He took them, and sent them over the stream, and sent over that which he had.
Ya`akov was left alone, and wrestled with a man there until the breaking of the day.
When he saw that he didn't prevail against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh, and the hollow of Ya`akov's thigh was strained, as he wrestled.
The man said, "Let me go, for the day breaks." Ya`akov said, "I won't let you go, unless you bless me."
He said to him, "What is your name?" He said, "Ya`akov."
He said, "Your name will no longer be called 'Ya`akov,' but, 'Yisra'el,' for you have fought with God and with men, and have prevailed."
Ya`akov asked him, "Please tell me your name." He said, "Why is it that you ask what my name is?" He blessed him there.
Ya`akov called the name of the place Peni'el: for, he said, "I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved."
The sun rose on him as he passed over Peni'el, and he limped because of his thigh.
Therefore the children of Yisra'el don't eat the sinew of the hip, which is on the hollow of the thigh, to this day, because he touched the hollow of Ya`akov's thigh in the sinew of the hip.
