Genesis 32:1-32

And Jacob
<03290>
went
<01980> (8804)
on his way
<01870>_,
and the angels
<04397>
of God
<0430>
met
<06293> (8799)
him.
And when Jacob
<03290>
saw them
<07200> (8804)_,
he said
<0559> (8799)_,
This [is] God's
<0430>
host
<04264>_:
and he called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
of that place
<04725>
Mahanaim
<04266>_.
{Mahanaim: that is, Two hosts, or, camps}
And Jacob
<03290>
sent
<07971> (8799)
messengers
<04397>
before him
<06440>
to Esau
<06215>
his brother
<0251>
unto the land
<0776>
of Seir
<08165>_,
the country
<07704>
of Edom
<0123>_.
{country: Heb. field}
And he commanded
<06680> (8762)
them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus shall ye speak
<0559> (8799)
unto my lord
<0113>
Esau
<06215>_;
Thy servant
<05650>
Jacob
<03290>
saith
<0559> (8804)
thus, I have sojourned
<01481> (8804)
with Laban
<03837>_,
and stayed there
<0309> (8799)
until now:
And I have oxen
<07794>_,
and asses
<02543>_,
flocks
<06629>_,
and menservants
<05650>_,
and womenservants
<08198>_:
and I have sent
<07971> (8799)
to tell
<05046> (8687)
my lord
<0113>_,
that I may find
<04672> (8800)
grace
<02580>
in thy sight
<05869>_.
And the messengers
<04397>
returned
<07725> (8799)
to Jacob
<03290>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
We came
<0935> (8804)
to thy brother
<0251>
Esau
<06215>_,
and also he cometh
<01980> (8802)
to meet thee
<07125> (8800)_,
and four hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
with him.
Then Jacob
<03290>
was greatly
<03966>
afraid
<03372> (8799)
and distressed
<03334> (8799)_:
and he divided
<02673> (8799)
the people
<05971>
that [was] with him, and the flocks
<06629>_,
and herds
<01241>_,
and the camels
<01581>_,
into two
<08147>
bands
<04264>_;
And said
<0559> (8799)_,
If Esau
<06215>
come
<0935> (8799)
to the one
<0259>
company
<04264>_,
and smite it
<05221> (8689)_,
then the other company
<04264>
which is left
<07604> (8737)
shall escape
<06413>_.
And Jacob
<03290>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
O God
<0430>
of my father
<01>
Abraham
<085>_,
and God
<0430>
of my father
<01>
Isaac
<03327>_,
the LORD
<03068>
which saidst
<0559> (8802)
unto me, Return
<07725> (8798)
unto thy country
<0776>_,
and to thy kindred
<04138>_,
and I will deal well
<03190> (8686)
with thee:
I am not worthy of the least
<06994> (8804)
of all the mercies
<02617>_,
and of all the truth
<0571>_,
which thou hast shewed
<06213> (8804)
unto thy servant
<05650>_;
for with my staff
<04731>
I passed over
<05674> (8804)
this Jordan
<03383>_;
and now I am become two
<08147>
bands
<04264>_.
{I am not...: Heb. I am less than all}
Deliver me
<05337> (8685)_,
I pray thee, from the hand
<03027>
of my brother
<0251>_,
from the hand
<03027>
of Esau
<06215>_:
for I fear
<03373>
him, lest he will come
<0935> (8799)
and smite me
<05221> (8689)_,
[and] the mother
<0517>
with
<05921>
the children
<01121>_.
{with: Heb. upon}
And thou saidst
<0559> (8804)_,
I will surely
<03190> (8687)
do thee good
<03190> (8686)_,
and make
<07760> (8804)
thy seed
<02233>
as the sand
<02344>
of the sea
<03220>_,
which cannot be numbered
<05608> (8735)
for multitude
<07230>_.
And he lodged
<03885> (8799)
there that same night
<03915>_;
and took
<03947> (8799)
of that which came
<0935> (8802)
to his hand
<03027>
a present
<04503>
for Esau
<06215>
his brother
<0251>_;
Two hundred
<03967>
she goats
<05795>_,
and twenty
<06242>
he goats
<08495>_,
two hundred
<03967>
ewes
<07353>_,
and twenty
<06242>
rams
<0352>_,
Thirty
<07970>
milch
<03243> (8688)
camels
<01581>
with their colts
<01121>_,
forty
<0705>
kine
<06510>_,
and ten
<06235>
bulls
<06499>_,
twenty
<06242>
she asses
<0860>_,
and ten
<06235>
foals
<05895>_.
And he delivered
<05414> (8799)
[them] into the hand
<03027>
of his servants
<05650>_,
every drove
<05739>
by themselves; and said
<0559> (8799)
unto his servants
<05650>_,
Pass over
<05674> (8798)
before me
<06440>_,
and put
<07760> (8799)
a space
<07305>
betwixt
<0996>
drove
<05739>
and
<0996>
drove
<05739>_.
And he commanded
<06680> (8762)
the foremost
<07223>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
When Esau
<06215>
my brother
<0251>
meeteth thee
<06298> (8799)_,
and asketh thee
<07592> (8804)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Whose [art] thou? and whither goest
<03212> (8799)
thou? and whose [are] these before
<06440>
thee?
Then thou shalt say
<0559> (8804)_,
[They be] thy servant
<05650>
Jacob's
<03290>_;
it [is] a present
<04503>
sent
<07971> (8803)
unto my lord
<0113>
Esau
<06215>_:
and, behold, also he [is] behind us
<0310>_.
And so
<01571>
commanded he
<06680> (8762)
the second
<08145>_,
and the third
<07992>_,
and all that followed
<01980> (8802) <0310>
the droves
<05739>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
On this manner
<01697>
shall ye speak
<01696> (8762)
unto Esau
<06215>_,
when ye find
<04672> (8800)
him.
And say ye
<0559> (8804)
moreover
<01571>_,
Behold, thy servant
<05650>
Jacob
<03290>
[is] behind us
<0310>_.
For he said
<0559> (8804)_,
I will appease
<03722> (8762)
him
<06440>
with the present
<04503>
that goeth
<01980> (8802)
before me
<06440>_,
and afterward
<0310>
I will see
<07200> (8799)
his face
<06440>_;
peradventure he will accept
<05375> (8799)
of me
<06440>_.
{of me: Heb. my face}
So went
<05674> (0)
the present
<04503>
over
<05674> (8799)
before him
<06440>_:
and himself lodged
<03885> (8804)
that night
<03915>
in the company
<04264>_.
And he rose up
<06965> (8799)
that night
<03915>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
his two
<08147>
wives
<0802>_,
and his two
<08147>
womenservants
<08198>_,
and his eleven
<06240> <0259>
sons
<03206>_,
and passed over
<05674> (8799)
the ford
<04569>
Jabbok
<02999>_.
And he took them
<03947> (8799)_,
and sent them over
<05674> (8686)
the brook
<05158>_,
and sent over
<05674> (8686)
that he had. {sent them: Heb. caused to pass}
And Jacob
<03290>
was left
<03498> (8735)
alone; and there wrestled
<079> (8735)
a man
<0376>
with him until the breaking
<05927> (8800)
of the day
<07837>_.
{breaking...: Heb. ascending of the morning}
And when he saw
<07200> (8799)
that he prevailed
<03201> (8804)
not against him, he touched
<05060> (8799)
the hollow of his thigh
<03409>_;
and the hollow
<03709>
of Jacob's
<03290>
thigh
<03409>
was out of joint
<03363> (8799)_,
as he wrestled
<079> (8736)
with him.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let me go
<07971> (8761)_,
for the day
<07837>
breaketh
<05927> (8804)_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not let thee go
<07971> (8762)_,
except
<0518>
thou bless
<01288> (8765)
me.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, What [is] thy name
<08034>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Jacob
<03290>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thy name
<08034>
shall be called
<0559> (8735)
no more Jacob
<03290>_,
but Israel
<03478>_:
for as a prince hast thou power
<08280> (8804)
with God
<0430>
and with men
<0582>_,
and hast prevailed
<03201> (8799)_.
{Israel: that is, A prince of God}
And Jacob
<03290>
asked
<07592> (8799)
[him], and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Tell
<05046> (8685)
[me], I pray thee, thy name
<08034>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wherefore [is] it
<02088>
[that] thou dost ask
<07592> (8799)
after my name
<08034>_?
And he blessed
<01288> (8762)
him there.
And Jacob
<03290>
called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
of the place
<04725>
Peniel
<06439>_:
for I have seen
<07200> (8804)
God
<0430>
face
<06440>
to face
<06440>_,
and my life
<05315>
is preserved
<05337> (8735)_.
{Peniel: that is, The face of God}
And as he passed over
<05674> (8804)
Penuel
<06439>
the sun
<08121>
rose
<02224> (8799)
upon him, and he halted
<06760> (8802)
upon his thigh
<03409>_.
Therefore the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
eat
<0398> (8799)
not [of] the sinew
<01517>
which shrank
<05384>_,
which [is] upon the hollow
<03709>
of the thigh
<03409>_,
unto this day
<03117>_:
because he touched
<05060> (8804)
the hollow
<03709>
of Jacob's
<03290>
thigh
<03409>
in the sinew
<01517>
that shrank
<05384>_.
