Jacob Meets Esau

1 Then Jacob lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, Esau R979 was coming, and four hundred men with him. So he divided the children among F631 Leah and Rachel and the two maids. 2 He put the maids and their children in F632 front, and Leah and her children next, F633 and Rachel and Joseph last. F633 3 But he himself passed on ahead of them and bowed R980 down to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.

4 Then Esau ran to meet him and embraced him, and fell R981 on his neck and kissed him, and they wept. 5 He lifted his eyes and saw the women and the children, and said, "Who F634 are these with you?" So he said, "The R982 children whom God has graciously given your servant." 6 Then the maids came near with F635 their children, and they bowed down. 7 Leah likewise came near with her children, and they bowed down; and afterward Joseph came near with Rachel, and they bowed down. 8 And he said, "What do you mean by all R983 this company which I have met?" And he said, "To R984 find favor in the sight of my lord." 9 But Esau said, "I R985 have plenty, my brother; let what you have be your own." 10 Jacob said, "No, please, if now I have found favor in your sight, then take my present from my hand, for F636 I see your face as one sees the face of God, and you have received me favorably. 11 "Please take my gift R986 F637 which has been brought to you, because R987 God has dealt graciously with me and because I have plenty." F638 Thus he urged him and he took it.

12 Then Esau F639 said, "Let us take our journey and go, and I will go before you." 13 But he said to him, "My lord knows that the children are frail and that the flocks and herds which are nursing are a F640 care to me. And if they are driven hard one day, all the flocks will die. 14 "Please let my lord pass on before his servant, and I will proceed at my leisure, according to the pace of the cattle that are before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my lord at Seir." R988

15 Esau said, "Please let me leave with you some of the people who are with me." But he said, "What F641 need is there? Let R989 me find favor in the sight of my lord." 16 So Esau returned that day on his way to Seir. 17 Jacob journeyed to Succoth, R990 F642 and built for himself a house and made booths for his livestock; therefore the place is named Succoth.

Jacob Settles in Shechem

18 Now Jacob came safely to the city of Shechem, R991 which is in the land of Canaan, when he came from Paddan-aram, R992 and camped before the city. 19 He R993 bought the piece of land where he had pitched his tent from the hand of the sons of Hamor, Shechem's father, for one hundred pieces F643 of money. 20 Then he erected there an altar and called it El-Elohe-Israel.
