Genesis 29: 14-30

Genesis 29: 14-30 Marriage to Leah and Rachel
After reading how Jacob worked for Laban for seven years so he could marry Rachel only to be tricked into marrying Leah instead I started to feel bad for Jacob.  Then I thought back on the past few chapters about all of the tricking and deceiving that Jacob has done.  He traded some soup for his brother's birthright and then he dressed up as his brother had his mother cook some good food and then tricked his father into giving him his special blessing instead of giving it to his brother Esau.  After thinking about this I think that just maybe Jacob deserved to be tricked.
