Genesis 32

NRS 1 Jacob went on his way and the angels of God met him; CEB 1 Jacob went on his way, and God's messengers approached him. NRS 2 and when Jacob saw them he said, "This is God's camp!" So he called that place Mahanaim. CEB 2 When Jacob saw them, he said, "This is God's camp," and he named that sacred place Mahanaim. NRS 3 Jacob sent messengers before him to his brother Esau in the land of Seir, the country of Edom, CEB 3 Jacob sent messengers ahead of him to his brother Esau, toward the land of Seir, the open country of Edom. NRS 4 instructing them, "Thus you shall say to my lord Esau: Thus says your servant Jacob, "I have lived with Laban as an alien, and stayed until now; CEB 4 He gave them these orders: "Say this to my master Esau. This is the message of your servant Jacob: ‘I've lived as an immigrant with Laban, where I've stayed till now. NRS 5 and I have oxen, donkeys, flocks, male and female slaves; and I have sent to tell my lord, in order that I may find favor in your sight.' " CEB 5 I own cattle, donkeys, flocks, men servants, and women servants. I'm sending this message to my master now to ask that he be kind.'" NRS 6 The messengers returned to Jacob, saying, "We came to your brother Esau, and he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him." CEB 6 The messengers returned to Jacob and said, "We went out to your brother Esau, and he's coming to meet you with four hundred men." NRS 7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed; and he divided the people that were with him, and the flocks and herds and camels, into two companies, CEB 7 Jacob was terrified and felt trapped, so he divided the people with him, and the flocks, cattle, and camels, into two camps. NRS 8 thinking, "If Esau comes to the one company and destroys it, then the company that is left will escape." CEB 8 He thought, If Esau meets the first camp and attacks it, at least one camp will be left to escape. NRS 9 And 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 kindred, and I will do you good,' CEB 9 Jacob said, "LORD, God of my father Abraham, God of my father Isaac, who said to me, ‘Go back to your country and your relatives, and I'll make sure things go well for you,' NRS 10 I am not worthy of the least of all the steadfast love and all the faithfulness that you have shown to your servant, for with only my staff I crossed this Jordan; and now I have become two companies. CEB 10 I don't deserve how loyal and truthful you've been to your servant. I went away across the Jordan with just my staff, but now I've become two camps. NRS 11 Deliver me, please, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau, for I am afraid of him; he may come and kill us all, the mothers with the children. CEB 11 Save me from my brother Esau! I'm afraid he will come and kill me, the mothers, and their children. NRS 12 Yet you have said, "I will surely do you good, and make your offspring as the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted because of their number.' " CEB 12 You were the one who told me, ‘I will make sure things go well for you, and I will make your descendants like the sand of the sea, so many you won't be able to count them.'" NRS 13 So he spent that night there, and from what he had with him he took a present for his brother Esau, CEB 13 Jacob spent that night there. From what he had acquired, he set aside a gift for his brother Esau: NRS 14 two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, CEB 14 two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, NRS 15 thirty milch camels and their colts, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys. CEB 15 thirty nursing camels with their young, forty cows and ten bulls, and twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys. NRS 16 These he delivered into the hand of his servants, every drove by itself, and said to his servants, "Pass on ahead of me, and put a space between drove and drove." CEB 16 He separated these herds and gave them to his servants. He said to them, "Go ahead of me and put some distance between each of the herds." NRS 17 He instructed the foremost, "When Esau my brother meets you, and asks you, "To whom do you belong? Where are you going? And whose are these ahead of you?' CEB 17 He ordered the first group, "When my brother Esau meets you and asks you, ‘Who are you with? Where are you going? And whose herds are these in front of you?' NRS 18 then you shall say, "They belong to your servant Jacob; they are a present sent to my lord Esau; and moreover he is behind us.' " CEB 18 say, ‘They are your servant Jacob's, a gift sent to my master Esau. And Jacob is actually right behind us.'" NRS 19 He likewise instructed the second and the third and all who followed the droves, "You shall say the same thing to Esau when you meet him, CEB 19 He also ordered the second group, the third group, and everybody following the herds, "Say exactly the same thing to Esau when you find him. NRS 20 and you shall say, "Moreover your servant Jacob is behind us.' " For he thought, "I may appease him with the present that goes ahead of me, and afterwards I shall see his face; perhaps he will accept me." CEB 20 Say also, ‘Your servant Jacob is right behind us.'" Jacob thought, I may be able to pacify Esau with the gift I'm sending ahead. When I meet him, perhaps he will be kind to me. NRS 21 So the present passed on ahead of him; and he himself spent that night in the camp. CEB 21 So Jacob sent the gift ahead of him, but he spent that night in the camp. NRS 22 The same night he got up and took his two wives, his two maids, and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. CEB 22 Jacob got up during the night, took his two wives, his two women servants, and his eleven sons, and crossed the Jabbok River's shallow water. NRS 23 He took them and sent them across the stream, and likewise everything that he had. CEB 23 He took them and everything that belonged to him, and he helped them cross the river. NRS 24 Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. CEB 24 But Jacob stayed apart by himself, and a man wrestled with him until dawn broke. NRS 25 When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he struck him on the hip socket; and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. CEB 25 When the man saw that he couldn't defeat Jacob, he grabbed Jacob's thigh and tore a muscle in Jacob's thigh as he wrestled with him. NRS 26 Then he said, "Let me go, for the day is breaking." But Jacob said, "I will not let you go, unless you bless me." CEB 26 The man said, "Let me go because the dawn is breaking." But Jacob said, "I won't let you go until you bless me." NRS 27 So he said to him, "What is your name?" And he said, "Jacob." CEB 27 He said to Jacob, "What's your name?" and he said, "Jacob." NRS 28 Then the man said, "You shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with humans, and have prevailed." CEB 28 Then he said, "Your name won't be Jacob any longer, but Israel, because you struggled with God and with men and won." NRS 29 Then Jacob asked him, "Please tell me your name." But he said, "Why is it that you ask my name?" And there he blessed him. CEB 29 Jacob also asked and said, "Tell me your name." But he said, "Why do you ask for my name?" and he blessed Jacob there. NRS 30 So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, "For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life is preserved." CEB 30 Jacob named the place Peniel,"because I've seen God face-to-face, and my life has been saved." NRS 31 The sun rose upon him as he passed Penuel, limping because of his hip. CEB 31 The sun rose as Jacob passed Penuel, limping because of his thigh. NRS 32 Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the thigh muscle that is on the hip socket, because he struck Jacob on the hip socket at the thigh muscle. CEB 32 Therefore, Israelites don't eat the tendon attached to the thigh muscle to this day, because he grabbed Jacob's thigh muscle at the tendon.
