Genesis 21

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. 2.4.21:3 Isaac. (b-19) See ch. 17.19. 21:6 with (c-14) Or 'on account of.' 21:23 not (a-12) Lit. 'If thou shalt,' a strong Hebrew expression meaning 'Thou shalt not.' 21:31 Beer-sheba, (b-6) Well of the oath, or seven. see ch. 26.33. 21:33 tamarisk (a-5) Or 'a grove.' *God. (b-18) El Olam see Isa. 40.28; Dan. 12.7; Mic. 5.2.
