HOST: and he called the Name of that Place MAHANAIM. 3 And Jacob fent Meffengers before him to Efau his Brother, unto the Land of Seir, the Countrey of Edom.
4 And he commanded them, faying, Thus fhall ye fpeak unto my Lord Efau; Thy Servant Jacob faith thus, I have SOJOURNED with Laban, and stayed there until now.
5 And I have Oxen, and Affes, Flocks, and Men-fervants, and Women-fervants: and I have fent to tell my LORD, that I may find Grace in thy fight.
6 And the Meffengers returned unto Jacob, faying, We came to thy Brother Efau, and alfo he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred Men with him.
7 Then Jacob was greatly AFRAID, and DISTRESSED: and he divided the People that was with him, and the Flocks, and Herds, and the Camels into two Bands;
8 And faid, If Efau come to the one Company and smite it, then the other Company which is left shall escape.
9 And Jacob faid, O GOD of my Father Abraham, and GOD of my Father Ifaac, the LORD which faidft unto me, RETURN unto thy Countrey and to thy Kindred, and I will deal WELL with thee:
10 I am NOT WORTHY of the LEAST of all the MERCIES, and of all the TRUTH, which thou haft SHEWED unto thy Servant; for with my Staff I paffed over this Jordan, and now I am become two BANDS.
11 DELIVER me, I pray thee, from the Hand of my Brother, from the Hand of Efau : for I fear him, left he will come and fmite me, and the Mother with the Children.

21 So went the Present over before him: and himself lodged that Night in the Company.
22 And he rose up that Night, and took his two Wives, and his two Women-fervants, and his eleven Sons, and paffed over the Ford Jabbok.
23 And he took them, and fent them over the Brook, and fent over that he had.
24 And Jacob was left alone and there wrestled a Men with him, until the breaking of the Day.
25 And when he faw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the Hollow of his Thigh and the Hollow of Jacob's Thigh was out of joynt, as he wrestled with him.

4 Yea, he had Power over the ANGEL, and PREVAILED: he WEPT, and made SUPPLICATION unto him: he found him in Beth-el, and there he SPAKE with us.
s Even the LORD GOD of HOSTS, the LORD is his Memorial.
6 Therefore turn thou to thy GOD: keep MERCY and JUDGMENT, and WAIT on thy God continually.

2 These are the Generations of Jacob; Jofeph being feventeen Years old, was feeding the Flock with his Brethren, and the Lad was with the Sons of Bilhah, and with the
Sons of Zilpah, his Father's Wive's: and Jofeph brought unto his Father their evil Report.
3 Now Ifrael loved Jofeph more than all his Children, because he was the Son of his old Age: and he made him a Coat of many Colours.
4 And when his Brethren saw that their Father loved him more than all his Brethren, they hated him, and could not fpeak peaceably unto him.
5 And Jofeph dreamed a Dream, and he told it his Brethren and they hated him yet the more.
6 And he faid unto them, Hear, I pray you, this Dream which I have dreamed.
7 For behold, we were binding Sheaves in the Field, and lo, my Sheaf arofe, and alfo ftood upright; and behold, your Sheaves flood round about, and made Obeifance to my Sheave.
8 And his Brethren faid unto him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or fhalt thou indeed have Dominion over us? and they hated him yet the more for his Dreams, and for his Words.
9 And he dreamed yet another Dream, and told it his Brethren, and faid, Behold, I have dreamed a Dream more, and behold, the Sun and the Moon, and the eleven Stars made Obeifance to me.
10 And he told it to his Father and his Father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this Dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy Mother and thy Brethren indeed come to bow down our felves to thee to the Earth?
11 And his Brethren envied him: but his Father obferved the faying,
12 And his Brethren went to feed their Father's Flock in Shechem.
13 And Ifrael faid unto Jofeph, Do not thy Brethren feed the Flock in Shechem? Come, and I will fend thee unto them. And he faid unto him, Here am I.
14 And he faid to him, Go, I pray thee, fee whether it be well with thy Brethren, and well with the Flocks; and bring me word again. So he fent him out of the Vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.
