Jacob's present to Esau. GENESIS,
13 * And he lodged there that same night; and took of tha which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother; 14 Two hundred she goats and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, 15 Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine and ten bulls, twenty she asses and ten foals. 16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove. 17 And he commanded the foremost, Saying, . When Esau m brother meeteth thee, and asket thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose are these before thee? 18 Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob's; it is a pres– ent Sent unto my lord Esau : and, behold, also he is behind us. 19 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. 20 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 face; peradventure he will accept of me. 21 So went the present over before him; and himself lodged that not in the company. And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok. 23 And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had. 24 " And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. 25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. 26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. 27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? ** he said, Jacob.
t be called no more Jacob, but Is
rael: for as a prince hast thout power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. 29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray, thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there. 30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved. 31 And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh. 32 Therefore the children of Is– rael 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.
CHAPTER XXXIII. 1 The kindness of Jacob and Esau at their meeting. 17 Jacob cometh to Succoth. 18. At Shalem he buyeth a field, and buildeth an altar called El-EloheIsrael. Ao Jacob lifted up his eyes; and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids. 2 And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost. And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother. 4 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they
wept. 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 thy Servant. 6 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves. 7 And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves. 8 And he said, What meanest thou by all this drove which I
met? And he said, These are to find ce in the sight of my lord. 9 And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast unto thyself. 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 wast pleased with me. 11 Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt fro With me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took it. 12 And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go before thee. 13 And he said unto him, My lord knoweth that the children are tender, and the flocks and herds with young are with me; and if Inen should overdrive them one day, all the flock will die. 14 Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant; and I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the children be able to endure, untill come unto my lord unto Seir. 15 And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee some of the folk that are with me. And he said, What needeth it? let me find grace in the sight of my lord. 16 So Esau returned that day on his way unto Seir. 17 And Jacob journeyed to SucCoth, and built him a house, and Inade booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth. 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. 19. And he bought a parcel 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. 20 And he erected there an altar, and called it El-Elohe-Israel.
CHAPTER XXXIV. 1 Dinah is ravished by Shechem. 4 He *weth to marry her, 13 . The sons of Jacob offer the condition of circumcision to the Shechemites. 20 Hamor and Shechem persuade them to accept it. 25 The sons of Jacob upon that advantage *lay them, 27 and spoil their city. 80 Jacob reproveth Simeon and Levi.
ANP Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. 2 And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her. 3 And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel. 4.And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife. 5 And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were come. And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with him. 7 And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it : and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter; which took ought not to be done. 8 And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son Shechem longeth for your daugh§: I pray you give her him to Wite.
9 And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto us, and take our daughters unto
yOu. 10 And ye shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you; dwell and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therein. 11 And Shechem said unto her father and unto her brethren, Let me find grace in your eyes, and yo ye shall say unto me I will Ve. 12 Ask me never so much dowry and gift, and I will give according as ye shall say unto me: but give me the damsel to wife. 13 And the sons of Jacob anSwered Shechem and Hamor his father, deceitfully, and, said, because he had defiled Dinah their Sister: 14 And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give Our sister to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach
that every male of you be circumCised : 16 Then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your to: to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people. 17 Put if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised; then will we take our daughter, and , we will be gone. 18 And their words pleased Hamor and Shechem Hamor's son. 19 And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob's daughter: and he was more honourable than all the house of his father. 20 " And Harmor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of their city, and communed with the men of their city, saying, 21 These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the land, and trade therein; for the land, behold. it is large enough for them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters. 22 Only herein will the men conSent unto us for to dwell with us, to be one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are circumcised. 23 Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of theirs be ours? only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with us. 24 And unto Hamor and unto Shechem his Son hearkened all that went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his city. 25 " And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah’s brethren, took each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males. 26 And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the Sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went out. 27 The sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and spoiled the city, because they had defiled their sister. 28 They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, and that which was in the city, and that which was in the field, 29 And all thog wealth, and all
are slain. their little ones, and their wives took they captive, and spoiled
even all that was in the house. 30 And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house. 31 And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with a harlot?

The sons % Jacob. 27 Jacob cometh to Isaac at Tebron. 28 The age, death, and burial of Isaac. ND God said unto Jacob, Arise go up to Beth-el, and dweii there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother. 2 Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments: 3.And let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went. 4 And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and, all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jācob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem. 5 And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons Of Jacob. 6 * So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Beth-el, he and all the people that were with him. 7 And he built there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el; because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother. 8 But Deborah Rebekah’s nurse died, and she was buried beneath Beth-el under an oak: and the Rachel's death. “ one of it was called Allon-bach
uth. 9 * And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padan-aram, and blessed him. 10 And God said unto him, § name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name; and he ed his name Israel. 11 And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply: a nation and a com— pany of nations shall be of thee, i. kings shall come out of thy Olns: 12 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land. 13 And God went up from him # the place where he talked with
In. 14 And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon. 15 And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with Beth-el. 16 ‘' And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath; and Rai. travailed, and she had hard
ur. 17 And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also. 18 And it came to pass, as her soul was in , departing, (for she died,) that she called his name Ben-oni: but his father called him Benjamin. 19 And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Peth-lehem. 20 And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day. 21 * And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar
22 And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:
