Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed; he divided the people with him into two camps, along with the flocks, cattle, and camels.
He thought, "If Esau comes to one camp and attacks it, the remaining one can escape."
Then Jacob said, "God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, the LORD who said to me, 'Go back to your land and to your family, and I will cause you to prosper,'
I am unworthy of all the kindness and faithfulness You have shown Your servant. Indeed, I crossed over this Jordan with my staff, and now I have become two camps.
Please rescue me from the hand of my brother Esau, for I am afraid of him; otherwise, he may come and attack me, the mothers, and their children.
You have said, 'I will cause you to prosper, and I will make your offspring like the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted.'"
