Genesis Chapter 32
And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.
32:2 And when Jacob saw them, he said, This is God's host: and he called
the name of that place Mahanaim.
32:3 And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the
land of Seir, the country of Edom.
32:4 And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye speak unto my lord
Esau; Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with Laban, and
stayed there until now:
32:5 And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and
womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in
32:6 And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy
brother Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with
32:7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the
people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels,
into two bands;
32:8 And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the
other company which is left shall escape.
32:9 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father
Isaac, the LORD which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to
thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee:
32:10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the
truth, which thou hast showed unto thy servant; for with my staff I
passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.
32:11 Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the
hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the
mother with the children.
32:12 And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as
the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.
32:13 And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came
to his hand a present for Esau his brother;
32:14 Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and
32:15 Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls,
twenty she asses, and ten foals.
32:16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove
by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put
a space betwixt drove and drove.
32:17 And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother
meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest
thou? and whose are these before thee?
32:18 Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob's; it is a present
sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.
32:19 And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that
followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau,
when ye find him.
32:20 And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us. For
he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and
afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.
32:21 So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night
in the company.
32:22 And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two
womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok.
32:23 And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that
32:24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until
the breaking of the day.
32:25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the
hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint,
as he wrestled with him.
32:26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will
not let thee go, except thou bless me.
32:27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
32:28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel:
for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast
32:29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And
he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he
blessed him there.
32:30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God
face to face, and my life is preserved.
32:31 And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted
upon his thigh.
32:32 Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which
shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he
touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in the sinew that shrank.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
