And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
This word “wrestle” is only used a couple of times in Scripture. Its root word is “dust” and it means to “bedust” or to “kick up dust.”
Could it be what Jacob viewed to be wrestling, God viewed as dancing — just “kicking up some dust?”
If so, they danced all night long.
