    Laban

    Father of Rachel who required Jacob to do fourteen years of agricultural work as the price for Jacob to marry her (Gen. 29: 1–30). His rapacious greed received a set‐back when Jacob and Rachel fled secretly to Canaan taking with them not only the teraphim—household images that conveyed rights of inheritance—but also Rachel's elder sister Leah, whom Laban had tricked Jacob into marrying first.
