Genesis 32:27-29 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

27 And the man said to him, “What is your name?”

And Jacob said, “My name is Jacob.”

28 Then the man said, “Your name will not be Jacob. Your name will now be Israel.[a] I give you this name because you have fought with God and with men, and you have won.”

29 Then Jacob asked him, “Please tell me your name.”

But the man said, “Why do you ask my name?” Then the man blessed Jacob at that place.


  1. Genesis 32:28 Israel This name might mean “he fights for God,” “he fights with God,” or “God fights.”
