Genesis 33 (WEBP)

[1] Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau was coming, and with him four hundred men. He divided the children between Leah, Rachel, and the two servants.
[2] He put the servants and their children in front, Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph at the rear.
[3] He himself passed over in front of them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.
[4] Esau ran to meet him, embraced him, fell on his neck, kissed him, and they wept.
[5] He lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, “Who are these with you?” He said, “The children whom God has graciously given your servant.”
[6] Then the servants came near with their children, and they bowed themselves.
[7] Leah also and her children came near, and bowed themselves. After them, Joseph came near with Rachel, and they bowed themselves.
[8] Esau said, “What do you mean by all this company which I met?” Jacob said, “To find favor in the sight of my lord.”
[9] Esau said, “I have enough, my brother; let that which you have be yours.”
[10] Jacob said, “Please, no, if I have now found favor in your sight, then receive my present at my hand, because I have seen your face, as one sees the face of God, and you were pleased with me.
[11] Please take the gift that I brought to you, because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough.” He urged him, and he took it.
[12] Esau said, “Let’s take our journey, and let’s go, and I will go before you.”
[13] Jacob said to him, “My lord knows that the children are tender, and that the flocks and herds with me have their young, and if they overdrive them one day, all the flocks will die.
[14] Please let my lord pass over before his servant, and I will lead on gently, according to the pace of the livestock that are before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my lord to Seir.”
[15] Esau said, “Let me now leave with you some of the people who are with me.” He said, “Why? Let me find favor in the sight of my lord.”
[16] So Esau returned that day on his way to Seir.
[17] Jacob traveled to Succoth, built himself a house, and made shelters for his livestock. Therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.°
[18] Jacob came in peace to the city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, when he came from Paddan Aram; and encamped before the city.
[19] He bought the parcel of ground where he had spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem’s father, for one hundred pieces of money.
[20] He erected an altar there, and called it El Elohe Israel.°

Genesis 33:17 succoth means shelters or booths.
Genesis 33:20 El Elohe Israel means “God, the God of Israel” or “The God of Israel is mighty”.

Genesis 33 (KJVS)

[1] And Jacob H3290 lifted up H5375 (8799) his eyes H5869, and looked H7200 (8799), and, behold, Esau H6215 came H935 (8802), and with him four H702 hundred H3967 men H376. And he divided H2673 (8799) the children H3206 unto Leah H3812, and unto Rachel H7354, and unto the two H8147 handmaids H8198.
[2] And he put H7760 (8799) the handmaids H8198 and their children H3206 foremost H7223, and Leah H3812 and her children H3206 after H314, and Rachel H7354 and Joseph H3130 hindermost H314.
[3] And he passed over H5674 (8804) before them H6440, and bowed himself H7812 (8691) to the ground H776 seven H7651 times H6471, until he came near H5066 (8800) to his brother H251.
[4] And Esau H6215 ran H7323 (8799) to meet him H7125 (8800), and embraced H2263 (8762) him, and fell H5307 (8799) on his neck H6677, and kissed him H5401 (8799): and they wept H1058 (8799).
[5] And he lifted up H5375 (8799) his eyes H5869, and saw H7200 (8799) the women H802 and the children H3206; and said H559 (8799), Who [are] those H428 with thee? And he said H559 (8799), The children H3206 which God H430 hath graciously given H2603 (8804) thy servant H5650.
[6] Then the handmaidens H8198 came near H5066 (8799), they and their children H3206, and they bowed themselves H7812 (8691).
[7] And Leah H3812 also with her children H3206 came near H5066 (8799), and bowed themselves H7812 (8691): and after H310 came H5066 Joseph H3130 near H5066 (8738) and Rachel H7354, and they bowed H7812 (8691) themselves.
[8] And he said H559 (8799), What [meanest] thou by all this drove H4264 which I met H6298 (8804)? And he said H559 (8799), [These are] to find H4672 (8800) grace H2580 in the sight H5869 of my lord H113.
[9] And Esau H6215 said H559 (8799), I have H3426 enough H7227, my brother H251; keep that thou hast unto thyself.
[10] And Jacob H3290 said H559 (8799), Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found H4672 (8804) grace H2580 in thy sight H5869, then receive H3947 (8804) my present H4503 at my hand H3027: for therefore I have seen H7200 (8804) thy face H6440, as though I had seen H7200 (8800) the face H6440 of God H430, and thou wast pleased with me H7521 (8799).
[11] Take H3947 (8798), I pray thee, my blessing H1293 that is brought H935 (8717) to thee; because God H430 hath dealt graciously with me H2603 (8804), and because H3605 I have H3426 enough H3605. And he urged H6484 (8799) him, and he took H3947 (8799) [it].
[12] And he said H559 (8799), Let us take our journey H5265 (8799), and let us go H3212 (8799), and I will go H3212 (8799) before thee.
[13] And he said H559 (8799) unto him, My lord H113 knoweth H3045 (8802) that the children H3206 [are] tender H7390, and the flocks H6629 and herds H1241 with young H5763 (8802) [are] with me: and if men should overdrive H1849 (8804) them one H259 day H3117, all the flock H6629 will die H4191 (8804).
[14] Let my lord H113, I pray thee, pass over H5674 (8799) before H6440 his servant H5650: and I will lead on H5095 (8691) softly H328, according as H7272 the cattle H4399 that goeth before me H6440 and the children H3206 be able to endure H7272, until I come H935 (8799) unto my lord H113 unto Seir H8165.
[15] And Esau H6215 said H559 (8799), Let me now leave H3322 (8686) with thee [some] of the folk H5971 that [are] with me. And he said H559 (8799), What H4100 needeth it? let me find H4672 (8799) grace H2580 in the sight H5869 of my lord H113.
[16] So Esau H6215 returned H7725 (8799) that day H3117 on his way H1870 unto Seir H8165.
[17] And Jacob H3290 journeyed H5265 (8804) to Succoth H5523, and built H1129 (8799) him an house H1004, and made H6213 (8804) booths H5521 for his cattle H4735: therefore the name H8034 of the place H4725 is called H7121 (8804) Succoth H5523.
[18] And Jacob H3290 came H935 (8799) to Shalem H8004, a city H5892 of Shechem H7927, which [is] in the land H776 of Canaan H3667, when he came H935 (8800) from Padanaram H6307; and pitched his tent H2583 (8799) before H6440 the city H5892.
[19] And he bought H7069 (8799) a parcel H2513 of a field H7704, where he had spread H5186 (8804) his tent H168, at the hand H3027 of the children H1121 of Hamor H2544, Shechem’s H7927 father H1, for an hundred H3967 pieces of money H7192.
[20] And he erected H5324 (8686) there an altar H4196, and called it H7121 (8799) Elelohe-Israel H415.

Genesis 33 (YLT)

[1] And Jacob lifteth up his eyes, and looketh, and lo, Esau is coming, and with him four hundred men; and he divideth the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two maid-servants;
[2] and he setteth the maid-servants and their children first, and Leah and her children behind, and Rachel and Joseph last.
[3] And he himself passed over before them, and boweth himself to the earth seven times, until his drawing nigh unto his brother,
[4] and Esau runneth to meet him, and embraceth him, and falleth on his neck, and kisseth him, and they weep;
[5] and he lifteth up his eyes, and seeth the women and the children, and saith, ‘What are these to thee?’ And he saith, ‘The children with whom God hath favoured thy servant.’
[6] And the maid-servants draw nigh, they and their children, and bow themselves;
[7] and Leah also draweth nigh, and her children, and they bow themselves; and afterwards Joseph hath drawn nigh with Rachel, and they bow themselves.
[8] And he saith, ‘What to thee is all this camp which I have met?’ and he saith, ‘To find grace in the eyes of my lord.’
[9] And Esau saith, ‘I have abundance, my brother, let it be to thyself that which thou hast.’
[10] And Jacob saith, ‘Nay, I pray thee, if, I pray thee, I have found grace in thine eyes, then thou hast received my present from my hand, because that I have seen thy face, as the seeing of the face of God, and thou art pleased with me;
[11] receive, I pray thee, my blessing, which is brought to thee, because God hath favoured me, and because I have all things;’ and he presseth on him, and he receiveth,
[12] and saith, ‘Let us journey and go on, and I go on before thee.’
[13] And he saith unto him, ‘My lord knoweth that the children are tender, and the suckling flock and the herd are with me; when they have beaten them one day, then hath all the flock died.
[14] Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant, and I-I lead on gently, according to the foot of the work which is before me, and to the foot of the children, until that I come unto my lord, to Seir.’
[15] And Esau saith, ‘Let me, I pray thee, place with thee some of the people who are with me;’ and he said, ‘Why is this? I find grace in the eyes of my lord.’
[16] And turn back on that day doth Esau on his way to Seir;
[17] and Jacob hath journeyed to Succoth, and buildeth to himself a house, and for his cattle hath made booths, therefore hath he called the name of the place Succoth.
[18] And Jacob cometh in to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, in his coming from Padan-Aram, and encampeth before the city,
[19] and he buyeth the portion of the field where he hath stretched out his tent, from the hand of the sons of Hamor, father of Shechem, for a hundred kesitah;
[20] and he setteth up there an altar, and proclaimeth at it God-the God of Israel.
