29:24 Laban had also given his servant Zilpah to his daughter Leah to be her handmaid.
Vayiten Lavan lah et-Zilpah shifchato le-Leah vito shifchah.
29:25 In the morning, [Jacob discovered that] it was Leah. He said to Laban, 'How could you do this to me? Didn't I work with you for Rachel? Why did you cheat me?'
Vayehi vaboker vehineh-hi Leah vayomer el-Lavan mah-zot asitah li halo veRachel avadeti imach velamah rimitani.



Commentary:

handmaid
  A servant rather than a slave (Lekach Tov; Josephus, Antiquities 1:19:8).
