Genesis 35

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. 2.4.35:7 El-beth-el; (a-11) *God of the house of *God. 35:8 Allon-bachuth. (b-22) Oak of weeping. 35:10 Israel (c-19) See ch. 32.28. 35:11 *God. (d-10) El-Shaddai. See ch 17.1. company (e-19) Or 'multitude' or 'assembly.' 35:14 up (f-4) Same Heb. word as 'standing' in ch. 18.2. 35:18 Benoni; (g-21) Son of my affliction. Benjamin. (h-27) Son of the right hand. 35:21 Migdal-Eder. (i-13) Tower of flocks. See Mic. 4.8.
