Thematic Bible: Name given to jacob


Thematic Bible



“Your name will no longer be Jacob,” He said. “It will be Israel because you have struggled with God and with men and have prevailed.”

God said to him:Your name is Jacob;
you will no longer be named Jacob,
but your name will be Israel.So He named him Israel.

They are still practicing the former customs to this day. None of them fear the Lord or observe their statutes and ordinances, the law and commandments the Lord commanded the descendants of Jacob. He had renamed him Israel.
