement, but he is once again prepared to strike a bargain. He agrees to look after Laban’s flock for an additional seven years in return for having Rachel also as his wife. By having the rights of the firstborn (Leah) turned against him, Jacob receives a taste of the deceit he used against his brother Esau.
