LXX Genesis 33:18


16 Then Esau turned back on that day to his way to Seir. 17 And Iakob was set- ting out for Tents, and he made himself dwellings there and made tents for his cattle; therefore he called the name of that place Tents. 18 And Iakob came to Salem, a city of Sikima, which is in the land of Chanaan, when he came from Mesopotamia of Syria, and he encamped fac- ing the city. 19 And from Hemmora, Sychem’s fa- ther, he acquired for one hundred lambs the por- tion of the field, there where he had set up his tent, 20 and there he set up an altar and invoked the God of Israel.

Samaritan Genesis 33:18

Samaritan Penteteuch

16 So Esau returned that day on his way unto Seir. 17 And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth. 18 And Jacob came to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, when he came from Padan-aram; and pitched his tent before the city. 19 And he bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem's father, for an hundred pieces of money. 20 And he erected there an altar, and called it El-elohe-Israel.
