Gen. 32:22-32 Jacob Wrestles With God

If you would like to continue reading my writings, I have moved to Loving God Holy at WordPress. Thank you.

22That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two maidservants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. 23After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. 24So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak."

But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."

27The man asked him, "What is your name?"

"Jacob," he answered.

28Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome."

29Jacob said, "Please tell me your name."

But he replied, "Why do you ask my name?" Then he blessed him there.

30So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, "It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared."

31The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel, and he was limping because of his hip. 32Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the tendon attached to the socket of the hip, because the socket of Jacob's hip was touched near the tendon.
This is the second section of the lesson How to Win With God and Men (Genesis 32:1-32).

I am going to start adding the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs; just like in the One Year Study Bible. Only not as much to read. This way, it won't take me forever to finish. lol. Besides, I like the NT as well. God bless everyone.
