And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was strained, as he wrestled with him.
And he said: 'Let me go, for the day breaketh.' And he said: 'I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.'
And he said unto him: 'What is thy name?' And be said: 'Jacob.'
And he said: 'Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel; for thou hast striven with G-d and with men, and hast prevailed.'
And Jacob asked him, and said: 'Tell me, I pray thee, thy name.' And he said: 'Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name?' And he blessed him there.
And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: 'for I have seen G-d face to face, and my life is preserved.'
And the sun rose upon him as he passed over Peniel, and he limped upon his thigh.
Therefore the children of Israel eat not the sinew of the thigh-vein which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day; because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh, even in the sinew of the thigh-vein.
