Old Testament

The Pentateuch

How did Jacob change over the years

Jacob was no longer the selfish, dishonest man he had been in his youth. He was humble, and knew his own wiliness would not help matters with Esau. So he prayed to God: “I am not worthy of all the faithfulness and unfailing love you have shown to me, your servant. When I left home, I owned nothing but a walking stick, and now my household fills two camps! O LORD, please rescue me from my brother, Esau. I am afraid that he is coming to kill me, along with my wives and children. But you promised to treat me kindly and to multiply my descendants until they become as numerous as the sands along the seashore.” (NLT, Genesis 32:10–12)
