give us grace to act graciously to others (as Jacob did), and faithfully to you (which Jacob didn’t)
8 Esau said, “What do you mean by all this company which I met?”
Jacob said, “To find favour in the sight of my lord.”
9 Esau said, “I have enough, my brother; let that which you have be yours.”
10 Jacob said, “Please, no, if I have now found favour in your sight,
then receive my present at my hand, because I have seen your face,
as one sees the face of God, and you were pleased with me.
11 Please take the gift that I brought to you,
because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough.”
He urged him, and he took it.
12 Esau said, “Let’s take our journey, and let’s go, and I will go before you.”
13 Jacob said to him 14 Please let my lord pass over before his servant, and I will lead on gently, according to the pace of the livestock that are before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my lord to Seir.”
16 So Esau returned that day on his way [South] to Seir. 17 Jacob travelled [North] to 18 Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, 20 He erected an altar there
Note: all this despite God telling him in Chapter 31:13 “I am the God of Bethel [Not Shechem], where you anointed a pillar, where you vowed a vow to me. Now arise, get out from this land, and return to the land of your birth.’”
