Genesis 32:11

Lord, deliver me from Esau, for I fear him — The fear that quickens prayer is itself pleadable. It was not a robber, but a murderer that he was afraid of: nor was it his own life only that lay at stake, but the mothers, and the childrens.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

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 (e) mother with the children.

(e) Meaning, he will put all to death. This proverb comes from those who kill the bird together with the young ones.
