“And I haue oxen, and asses, flockes, and men seruants and women seruants: and I haue sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy sight.”
King James Version (KJV)
2. And when Iacob saw them, he said, This is Gods hoste: and hee called the name of that place Mahanaim. 3. And Iacob sent messengers before him, to Esau his brother, vnto the land of Seir, the countrey of Edom. 4. And he commaunded them, saying, Thus shall ye speake vnto my lord Esau, Thy seruant Iacob saith thus, I haue soiourned with Laban, and stayed there vntill now. 5. And I haue oxen, and asses, flockes, and men seruants and women seruants: and I haue sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy sight. 6. ¶ And the messengers returned to Iacob, saying, Wee came to thy brother Esau, and also he commeth to meet thee, and foure hundred men with him. 7. Then Iacob was greatly afraid, and distressed, and he diuided the people that was with him, and the flockes, and herdes, and the camels into two bands, 8. And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the other company which is left, shall escape.
