1 En Jakob het sy opgeslaan, en toe hy meteens Esau sien aankom en vier honderd man saam met hom, het hy die kinders onder Lea en Ragel en onder die twee slavinne verdeel.

2 En hy het die slavinne met hulle kinders eerste, en Lea met haar kinders daaragter, en Ragel en Josef laaste opgestel;

3 maar hy self het voor hulle uit gegaan en hom sewe maal na die aarde gebuig, totdat hy by sy broer gekom het.

4 Toe loop Esau hom tegemoet en omhels hom en val hom om die hals en soen hom; en hulle het geween.

5 Daarna het hy sy opgeslaan en die vroue en kinders gesien en gesê: Wie het jy daar by jou? En hy antwoord: Die kinders wat God uit genade aan u dienaar geskenk het.

6 En die slavinne het nader gekom, hulle en hulle kinders, en hul neergebuig.

7 En Lea het ook nader gekom met haar kinders en hul neergebuig; en daarna het Josef nader gekom en Ragel en hul neergebuig.

8 Daarop hy: Wat is jou bedoeling met daardie hele laer wat ek teëgekom het? En hy antwoord: Om guns te vind in die van my heer.

9 Maar Esau : Ek het baie, my broer! Wat joue is, laat dit joue bly!

10 Toe antwoord Jakob: Ag nee, as ek nou guns in u gevind het, neem dan my geskenk uit my hand aan. Want juis daarom het ek u aangesig te sien gekry soos 'n mens die aangesig van God sien, en u het behae in my gehad.

11 Neem tog my begroetingsgeskenk wat u aangebied is, want God het my genade bewys, en ek het volop. En hy het by hom aangehou, sodat hy dit aangeneem het.

12 Daarop hy: Laat ons opbreek en verder trek, en ek sal langs jou trek.

13 Maar hy antwoord hom: My heer weet dat die kinders swak is, en dat ek lammerooie en melkkoeie by my het; as 'n mens hulle net een dag ooreis, dan sterf al die kleinvee.

14 My heer moet maar voor sy dienaar uit trek, en ék sal op my gemak trek na die gang van die vee wat voor my uit gaan, en na die gang van die kinders, tot ek by my heer in Seïr aankom.

15 Toe Esau: Laat my tog van die manskappe wat by my is, by jou laat staan. En hy antwoord: Waarvoor dan? Laat my guns in die van my heer vind!

16 So het Esau dan dié dag teruggegaan padlangs na Seïr toe.

17 Maar Jakob het na Sukkot weggetrek en vir hom 'n huis gebou en takkrale vir sy vee gemaak. Daarom het hy die plek genoem Sukkot.

18 En Jakob het behoue aangekom by die stad Sigem wat in die land Kanaän is, toe hy van Paddan-Aram gekom het--hy het sy laer voor die stad opgeslaan

19 en die stuk grond gekoop waar hy sy tent opgeslaan het, van die seuns van Hemor, die vader van Sigem, vir honderd geldstukke.

20 Daar het hy ook 'n altaar opgerig en dit genoem: Die God van Israel is God.

4352. 'And fell on his neck' means a second joining together involving everything included within that universal embodiment of truth. This is clear from the meaning of 'falling on the neck' as a closer joining together since it is a closer kind of embrace. Furthermore 'the neck' in the internal sense means the influx and communication of interior things with exterior, and therefore means a joining together of them, see 3542, 3603. The reason why this is a joining together of everything - or with everything - within that universal embodiment of truth is that Jacob, to whom 'his' refers here, means the universal embodiment of every kind of truth, 4346.

[2] The joining together of good and truths within the natural is described here, and the nature of that joining together is as follows: Good flows by way of the internal man into the external man, where it joins itself to the truths which have been introduced by way of the external man. For the good which flows in by way of the internal man is the good of love; indeed no good exists, spiritual or celestial, which is not the good of love. Love is the source of such good and the reason why it is called good with man. It is the actual love present within good and going with good that effects any joining together. Unless love were present within and at hand no joining together would ever be possible, for love is nothing other than a spiritual joining together since it is love that brings it about. This love comes from nowhere else than the Lord, for He is the fountain and source of all celestial and spiritual love, and therefore of all good which flows from that love. That love is twofold, celestial and spiritual. Celestial love is love to the Lord, while spiritual love is love to the neighbour and is called charity. These are the kinds of love from which all celestial or spiritual good is derived and which join themselves to truths which are called the truths of faith. For the truths of faith regarded without love are mere sounds devoid of any life; but through love, and so through being joined to the good of love, they receive life. From this it becomes clear that no measure of faith at all exists except with those who have the good of love in them, and that faith exists insofar as love is present.

[3] And since no measure of faith at all exists except with those who have the good of love within them, neither therefore does any confidence or trust exist with them. With people other than those who have love and charity, trust or confidence which is called the trust or confidence of faith is either spurious or else the kind that can exist even with devil-spirits when subject to fear or to anguish, or else to false persuasion resulting from self-love and love of the world. However, even though at the present day faith without the good works of charity has been made the bringer of salvation, people in a remote way still see that the truths of faith have no power to save because those truths are known also by the evil. Therefore they recognize confidence or trust, to which they give the name faith. They call it faith without being aware of what it really is, or that such is possible even with the evil, or that no spiritual confidence exists if it does not flow in by way of the good of love and charity. They are unaware of the fact that such spiritual confidence does not flow in when a person is subject to fear or anguish, or to false persuasion resulting from self-love and love of the world, but when he is in a state of freedom. Nor are they aware that spiritual confidence does not exist in people other than those with whom good has been joined to truths and become deeply rooted during the course of their lives prior to this, and so does not exist in cases of illness, misfortune, danger to life, or when death is at hand. If this confidence or trust which shows itself in a case of compulsion could save a person, then every mortal human being would be saved, for every one is brought with ease to that confidence; indeed there are none to whom the Lord - who desires the salvation of all - would not grant it. But regarding the confidence or trust which is called faith - what it is, the nature of it, and whom it exists with - this must in the Lord's Divine mercy be discussed elsewhere.
