Verses 1-20

CHAPTER 33 The Reconciliation of Esau

1. Jacob meets Esau (Genesis 33:1-17 )

2. In the city of Shechem and the altar erected (Genesis 33:18-20 )

The reconciliation is effected, but Jacob is the same man of deceit. He tells his brother he will follow him to Seir. But he goes instead to Succoth. He built an altar there, but it is not the worship God expected. He should have gone to Bethel and fulfilled his vow.
