24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26 Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak."
26 But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."
27 The man asked him, "What is your name?"
27 "Jacob," he answered.
29 Jacob said, "Please tell me your name."
29 But he replied, "Why do you ask my name?" Then he blessed him there.
31 The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel,[c] and he was limping because of his hip. 32 Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the tendon attached to the socket of the hip, because the socket of Jacob's hip was touched near the tendon.
