NET © Notes

tn Heb “he”; the referent (the man) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “him”; the referent (Jacob) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Or “injured”; traditionally “touched.” The Hebrew verb translated “struck” has the primary meanings “to touch; to reach; to strike.” It can, however, carry the connotation “to harm; to molest; to injure.” God’s “touch” cripples Jacob – it would be comparable to a devastating blow.
