Hosea 12:2-4 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)

The Lord has a charge to bring against Judah;
    he will punish Jacob[a] according to his ways
    and repay him according to his deeds.
In the womb he grasped his brother’s heel;
    as a man he struggled with God.
He struggled with the angel and overcame him;
    he wept and begged for his favour.
He found him at Bethel
    and talked with him there –
