Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יַעֲקֹב (“taking hold of the heel, supplanter, layer of snares,” comp. Genesis 25:26, 27:36 Hosea 12:4), pr.n. Jacob, the younger of the twin sons of Isaac; also called Israel (יִשְׂרָאֵל); the ancestor of the nation of Israel, -Gen. 2550. אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב the God of Jacob, i.e. Jehovah, Isaiah 2:3; Psalms 20:2. בֵּית יַעֲקֹב and simply יַעֲקֹב the house or family of Jacob; poetically used of the people of Israel, i.q. יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל compare עֵשָׂו. Used of the land of Israel, Genesis 49:7 elsewhere used of the whole people regarded as one person, e.g. Isa 41:1-29, 43, 44, 45, etc.; rarely used of the kingdom of Ephraim, Hosea 12:3; Micah 1:5; Isaiah 17:4 or even, as also Israel is used in the later books, of the kingdom of Judah, Obadiah 1:18; Nahum 2:3.
