Genesis 29

Darby's Synopsis of the New TestamentDarby's Synopsis


1:1 God (a-4) Heb. Elohim , the plural of Eloah , 'the Supreme'. It is Deity in the absolute sense. Elohim will, in the text, appear only in the name of Jehovah Elohim ; moreover, when Elohim following immediately on Jehovah has a grammatical adjunct, its place will be taken by the English word 'God'. see Genesis 9:26 and 24.7. Other Hebrew divine names translated as 'God' will be indicated as follows. Eloah +God; El , (meaning 'The Mighty,' see Genesis 14:18 ), *God. For the meaning of Jehovah, (Heb. Yahveh , or Yehveh ), the ever-existing One, see Exodus 3:14 ,Exodus 3:15 ; Isaiah 40:28 . For Jah , the existing One objectively, see Exodus 15:2 ; Psalms 68:4 . The name seems to express absolute rather than continuous existence. For Adonai (a name of God, not merely a title), translated 'Lord', see Ezekiel 2:4 .
