And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.

And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.

As hrog eh seose e hooillyn, as honnick eh ny mraane as y chloan; as dooyrt eh, Quoi ad shen mayrt? As dooyrt eh, Yn chloan ta Jee dy graysoil er choyrt da dty harvaant.

And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant.

Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves.

And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast pleased with me.


Gow, ta mee guee ort, my vannaght, ta mee er choyrt lhiam hood; er-yn-oyr dy vel Jee er ghellal dy graysoil rhym: as er-y-fa dy vel dy liooar aym pene; as hionn eh er, as ren eh goaill eh.

And he said unto him, My lord knoweth 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.


Lhig da my hiarn, ta mee guee ort, goll harrish roish e harvaant: as hem's er my hoshiaght ass my aash, cordail myr vees y maase ta goll roym, as y chloan er y hon; derrey hig-ym gys my hiarn, gys Seir.

Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant: and I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the children be able to endure, until I come unto my lord unto Seir.
