Genesis 10

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 Gen. 9.26 and 24.7. Other Hebrew divine names translated as 'God' will be indicated as follows. Eloah +God; El, (meaning 'The Mighty,' see Gen. 14.18), *God. For the meaning of Jehovah, (Heb. Yahveh, or Yehveh), the ever-existing One, see Ex. 3.14,15; Isa. 40.28. For Jah, the existing One objectively, see Ex. 15.2; Ps. 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 Ezek. 2.4.10:2 Madai, (e-9) Media, or Medes. 10:5 of (f-6) Lit. 'were separated.' 10:6 Cush, (g-6) These names are given later to countries, i.e. Ethiopia, Egypt, Libya. 10:8 Nimrod. (h-4) Rebel. 10:10 Babel, (i-8) See 2 Kings 17.24. 10:11 out (k-5) Or 'he went to.' Asshur, (l-6) Assyria. so ver. 22. 10:19 goes (a-12) Lit. 'thou goest.' 10:22 Aram. (b-13) Syria. 10:25 Peleg, (c-14) Division. 10:30 goes (a-9) Lit. 'thou goest.'
