29:14 'Yes indeed, you are my own flesh and blood,' said Laban.

Jacob remained with him for a month.
Vayomer lo Lavan ach atsmi uvesari atah vayeshev imo chodesh yamim.

29:15 Laban then said to Jacob, 'Just because you are my close relative, does it mean that you must work for me for nothing? Tell me what you want to be paid.'
Vayomer Lavan le-Ya'akov hachi-achi atah va'avadetani chinam hagidah li mah-maskurtecha.
