1 Jokūbas, pakėlęs akis, pamatė ateinantį Ezavą su keturiais šimtais vyrų. Jis paskirstė vaikus tarp Lėjos, achelės ir abiejų tarnaičių:

2 sustatė tarnaites ir jų vaikus pirmoje eilėje, Lėją ir jos vaikus už jų, o achelę ir Juozapą paskutinėje eilėje.

3 Jis pats nuėjo pirma jų ir septynis kartus nusilenkė iki žemės, kol susitiko su broliu.

4 Ezavas bėgo prie jo, apkabino jį ir bučiavo, puolęs jam ant kaklo, ir jie abu verkė.

5 Pamatęs žmonas ir vaikus, jis klausė: “Kas šitie?” Tas atsakė: “Vaikai, kuriais Dievas apdovanojo tavo tarną”.

6 Tada priartėjusios tarnaitės su savo vaikais nusilenkė.

7 Paskui priartėjo Lėja ir jos vaikai ir nusilenkė. Pagaliau priartėjo Juozapas ir achelė ir taip pat nusilenkė.

8 Ezavas toliau klausė: “Kam tie būriai, kuriuos sutikau?” Jis atsakė: “Kad rasčiau malonę savo valdovo akyse!”

9 Ezavas atsakė: “Mano broli, aš turiu užtektinai, pasilaikyk, ką turi!”

10 Jokūbas tarė: “O ne! Jei radau malonę tavo akyse, tai priimk iš manęs šią dovaną. Aš matau tavo veidą, tarsi matyčiau Dievo veidą, ir tu esi man malonus.

11 Prašau, priimk palaiminimą, kurį tau atnešiau. Nes Dievas buvo man maloningas, ir aš visko turiu”. Jokūbui prašant, brolis priėmė dovaną.

12 Tada Ezavas tarė: “Dabar keliaukime­aš eisiu tavo priešakyje!”

13 Bet Jokūbas atsakė: “Mano valdovas žino, kad vaikai gležni ir kad dalis avių bei galvijų yra jaunikliai; jei juos per greitai varysime nors vieną dieną, jie išgaiš.

14 Mano valdove, eik pirma savo tarno, o aš pamažu toliau judėsiu, kaip įstengia eiti gyvuliai ir vaikai, kol nueisiu pas savo valdovą į Seyrą”.

15 Tada Ezavas sakė: “Leisk man palikti su tavimi dalį savo žmonių!” Bet tas atsakė: “Kam to reikia? Kad tik surasčiau malonę savo valdovo akyse!”

16 Ezavasdieną sugrįžo į Seyrą,

17 o Jokūbas judėjo toliau į Sukotą. Ten jis pasistatė namus, o gyvuliams­ pastoges. Todėl pavadino tą vietą Sukotu.

18 Jokūbas, keliaudamas iš Mesopotamijos, laimingai atvyko į Sichemą, kuris yra Kanaano krašte, ir apsistojo šalia miesto.

19 Sklypą, kuriame pasistatė palapinę, jis nusipirko iš Sichemo tėvo Hamoro sūnų už šimtą monetų.

20 Jis ten pastatė aukurą ir jį pavadino: “Izraelio Dievo galybė”.

4347. 'And bowed to the ground seven times' means the submission of all things. This is clear from the meaning of 'bowing to the ground' as the feeling of humility, dealt with in 2153, and so as submission. The highest degree of submission is meant by 'seven times' and the submission of all things by the fact that Jacob bowed down; for 'Jacob' represents the universal existence of all things, as stated immediately above in 4346.

[2] As regards the expression of humility and submission, few know why these are necessary in the presence of the Divine when a person is engaged in worship. Nor consequently do they know what is accomplished by these actions. Those who have no knowledge of interior things cannot do other than believe that, like any human being bent on glory, the Divine desires people's expression of humility and their submission to Him, and that therefore the Divine desires glory from them and is affected by the glory which people ascribe to Him. But the truth of the matter is altogether different from this. The Divine is not moved by any desire for glory. Indeed what glory does the Divine have which comes from man? He desires humility and submission not for His own sake but for man's. For when humility is present in a person he turns away from the evil and falsity present in him, 2327, 2423, 3994, and in so doing removes them. Once these have been removed the Divine is able to flow in with good and truth. Anyone can recognize this within himself. One who is haughty is ruled by self-love and not only sets himself up above others but also does not care a thing about what is Divine; as a consequence he turns back the influx of good and therefore prevents it from being joined to truths. This is the real reason why a person should express humility in the presence of the Divine.

[3] From this it is evident that good cannot be joined to truths, and so a person cannot be regenerated, unless he humbles himself and is submissive. Humility and submission are attributed to truths because truths flow in by way of the external man whereas good does so by way of the internal. The things which flow in by way of the external man hold within them misconceptions and consequently falsities together with affections for them. Not so the things which flow in by way of the internal man since it is the Divine which flows in by way of this internal man and goes to meet truths so that they may be joined together. From this one may now see the implications of 'the submission of all things', which is the meaning of 'Jacob bowed to the ground seven times until he came right up to his brother'.
