11 Receive my blessings, which I have brought thee, because God has had mercy on me, and I have all things; and he constrained him, and he took [them]. 12 And he said, Let us depart, and proceed right onward. 13 And he said to him, My lord knows, that the children are very tender, and the flocks and the herds with me are with young; if then I shall drive them hard one day, all the cattle will die. 14 Let my lord go on before his servant, and I shall have strength on the road according to the ease of the journey before me, and according to the strength of the children, until I come to my lord to Seir. 15 And Esau said, I will leave with thee some of the people who are with me. And he said, Why so? it is enough that I have found favour before thee, [my] lord. 16 And Esau returned on that day on his journey to Seir. 17 And Jacob departs to his tents; and he made for himself there habitations, and for his cattle he made booths; therefore he called the name of that place, Booths. 18 And Jacob came to Salem, a city of Secima, which is in the land of Chanaan, when he departed out of Mesopotamia of Syria, and took up a position in front of the city. 19 And he bought the portion of the field, where he pitched his tent, of Emmor the father of Sychem, for a hundred lambs. 20 And he set up there an altar, and called on the God of Israel.

11 λαβὲ τὰς εὐλογίας μου, ἃς ἤνεγκά σοι, ὅτι ἠλέησέ με ὁ Θεὸς καὶ ἔστι μοι πάντα. καὶ ἐβιάσατο αὐτὸν καὶ ἔλαβε· 12 καὶ εἶπεν· ἀπάραντες πορευσώμεθα ἐπ᾿ εὐθεῖαν. 13 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ· ὁ κύριός μου γινώσκει, ὅτι τὰ παιδία ἁπαλώτερα καὶ τὰ πρόβατα καὶ αἱ βόες λοχεύονται ἐπ᾿ ἐμέ· ἐὰν οὖν καταδιώξω αὐτὰ ἡμέραν μίαν, ἀποθανοῦνται πάντα τὰ κτήνη. 14 προελθέτω ὁ κύριός μου ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ παιδὸς αὐτοῦ, ἐγὼ δὲ ἐνισχύσω ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ κατὰ σχολὴν τῆς πορεύσεως τῆς ἐναντίον μου καὶ κατὰ πόδα τῶν παιδαρίων, ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν με πρὸς τὸν κύριόν μου εἰς Σηείρ. 15 εἶπε δὲ ῾Ησαῦ· καταλείψω μετὰ σοῦ ἀπὸ τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ. ὁ δὲ εἶπεν· ἱνατί τοῦτο; ἱκανόν, ὅτι εὗρον χάριν ἐναντίον σου, κύριε. 16 ἀπέστρεψε δὲ ῾Ησαῦ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ εἰς Σηείρ. 17 Καὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἀπαίρει εἰς σκηνάς· καὶ ἐποίησεν ἑαυτῷ ἐκεῖ οἰκίας καὶ τοῖς κτήνεσιν αὐτοῦ ἐποίησε σκηνάς· διὰ τοῦτο ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου, Σκηναί. 18 καὶ ἦλθεν ᾿Ιακὼβ εἰς Σαλὴμ πόλιν Σικίμων, ἥ ἐστιν ἐν γῇ Χαναάν, ὅτε ἐπανῆλθεν ἐκ τῆς Μεσοποταμίας Συρίας, καὶ παρενέβαλε κατὰ πρόσωπον τῆς πόλεως. 19 καὶ ἐκτήσατο τὴν μερίδα τοῦ ἀγροῦ, οὗ ἔστησεν ἐκεῖ τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ, παρὰ ᾿Εμμὼρ πατρὸς Συχὲμ ἑκατὸν ἀμνῶν. 20 καὶ ἔστησεν ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον καὶ ἐπεκαλέσατο τὸν Θεὸν ᾿Ισραήλ.
