Naphtali

By Jeff A. Benner

And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali. Genesis 30:8 (KJV)

The Hebrew word translated as 'wrestlings' in the verse above is naphtul meaning 'to entwine' such as the twisting together of cords to make a rope or to be entwined together through wrestling. The name Naphtali fully means 'my wrestling.'
