I found this interesting little chiasmus in Hosea 12:4 recently
B------met with God
B1-----God spoke with
Jacob met with God at Bethel, and in that instance, God spoke with us in the words of the prophet. There is a corporate dimension to God's individual dealing with the Patriarchs that is beautifully put here by Hosea.
