Genesis 25

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. 2.4.25:15 Hadad (a-1) Or 'Hadar.' 25:18 settled (b-19) Or 'died.' Lit. 'fell;' and see ch. 16.12. 25:20 Syrian (c-18) Or 'Aramean.' so always. 25:23 peoples (a-14) Leummim; see Ps. 2.2. 25:25 Esau. (b-19) Covered with hair. 25:26 Jacob. (c-21) Heel-holder, or supplanter. 25:28 taste; (d-10) Lit. 'in his mouth.' 25:30 Edom. (e-28) Red. 25:31 now (f-6) Or, 'first.' 25:33 now. (f-7) Or, 'first.'
