Genesis 13

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. 2.4.13:1 south. (b-23) Negeb, 'south country.' name for the region of Canaan (Judah) bordering on the desert. 13:8 brethren. (e-28) Lit. 'men, brethren.' 13:10 plain (a-11) 'Circle.' used for the plain at the mouth of the Jordan, most of which was afterwards covered by the Salt sea. Ch. 14.3. Sodom (b-24) Burning. Gomorrah; (c-26) Submersion. Zoar. (d-41) Zor, or Zar, in Egypt. not Bela, ch. 14.2,8.
