Esav said, "Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go before you."
Ya`akov said to him, "My lord knows that the children are tender, and that the flocks and herds with me have their young, and if they overdrive them one day, all the flocks will die.
Please let my lord pass over before his servant: and I will lead on gently, 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 to Se`ir."
Esav said, "Let me now leave with you some of the folk who are with me." He said, "Why? Let me find favor in the sight of my lord."
So Esav returned that day on his way to Se`ir.
Ya`akov journeyed to Sukkot, built himself a house, and made shelters for his cattle. Therefore the name of the place is called Sukkot.
Ya`akov came in shalom to the city of Shekhem, which is in the land of Kana`an, when he came from Paddan-Aram; and encamped before the city.
He bought the parcel of ground, where he had spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shekhem's father, for one hundred pieces of money.
He erected an altar there, and called it El-Elohe-Yisra'el.
