Genesis 33

NRS 1 Now Jacob looked up and saw Esau coming, and four hundred men with him. So he divided the children among Leah and Rachel and the two maids. CEB 1 Jacob looked up and saw Esau approaching with four hundred men. Jacob divided the children among Leah, Rachel, and the two women servants. NRS 2 He put the maids with their children in front, then Leah with her children, and Rachel and Joseph last of all. CEB 2 He put the servants and their children first, Leah and her children after them, and Rachel and Joseph last. NRS 3 He himself went on ahead of them, bowing himself to the ground seven times, until he came near his brother. CEB 3 He himself went in front of them and bowed to the ground seven times as he was approaching his brother. NRS 4 But Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck and kissed him, and they wept. CEB 4 But Esau ran to meet him, threw his arms around his neck, kissed him, and they wept. NRS 5 When Esau looked up and saw the women and children, he said, "Who are these with you?" Jacob said, "The children whom God has graciously given your servant." CEB 5 Esau looked up and saw the women and children and said, "Who are these with you?" Jacob said, "The children that God generously gave your servant." NRS 6 Then the maids drew near, they and their children, and bowed down; CEB 6 The women servants and their children came forward and bowed down. NRS 7 Leah likewise and her children drew near and bowed down; and finally Joseph and Rachel drew near, and they bowed down. CEB 7 Then Leah and her servants also came forward and bowed, and afterward Joseph and Rachel came forward and bowed. NRS 8 Esau said, "What do you mean by all this company that I met?" Jacob answered, "To find favor with my lord." CEB 8 Esau said, "What's the meaning of this entire group of animals that I met?" Jacob said, "To ask for my master's kindness." NRS 9 But Esau said, "I have enough, my brother; keep what you have for yourself." CEB 9 Esau said, "I already have plenty, my brother. Keep what's yours." NRS 10 Jacob said, "No, please; if I find favor with you, then accept my present from my hand; for truly to see your face is like seeing the face of God—since you have received me with such favor. CEB 10 Jacob said, "No, please, do me the kindness of accepting my gift. Seeing your face is like seeing God's face, since you've accepted me so warmly. NRS 11 Please accept my gift that is brought to you, because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have everything I want." So he urged him, and he took it. CEB 11 Take this present that I've brought because God has been generous to me, and I have everything I need." So Jacob persuaded him, and he took it. NRS 12 Then Esau said, "Let us journey on our way, and I will go alongside you." CEB 12 Esau said, "Let's break camp and set out, and I'll go with you." NRS 13 But Jacob said to him, "My lord knows that the children are frail and that the flocks and herds, which are nursing, are a care to me; and if they are overdriven for one day, all the flocks will die. CEB 13 But Jacob said to him, "My master knows that the children aren't strong and that I am responsible for the nursing flocks and cattle. If I push them hard for even one day, all of the flocks will die. NRS 14 Let my lord pass on ahead of his servant, and I will lead on slowly, 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 in Seir." CEB 14 My master, go on ahead of your servant, but I've got to take it easy, going only as fast as the animals in front of me and the children are able to go, until I meet you in Seir." NRS 15 So Esau said, "Let me leave with you some of the people who are with me." But he said, "Why should my lord be so kind to me?" CEB 15 Esau said, "Let me leave some of my people with you." But Jacob said, "Why should you do this since my master has already been so kind to me?" NRS 16 So Esau returned that day on his way to Seir. CEB 16 That day Esau returned on the road to Seir, NRS 17 But Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built himself a house, and made booths for his cattle; therefore the place is called Succoth. CEB 17 but Jacob traveled to Succoth. He built a house for himself but made temporary shelters for his animals; therefore, he named the place Succoth. NRS 18 Jacob came safely to the city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, on his way from Paddan-aram; and he camped before the city. CEB 18 Jacob arrived safely at the city of Shechem in the land of Canaan on his trip from Paddan-aram, and he camped in front of the city. NRS 19 And from the sons of Hamor, Shechem's father, he bought for one hundred pieces of money the plot of land on which he had pitched his tent. CEB 19 He bought the section of the field where he pitched his tent from the sons of Hamor, Shechem's father, for one hundred qesitahs. NRS 20 There he erected an altar and called it El-Elohe-Israel. CEB 20 Then he set up an altar there and named it El Elohe Israel.
