Genesis 33

My lord

Not all at once does "Jacob" cease to dominate the walk of "Israel." Cf. Genesis 35:1-10 where the walk becomes according to the new name.

Shechem's

Called "Sychem," Acts 7:16.

El-elohe-Israel

i.e. God, the God of Israel. Jacob's act of faith, appropriating his new name, but also claiming Elohim in this new sense as the God through whom alone he could walk according to his new name. See Genesis 14:18-23.

See note 2 of (See Scofield "Genesis 14:18") for a similar appropriation by Abraham.
