Genesis 32:29-31 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

29 Then Jacob asked Him, Tell me, I pray You, what [in contrast] is Your name? But He said, Why is it that you ask My name? And [a][the Angel of God declared] a blessing on [Jacob] there.

30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel [the face of God], saying, For I have seen God face to face, and my life is spared and not snatched away.

31 And as he passed Penuel [Peniel], the sun rose upon him, and he was limping because of his thigh.
