    SEV Biblia, Chapter 32:29

    Entonces Jacob le preguntó, y dijo: Declárame ahora tu nombre. Y él respondió: ¿Por qué preguntas por mi nombre? Y lo bendijo allí.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 32:29

    Verse 29. Tell me, I
    pray thee, thy name.] It is very likely that Jacob wished to know the name of this angel, that he might invoke him in his necessities: but this might have led him into idolatry, for the doctrine of the incarnation could be but little understood at this time; hence, he refuses to give himself any name, yet shows himself to be the true God, and so Jacob understood him; (see ver. 28;) but he wished to have heard from his own lips that name by which he desired to be invoked and worshipped.

    Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name?] Canst thou be ignorant who I am? And he blessed him there - gave him the new heart and the new nature which God alone can give to fallen man, and by the change he wrought in him, sufficiently showed who he was. After this clause the Aldine edition of the Septuagint, and several MSS., add d esti qaumaston, or kai touto esti qaumaston, which is wonderful; but this addition seems to have been taken from Judg. xiii. 18.


    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 __________________________________________________________________
