Genesis 32:1-8

HNV 1 Ya`akov went on his way, and the angels of God met him. NIV 1 Jacob also went on his way, and the angels of God met him. HNV 2 When he saw them, Ya`akov said, "This is God's host." He called the name of that place Machanayim. NIV 2 When Jacob saw them, he said, “This is the camp of God!” So he named that place Mahanaim. HNV 3 Ya`akov sent messengers in front of him to Esav, his brother, to the land of Se`ir, the field of Edom. NIV 3 Jacob sent messengers ahead of him to his brother Esau in the land of Seir, the country of Edom. HNV 4 He commanded them, saying, "This is what you shall tell my lord, Esav: 'This is what your servant, Ya`akov, says. I have sojourned with Lavan, 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. HNV 5 I have oxen, donkeys, flocks, men-servants, and maid-servants. 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.’ ” HNV 6 The messengers returned to Ya`akov, saying, "We came to your brother Esav. Not only that, but he comes to meet you, and four hundred men 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.” HNV 7 Then Ya`akov was greatly afraid and was 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. HNV 8 and he said, "If Esav comes to the one company, and strikes 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.”
