Genesis 22

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. 2.4.22:1 tried (c-11) Or 'tested.' 22:5 worship, (d-23) Lit. 'bow down.' so always. come (e-25) Lit. 'we will come.' See Heb. 11.19. 22:8 sheep (f-12) See Note, Ex. 12.3. 22:14 Jehovah-jireh; (g-9) Jehovah will provide. 22:16 saith (h-7) The Hebrew word introduces an oracular discourse; cf. Num. 24.3,4,15,16. As 'He hath said,' Jer. 23.31. 22:18 themselves, (i-13) Or 'shall be blessed.' so ch. 26.4.
