Every name of a person or place in the Bible has a meaning. Names are so important that God changed the names of Abram to Abraham, Sarai to Sarah, and Jacob to Israel. Jesus changed Simon's name to Peter. Saul (which means "demanded") became Paul (which means "little"). In many cases, the meaning of the name of a person in the Bible reflects the actions and character of that person. The names in this dictionary are taken from the King James Version and the New International Version. Whenever those versions differ in the name, the King James spelling is listed first.
Jacob (ja'-cub) = He will supplant; he that supplants; he that follows after; a heeler; one who trips up; takes hold by the hand; supplanter; a detainer.
Israel (iz'-ra-el) = He will be a prince with God; prince with God; contender of God; he strives with God; soldier of God; God will rule; God ruled man; ruling with God; one that prevails with God.

Note: In its printed and electronic form, this resource does not include verse references for the names of the Bible. However, using the search feature on a Bible from Olive Tree would quickly bring up all references to that Biblical name, a feature not available in the printed form.

The Olive Tree team has been busy working on a major technology update to give you the best reading and studying experience possible. The Bible Study App 5.9 or 6.0 technology update is already available for our Windows Store, Android, and iOS apps. We are currently working on the 6.0 update for our Mac and Windows Desktop apps, and hope to have them released soon!×
Will 6.0 Be Available For My Device?
We are currently working on the 6.0 update for our Mac and Windows Desktop apps. Please note that 6.0 will only be available to the Mac App Store for those running the latest Mac OS X version (Yosemite).
When Is The 6.0 Update Expected?
The 6.0 update is our top priority. We are working hard to get the update out as soon as we can. This is a major update to our core technology that requires us to rework major sections of the app. It could still be several months before we have fully rolled out 6.0 to all platforms.
Will I Have To Purchase This Resource Again?
Nope! If you purchase this product now, you will be able to download it as soon as your app has been updated to 5.9 or above at no additional charge.
