Topic: Eloah


  
  The Hebrew Name for God - Eloah
The word Eloah is the singular (or dual) of Elohim and appears more than 70 times in the Tanakh, primarily in more poetic passages.
It is generally thought that the same divine name is found in Arabic (Ilah as singular "a god", as opposed to Allah meaning "The God" or "God") and in Aramaic (Elah).
Interestingly, the term Eloah, used for God, is predominantly used in Job by Job and Eliphaz in their debating.

  Elohim - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is apparently related to the Hebrew word ēl, though morphologically it consists of the Hebrew word Eloah (אלוה) with a plural suffix.
The pronounced [h] (or he mappiq) of Eloah never alternates with a [t] consonant sound (the way that silent feminine "h" does), and the [a] "furtivum" element in Eloah is actually a late feature of masoretic pronunciation traditions, which wouldn't have existed in the pronunciation of Biblical times.
The meaning of Elohim is further complicated by the fact that it is used to describe the spirit of the dead prophet Samuel, raised by Saul in 1 Samuel 28:13.

 Elohim - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Others relate the word (and Eloah, "a god") to alah ("to terrify") or alih ("to be perplexed, afraid; to seek refuge because of fear").
Eloah and Elohim, therefore, would be "He who is the object of fear or reverence," or "He with whom one who is afraid takes refuge".
Eloah, might then be used to differentiate each of the lesser gods from El himself.

Eloah is used only in the instances cited at the end of this section.
Eloah and Elohim are derived from El; and, therefore, signify mighty one and mighty ones respectively.
The plural term Elohim occurs so frequently that it is not practicable to give a list; whenever the word “God” is found in the Authorised Version, and it is not dealt with in one of the lists or sections hereof, it may be taken that the Hebrew is Elohim.

 The Elect as Elohim (No. 1)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The examples of where Eloah (or Elahh) is used in the singular to refer to a concept of a god other than Eloah, are in 2Chronicles 32:15; Daniel 11:37-39; Habakkuk 1:11.
Eloah never has the article although Habakkuk 1:11 determines it by the suffix and it is found once in the construct in Psalm 114:7 (see Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament, Harris ed., Moody, Chicago, 1980, p.
Thus, the Son of Eloah appears to be the Elohi of Israel but is not the object of prayer and sacrifice.

 Elohim   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Others trace the word (and the related singular word Eloah which is also a name for diety in the Bible) to alah ("to terrify") or alih ("to be perplexed, afraid; to seek refuge because of fear").
Originally meaning "the gods", or the "host of heaven", the word may have been singularized by later Hebrew henotheist priests who sought to identify the most powerful Semitic gods with their patron god YHWH.
While the words Elohim, Eloah, and El appear to be related, with the word El being the oldest, it is uncertain whethe the word Elohim is derived from El via Eloah.

Ezra shows that Eloah is the God of the Temple, to whom the house is dedicated (Ezra 6:16-17), and the object of worship there (Ezra 4:24; 5:1-2,5,8,13-16; 6:7-8) at Jerusalem (Ezra 5:17; 6:5).
Eloah is identified as the God of the revelation of Exodus 34:6-7 as we see from its use in Nehemiah 9:17.
The extension of Eloah to Elohim as a plural structure is also reflected in the use of Yahovah (Strongs Hebrew Dictionary (SHD) 3068) and Yahovih (SHD 3069).

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Elohim
Hence he agrees with Buhl in maintaining that the singular form Eloah came into existence only after the plural form Elohim had been long in common use; in this case, a singular was supplied for its pre-existent plural.
Lagrange, however, maintains that Elohim and Eloah are derived collaterally and independently from El.
The name Elohim is found 2570 times; Eloah, 57 times [41 in Job; 4 in Pss.; 4 in Dan.; 2 in Hab.; 2 in Canticle of Moses (Deuteronomy 32); 1 in Prov., 1 in Is.; 1 in Par.; 1 in Neh.

Eloah is a singular word admitting of no plurality.
Eloah is God the Father from Proverbs 30:4-5 who has a son.
The distinction between the Yahovah of Israel who is called elohim, and his elohim who is called Eloah or God the Most High, The Lord of Hosts, is a distinction that is lost in the English, where there is no other word for God.

 Exposition of Daniel -- 19. - A God of Guardians, or The Latin Prophet of The West
The original is eloah mahuzzim "a god of guardians": and styled in the same connection, eloah naikhar, "a strange god"--a god appearing from among the Jewish sect of the Nazarenes, and therefore a foreign god.
Eloah is a passive participial noun, and applied to Christ in the phrase mashiach eloah limmenu, "the Anointed One cursed for us"; that is, by the Law, which says: Cursed is every one that hangeth upon a tree".
The connection in which eloah is found determines whether it should be taken in a good or in a bad sense.

The object of worship of the tabernacle was Eloah, or Elah (from Young's Concordance).
To assert that Christ is one God with Eloah is logically wrong, except where Christ derives his unity as an Elohim in the same way that other entities derive, or are to derive their nature as part of the Elohim.
We have seen the distinction of Eloah as the singular God or God the Father and the extended God or Elohim, which were a plurality as a Council of Gods.

 Elohim - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Biblical scholars tend to resist making connections with the father god of Ugarit, El, due to the uncertainty of religious links between Canaanite and Israelite religion.
The polytheist theory would also explain why there are three words built on the same stem: El, Elohim, and eloah.
While the words El, Elohim, and eloah are clearly related, with the word El being the stem, it is uncertain whether the word Elohim is derived from El through eloah.

 Elohim - Does This Word Indicate a Plurality of Persons in a Godhead?
Eloah (the singular for Elohim) is used for God in verses such as Nehemiah 9:17.
"Elohim is the plural of Eloah (in Arabic Allah); it is often used in the short form EL (a word signifying strength, as in EL-SHADDAI, God Almighty, the name by which God was specially known to the patriarchs.
This word [elohim], which is generally viewed as the plural of eloah [Strong's #433], is found far more frequently in Scripture than either el or eloah for the true God.

 Goddess of the Bible - Aquarius Metaphysical Newspaper Article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Eloah is the feminine singular counterpart of El, which means God.
Eloah is correctly translated as “Goddess.” In Hebrew, the -oah, -oh or -ah suffix makes a word feminine [comparable to the English suffix -ess, used in such words as waitress and stewardess.]
The word Eloah appears fifty-seven times in the Old Testament, and Shaddai or El Shaddai appears forty-eight times; two-thirds of these are found in the book of Job.
