Read an Excerpt


Elohim is the general name of God concerned with the creation and preservation of the world, that is, His works. As Jehovah, He is the God of revelation in the expression of Himself in His essential moral and spiritual attributes. But He is especially, as Jehovah, the God of revelation to Israel. To Japheth and his descendants,
He is the Elohim, the transcendent Deity, but to Shem and his descendants, through
Abraham and Isaac, He is Jehovah, the God of revelation. All the nations had their elohim: and even had they retained the true and only Elohim in their knowledge,
He would still have been to them chiefly Elohim. But the Elohim of Israel (when they were not backsliding) was Jehovah, who had especially revealed Himself to them.
Thus the constant cry of the faithful Israelite was, "O Jehovah, thou art our Elohim"
(II Chron. 14:11), "Thou art Elohim alone" (Ps. 86: 10). It is interesting, as one writer points out, to note the change of these two names of the Deity throughout the Old Testament beyond Exodus 6:3. Such universalistic books as Ecclesiastes,
Daniel, Jonah, have Elohim almost exclusively. On the other hand, the strong theocratic and historical books relating to Israel, such as Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings have chiefly Jehovah. The same is true of the Psalms, which may be divided on this basis into two parts. Psalms 42 to 84 almost exclusively use Elohim and other compound names of God; while the other psalms use chiefly Jehovah. It is not merely a matter of difference of authors, for psalms in both sections are ascribed to David. It is rather a difference of purpose.Thus to Israel, the medium of the revelation of
Himself through the Word - the written Word - and the medium also of the revelation of Himself in the flesh - the living Word - He is especially Jehovah, the God of revelation, the ever-becoming One. Yes, and "the coming One" too, the One who shall be, to appear for man's redemption: the permanent and unchangeable One, for "I am
Jehovah; I change not"; "the same yesterday, today and forever." And in this revelation of Himself it is never "thus saith God" or Elohim, but always "thus saith the Lord"
or Jehovah.

    Excellent..A must read

    One of the best books I have read and studied in a long time. Understanding the Names of God, their meaning, and the inspired timing of their introduction in scripture, truly enhances our understanding of our Loving God Jehavoh.
