Genesis 24

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. 2.4.24:7 nativity, (a-22) Or 'kindred.' as ver. 4. 24:10 Aram-naharaim, (b-32) Syria of the two rivers. 24:13 stand (c-3) Same as word in ch. 18.2. 24:14 hereby (d-50) Or 'by her.' 24:15 Rebecca (e-13) Noose, i.e. captivating. 24:22 ring, (a-18) Nose-ring. see ver. 47; elsewhere also 'earring,' as ch. 35.4. shekel (b-22) Beka, as Ex. 38.26. 24:27 faithfulness (c-19) Lit. 'truth' and so ch. 32.10. 24:33 known (d-21) Lit. 'told.' 24:38 means (e-6) A strong obligation by oath, as Num. 14.28. 24:41 oath, (f-8) An oath with imprecation, as ch. 26.28. 24:43 stand (a-3) Same as ver. 13. 24:48 way (b-24) Lit. 'in a way of truth.' 24:62 from (c-6) Lit. 'came from coming to.' Beer-lahai-roi; (d-7) See ch. 16.14.
