Recommend class reads it out loud; one person per verse
Genesis 32:6 The messengers returned to Jacob, saying, "We came to your brother Esau, and he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him." 7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed; and he divided the people that were with him, and the flocks and herds and camels, into two companies, 8 thinking, "If Esau comes to the one company and destroys it, then the company that is left will escape."
22 The same night he got up and took his two wives, his two maids, and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. 23 He took them and sent them across the stream, and likewise everything that he had. 24 Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he struck him on the hip socket; and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. 26 Then the man said, "Let me go, for the day is breaking." But Jacob said, "I will not let you go, unless you bless me." 27 So the man said to Jacob, "What is your name?" And he said, "Jacob." 28 Then the man said, "You shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with humans, and have prevailed." 29 Then Jacob asked him, "Please tell me your name." But he said, "Why is it that you ask my name?" And there the man blessed him. 30 So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, "For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life is preserved." 31 The sun rose upon him as he passed Penuel, limping because of his hip.
Genesis 33:1 Now Jacob looked up and saw Esau coming, and four hundred men with
him. So he divided the children among Leah and Rachel and the two maids. 2 He put
the maids with their children in front, then Leah with her children, and Rachel and
Joseph last of all. 3 He himself went on ahead of them, bowing himself to the ground
seven times, until he came near his brother. 4 But Esau ran to meet him, and embraced
him, and fell on his neck and kissed him, and they wept. 5 When Esau looked up and
saw the women and children, he said, "Who are these with you?" Jacob said, "The children
whom God has graciously given your servant." 6 Then the maids drew near, they and
their children, and bowed down; 7 Leah likewise and her children drew near and bowed
down; and finally Joseph and Rachel drew near, and they bowed down. 8 Esau said,
"What do you mean by all this company that I met?" Jacob answered, "To find favor
with my lord." 9 But Esau said, "I have enough, my brother; keep what you have for
yourself." 10 Jacob said, "No, please; if I find favor with you, then accept my present
from my hand; for truly to see your face is like seeing the face of God-

TRANSITION TO ACTIVITY
1 Scatter the jacks onto the playing surface. Throw them directly in front of you, and try to scatter them evenly, not too close together and not too far apart.
2 Toss the ball into the air. Throw it straight up, and give it enough height to give you time to pick up your jacks, but not so high that it veers off beyond your reach.
3 Pick up a single jack. With the same hand that you threw the ball with, grab one jack into your hand before the ball bounces.
4 Let the ball bounce once. The ball can only bounce one time -
5 Grab the ball before it bounces again. Use the same hand that you used to pick up the jack.
6 Collect all the jacks in this manner. Keep scooping the jacks one at a time. This first round is called "onesies."
7 Continue on to the next rounds. Scatter the jacks again, and this time pick up two jacks each time. This is called the "twosies" round. Next, pick up three each round, then four, then five, and then six.
8 Move on to the next player after a foul. Your turn ends and goes to the next player counterclockwise to you once you foul. There are a number of different ways to foul, including:
9 Pick up where you left off. If your turn is reached again, start from where you were before your foul.
10 Keep going until you have a winner or until time is called by the teacher/leader.
The winner will be the first person to complete "six-
