In Hosea 12:3-4 the prophet interprets Jacob's wrestling bout at Peniel (Gen. 32:24.ff.) as a wrestling with God's mal'akh: God's "angel" or "messenger." The history of Christian exegesis contains its own record of a wrestling bout: the wrestling of Christian interpreters with God's Old Testament messengers who recorded the Scriptures of the Old Covenant.
