Genesis 32

1:1 God (a-4) Heb. Elohim, the plural of Eloah, 'the Supreme'. It is Deity in the absolute sense. Elohim will, in the text, appear only in the name of Jehovah Elohim; moreover, when Elohim following immediately on Jehovah has a grammatical adjunct, its place will be taken by the English word 'God'. see Gen. 9.26 and 24.7. Other Hebrew divine names translated as 'God' will be indicated as follows. Eloah +God; El, (meaning 'The Mighty,' see Gen. 14.18), *God. For the meaning of Jehovah, (Heb. Yahveh, or Yehveh), the ever-existing One, see Ex. 3.14,15; Isa. 40.28. For Jah, the existing One objectively, see Ex. 15.2; Ps. 68.4. The name seems to express absolute rather than continuous existence. For Adonai (a name of God, not merely a title), translated 'Lord', see Ezek. 2.4.32:2 Mahanaim. (b-22) Two camps. see Cant. 6.13. 32:7 troops. (c-29) 32:8 escape. (d-22) Lit. 'be for escape.' 32:10 troops. (c-36) Lit. 'camps.' see v. 2. for (e-6) Lit. 'smaller than.' faithfulness (f-13) Lit. 'truth.' 32:13 came (g-11) Or 'had come.' 32:20 me. (a-38) Lit. 'lift up my face.' 32:23 river, (b-10) Or 'torrent.' 32:25 joint (c-15) joint (c-21) The hollow of the joint. 32:28 Israel; (d-13) Wrestler, or prince of God. wrestled (e-17) Some, 'acted as a prince.' 32:29 askest (f-21) Or 'why askest thou thus.' 32:30 Peniel (g-9) Face of God. 32:32 joint (c-16) The hollow of the joint.
