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