Genesis 32:29

Ἠρώτησεν δὲ Ἰακὼβ καὶ εἶπεν· Ἀνάγγειλόν μοι τὸ ὄνομά σου. καὶ εἶπεν· Ἵνα τί τοῦτο ἐρωτᾷς τὸ ὄνομά μου; καὶ ηὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ.

Then Iakob asked and said, “Tell me your name.” And he said, “Why do you ask this, my name?” And he blessed him there.

וישׁאל יעקב ויאמר הגידה־נא שׁמך ויאמר למה זה תשׁאל לשׁמי ויברך אתו שׁם׃
