||The messengers returned to Jacob with the report: 'We came to your brother Esau, and he is also heading toward you. He has 400 men with him.'
Vayashuvu hamal'achim el-Ya'akov lemor banu el-achicha el-Esav vegam holech likratcha ve'arba-me'ot ish imo.
||Jacob was very frightened and distressed. He divided the people accompanying him into two camps, along with the sheep, cattle and camels.
Vayira Ya'akov me'od vayetser lo vayachats et-ha'am asher-ito ve'et-hatson ve'et-habakar vehagmalim lishneh machanot.
||He said, 'If Esau comes and attacks one camp, at least the other camp will survive.'
Vayomer im-yavo Esav el-hamachaneh ha'achat vehikahu vehayah hamachaneh hanish'ar lifleytah.
