      Luke 3:33


      «b»Jacob«/b» («u»Hebrew «/u»: «u»Standard «/u» ; «u»Septuagint «/u» «u»Greek«/u»: ; "heel" or "leg-puller"), also known as «b»Israel«/b» («u»Hebrew «/u»: «u»Standard «/u» «i»Yisra«/i», «i»Isr«/i»; «u»Septuagint «/u» «u»Greek «/u»:; "persevere with God"; «u» «/u»), was the third «u»patriarch «/u» of the Jewish people, and ancestor of the twelve «u»tribes of Israel «/u», named after ten of his twelve sons, as well as the two sons of his son Joseph.
      In the «u»Hebrew Bible «/u» he is the son of «u»Isaac «/u» and «u»Rebecca «/u», the grandson of «u»Abraham «/u» and «u»Sarah «/u» and of «u»Bethuel «/u», and the twin brother of «u»Esau «/u». He had twelve sons and one daughter by his «u»two wives «/u», «u»Leah «/u» and «u»Rachel «/u», and their maidservants, «u»Bilhah «/u» and «u»Zilpah «/u». The children were «u»Reuben «/u», «u»Simeon «/u», «u»Levi «/u», «u»Judah «/u», «u»Dan «/u», «u»Naphtali «/u», «u»Gad «/u», «u»Asher «/u», «u»Issachar «/u», «u»Zebulun «/u», daughter «u»Dinah «/u», «u»Joseph «/u», and «u»Benjamin «/u». Before the birth of Benjamin, Jacob is renamed "Israel" by an angel, the name after which the modern nation of «u»Israel «/u» is named.
      As a result of a severe famine in «u»Canaan «/u», Jacob resettled his whole family in «u»Egypt «/u», in the «u»Land of Goshen «/u», at the time when his son Joseph was viceroy. Jacob died there 17 years later, and Joseph carried Jacob's remains to the land of Canaan, where he gave them stately burial in the same «u»Cave of Machpelah «/u» as were buried Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca and Jacob's wife Leah («u»Genesis 49:29-50:14 «/u»).
