Genesis 48

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. 2.4.48:4 company (b-22) As ch. 28.3. 48:5 before (a-16) Lit. 'until.' 48:6 begotten (b-7) Or 'shalt beget.' 48:16 land! (c-41) Or 'earth.' see Note 1 Sam. 2.8 and Matt. 5.5. 48:22 tract (d-8) Heb. Shechem. as ch. 33.18.
