{Genesis 29:28} And Jacob 3290 did 6213 z8799 so, x3651 and fulfilled 4390 z8762 her x2063 week: 7620 and he gave 5414 z8799 him x853 Rachel 7354 his daughter 1323 to wife 802 also.
fulfilled her week:
The public marriage feast made on this occasion, seems to have formed the regular method of recognising the marriage, and lasted seven days. It would therefore have been improper to have broken off the solemnities to which all the men of the place had been invited ("And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast." {Gen 29:22}) and probably Laban wished to keep the fraud from the public eye. It is perfectly plain that Jacob did not serve seven years more before he got Rachel to wife. "And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also." {Gen 29:28}
