And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah (Gen. 29:25).
Said he (Jacob) to her (Leah): "You are a deceiver and the daughter of a deceiver!" "Is there a teacher without pupils?" she retorted. "Did not your father call you Esau, and you answered him! So did you too call me and I answered you!" (Genesis Rabba 70:19).
This text shows that Jacob actually paid a price for his deceptive ways.
