Roles Breeding Superior Animals
Roles breeding superior animals Jacob answered: Youve seen how hard Ive worked for you, and you know how your flocks and herds have grown under my care. You didnt have much before I came, but the Lord has blessed everything I have ever done for you. Now its time for me to start looking out for my own family. How much do you want me to pay you? Laban asked.
Then Jacob told him: I dont want you to pay me anything. Just do one thing, and Ill take care of your sheep and goats. Let me go through your flocks and herds and take the sheep and goats that are either spotted or speckled and the black lambs. Thats all you need to give me. In the future you can easily find out if Ive been honest.
Just look and see if my animals are either spotted
or speckled, or if the lambs are black.
If they arent, theyve been stolen from you. I agree to that, was Labans response.
Before the end of the day, Laban had separated his spotted and speckled animals and the black lambs from the others and had put his sons in charge of them. Then Laban made Jacob keep the rest of the sheep and goats at a distance of three days journey. Jacob cut branches from some poplar trees and from some almond and evergreen trees.
He peeled off part of the bark and made the branches look spotted and speckled. Then he put the branches where the sheep and goats would see them while they were drinking from the water trough.

The goats mated there in front of the branches, and their young were spotted and speckled. Some of the sheep that Jacob was keeping for Laban were already spotted. And when the others were ready to mate, he made sure that they faced in the direction of the spotted and black ones. In this way, Jacob built up a flock of sheep for himself and did not put them with the other sheep. When the
stronger sheep were mating near the drinking place, Jacob made sure that the spotted branches were there. Roles breeding superior.
But he would not put out the branches when the weaker animals were mating. So Jacob got all of the healthy animals, and Laban got what was left. Jacob soon became rich and successful. He owned many sheep, goats, camels, and donkeys, as well as a lot of slaves. Genesis 30:29-43
