Genesis 45

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. 2.4.45:2 raised (d-3) Lit. 'gave.' 45:5 yourselves, (e-11) Lit. 'let it not be an occasion of anger in your eyes.' 45:6 in (f-9) Lit. 'in the midst of.' 45:16 report (a-3) Lit. 'voice.' 45:18 good (b-18) Or 'the best,' of soil or goods. 45:21 commandment (c-16) Lit. 'mouth.'
