    1 And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.ASV — Genesis 32:1

    2 And Jacob said when he saw them, This is God`s host: and he called the name of that place Mahanaim.ASV — Genesis 32:2

    3 And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the land of Seir, the field of Edom.ASV — Genesis 32:3

    4 And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye say unto my lord Esau: Thus saith thy servant Jacob, I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed until now:ASV — Genesis 32:4

    5 and I have oxen, and asses, [and] flocks, and men-servants, and maid-servants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find favor in thy sight.ASV — Genesis 32:5

    6 And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy brother Esau, and moreover he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with him.ASV — Genesis 32:6

    7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and was distressed: and he divided the people that were with him, and the flocks, and the herds, and the camels, into two companies;ASV — Genesis 32:7

    9 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, O Jehovah, who saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will do thee good:ASV — Genesis 32:9

    10 I am not worthy of the least of all the lovingkindnesses, 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 companies.ASV — Genesis 32:10

    11 Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he come and smite me, the mother with the children.ASV — Genesis 32:11

    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.ASV — Genesis 32:12

    13 And he lodged there that night, and took of that which he had with him a present for Esau his brother:ASV — Genesis 32:13

    14 two hundred she-goats and twenty he-goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams,ASV — Genesis 32:14

    15 thirty milch camels and their colts, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty she-asses and ten foals.ASV — Genesis 32:15

    16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by itself, and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove.ASV — Genesis 32:16

    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?ASV — Genesis 32:17

    18 then thou shalt say [They are] thy servant Jacob`s; it is a present sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, he also is behind us.ASV — Genesis 32:18

    19 And he commanded also the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find him;ASV — Genesis 32:19

    20 and ye shall say, 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 me.ASV — Genesis 32:20

    21 So the present passed over before him: and he himself lodged that night in the company.ASV — Genesis 32:21

    22 And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two handmaids, and his eleven children, and passed over the ford of the Jabbok.ASV — Genesis 32:22

    23 And he took them, and sent them over the stream, and sent over that which he had.ASV — Genesis 32:23

    24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.ASV — Genesis 32:24

    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 strained, as he wrestled with him.ASV — Genesis 32:25

    26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.ASV — Genesis 32:26

    27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.ASV — Genesis 32:27

    28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for thou hast striven with God and with men, and hast prevailed.ASV — Genesis 32:28

    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.ASV — Genesis 32:29

    30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for, [said he], I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.ASV — Genesis 32:30

    32 Therefore the children of Israel eat not the sinew of the hip which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob`s thigh in the sinew of the hip.ASV — Genesis 32:32
