Bible: Genesis 32:3-6

32:3 Jacob sent messengers on ahead 1  to his brother Esau in the land of Seir, the region 2  of Edom. 32:4 He commanded them, “This is what you must say to my lord Esau: ‘This is what your servant 3  Jacob says: I have been staying with Laban until now. 32:5 I have oxen, donkeys, sheep, and male and female servants. I have sent 4  this message 5  to inform my lord, so that I may find favor in your sight.’

32:6 The messengers returned to Jacob and said, “We went to your brother Esau. He is coming to meet you and has four hundred men with him.”
