View In My Bible
10 Jacob said, "No, please, if now I have found favor in your sight, then take my present from my hand, afor I see your face as one sees the face of God, and you have received me favorably. 11 "Please take my b1gift which has been brought to you, 2because God has dealt graciously with me and because I have cplenty." Thus he urged him and he took it. 12 Then dEsau said, "Let us take our journey and go, and I will go before you." 13 But he said to him, "My lord knows that the children are frail and that the flocks and herds which are nursing are ea care to me. And if they are driven hard one day, all the flocks will die. 14 "Please let my lord pass on before his servant, and I will proceed at my leisure, according to the pace of the cattle that are before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my lord at 3Seir." 15 Esau said, "Please let me leave with you some of the people who are with me." But he said, "fWhat need is there? 4Let me find favor in the sight of my lord." 16 So Esau returned that day on his way to Seir. 17 Jacob journeyed to g5Succoth, and built for himself a house and made booths for his livestock; therefore the place is named Succoth.
