Genesis 32:27

Context
NETBible

The man asked him, 1  “What is your name?” 2  He answered, “Jacob.”

XREF

NET © Notes

tn Heb “and he said to him.” The referent of the pronoun “he” (the man who wrestled with Jacob) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

sn What is your name? The question is rhetorical, since the Lord obviously knew Jacob’s identity. But since the Lord is going to change Jacob’s name, this question is designed to bring focus Jacob’s attention on all that his name had come to signify.
