Genesis 32

1
Jacob went on his way and the angels of God met him;
2
and when Jacob saw them he said, "This is God's army!" So he called the name of that place Mahana'im.
3
And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother in the land of Se'ir, the country of Edom,
4
instructing them, "Thus you shall say to my lord Esau: Thus says your servant Jacob, 'I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed until now;
5
and I have oxen, asses, flocks, menservants, and maidservants; and I have sent to tell my lord, in order that I may find favor in your sight.'"
6
And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, "We came to your brother Esau, and he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men with him."
7
Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed; and he divided the people that were with him, and the flocks and herds and camels, into two companies,
8
thinking, "If Esau comes to the one company and destroys it, then the company which is left will escape."
9
And Jacob said, "O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, O LORD who didst say to me, 'Return to your country and to your kindred, and I will do you good,'
10
I am not worthy of the least of all the steadfast love and all the faithfulness which thou hast shown to thy servant, for with only my staff I crossed this Jordan; and now I have become two companies.
11
Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau, for I fear him, lest he come and slay us all, the mothers with the children.
12
But thou didst say, 'I will do you good, and make your descendants as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.'"
13
So he lodged there that night, and took from what he had with him a present for his brother Esau,
14
two hundred she-goats and twenty he-goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams,
15
thirty milch camels and their colts, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty she-asses and ten he-asses.
16
These he delivered into the hand of his servants, every drove by itself, and said to his servants, "Pass on before me, and put a space between drove and drove."
17
He instructed the foremost, "When Esau my brother meets you, and asks you, 'To whom do you belong? Where are you going? And whose are these before you?'
18
then you shall say, 'They belong to your servant Jacob; they are a present sent to my lord Esau; and moreover he is behind us.'"
19
He likewise instructed the second and the third and all who followed the droves, "You shall say the same thing to Esau when you meet him,
20
and you shall say, 'Moreover your servant Jacob is behind us.'" For he thought, "I may appease him with the present that goes before me, and afterwards I shall see his face; perhaps he will accept me."
21
So the present passed on before him; and he himself lodged that night in the camp.
22
The same night he arose and took his two wives, his two maids, and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok.
23
He took them and sent them across the stream, and likewise everything that he had.
24
And Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day.
25
When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and Jacob's thigh was put out of joint as he wrestled with him.
26
Then he said, "Let me go, for the day is breaking." But Jacob said, "I will not let you go, unless you bless me."
27
And he said to him, "What is your name?" And he said, "Jacob."
28
Then he said, "Your name shall no more be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed."
29
Then Jacob asked him, "Tell me, I pray, your name." But he said, "Why is it that you ask my name?" And there he blessed him.
30
So Jacob called the name of the place Peni'el, saying, "For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life is preserved."
31
The sun rose upon him as he passed Penu'el, limping because of his thigh.
32
Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the sinew of the hip which is upon the hollow of the thigh, because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh on the sinew of the hip.


Genesis 33

1
And Jacob lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, Esau was coming, and four hundred men with him. So he divided the children among Leah and Rachel and the two maids.
2
And he put the maids with their children in front, then Leah with her children, and Rachel and Joseph last of all.
3
He himself went on before them, bowing himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.
4
But Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck and kissed him, and they wept.
5
And when Esau raised his eyes and saw the women and children, he said, "Who are these with you?" Jacob said, "The children whom God has graciously given your servant."
6
Then the maids drew near, they and their children, and bowed down;
7
Leah likewise and her children drew near and bowed down; and last Joseph and Rachel drew near, and they bowed down.
8
Esau said, "What do you mean by all this company which I met?" Jacob answered, "To find favor in the sight of my lord."
9
But Esau said, "I have enough, my brother; keep what you have for yourself."
10
Jacob said, "No, I pray you, if I have found favor in your sight, then accept my present from my hand; for truly to see your face is like seeing the face of God, with such favor have you received me.
11
Accept, I pray you, my gift that is brought to you, because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough." Thus he urged him, and he took it.
12
Then Esau said, "Let us journey on our way, and I will go before you."
13
But Jacob said to him, "My lord knows that the children are frail, and that the flocks and herds giving suck are a care to me; and if they are overdriven for one day, all the flocks will die.
14
Let my lord pass on before his servant, and I will lead on slowly, according to the pace of the cattle which are before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my lord in Se'ir."
15
So Esau said, "Let me leave with you some of the men who are with me." But he said, "What need is there? Let me find favor in the sight of my lord."
16
So Esau returned that day on his way to Se'ir.
17
But Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built himself a house, and made booths for his cattle; therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.
18
And Jacob came safely to the city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, on his way from Paddan-aram; and he camped before the city.
19
And from the sons of Hamor, Shechem's father, he bought for a hundred pieces of money the piece of land on which he had pitched his tent.
20
There he erected an altar and called it El-El'ohe-Israel.


Genesis 34

1
Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land;
2
and when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, the prince of the land, saw her, he seized her and lay with her and humbled her.
3
And his soul was drawn to Dinah the daughter of Jacob; he loved the maiden and spoke tenderly to her.
4
So Shechem spoke to his father Hamor, saying, "Get me this maiden for my wife."
5
Now Jacob heard that he had defiled his daughter Dinah; but his sons were with his cattle in the field, so Jacob held his peace until they came.
6
And Hamor the father of Shechem went out to Jacob to speak with him.
7
The sons of Jacob came in from the field when they heard of it; and the men were indignant and very angry, because he had wrought folly in Israel by lying with Jacob's daughter, for such a thing ought not to be done.
8
But Hamor spoke with them, saying, "The soul of my son Shechem longs for your daughter; I pray you, give her to him in marriage.
9
Make marriages with us; give your daughters to us, and take our daughters for yourselves.
10
You shall dwell with us; and the land shall be open to you; dwell and trade in it, and get property in it."
11
Shechem also said to her father and to her brothers, "Let me find favor in your eyes, and whatever you say to me I will give.
12
Ask of me ever so much as marriage present and gift, and I will give according as you say to me; only give me the maiden to be my wife."
13
The sons of Jacob answered Shechem and his father Hamor deceitfully, because he had defiled their sister Dinah.
14
They said to them, "We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one who is uncircumcised, for that would be a disgrace to us.
15
Only on this condition will we consent to you: that you will become as we are and every male of you be circumcised.
16
Then we will give our daughters to you, and we will take your daughters to ourselves, and we will dwell with you and become one people.
17
But if you will not listen to us and be circumcised, then we will take our daughter, and we will be gone."
18
Their words pleased Hamor and Hamor's son Shechem.
19
And the young man did not delay to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob's daughter. Now he was the most honored of all his family.
20
So Hamor and his son Shechem came to the gate of their city and spoke to the men of their city, saying,
21
"These men are friendly with us; let them dwell in the land and trade in it, for behold, the land is large enough for them; let us take their daughters in marriage, and let us give them our daughters.
22
Only on this condition will the men agree to dwell with us, to become one people: that every male among us be circumcised as they are circumcised.
23
Will not their cattle, their property and all their beasts be ours? Only let us agree with them, and they will dwell with us."
24
And all who went out of the gate of his city hearkened to Hamor and his son Shechem; and every male was circumcised, all who went out of the gate of his city.
25
On the third day, when they were sore, two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, took their swords and came upon the city unawares, and killed all the males.
26
They slew Hamor and his son Shechem with the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went away.
27
And the sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and plundered the city, because their sister had been defiled;
28
they took their flocks and their herds, their asses, and whatever was in the city and in the field;
29
all their wealth, all their little ones and their wives, all that was in the houses, they captured and made their prey.
30
Then Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, "You have brought trouble on me by making me odious to the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites and the Per'izzites; my numbers are few, and if they gather themselves against me and attack me, I shall be destroyed, both I and my household."
31
But they said, "Should he treat our sister as a harlot?"


Genesis 35

1
God said to Jacob, "Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there; and make there an altar to the God who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau."
2
So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Put away the foreign gods that are among you, and purify yourselves, and change your garments;
3
then let us arise and go up to Bethel, that I may make there an altar to the God who answered me in the day of my distress and has been with me wherever I have gone."
4
So they gave to Jacob all the foreign gods that they had, and the rings that were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was near Shechem.
5
And as they journeyed, a terror from God fell upon the cities that were round about them, so that they did not pursue the sons of Jacob.
6
And Jacob came to Luz (that is, Bethel), which is in the land of Canaan, he and all the people who were with him,
7
and there he built an altar, and called the place El-bethel, because there God had revealed himself to him when he fled from his brother.
8
And Deb'orah, Rebekah's nurse, died, and she was buried under an oak below Bethel; so the name of it was called Al'lon-bacuth.
9
God appeared to Jacob again, when he came from Paddan-aram, and blessed him.
10
And God said to him, "Your name is Jacob; no longer shall your name be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name." So his name was called Israel.
11
And God said to him, "I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall come from you, and kings shall spring from you.
12
The land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac I will give to you, and I will give the land to your descendants after you."
13
Then God went up from him in the place where he had spoken with him.
14
And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he had spoken with him, a pillar of stone; and he poured out a drink offering on it, and poured oil on it.
15
So Jacob called the name of the place where God had spoken with him, Bethel.
16
Then they journeyed from Bethel; and when they were still some distance from Ephrath, Rachel travailed, and she had hard labor.
17
And when she was in her hard labor, the midwife said to her, "Fear not; for now you will have another son."
18
And as her soul was departing (for she died), she called his name Ben-o'ni; but his father called his name Benjamin.
19
So Rachel died, and she was buried on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem),
20
and Jacob set up a pillar upon her grave; it is the pillar of Rachel's tomb, which is there to this day.
21
Israel journeyed on, and pitched his tent beyond the tower of Eder.
22
While Israel dwelt in that land Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine; and Israel heard of it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve.
23
The sons of Leah: Reuben (Jacob's first-born), Simeon, Levi, Judah, Is'sachar, and Zeb'ulun.
24
The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.
25
The sons of Bilhah, Rachel's maid: Dan and Naph'tali.
26
The sons of Zilpah, Leah's maid: Gad and Asher. These were the sons of Jacob who were born to him in Paddan-aram.
27
And Jacob came to his father Isaac at Mamre, or Kir'iath-ar'ba (that is, Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had sojourned.
28
Now the days of Isaac were a hundred and eighty years.
29
And Isaac breathed his last; and he died and was gathered to his people, old and full of days; and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
