Genesis 32:20

20 and you shall say, Moreover, your servant Jacob is behind us. For he thought, I may appease him1 with the present that goes ahead of me, and afterward I shall see his face. Perhaps he will accept me.2

1 Samuel 25:27

27 And now let this bpresent that your servant has brought to my lord be given to the young men who follow my lord.

Proverbs 17:8

yA bribe is like a magic1 stone in the eyes of the one who gives it;

wherever he turns he prospers.
