Genesis 32

NAS 1 Now as Jacob went on his way, the angels of God met him. NIV 1 Jacob also went on his way, and the angels of God met him. NAS 2 Jacob said when he saw them, "This is God's camp." So he named that place Mahanaim. NIV 2 When Jacob saw them, he said, “This is the camp of God!” So he named that place Mahanaim. NAS 3 Then Jacob sent messengers before him to his brother Esau in the land of Seir, the country of Edom. NIV 3 Jacob sent messengers ahead of him to his brother Esau in the land of Seir, the country of Edom. NAS 4 He also commanded them saying, "Thus you shall say to my lord Esau: 'Thus says your servant Jacob, "I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed until now; NIV 4 He instructed them: “This is what you are to say to my lord Esau: ‘Your servant Jacob says, I have been staying with Laban and have remained there till now. NAS 5 I have oxen and donkeys and flocks and male and female servants ; and I have sent to tell my lord , that I may find favor in your sight.""' NIV 5 I have cattle and donkeys, sheep and goats, male and female servants. Now I am sending this message to my lord, that I may find favor in your eyes.’ ” NAS 6 The messengers returned to Jacob, saying, "We came to your brother Esau, and furthermore he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him." NIV 6 When the messengers returned to Jacob, they said, “We went to your brother Esau, and now he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him.” NAS 7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed; and he divided the people who were with him, and the flocks and the herds and the camels, into two companies; NIV 7 In great fear and distress Jacob divided the people who were with him into two groups, and the flocks and herds and camels as well. NAS 8 for he said, "If Esau comes to the one company and attacks it, then the company which is left will escape." NIV 8 He thought, “If Esau comes and attacks one group, the group that is left may escape.” NAS 9 Jacob said, "O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, O LORD , who said to me, 'Return to your country and to your relatives, and I will prosper you,' NIV 9 Then Jacob prayed, “O God of my father Abraham, God of my father Isaac, LORD, you who said to me, ‘Go back to your country and your relatives, and I will make you prosper,’ NAS 10 I am unworthy of all the lovingkindness and of all the faithfulness which You have shown to Your servant; for with my staff only I crossed this Jordan, and now I have become two companies. NIV 10 I am unworthy of all the kindness and faithfulness you have shown your servant. I had only my staff when I crossed this Jordan, but now I have become two camps. NAS 11 "Deliver me, I pray, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau; for I fear him, that he will come and attack me and the mothers with the children. NIV 11 Save me, I pray, from the hand of my brother Esau, for I am afraid he will come and attack me, and also the mothers with their children. NAS 12 "For You said, 'I will surely prosper you and make your descendants as the sand of the sea, which is too great to be numbered.' " NIV 12 But you have said, ‘I will surely make you prosper and will make your descendants like the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted.’ ” NAS 13 So he spent the night there. Then he selected from what he had with him a present for his brother Esau: NIV 13 He spent the night there, and from what he had with him he selected a gift for his brother Esau: NAS 14 two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, NIV 14 two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, NAS 15 thirty milking camels and their colts, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys. NIV 15 thirty female camels with their young, forty cows and ten bulls, and twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys. NAS 16 He delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by itself, and said to his servants, "Pass on before me, and put a space between droves." NIV 16 He put them in the care of his servants, each herd by itself, and said to his servants, “Go ahead of me, and keep some space between the herds.” NAS 17 He commanded the one in front, saying, "When my brother Esau meets you and asks you, saying, 'To whom do you belong, and where are you going, and to whom do these animals in front of you belong?' NIV 17 He instructed the one in the lead: “When my brother Esau meets you and asks, ‘Who do you belong to, and where are you going, and who owns all these animals in front of you?’ NAS 18 then you shall say, 'These belong to your servant Jacob; it is a present sent to my lord Esau. And behold, he also is behind us.' " NIV 18 then you are to say, ‘They belong to your servant Jacob. They are a gift sent to my lord Esau, and he is coming behind us.’ ” NAS 19 Then he commanded also the second and the third, and all those who followed the droves, saying, "After this manner you shall speak to Esau when you find him; NIV 19 He also instructed the second, the third and all the others who followed the herds: “You are to say the same thing to Esau when you meet him. NAS 20 and you shall say, 'Behold, your servant Jacob also is behind us.' " For he said, "I will appease him with the present that goes before me. Then afterward I will see his face; perhaps he will accept me." NIV 20 And be sure to say, ‘Your servant Jacob is coming behind us.’ ” For he thought, “I will pacify him with these gifts I am sending on ahead; later, when I see him, perhaps he will receive me.” NAS 21 So the present passed on before him, while he himself spent that night in the camp. NIV 21 So Jacob’s gifts went on ahead of him, but he himself spent the night in the camp. NAS 22 Now he arose that same night and took his two wives and his two maids and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. NIV 22 That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two female servants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. NAS 23 He took them and sent them across the stream. And he sent across whatever he had. NIV 23 After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. NAS 24 Then Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. NIV 24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. NAS 25 When he saw that he had not prevailed against him, he touched the socket of his thigh; so the socket of Jacob's thigh was dislocated while he wrestled with him. NIV 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. NAS 26 Then he said, "Let me go, for the dawn is breaking." But he said, "I will not let you go unless you bless me." NIV 26 Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.” But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” NAS 27 So he said to him, "What is your name?" And he said, "Jacob." NIV 27 The man asked him, “What is your name?” “Jacob,” he answered. NAS 28 He said, "Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel; for you have striven with God and with men and have prevailed." NIV 28 Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.” NAS 29 Then Jacob asked him and said, "Please tell me your name." But he said, "Why is it that you ask my name?" And he blessed him there. NIV 29 Jacob said, “Please tell me your name.” But he replied, “Why do you ask my name?” Then he blessed him there. NAS 30 So Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, "I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been preserved." NIV 30 So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, “It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared.” NAS 31 Now the sun rose upon him just as he crossed over Penuel, and he was limping on his thigh. NIV 31 The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel, and he was limping because of his hip. NAS 32 Therefore , to this day the sons of Israel do not eat the sinew of the hip which is on the socket of the thigh, because he touched the socket of Jacob's thigh in the sinew of the hip. NIV 32 Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the tendon attached to the socket of the hip, because the socket of Jacob’s hip was touched near the tendon.
