Fear of Isaac

Resource Toolbox
Name or title that Jacob used in referring to God (Genesis 31:42 ; compare Genesis 31:53 ; Genesis 46:1 ). Evidently the patriarchs used various names to refer to God until He revealed His personal name to Moses (Exodus 6:3 ). Some scholars translate the Hebrew expression “Kinsman of Isaac” or “Refuge of Isaac.” See Patriarchs; God of the Fathers .
