Genesis 26

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. 2.4.26:4 themselves (g-34) Or 'be blessed,' see ch. 22.18. 26:8 time, (h-12) Lit. 'when the days there were prolonged to him.' 26:12 received (a-8) Lit. 'found.' 26:15 earth. (b-26) Lit. 'dust.' 26:17 valley (c-11) Elsewhere 'torrent;' it is a valley in which a torrent runs. see ch. 32.23. 26:19 springing (d-14) Lit.'living.' 26:20 Esek, (e-23) Quarrel. 26:21 Sitnah. (f-19) Opposition. 26:22 Rehoboth, (g-23) Broadways. 26:28 oath (h-20) As ch. 24.41. 26:29 that (i-1) Lit. 'if.' see ch. 21.23. 26:33 Shebah; (a-5) Oath. 26:34 wives (b-11) Lit. 'wife.' 26:35 mind (c-7) Lit. 'bitterness of spirit.'
