Genesis 33


33:1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau
 came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the
 children to Leah, and to Rachel, and to the two handmaids.
33:2 And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and
 Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.
33:3 And he passed on before them, and bowed himself to the
 ground seven times, till he came near to his brother.
33:4 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his
 neck, and kissed him: and they wept.
33:5 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the
 children, and said, Who [are] those with thee? And he said, The
 children which God hath graciously given to thy servant.
33:6 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children,
 and they bowed themselves.
33:7 And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed
 themselves; and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they
 bowed themselves.
33:8 And he said, What [meanest] thou by all this drove which I
 met? And he said, [these are] to find grace in the sight of my
 lord.
33:9 And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep what thou
 hast to thyself.
33:10 And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found
 grace in thy sight, then receive my present at my hand: for
 therefore I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the face
 of God, and thou hast been pleased with me.
33:11 Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee;
 because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have
 enough: and he urged him, and he took [it].
33:12 And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I
 will go before thee.
33:13 And he said to him, My lord knoweth that the children
 [are] tender, and the flocks and herds with young [are] with
 me, and if men should over-drive them one day, all the flock
 will die.
33:14 Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant:
 and I will lead on slowly, according as the cattle that go
 before me, and the children are able to endure; until I come to
 my lord to Seir.
33:15 And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee [some] of the
 people that [are] with me: And he said, What needeth it? Let me
 find grace in the sight of my lord.
33:16 So Esau returned that day on his way to Seir.
33:17 And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him a house, and
 made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is
 called Succoth.
33:18 And Jacob came to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which [is] in
 the land of Canaan, when he came from Padan-aram; and pitched
 his tent before the city.
33:19 And he bought a part of a field, where he had spread his
 tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem's father,
 for a hundred pieces of money.
33:20 And he erected there an altar, and called it
 El-elohe-Israel.
