Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary

Jacob

Additional Links

The ever-memorable name of the ever-memorable person, concerning whom it hath pleased God the Holy Ghost to say so much throughout the whole Scripture. His name signifies a supplanter; but after the memorable scene at Jabbock, when Jacob wrestled with the angel and pevailed, the Lord himself changed his name to Israel, a prince. (See Genesis 32:27-28) For his history I refer to the book of Genesis, from Genesis 15:1-21 to the end.
