NET © Notes

sn The name Peniel means “face of God.” Since Jacob saw God face to face here, the name is appropriate.

tn The word “explaining” is supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

tn Or “because.”

sn I have seen God face to face. See the note on the name “Peniel” earlier in the verse.

tn Heb “and my soul [= life] has been preserved.”

sn I have survived. It was commonly understood that no one could see God and live (Gen 48:16; Exod 19:21, 24:10; and Judg 6:11, 22). On the surface Jacob seems to be saying that he saw God and survived. But the statement may have a double meaning, in light of his prayer for deliverance in v. 11. Jacob recognizes that he has survived his encounter with God and that his safety has now been guaranteed.
