Then the concubines came up with their children and bowed down;
then Leah and her children came, and last of all Joseph and Rachel came and bowed down.
Esau asked, "What about that other group I met? What did that mean?" Jacob answered, "It was to gain your favor."
But Esau said, "I have enough, my brother; keep what you have."
Jacob said, "No, please, if I have gained your favor, accept my gift. To see your face is for me like seeing the face of God, now that you have been so friendly to me.
Please accept this gift which I have brought for you; God has been kind to me and given me everything I need." Jacob kept on urging him until he accepted.
Esau said, "Let's get ready and leave. I will go ahead of you."
Jacob answered, "You know that the children are weak, and I must think of the sheep and livestock with their young. If they are driven hard for even one day, the whole herd will die.
Please go on ahead of me, and I will follow slowly, going as fast as I can with the livestock and the children until I catch up with you in Edom."
Esau said, "Then let me leave some of my men with you." But Jacob answered, "There is no need for that for I only want to gain your favor."
So that day Esau started on his way back to Edom.
