Genesis 32 ©
Jacob's vision at Mahanaim. His message to Esau. He is afraid of Esau's coming, and prayeth for deliverance. He sendeth a present to Esau; wrestleth with an angel at Peniel, and is called Israel. He halteth.
And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the other company which is left shall escape.
3I am not lworthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the mtruth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for nwith my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.
Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams,
Thirty *milch camels with their colts, forty *kine, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals.
And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose are these before thee?
Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob's; it is a present sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.
And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find him.
And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward I will see his face; *peradventure he will accept 5of me.
So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night in the company.
And he took them, and 6sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had.
And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in the sinew that shrank.
