Fathers Of Israel:
Jacob Meets Esau Again (Genesis 32:9-33:17; 35:1-29) - - - - - - - Section 16
(9) And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, the LORD which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee:
(10) I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.
(11) Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children.
(12) And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.
(13) And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother;
(14) Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams,
(15) Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals.
(16) And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove.
(17) And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose are these before thee?
(18) Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob's; it is a present sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.
(19) And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find him.
(20) And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.
(21) So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night in the company.
(22) And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok.
(23) And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had.
(24) And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
(25) And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.
(26) And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.
(27) And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
(28) And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
(29) And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.
(30) And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
(31) And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh.
(32) Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in the sinew that shrank.
~ Genesis 32:9-32 King James Version
(1) And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.
(2) And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.
(3) And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.
(4) And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.
(5) And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant.
(6) Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves.
(7) And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves.
(8) And he said, What meanest thou by all this drove which I met? And he said, These are to find grace in the sight of my lord.
(9) And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast unto thyself.
(10) And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast pleased with me.
(11) Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took it.
(12) And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go before thee.
(13) And he said unto him, My lord knoweth that the children are tender, and the flocks and herds with young are with me: and if men should overdrive them one day, all the flock will die.
(14) Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant: and I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the children be able to endure, until I come unto my lord unto Seir.
(15) And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee some of the folk that are with me. And he said, What needeth it? let me find grace in the sight of my lord.
(16) So Esau returned that day on his way unto Seir.
(17) And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.
~ Genesis 33:1-17 King James Version
(1) And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.
(2) Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments:
(3) And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.
(4) And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.
(5) And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.
(6) So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Bethel, he and all the people that were with him.
(7) And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel: because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.
(8) But Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried beneath Bethel under an oak: and the name of it was called Allonbachuth.
(9) And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him.
(10) And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.
(11) And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins;
(12) And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.
(13) And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him.
(14) And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon.
(15) And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel.
(16) And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.
(17) And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.
(18) And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.
(19) And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem.
(20) And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day.
(21) And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.
(22) And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:
(23) The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:
(24) The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:
(25) And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:
(26) And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid; Gad, and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padanaram.
(27) And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.
(28) And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years.
(29) And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
