Etymology

ISRAEL, the other name of JACOB and the northern kingdom of the ISRAELITES, does not refer to a person or place in the Book of Mormon. The Hebrew name Yisraสพel may mean "God fights; rules; shines; heals" (HALOT s.v. ISRAEL). ISRAEL may also be mentiioned in the Merneptah Stele 1.27, where we read that "Israel (EGYPTIAN I.si.ri.สพar, with foreign person/people determinative) is laid waste (EGYPTIAN fk.t) and his seed is not,"[1] although it may also refer to another people or place.
