Genesis 32:29-31 The Voice (VOICE)

Jacob: 29 Please, tell me your name.

Man: Why do you ask what my name is?

Right then and right there the man blessed Jacob. 30 So Jacob called the place Peniel because as he said, “I have come face to face with God, and yet my life was spared.” 31 The sun began to rise as Jacob passed by Penuel, limping because of his dislocated hip.
