Jacob gets attacked by Esau's angel after crossing a river alone. What was so important on the other side of the river to cause Jacob to face danger by himself?
Jacob sends angels to Esau, his brother, in Edom. He gives them a message to deliver: "My lord, Esau, your servant Jacob says, 'I've lingered with Laban as a stranger till now. I've accumulated flocks and servants. Please, my lord, find favor in your eyes.'"
