[B-Greek] Gen 32:30 GOT (32:29 in English) and demonstrative

Could someone tell me whether there's any native Greek reason for the
construction that appears (among other places) in Gen 32:30:

hINA TI TOUTO ERWTAiS TO ONOMA MOU

In other words, is this just a case of the translator rendering more or less
word-for-word and thereby producing a construction that would never occur in
Greek otherwise? Or can the demonstrative actually be understood to fit in
terms of normal Greek grammar?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
