Genesis 33

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. 2.4.33:14 cattle (a-26) Strictly 'goods.' see Ex. 22.8,11. 33:17 Succoth. (b-26) Booths, or huts. 33:18 safely (c-4) Or 'to Shalem.' 33:19 portion (d-5) Or 'allotment.' kesitahs. (e-28) Kesitah, a weight of precious metal. Supposed value about four shekels. 33:20 El-Elohe-Israel. (f-11) *God, the *God of Israel.
