The Lord also has ·some things [a case/lawsuit; or a dispute; 4:1] against Judah.
    He will punish ·Israel [L Jacob] for what they have done;
    he will ·give [repay] them ·what they deserve [according to their deeds].
·Their ancestor Jacob [L He] ·held on to his brother’s heel [or struggled with/supplanted his brother]
    ·while the two of them were being born [L in the womb; Gen. 25:19–26].
·When he grew to be a man [L In his strength/manhood],
    he ·wrestled [struggled] with God.
When Jacob ·wrestled [struggled] with the angel and ·won [prevailed],
    he ·cried [wept] and ·asked for his blessing [pleaded for/sought his favor; Gen. 32:22–32].
Later, ·God met with him [he found him] at Bethel
    and spoke with him there [Gen. 35:1].
