Genesis 30

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. 2.4.30:6 Dan. (a-25) Judge. 30:8 Naphtali. (b-21) My wrestling. 30:11 Gad. (c-10) Fortune. 30:13 Asher. (d-19) Happy, blessed. 30:18 Issachar. (e-24) There is hire. 30:20 Zebulun. (f-32) Dwelling. 30:21 Dinah. (g-11) Connected in meaning with Dan. 30:24 Joseph; (h-6) He will add. 30:27 discovered (i-20) Lit. 'divined,' or 'forecast.' 30:33 hereafter, (a-8) Lit. 'on the day of to-morrow.' face. (b-17) Or 'for it will come before thee with my wages.' 30:37 maple; (c-11) Or 'plane-tree.'
