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.
