Holman Bible Dictionary
Name or title that Jacob used in referring to God (Genesis 31:42
; compare Genesis 31:53
; Genesis 46:1
). Evidently the patriarchs used various names to refer to God until He revealed His personal name to Moses (Exodus 6:3
). Some scholars translate the Hebrew expression “Kinsman of Isaac” or “Refuge of Isaac.” See Patriarchs; God of the Fathers
