Jacob finally seizes the upper hand and demands a blessing of the Angel. 

But suddenly he remembers the last time he asked for a blessing- when he stole his brother's birthright from his blind father, which caused his exile from his home and family.

Instinctively he claps his hand over the Angel's mouth, terrified of the blessing he might receive.
