Genesis 9

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. 2.4.9:4 life, (c-6) Or 'soul,' and similarly ver. 5. 9:13 set (d-2) Or 'have set.' 9:15 I (e-2) Or '... earth, and the bow ... cloud, that I.' 9:20 husbandman, (a-7) Lit. 'man of the ground.' 9:26 his (b-15) Or 'their,' i.e. Shem's. 9:27 Japheth, (c-4) See ch. 5.32. his (d-18) Or 'their,' i.e. Japheth's.
