Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 30:8

And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, (c) and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.

(c) The arrogancy of man's nature appears in that she condemns her sister, after she has received this benefit from God to bear children.
