The Patriarch Jacob, later known as Israel, was the twin brother of Esau; both of whom were born to Isaac, the son of Abraham, by his wife Rebekah. Upon reaching adulthood, Jacob would serve his deceitful uncle, Laban, in Syria for a period of twenty years; during which time he acquired his two wives, Leah and Rachel, and his twelve sons, who became the fathers of the twelve tribes of Israel: "And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed." Genesis 32:24-28, KJV Jacob means 'heel holder' or 'supplanter'.
