EL-ELOHE-ISRAEL . Upon the ‘parcel of ground’ which he had bought at Shechem, Jacob built an altar and called it El-elohe-Israel , ‘El, the god of Israel,’ Genesis 33:20 (E [Note: Elohist.] ). This appears a strange name for an altar , and it is just possible that we should emend the text, so as to read with the LXX [Note: Septuagint.] , ‘he called upon the God of Israel.’
