8 And said. If Esau come to the one company, aodsmlie it, then the other company wnich is left shall escape.

9<T And Jacob said. O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, the LORD which saidst unto me. Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee:

io I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou halt shewed unto thy servant ; for with my staff 1 pasted over this Jordan, ana now [ am become two bands.:

it Deliver me, I pray thee, from the haod of my brother,from the haod of Esau: tor 1 fear him, leit he will come and smite me, dud the mother with the children,

14Two hundred flic- goati,& twenty hagoats, two hundred ews, and twenty rams,

tj Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls, twenty stie-asses, and ten soles.

16 And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves j and said unto his servants. Pass overbefore me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove.

■ 7 And he commanded the fore-most laying, When Esau my brother meeteth thee, and asketh thee, laying, Whose *rt thou?and whethergoest thou ? and whose *r* these before thee?

19 And so commanded hethe second,and the thirds and all that followed the oroves, saying, on this manner shall you spake unto Esau, when you find him.

to And sayyc moreover,Behold,thy servant Jacob U behind us : for he laid, I will appeas; him with the present that goeth before me and afterward I will see his face, peradventure he will accept of me.
