Genesis 32:3-5 And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the land of Seir, the country of Edom. And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall you speak unto my lord Esau; Thy servant Jacob says this, I have sojourned with Laban and stayed there until now. And I have oxen and asses, flocks and menservants and women servants. And I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy sight.

Genesis 32:6-8 And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to your brother Esau and also he comes to meet you and four hundred men with him. Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed. And he divided the people that was with him and the flocks and herds and the camels, into two bands; And said, If Esau come to the one company and smite it, then the other company which is left shall escape.

Genesis 32:9 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, the LORD which said unto me, Return unto your country and to your kindred and I will deal well with you.

Genesis 32:11 Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau. For I fear him, lest he will come and smite me and the mother with the children.

Genesis 32:12 And you said, I will surely do you good and make your seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.

Genesis 32:13 And he lodged there that same night and took of that which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother;

Genesis 32:14-20 Two hundred she goats and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine.(buffalo).and ten bulls, twenty she asses and ten foals. And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove.(a flock or herd).by themselves and said unto his servants, Pass over before me and put a space betwixt drove and drove. And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meets you and asks you, saying, Whose are these? And where are you going? And whose are these before you? Then you shall say, They be your servant Jacob's; it is a present sent unto my lord Esau. And, behold, also he is behind us. And so commanded he the second and the third and all that followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall you speak unto Esau, when you find him. And say you moreover, Behold, your servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goes before me and afterward I will see his face, peradventure he will accept of me.

Genesis 32:21-23 So went the present over before him and himself lodged that night in the company. And he rose up that night and took his two wives and his two womenservants and his eleven sons and passed over the ford Jabbok. And he took them and sent them over the brook and sent over that he had.(all else that he had for Esau).

Genesis 32:24-26 And Jacob was left alone and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.(looked like a man, was an angel {Hosea 12:4} and vanished like God or an angel would do). And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint as he wrestled with him. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaks. And he said, I will not let you go, except you bless me.
Genesis 26:3,4.
Genesis 32:27 And he said unto him, What is your name? And he said, Jacob.

Genesis 32:28 And he said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel. For as a prince have you power with God and with men and have prevailed.
The story is just above (verses beginning verse 24) which led to his name change.
Genesis 32:29 And Jacob asked him and said, Tell me, I pray you, your name. And he said, Wherefore is it that you do ask after my name? And he blessed him there.

Genesis 32:30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel. For I have seen God face to face.(Exodus 33:11).and my life is preserved.
