Genesis 43

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. 2.4.43:11 in (c-20) Lit. 'the celebrity of.' tragacanth (d-40) ladanum, (d-42) See ch. 37.25. 43:12 sacks, (e-21) 'Bag.' same as ch. 42.27,28, Note e; and so vers. 18,21,22,23; and ch. 44.1,2,8,11,12. 43:14 away (f-15) Lit. 'return to you.' 43:16 cattle, (a-25) Lit. 'slaughter a slaughtering.' 43:27 welfare, (b-7) Lit. 'of peace.' well (c-13) Lit. 'has your father peace?'
