Genesis 33

33
1And Ya’akov lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, ‘Esav (hairy) came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Le’ah (weary; grieved), and unto Rachel (ewe), and unto the two handmaids.
2And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Le’ah and her children after, and Rachel (ewe) and Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) hindermost.
3And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.
4And ‘Esav (hairy) ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.
5And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who [are] those with youi? And he said, The children which God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] has graciously given youri servant.
6Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves.
7And Le’ah (weary; grieved) also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after came Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves.
8And he said, What [mean] youi by all this drove which I met? And he said, [These are] to find grace in the sight of my lord.
9And ‘Esav (hairy) said, I have enough, my brother; keep that youi hast unto thyself.
10And Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of) said, No, I pray youi, if now I have found grace in youri sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen youri face, as though I had seen the face of God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered], and youi were pleased with me.
11Take, I pray youi, my blessing that is brought to youi; because God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took [it].
12And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go before youi.
13And he said unto him, My lord knows that the children [are] tender, and the flocks and herds with young [are] with me: and if men should overdrive them one day, all the flock will die.
14Let my lord, I pray youi, pass over before his servant: and I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goes before me and the children be able to endure, until I come unto my lord unto Se’ir (hairy, shaggy; The Hairy Guys; riding the storm).
15And ‘Esav (hairy) said, Let me now leave with youi [some] of the folk that [are] with me. And he said, Why do I need it? let me find grace in the sight of my lord [“There’s no need for my lord to be so kind to me”].
16So ‘Esav (hairy) returned that day on his way unto Se’ir (hairy, shaggy; The Hairy Guys; riding the storm).
17And Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of) journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.
18And Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of) came to Shalem, a city of Sh’khem [back or shoulder, portion], which [is] in the land of Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues), when he came from Paddan-aram (a place of height; field; plain); and pitched his tent before the city.
19And he bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor [male-donkey (ass)] (a donkey), Sh’khem’s [back or shoulder, portion] father, for an hundred pieces of money.
20And he erected there an altar, and called it El-elohe-Isra’el [God-EL, the Mighty God of Isra’el-Prince with God].

1And Ya'akov lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, hinei, Esav came, and with him arba me'ot ish (four hundred men). And he divided the yeladim unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two shefachot. 2And he put the shefachot and their yeladim rishonah, and Leah and her yeladim acharonim, and Rachel and Yosef acharonim. 3And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground sheva pe'amim, until he came near to achiv (his brother). 4And Esav ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his tzavar (neck), and kissed him; and they wept. 5And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the nashim and the yeladim; and said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The yeladim which Elohim hath graciously given thy eved. 6Then the shefachot came near, they and their yeladim, and they bowed themselves. 7And Leah also with her yeladim came near, and bowed themselves; and after came Yosef near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves. 8And he said, What meanest thou by all this machaneh which I met? And he said, These are to find chen (grace) in the eyes of adoni. 9And Esav said, I have enough, achi (my brother); keep that thou hast unto thyself. 10And Ya'akov said, No, now, if I have found chen (grace) in thy sight, then receive my minchah at my yad inasmuch as I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the p'nei Elohim (the face of G-d) vatirtzeini (and thou wast pleased to accept me, thou wast appeased by me). 11Accept, now, my berakhah that is brought to thee; because Elohim hath dealt graciously with me, and because yesh li khol (there is to me all, my needs are met). And he urged him, and he accepted. 12And he said, Nise'ah (let us take our journey), and let us go, I will go next to thee. 13And he said unto him, Adoni knoweth that the yeladim are tender and the nursing tzon and bakar are upon me; and if men should overdrive them yom echad, all the tzon will die. 14Let now adoni, pass over before his eved; and I will lead on slowly, according to the pace of the drove that goeth before me and the pace the yeladim are able to endure, until I come unto adoni at Seir. 15And Esav said, Let me now leave with thee some of HaAm that are with me. And he said, What needeth it? Let me find chen in the sight of adoni. 16So Esav returned that day on his derech unto Seir. 17And Ya'akov journeyed to Sukkot, and built him a bais, and made sukkot for his mikneh; therefore the shem of the makom is called Sukkot. 18And Ya'akov came shalem to Ir Shechem, which is in eretz Kena'an, when he came from Padan Aram; and encamped before the Ir. 19And he bought a chelkat hasadeh (piece of land), where he had pitched there his ohel, from the yad Bnei Chamor Avi Shechem, for a hundred pieces of kesitah (money). 20And he erected there a Mizbe'ach, and called it El Elohei Yisroel.
