Genesis 29

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. 2.4.29:1 journey, (c-5) Lit. 'lifted up his feet.' 29:6 well? (d-8) Lit. 'Has he peace?' well; (e-14) Lit. 'Peace.' 29:7 high (f-8) Lit. 'great.' 29:14 time. (a-21) Lit. 'a month of days.' 29:16 Leah, (b-12) Weariness. Rachel. (c-19) Ewe. 29:30 him (d-20) Or 'served him.' 29:32 Reuben; (e-12) See! a son. 29:33 Simeon. (f-32) Hearing. 29:34 Levi. (g-33) United. 29:35 Judah. (h-22) Praise.
