katapi HOME Genesis 32:22-32 - Peniel - Jacob is named Israel  Gn.32.22-32

32 22 During the night Jacob rose, took his two wives, his two slave-girls, and his eleven sons, and crossed the ford of Jabbok. 32 23 He took them and sent them across the gorge with all that he had. 32 24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him there till Or at daybreak. 32 25 When the man saw that he could not throw Jacob, he struck him in the hollow of his thigh, so that Jacob's hip was dislocated as they wrestled. 32 26 The man said, 'Let me go, for day is breaking', but Jacob replied, 'I will not let you go unless you bless me.' 32 27 He said to Jacob, 'What is your name ?', and he answered, 'Jacob.' 32 28 The man said, 'Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel That is God strove, because you strove with God and with men, and prevailed.' 32 29 Jacob said, 'Tell me, I pray, your name.' He replied, 'Why do you ask my name?', but he gave him his blessing there. 32 30 Jacob called the place Peniel That is Face of God (elsewhere Penuel), 'because', he said, 'I have seen God face to face and my life is spared.' 32 31 The sun rose as Jacob passed through Penuel, limping because of his hip. 32 32 This is why the Israelites to this day do not eat the sinew of the nerve that runs in the hollow of the thigh; for the man had struck Jacob on that nerve in the hollow of the thigh.
