Genesis 32

  1 H3290 And Jacob H1980 [H8804] went H1870 on his way H4397 , and the angels H430 of God H6293 [H8799] met him.
  2 H3290 And when Jacob H7200 [H8804] saw them H559 [H8799] , he said H430 , This is God's H4264 host H7121 [H8799] : and he called H8034 the name H4725 of that place H4266 Mahanaim.
  3 H3290 And Jacob H7971 [H8799] sent H4397 messengers H6440 before him H6215 to Esau H251 his brother H776 to the land H8165 of Seir H7704 , the country H123 of Edom.
  4 H6680 [H8762] And he commanded H559 [H8800] them, saying H559 [H8799] , Thus shall ye speak H113 to my lord H6215 Esau H5650 ; Thy servant H3290 Jacob H559 [H8804] saith H1481 [H8804] thus, I have sojourned H3837 with Laban H309 [H8799] , and stayed there till now:
  5 H7794 And I have oxen H2543 , and donkeys H6629 , flocks H5650 , and male H8198 and female servants H7971 [H8799] : and I have sent H5046 [H8687] to tell H113 my lord H4672 [H8800] , that I may find H2580 grace H5869 in thy sight.
  6 H4397 And the messengers H7725 [H8799] returned H3290 to Jacob H559 [H8800] , saying H935 [H8804] , We came H251 to thy brother H6215 Esau H1980 [H8802] , and also he is coming H7125 [H8800] to meet thee H3967 , and four hundred H376 men with him.
  7 H3290 Then Jacob H3966 was greatly H3372 [H8799] afraid H3334 [H8799] and distressed H2673 [H8799] : and he divided H5971 the people H6629 that were with him, and the flocks H1241 , and herds H1581 , and camels H8147 , into two H4264 bands;
  8 H559 [H8799] And said H6215 , If Esau H935 [H8799] shall come H259 to the one H4264 company H5221 [H8689] , and smite it H4264 , then the other company H7604 [H8737] which is left H6413 shall escape.
  9 H3290 And Jacob H559 [H8799] said H430 , O God H1 of my father H85 Abraham H430 , and God H1 of my father H3327 Isaac H3068 , the LORD H559 [H8802] who saidst H7725 [H8798] to me, Return H776 to thy country H4138 , and to thy kindred H3190 [H8686] , and I will deal well with thee:
  10 H6994 [H8804] I am not worthy of the least H2617 of all the mercies H571 , and of all the truth H6213 [H8804] , which thou hast shown H5650 to thy servant H4731 ; for with my staff H5674 [H8804] I passed over H3383 this Jordan H8147 ; and now I am become two H4264 bands.
  11 H5337 [H8685] Deliver me H3027 , I pray thee, from the hand H251 of my brother H3027 , from the hand H6215 of Esau H3373 : for I fear H935 [H8799] him, lest he will come H5221 [H8689] and smite me H517 , and the mother H5921 with H1121 the children.
  12 H559 [H8804] And thou saidst H3190 [H8687] , I will surely H3190 [H8686] do thee good H7760 [H8804] , and make H2233 thy seed H2344 as the sand H3220 of the sea H5608 [H8735] , which cannot be numbered H7230 for multitude.
  13 H3885 [H8799] And he lodged H3915 there that same night H3947 [H8799] ; and took H935 [H8802] of that which came H3027 to his hand H4503 a present H6215 for Esau H251 his brother;
  14 H3967 Two hundred H5795 female goats H6242 , and twenty H8495 male goats H3967 , two hundred H7353 ewes H6242 , and twenty H352 rams,
  15 H7970 Thirty H3243 [H8688] milk H1581 camels H1121 with their colts H705 , forty H6510 cows H6235 , and ten H6499 bulls H6242 , twenty H860 female donkeys H6235 , and ten H5895 foals.
  16 H5414 [H8799] And he delivered H3027 them into the hand H5650 of his servants H5739 , every drove H559 [H8799] by themselves; and said H5650 to his servants H5674 [H8798] , Pass over H6440 before me H7760 [H8799] , and put H7305 a space H996 between H5739 drove H996 and H5739 drove.
  17 H6680 [H8762] And he commanded H7223 the foremost H559 [H8800] , saying H6215 , When Esau H251 my brother H6298 [H8799] meeteth thee H7592 [H8804] , and asketh thee H559 [H8800] , saying H3212 [H8799] , Whose art thou? and where goest H6440 thou? and whose are these before thee?
  18 H559 [H8804] Then thou shalt say H5650 , They are thy servant H3290 Jacob's H4503 ; it is a present H7971 [H8803] sent H113 to my lord H6215 Esau H310 : and, behold, also he is behind us.
  19 H1571 And so H6680 [H8762] he commanded H8145 the second H7992 , and the third H1980 H310 [H8802] , and all that followed H5739 the droves H559 [H8800] , saying H1697 , In this manner H1696 [H8762] shall ye speak H6215 to Esau H4672 [H8800] , when ye find him.
  20 H559 [H8804] And say ye H1571 moreover H5650 , Behold, thy servant H3290 Jacob H310 is behind us H559 [H8804] . For he said H3722 [H8762] , I will appease H6440 him H4503 with the present H1980 [H8802] that goeth H6440 before me H310 , and afterward H7200 [H8799] I will see H6440 his face H5375 [H8799] ; perhaps he will accept H6440 of me.
  21 H4503 So the present H5674 [H8799] went over H6440 before him H3885 [H8804] : and he himself lodged H3915 that night H4264 in the company.
  22 H6965 [H8799] And he arose H3915 that night H3947 [H8799] , and took H8147 his two H802 wives H8147 , and his two H8198 female servants H6240 H259 , and his eleven H3206 sons H5674 [H8799] , and passed over H4569 the ford H2999 Jabbok.
  23 H3947 [H8799] And he took them H5674 [H8686] , and sent them over H5158 the brook H5674 [H8686] , and sent over that which he had.
  24 H3290 And Jacob H3498 [H8735] was left H79 [H8735] alone; and there wrestled H376 a man H5927 [H8800] with him until the breaking H7837 of the day.
  25 H7200 [H8799] And when he saw H3201 [H8804] that he prevailed H5060 [H8799] not against him, he touched H3409 the hollow of his thigh H3709 ; and the hollow H3290 of Jacob's H3409 thigh H3363 [H8799] was out of joint H79 [H8736] , as he wrestled with him.
  26 H559 [H8799] And he said H7971 [H8761] , Let me go H7837 , for the day H5927 [H8804] breaketh H559 [H8799] . And he said H7971 [H8762] , I will not let thee go H518 , except H1288 [H8765] thou bless me.
  27 H559 [H8799] And he said H8034 to him, What is thy name H559 [H8799] ? And he said H3290 , Jacob.
  28 H559 [H8799] And he said H8034 , Thy name H559 [H8735] shall be called H3290 no more Jacob H3478 , but Israel H8280 [H8804] : for as a prince hast thou power H430 with God H582 and with men H3201 [H8799] , and hast prevailed.
  29 H3290 And Jacob H7592 [H8799] asked H559 [H8799] him, and said H5046 [H8685] , Tell H8034 me, I pray thee, thy name H559 [H8799] . And he said H2088 , why is it H7592 [H8799] that thou dost ask H8034 after my name H1288 [H8762] ? And he blessed him there.
  30 H3290 And Jacob H7121 [H8799] called H8034 the name H4725 of the place H6439 Peniel H7200 [H8804] : for I have seen H430 God H6440 face H6440 to face H5315 , and my life H5337 [H8735] is preserved.
  31 H5674 [H8804] And as he passed over H6439 Penuel H8121 the sun H2224 [H8799] rose H6760 [H8802] upon him, and he limped H3409 upon his thigh.
  32 H1121 Therefore the children H3478 of Israel H398 [H8799] eat H1517 not of the sinew H5384 which shrank H3709 , which is upon the hollow H3409 of the thigh H3117 , to this day H5060 [H8804] : because he touched H3709 the hollow H3290 of Jacob's H3409 thigh H1517 in the sinew H5384 that shrank.
