Genesis 32:28

Καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· Οὐ κληθήσεται ἔτι τὸ ὄνομά σου Ἰακὼβ, ἀλλὰ Ἰσραὴλ ἔσται τὸ ὄνομά σου, ὅτι ἐνίσχυσας μετὰ Θεοῦ καὶ μετὰ ἀνθρώπων δυνατός ἔσῃ.

And he said to him, “Your name shall no longer be called Iakob, but Israel shall be your name, because you have prevailed with God and shall be powerful with men.”

ויאמר לא יעקב יאמר עוד שׁמך כי אם־ישׂראל כי־שׂרית עם־אלהים ועם־אנשׁים ותוכל׃


* ἔσῃ | some MSS omit ἔσῃ
* powerful Or influential OR mighty
