Genesis 32:12  Genesis 33:1

12 But You have said, I will surely do you good and make your seed like the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.

13 And he spent that night there. Then from what he had with him he took a present for Esau his brother:

14 Two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams,

15 Thirty nursing camels and their young, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys.

16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by itself, and said to his servants, Cross over before me, and put a space between each drove.

17 And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meets you and asks you, saying, To whom do you belong? And where are you going? And whose animals are these before you?

18 Then you will say, Your servant Jacob’s; it is a present sent to my lord Esau; and now he also is behind us.

19 And he commanded also the second and the third, and all who followed the droves, saying, In this way you shall speak to Esau when you find him,

20 And you shall also say, Your servant Jacob is right behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goes before me, and afterward I will see his face; perhaps he will accept me.

21 So the present crossed over before him, and he himself spent that night in the camp.

22 And he rose up that night and took his two wives and his two female servants and his eleven children and crossed over the ford of the Jabbok.

23 And he took them and sent them over the stream and sent over what he had.

24 And Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until the break of dawn.

25 And when the man saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob’s hip was dislocated as he wrestled with Him.

26 And the man said, Let Me go, for the dawn 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 And He said, Your name will no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men and have prevailed.

29 And Jacob asked Him and said, Please tell me Your name. But He said, Why is it that you ask My name? And He blessed him there.

30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, for, he said, I have seen God face to face, and yet my life has been preserved.

31 And the sun rose upon him as he crossed over Penuel, and he limped because of his hip.

32 Therefore the children of Israel do not eat the thigh muscle, which is upon the socket of the hip, to this day, because He touched the socket of Jacob’s hip at the thigh muscle.


1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes and looked, and there was Esau coming, and four hundred men with him. So he divided the children among Leah and among Rachel and among the two female servants.
