Bible Commentary for Genesis 32:32

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 32:32


32:30 Peniel - That is, the face of God, because there he had seen the appearance of God, and obtained the favour of God.

32:31 He halted on his thigh - And some think he continued to do so to his dying day. If he did, he had no reason to complain, for the honour and comfort he obtained by his struggle was abundantly sufficient to countervail the damage, though he went limping to his grave.


Discussion for Genesis 32:32

  • Timothy Wayne George on Genesis 32:32
    God wanted the children of Israel to remember forever, the part of the body that He touched to heal Jacob. Jacob is the only man, who wrestled with God, and won. It was then that God changed the name of Jacob, to Israel, which is the same when we are born again, we become Christians. If any man is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old is gone, and all things become new.
