Genesis 33 KJV

1 And 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.
3 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 grace in the sight of my lord.
