1. Jacob and the Angel Marker
Inscription.  

And there was one that wrestled with him until daybreak....
He said, "Let me go, for day is breaking."
But Jacob answered, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."
He then asked, "What is your name?" "Jacob"....
He said, "Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel...."
Genesis 32: 26 - 29
