These he gave to his servants, every herd by itself, and he said to his servants, Go on before me, and let there be a space between one herd and another.
And you are to say further, Jacob, your servant, is coming after us. For he said to himself, I will take away his wrath by the offering which I have sent on, and then I will come before him: it may be that I will have grace in his eyes.
And he said, What were all those herds which I saw on the way? And Jacob said, They were an offering so that I might have grace in my lord's eyes.
All is well for the man who is kind and gives freely to others; he will make good his cause when he is judged.
