Jacob Meets Esau
1 Then Jacob° lifted° his eyes° and looked°, and behold°, aEsau° was coming°, and four° hundred° men° with him. So he divided° the children° Iamong° Leah° and Rachel° and the two° maids°. 2 He put° the maids° and their children° Iin front°, and Leah° and her children° IInext°, and Rachel° and Joseph° IIlast°. 3 But he himself° passed° on ahead° of them and abowed° down° to the ground° seven° times°, until° he came° near° to his brother°.
4 ¶ Then Esau° ran° to meet° him and embraced° him, and afell° on his neck° and kissed° him, and they wept°. 5 He lifted° his eyes° and saw° the women° and the children°, and said°, “IWho° are these° with you?” So he said°, “aThe children° whom° God° has graciously° given° your servant°.” 6 Then the maids° came° near° Iwith 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 aall° this° company° which° I have met°?” And he said°, “bTo find° favor° in the sight° of my lord°.” 9 But Esau° said°, “aI 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°, Ifor I see° your face° as one sees° the face° of God°, and you have received° me favorably°. 11 Please° take° my Iagift° which° has been brought° to you, bbecause° God° has dealt° graciously° with me and because° I have° IIplenty°.” Thus he urged° him and he took° [it].

12 ¶ Then IEsau 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 Ia 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 aSeir°.”
15 ¶ Esau° said°, “Please° let me leave° with you some° of the people° who° are with me.” But he said°, “IWhat° need is there? aLet me find° favor° in the sight° of my lord°.” 16 So Esau° returned° that day° on his way° to Seir°. 17 Jacob° journeyed° to IaSuccoth°, 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 aShechem°, which° is in the land° of Canaan°, when he came° from bPaddan-aram°, and camped° before° the city°. 19 aHe 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° Ipieces° of money°. 20 Then he erected° there° an altar° and called° it IEl-Elohe-Israel°.

The kindness of Jacob and Esau at their meeting.
1 ¶ And Jacobº lifted upºª his eyes,º and looked,ºª and, behold,² Esauº came,ºª and with² him fourº hundredº men.º And he dividedºª² the childrenº unto² Leah,º and unto² Rachel,º and unto² the twoº handmaids.º 2 And he putºª² the handmaidsº and their childrenº foremost,º and Leahº and her childrenº after,º and Rachelº and Josephº hindermost.º 3 And he² passed overºª before² them,¹ and bowed himselfºª to the groundº sevenº times,º until² he came nearºª to² his brother.º 4 And Esauº ranºª to meet² him,¹ª and embracedºª him, and fellºª on² his neck,º and kissed² him:¹ª and they wept.ºª 5 And he lifted upºª² his eyes,º and sawºª² the womenº and the children;º and said,ºª Who² [are] thoseº with thee? And he said,ºª The childrenº which² Godº hath graciously givenºª² thy servant.º 6 Then the handmaidensº came near,ºª they² and their children,º and they bowed themselves.ºª 7 And Leahº also² with her childrenº came near,ºª and bowed themselves:ºª and afterº came¹ª Joseph¹ nearºª² and Rachel,º and they bowed¹ª themselves.² 8 And he said,ºª What² [meanest] thou by all² this² droveº which² I met?ºª And he said,ºª [These are] to findºª graceº in the sightº of my lord.º 9 And Esauº said,ºª I haveº enough,º my brother;º keep² that² thou hast unto thyself. 10 And Jacobº said,ºª Nay,² I pray thee,² if² now² I have foundºª graceº in thy sight,º then receiveºª my presentº at my hand:º² for² therefore²² I have seenºª thy face,º as though I had seenºª the faceº of God,º and thou wast pleased² with me.¹ª 11 Take,ºª I pray thee,²² my blessingº that² is broughtºª to thee; because² Godº hath dealt graciously² with me,¹ª and because¹ª² I haveº enough.º And he urgedºª him, and he tookºª [it]. 12 And he said,ºª Let us take our journey,ºª and let us go,¹ª² and I will go¹ª² before² thee. 13 And he saidºª unto² him, My lordº knowethºª that² the childrenº [are] tender,º and the flocksº and herdsº with youngºª [are] with² me: and if men should overdriveºª them oneº day,º all² the flockº will die.ºª 14 Let my lord,º I pray thee,² pass overºª beforeº his servant:º and I² will lead onºª softly,º according asº the cattleº that² goeth before² me¹ and the childrenº be able to endure,º until²² I comeºª unto² my lordº unto Seir.º 15 And Esauº said,ºª Let me now² leaveºª with² thee [some] of² the folkº that² [are] with² me. And he said,ºª Whatº needeth it?² let me findºª graceº in the sightº of my lord.º
