Ignorant (lacking in knowledge) people can be so cruel!! I’m posting this because recently I have been mocked and laughed at for things beyond my control… I have one of these illnesses as do some of my friends…. Not one of my Facebook friends will copy and paste (but I am counting on a true family member or friend to do it). If you would be there for me no matter what then copy and paste this. I’m doing this to prove a friend wrong that someone is always listening. I care. Hard to explain to someone who has no clue. It’s a daily struggle being in pain or feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on the outside.

Scripture 2 helpu.

Commentary on Genesis 32:22-31

Ask god 2 help u understand that god put pain on joseph (n re-named him Jacob) as a blessing-4 good reasons.+++

The story of Jacob’s wrestling with the angel provides an embarrassment of riches for homiletical possibilities.

There is the mysterious incarnation of God into human form; there is the act of wrestling which simultaneously connotes both intimacy and struggle, but ultimately yields a blessing; there is the theme of identity that is connected to one’s name — and, of course, there is the new name given to Jacob by God. In fact, this account is one of the most extensively interpreted stories from the book of Genesis, for good reason. Walter Brueggemann explains, “Its rich expository possibility is based in part on its lack of clarity, which permits various readings.”1 Though there is much in this text that is strange, or left open, the literary details demand a closer look and can yield even more exegetical treasures.

At the beginning of Genesis 32, preceding the lectionary pericope, Jacob has heard that his brother Esau is coming to meet him, accompanied by four hundred men (32:6). Jacob’s response is to panic (32:7), because he assumes Esau is coming to attack him (32:8). The subsequent verses narrate Jacob’s prayer to God for deliverance, and his plans of how to minimize the damages, plans that include sending a present to Esau, and dividing his camp.

Our text begins with Jacob sending his wives and children across the river Jabbok, an eastern tributary of the Jordan located about twenty miles north of the Dead Sea, at the border of Ammon (cf. Numbers 21:24, Deuteronomy 2:37 and 3:16, Joshua 12:2, Judges 11:22). The river’s name, Jabbok, plays on the name Jacob, and is related to the word “wrestle”).

Genesis 32:25 starts with the emphasis on Jacob’s solitude, and it is while Jacob is alone, in the night, at the ford of the Jabbok that a yet unidentified man wrestles with him. Perhaps Jacob thought his wrestling partner was Esau, though this mysterious man could also symbolize others with whom Jacob had wrestled in his life, including his father Isaac, or his father-in-law, Laban. There is very little detail given to any specifics about the wrestling match except for its length; it lasts until the dawn is about to break.

At that time, “he” sees that he is not able to prevail, and responds with a physical blow to Jacob’s thigh or hip (cf. 32:32). The NIV and NASB translate this action as “touched,” but the NRSV “struck” is also possible and could suggest more violence or force. Indeed, the result of the action is that Jacob’s leg is put out of joint. But still, Jacob does not let go. In 32:26, the wrestling partner voices his request that Jacob do so because the dawn is breaking. Terence Fretheim points out that the danger is not that God would be harmed by the daylight, but that Jacob would; “If Jacob holds on until daybreak, he is a dead man!”2 Jacob refuses to do so until he receives a blessing.

The blessing, though, does not immediately happen. Instead, a conversation about names ensues. In 32:27, we read, “And he said to him, ‘What is your name?’ And he answered, ‘Jacob.'” Jacob’s name has varyingly been translated as “heel/trickster/over-reacher/supplanter,”3  and Jacob must articulate this name, with all its connotations, to God. But God replies by doing two things: 1) identifying himself as the wrestling partner, and 2) by giving Jacob a new name (32:28). Jacob, then, wants to know God’s name, softening his request with the word “please” (32:29), but God responds with a question, asking Jacob why he asks. The text gives us no response from Jacob. Perhaps God’s question has silenced him. But if God’s question is the final word in the dialogue, it is not the final action: the last clause of 32:29 reports that God blessed Jacob.

The last we see of Jacob in this pericope, he names the place Peniel (“the face of God”) to represent his face-to-face encounter with God, and he limps away into the sunrise because of his hip. Immediately following our text, Genesis 33 recounts the meeting between Jacob and Esau. Before Jacob wrestled with God, he feared the encounter with his brother. But it proves to be a gracious one, and Jacob goes so far as to tell Esau, “I see your face as seeing the face of God” (33:10).

Jacob’s new name, Israel, is defined by the narrator in 32:28 as “he struggles (sarah) with God,” but its actual linguistic etymology is better translated as “God struggles” or “God rules.” That is, Jacob does not only wrestle with God, but God wrestles with Jacob. And it is costly for Jacob: he is marked and wounded after it, something that is meant to be remembered by all who follow the dietary restriction mentioned in the final verse of our text (32:32).

Frederick Buechner titled this story The Magnificent Defeat, a theme that is eloquently picked up by Ranier Maria Rilke in his poem, “The Man Watching.”4  The latter part of the poem says:

How small that is, with which we wrestle,
What wrestles with us, how immense;
Were we to let ourselves, the way things do,
Be conquered thus by the great storm–
We would become far-reaching and nameless.
What we triumph over is the small,
And the success itself makes us small.
The eternal and unexampled
Will not be bent by us.
This is the Angel, who appeared
To the wrestlers of the Old Testament:
When his opponent’s sinews
In that contest stretch like metal,
He feels them under his fingers
Like strings making deep melodies.

Whomever this Angel overcame
(who so often declined the fight)
He walks erect and justified
And great from that hard hand
Which, as if sculpting, nestled round him.
Winning does not tempt him.
His growth is this: to be
Deeply defeated by the ever-greater One.

Certainly, we all experience times when we feel as if we are wrestling with God. And many of us are marked by the wounds we have sustained from our struggles. This text reminds us that God is wrestling with us, and we grow in that process.

I think that a curious contextual observation may offer us a clue as to how we should interpret this text.  Prior to the wrestling match, Jacob seems to be in conflict with others routinely.  But after the match, we do not see him in any conflict again.  The closest we come is the flap over Dinah, but Jacob’s sons seem to take the lead in that conflict.  So, does this mark a pivot point in Jacob’s life, and thus in the progressive history of God’s people?  If so, what are we to understand about that point, and about the history before and after that point?

Parallel Commentaries
Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary

29:8-19 Let men beware how they call those prophets whom they choose after their own fancies, and how they consider their fancies and dreams to be revelations from God. False prophets flatter people in their sins, because they love to be flattered; and they speak smoothly to their prophets, that their prophets may speak smoothly to them. God promises that they should return after seventy years were accomplished. By this it appears, that the seventy years of the captivity are not to be reckoned from the last captivity, but the first. It will be the bringing to pass of God’s good word to them. This shall form God’s purposes. We often do not know our own minds, but the Lord is never at an uncertainty. We are sometimes ready to fear that God’s designs are all against us; but as to his own people, even that which seems evil, is for good. He will give them, not the expectations of their fears, or the expectations of their fancies, but the expectations of their faith; the end he has promised, which will be the best for them.

When the Lord pours out an especial spirit of prayer, it is a good sign that he is coming toward us in mercy.

Promises are given to quicken and encourage prayer.
He never said, Seek ye me in vain. Those who remained at Jerusalem would be utterly destroyed, notwithstanding what the false prophets said to the contrary. The reason has often been given, and it justifies the eternal ruin of impenitent sinners; Because they have not hearkened to my words; I called, but they refused.

Pulpit Commentary

Verse 11. – For I knew the thoughts, etc.; i.e. though seventy years must pass over you in exile, yet do not apprehend that I have forgotten you, for I know full well what my purpose is towards you – a purpose of restoring to you “peace” and prosperity. An expected end; rather, a future and a hope; i.e. a hopeful future (comp. Jeremiah 31:17, “There is a hope for thy future”). That unexpectant apathy which is the terrible accompaniment of so much worldly sorrow was not to be an ingredient in the lot of the Jews.

Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible

For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord,…. The purposes and resolutions of his heart concerning their welfare, particularly the restoration of them to their own land; these were within him, and known to him, and him only; they were remembered by him, and continued with him, as the “thoughts of his heart are to all generations”; and so would not fail of being performed; men think and forget what they have thought of, and so it comes to nothing; but thus it is not with God; he has taken up many thoughts in a way of love, grace, and mercy, concerning sinful men; about their election in Christ; a provision of all spiritual blessings for them; redemption and salvation by Christ; their effectual calling, adoption, and eternal life:

thoughts of peace, and not of evil: or “for evil” (t); these thoughts were concerning the temporal peace and prosperity of the Jews in Babylon, and not of anything to their hurt; yea, even their captivity was for their good, Jeremiah 24:5; and thoughts concerning his spiritual Israel, their peace and reconciliation with God, and the manner of bringing it about, by the blood, sufferings, and death of his Son in human nature, with whom he consulted and agreed about this matter; and concerning their inward spiritual peace of mind and conscience now, and their eternal peace hereafter: nor does he ever think of evil for them; whatever evil he thinks towards others, angels or men, he thinks none towards them; and whatever evil befalls them, he means it for good, and it does work for good unto them; he cannot think otherwise concerning them, consistent with his everlasting and unchangeable love to them; since he has designed so much good for them, does so much to them, and has so much to bestow upon them. The issue of all which is,

to give you an expected end; a very desirable one; such as they wished and hoped to have, and expected; such as would put an end to all their troubles, and put them into the enjoyment of all good things promised and waited for. This, in the mystical sense, may have reference to the Messiah, in whom all God’s thoughts of peace, concerning his special people, issue; he is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, of all things, Revelation 1:8; of all things in creation; of the Scriptures, promises and prophecies of it: “the end of the law for righteousness”, Romans 10:4, the fulfilling end of it, by his obedience, and sufferings, and death; and who was to come, and did come, at the end of the Jewish world, at the end of their civil and ecclesiastical state: he was long promised and prophesied of and was much waited for and expected, by the saints before the flood; from thence to Moses; from Moses to David; from David to the Babylonian captivity; from thence to the times of his coming, when there was a general expectation of him; and expected end was then given, as an instance of grace and good will to men. It may also be applied to salvation by Christ; the end of all God’s gracious purposes and designs; the end of the covenant of grace, the provisions, blessings, and promises of it; the end of Christ’s coming into the world, and of his obedience and death; the end of his prayers and preparations now in heaven; and the end of the faith of the saints on earth: this is an end hoped, waited for, and expected by faith; and for which there is good reason; since it is wrought out, prepared, and promised; saints are heirs of it; and now it is nearer than when they believed; and will be bestowed as a free grace gift, through Jesus Christ our Lord; and will be enjoyed as the issue and result of God’s eternal thoughts of peace concerning them. Some render it, “an expected reward” (u); which is given at the end of the work: others, “posterity and hope” (w); a numerous posterity, and hope and expectation of good things from the Lord, promised in the days of the Messiah.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary

11. I know—I alone; not the false prophets who know nothing of My purposes, though they pretend to know.

thoughts … I think—(Isa 55:9). Glancing at the Jews who had no “thoughts of peace,” but only of “evil” (misfortune), because they could not conceive how deliverance could come to them. The moral malady of man is twofold—at one time vain confidence; then, when that is disappointed, despair. So the Jews first laughed at God’s threats, confident that they should speedily return; then, when cast down from that confidence, they sank in inconsolable despondency.

expected end—literally, “end and expectation,” that is, an end, and that such an end as you wish for. Two nouns joined by “and,” standing for a noun and adjective. So in Jer 36:27, “the roll and the words,” that is, the roll of words; Ge 3:16, “sorrow and conception,” that is, sorrow in conception. Compare Pr 23:18, where, as here “end” means “a happy issue.”

“A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”
Proverbs 31:10-12 and 25-31 (NIV)
