Genesis 37

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. 2.4.37:2 fed (c-12) Or 'was tending.' with (d-23) Or 'he was as a youth with.' them. (e-47) Or 'their evil discourse.' 37:3 colours. (f-26) Or 'a coat with sleeves;' and so vers. 23,32. 37:7 standing; (a-17) As ch. 18.2. 37:14 welfare (b-13) welfare (b-20) Lit. 'peace.' 37:19 dreamer! (c-11) Lit. 'master of dreams.' 37:25 tragacanth, (d-29) A kind of gum. ladanum (e-33) An aromatic gum. 37:35 Sheol (a-31) Sheol. the 'hades' of the New Testament. see Ps. 6.5, and Note at Matt. 11.23. 37:36 chamberlain (b-11) See 1 Sam. 8.15. Pharaoh, (c-13) 'Pharaoh,' the title of the Egyptian kings.
