GEN 33:1 And Jacob lifteth up his eyes, and looketh, and lo, Esau is coming, and with him four hundred men; and he divideth the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two maid-servants;

GEN 33:2 and he setteth the maid-servants and their children first, and Leah and her children behind, and Rachel and Joseph last.

GEN 33:3 And he himself passed over before them, and boweth himself to the earth seven times, until his drawing nigh unto his brother,

GEN 33:4 and Esau runneth to meet him, and embraceth him, and falleth on his neck, and kisseth him, and they weep;

GEN 33:5 and he lifteth up his eyes, and seeth the women and the children, and saith, `What `are' these to thee?' And he saith, `The children with whom God hath favoured thy servant.'

GEN 33:6 And the maid-servants draw nigh, they and their children, and bow themselves;

GEN 33:7 and Leah also draweth nigh, and her children, and they bow themselves; and afterwards Joseph hath drawn nigh with Rachel, and they bow themselves.

GEN 33:8 And he saith, `What to thee `is' all this camp which I have met?' and he saith, `To find grace in the eyes of my lord.'

GEN 33:9 And Esau saith, `I have abundance, my brother, let it be to thyself that which thou hast.'

GEN 33:10 And Jacob saith, `Nay, I pray thee, if, I pray thee, I have found grace in thine eyes, then thou hast received my present from my hand, because that I have seen thy face, as the seeing of the face of God, and thou art pleased with me;

GEN 33:11 receive, I pray thee, my blessing, which is brought to thee, because God hath favoured me, and because I have all `things';' and he presseth on him, and he receiveth,

GEN 33:12 and saith, `Let us journey and go on, and I go on before thee.'

GEN 33:13 And he saith unto him, `My lord knoweth that the children `are' tender, and the suckling flock and the herd `are' with me; when they have beaten them one day, then hath all the flock died.

GEN 33:14 Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant, and I -- I lead on gently, according to the foot of the work which `is' before me, and to the foot of the children, until that I come unto my lord, to Seir.'

GEN 33:15 And Esau saith, `Let me, I pray thee, place with thee some of the people who `are' with me;' and he said, `Why `is' this? I find grace in the eyes of my lord.'

GEN 33:16 And turn back on that day doth Esau on his way to Seir;

GEN 33:17 and Jacob hath journeyed to Succoth, and buildeth to himself a house, and for his cattle hath made booths, therefore hath he called the name of the place Succoth.

GEN 33:18 And Jacob cometh in to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which `is' in the land of Canaan, in his coming from Padan-Aram, and encampeth before the city,

GEN 33:19 and he buyeth the portion of the field where he hath stretched out his tent, from the hand of the sons of Hamor, father of Shechem, for a hundred kesitah;

GEN 33:20 and he setteth up there an altar, and proclaimeth at it God -- the God of Israel.
