Genesis 19

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. 2.4.19:2 place. (a-47) i.e. the ground before the city-gates. 19:4 quarter. (b-29) Lit. 'from the end,' with the force of 'to the end,' 'extremity;' see ch. 47.2,21. 19:9 be (c-18) The force is, 'again and again.' see ch. 31.15. 19:14 married (d-12) Or 'were to marry;' lit. 'the takers of.' 19:15 present, (e-21) Lit. 'are found.' iniquity (f-27) Or 'punishment.' See Zech. 14.19. 19:17 plain. (g-29) See ch. 13.10. 19:19 goodness, (h-16) Chesed. see 2 Chron. 6.42. 19:22 Zoar. (a-22) Small. 19:37 Moab. (b-11) From the father. 19:38 Ben-ammi; (c-13) Son of my people.
