Israel’s True Biblical Source ✡ “No Longer Jacob, but Israel” – ISRAEL365

And he said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, because you have striven with [an angel of] God and with men, and you have prevailed.”

וַיֹּאמֶר לֹא יַעֲקֹב יֵאָמֵר עוֹד שִׁמְךָ כִּי אִם יִשְׂרָאֵל כִּי שָׂרִיתָ עִם אֱ-לֹהִים וְעִם אֲנָשִׁים וַתּוּכָל

בְּרֵאשִׁית לג:כט

Today’s Israel Inspiration

Israel יִשְׂרָאֵל is from the verb לִשְׂרוׂת (to strive with or wrestle) and the word אֵל El (God). It is the name given to Jacob after he wrestles with God’s angel as described in our verse. This is the source of the name Israel, as in the Children of Israel, the Land of Israel and the People of Israel.
