Israel [EBD]

the name conferred on Jacob after the great prayer-struggle at Peniel (Gen. 32:28), because "as a prince he had power with God and prevailed." (See JACOB.) This is the common name given to Jacob's descendants. The whole people of the twelve tribes are called "Israelites," the "children of Israel" (Josh. 3:17; 7:25; Judg. 8:27; Jer. 3:21), and the "house of Israel" (Ex. 16:31; 40:38).

This name Israel is sometimes used emphatically for the true Israel (Ps. 73:1: Isa. 45:17; 49:3; John 1:47; Rom. 9:6; 11:26).

After the death of Saul the ten tribes arrogated to themselves this name, as if they were the whole nation (2 Sam. 2:9, 10, 17, 28; 3:10, 17; 19:40-43), and the kings of the ten tribes were called "kings of Israel," while the kings of the two tribes were called "kings of Judah."

After the Exile the name Israel was assumed as designating the entire nation.

See: Israel.

ISRAEL [SMITH]

(the prince that prevails with God).
  1. The name given, (Genesis 32:28) to Jacob after his wrestling with the angel, (Hosea 12:4) at Peniel. Gesenius interprets Israel "soldier of God."
  2. It became the national name of the twelve tribes collectively. They are so called in (Exodus 3:16) and afterward.
  3. It is used in a narrower sense, excluding Judah, in (1 Samuel 11:8; 2 Samuel 20:1; 1 Kings 12:16) Thenceforth it was assumed and accepted as the name of the northern kingdom.
  4. After the Babylonian captivity, the returned exiles resumed the name Israel as the designation of their nation. The name Israel is also used to denote lay-men, as distinguished from priests, Levites and other ministers. (Ezra 6:16; 9:1; 10:25; Nehemiah 11:3) etc.

ISRAELITE [SMITH]

(descendant of Israel). In (2 Samuel 17:25) Ithra, the father of Amasa, is called "an Israelite," while in (1 Chronicles 2:17) he appears as "Jether the Ishmaelite." The latter is undoubtedly the true reading.

ISRAEL [ISBE]

ISRAEL - iz'-ra-el.

See JACOB.

ISRAELITE; ISRAELITISH [ISBE]

ISRAELITE; ISRAELITISH - iz'-ra-el-it, iz'-rael-it-ish: Belonging to the tribes of ISRAEL (which see). Occurs 4 times in the New Testament: of Nathanael (Jn 1:47); used by Paul (Rom 9:4; 11:1; 2 Cor 11:22).
