SEV Biblia, Chapter 32:28 Y él dijo: No se dirá más tu nombre Jacob, sino Israel; porque has peleado con Dios y con los hombres, y has vencido.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 32:28 Verse 28. Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel] larw Yisrael, from r sar, a prince, or hr sarah, he ruled as a prince, and la el, God; or rather from ya ish, a man, (the a aleph being dropped,) and har raah, he saw, la el, God; and this corresponds with the name which Jacob imposed on the place, calling it laynp peniel, the faces of God, or of Elohim, which faces being manifested to him caused him to say, ver. 30, µynp la µynp µyhla ytyar raithi Elohim panim el panim, i.e., ""I have seen the Elohim faces to faces, (i.e., fully and completely, without any medium,) lxntw ypn vattinnatsel napshi, and my soul is redeemed."" We may learn from this that the redemption of the soul will be the blessed consequence of wrestling by prayer and supplication with God: ""The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force."" From this time Jacob became a new man; but it was not till after a severe struggle that he got his name, his heart, and his character changed. After this he was no more Jacob the supplanter, but Israel - the man who prevails with God, and sees him face to face.
And hast prevailed.] More literally, Thou hast had power with God, and with man thou shalt also prevail. µyhla µ[ Im Elohim, with the strong God; µyna µ[ im anashim, with weak, feeble man. There is a beautiful opposition here between the two words: Seeing thou hast been powerful with the Almighty, surely thou shalt prevail over perishing mortals; as thou hast prevailed with God, thou shalt also prevail with men: God calling the things that were not as though they had already taken place, because the prevalency of this people, the Israelites, by means of the Messiah, who should proceed from them, was already determined in the Divine counsel. He has never said to the seed of Jacob, Seek ye my face in vain. He who wrestles must prevail.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 24-32 - A great while before day, Jacob being alone, more fully spread his fears before God in prayer. While thus employed, One in the likeness of a man wrestled with him. When the spirit helpeth our infirmities, an our earnest and vast desires can scarcely find words to utter them, an we still mean more than we can express, then prayer is indeed wrestlin with God. However tried or discouraged, we shall prevail; an prevailing with Him in prayer, we shall prevail against all enemie that strive with us. Nothing requires more vigour and unceasin exertion than wrestling. It is an emblem of the true spirit of fait and prayer. Jacob kept his ground; though the struggle continued long this did not shake his faith, nor silence his prayer. He will have blessing, and had rather have all his bone put out of joint than go away without one. Those who would have the blessing of Christ, mus resolve to take no denial. The fervent prayer is the effectual prayer The Angel puts a lasting mark of honour upon him, by changing his name Jacob signifies a supplanter. From henceforth he shall be celebrated not for craft and artful management, but for true valour. Thou shalt be called Israel, a prince with God, a name greater than those of the great men of the earth. He is a prince indeed that is a prince with God; those are truly honourable that are mighty in prayer. Having powe with God, he shall have power with men too; he shall prevail, and gai Esau's favour. Jacob gives a new name to the place. He calls it Peniel the face of God, because there he had seen the appearance of God, an obtained the favour of God. It becomes those whom God honours, to admire his grace towards them. The Angel who wrestled with Jacob wa the second Person in the sacred Trinity, who was afterwards God manifest in the flesh, and who, dwelling in human nature, is calle Immanuel, Ho 12:4, 5. Jacob halted on his thigh. It might serve to kee him from being lifted up with the abundance of the revelations. The su rose on Jacob: it is sun-rise with that soul, which has had communio with God __________________________________________________________________
