Jacob leaves the home of Laban with his family and property to meet Esau who he hasn't seen in twenty years.
Jacob wrestles with an angel in the night, prevails, and is given the name Israel.
Translation of Hebrew (Bereshit 32, 29):
"And he (the angel Jacob was wrestling with) said: 'Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel; for thou hast striven with God and with men, and hast prevailed.' "
Jacob and Esau meet.
Translation of Hebrew (Bereshit 33, 4):
"And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck and kissed him and they wept."
