The kindness of Jacob and Esau at their meeting.
Genesis 33:1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children to Leah, and to Rachel, and to the two handmaids. Genesis 33:2 And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost. Genesis 33:3 And he passed on before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, till he came near to his brother. Genesis 33:4 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept. Genesis 33:5 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 to thy servant. Genesis 33:6 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves. Genesis 33:7 And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves; and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves. Genesis 33:8 And he said, What [meanest] thou by all this drove which I met? And he said, [these are] to find grace in the sight of my lord. Genesis 33:9 And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep what thou hast to thyself. Genesis 33:10 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 hast been pleased with me. Genesis 33:11 Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough: and he urged him, and he took [it]. Genesis 33:12 And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go before thee. Genesis 33:13 And he said to him, My lord knoweth that the children [are] tender, and the flocks and herds with young [are] with me, and if men should over-drive them one day, all the flock will die. Genesis 33:14 Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant: and I will lead on slowly, according as the cattle that go before me, and the children are able to endure; until I come to my lord to Seir. Genesis 33:15 And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee [some] of the people that [are] with me: And he said, What needeth it? Let me find grace in the sight of my lord.
Genesis 33:16 So Esau returned that day on his way to Seir.
Jacob cometh to Succoth.
Genesis 33:17 And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him a house, and made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.
At Shalem he buyeth a field, and buildeth an altar called El-elohe-Israel.
Genesis 33:18 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. Genesis 33:19 And he bought a part 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. Genesis 33:20 And he erected there an altar, and called it El-elohe-Israel.
