The elder daughter of Laban, given to Jacob as wife through the artifice of her father. She was 'tender eyed,' and not as beautiful as Rachel; but she was blessed of God in bearing to Jacob six sons and one daughter, and was thus the mother of the heads of the important tribes of Reuben, Levi, and Judah, as well as of Simeon, Issachar, and Zebulun. Genesis 29:16-35 ; Genesis 30:9-21 ; Genesis 31:4,14,33 ; Genesis 33:1,2,7 ; Genesis 49:31 .
