Genesis 32:32

Context
32:32 That is why to this day 1  the Israelites do not eat the sinew which is attached to the socket of the hip, because he struck 2  the socket of Jacob’s hip near the attached sinew.

1 sn On the use of the expression to this day, see B. S. Childs, “A Study of the Formula ‘Until This Day’,” JBL 82 (1963): 279-92.

2 tn Or “because the socket of Jacob’s hip was struck.” Some translations render this as an impersonal passive. On the translation of the word “struck” see the note on this term in v. 25.
