9 Then Jacob said, “God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, Lord, who said to me, ‘Return to your country and to your relatives, and I will [a]make you prosper,’10 [b]I am unworthy of all the [c]favor and of all the [d]faithfulness, which You have shown to Your servant; for with only my staff I crossed this Jordan, and now I have become two companies.11 Save me, please, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau; for I fear him, that he will come and [e]attack me and the mothers with the children.12 For You said, ‘I will assuredly [f]make you prosper and make your [g]descendants as the sand of the sea, which is too great to be counted.’”
12 Righteous are You, Lord, when I plead my case with You; Nevertheless I would discuss matters of justice with You: Why has the way of the wicked prospered? Why are all those who deal in treachery at ease?
Philippians 4:6-7New American Standard Bible (NASB)
6 Do not [a]be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and pleading with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all [b]comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
