Genesis 34

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.
