Being the mother of six of Jacob’s twelve sons, Leah had an important role as one of the mothers of the Israelite nation (Genesis 30:1-19; Genesis 35:23). She was not the wife Jacob chose for himself, and the ill-feeling between her and Jacob’s chosen wife Rachel created many difficulties in Jacob’s household. (For details see JACOB; RACHEL.)
