Genesis 32 Summary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges
Ch. 32 (J, E.) Jacob at Mahanaim and Penuel
1 2. Jacob at Mahanaim.
3 12. The Approach of Esau, and Jacob’s Prayer.
13 21. Jacob’s Present to Esau.
22 32. Jacob’s Wrestling with the Angel.
In this section Gen 32:1-2 are from E; 3 13a from J (notice the different explanations given of the origin of the name “Mahanaim” in Gen 32:2 and in Gen 32:7-8); Gen 32:13b 21 are very probably from E, since 21b seems to take up the thread of 13a.

The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges
The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges is a biblical commentary set published in parts by Cambridge University Press from 1882 onwards. Anglican bishop John Perowne was the general editor. The first section published was written by theologian Thomas Kelly Cheyne and covered the Book of Micah.
Perowne exercised limited editorial control over the writers of individual commentaries: his aim was "to leave each contributor to the unfettered exercise of his own judgment".
