I am unworthy of all the lovingkindness and of all the faithfulness which You have shown to Your servant; for with my staff only I crossed this Jordan, and now I have become two companies. (Genesis 32:10)

"Deliver me, I pray, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau; for I fear him, that he will come and attack me and the mothers with the children. (Genesis 32:11)

"For You said, `I will surely prosper you and make your descendants as the sand of the sea, which is too great to be numbered.' " (Genesis 32:12)
