Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 32:28

_ _ Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel — The old name was not to be abandoned; but, referring as it did to a dishonorable part of the patriarch’s history, it was to be associated with another descriptive of his now sanctified and eminently devout character.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 32:24-32.

Israel:
i.e. a prince of God

as a prince:
Or, according to the LXX, Vulgate, Houbigant, Dathe, and Rosenmuller, "because thou hast power with God, thou shalt also prevail with men."
