September 6 Genesis 29 Jacob the cheat is schooled

Jacob is running from his father and brother because of his deceit, now he comes to his uncle Laban who is also a cheat and will learn some lessons. My translation says that Leah's eyes were weak but Rachel was beautiful. It's a colloquialism for a homely girl, translation is that Leah was homely and Rachel a beauty. It's unfortunate that we don't know more about the people than this. Both girls are used by their father for his personal gains. Jacob apparently got over Leah's appearance as they have four sons together but I wonder how the relationship was, considering the means by which they were tricked. The text would indicate that there wasn't much love from Jacob to Leah. I suppose the simple lessons here are to be careful who you deal with and inspect the product before using it.
