THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

32:22And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok.

32:23And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had.

32:24And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

32:25And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.

32:26And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.

32:27And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.

32:28And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

32:29And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.

32:30And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

32:31And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh.

32:32Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in the sinew that shrank.
