p.35. Robed Jacob and the half naked barefoot angel are depicted struggling, on a top of a mountain, to the background of a rising sun, whose rays are shining through the whole scene. They are kneeling on the ground. The angel is seen from the back, spreading his wings towards the upper corners of the picture. Jacob, clasped by the angel, is trying to ward him off. Jacob's bag and stick are thrown on a rock. Below the picture is printed in Hebrew block letters: יעקב נאבק עם המלאך "Jacob wrestling with the angel" Below the picture are printed the fifth and the sixth parts of "One who knows?"
