New Defender's Study Bible Notes

33:20 El-elohe-Israel. On his initial entrance into Canaan, the promised land (the family had spent some time in Succoth, still east of the Jordan), Jacob desired both to own some of the land (as a token of his eventual possession of all of it) and to build an altar to his God, which he named–“The God who was the God of Israel.”
