  ELOHIST (Jewish Encyclopedia) - BibleWiki
This theory was adopted by Hupfeld ("Die Quellen der Genesis," 1853), whose acceptance of "Elohist" as a recognized term was followed by almost all subsequent writers on the Hexateuch from the critical point of view, though the connotation of the term was not definitely fixed at first.
Reuss, Wilhelm Vatke, and J. George), Julius Wellhausen and Kuenen, the symbol E (Elohist) has come to designate certain historical portions of the Hexateuch, while the so-called "Grundschrift is referred to by the symbol P (Priestly Code).
It is a moot point whether E originally contained the story of Creation; but it seems certain that a goodly portion of the Elohistic patriarchal history has been lost, the first large section from E being Gen. xx., which clearly supposes some preceding account of Abraham's career.

  Passover - LoveToKnow 1911
Thus in the Elohist and in Deuteronomy the date of the festival is only vaguely stated to be in the month of Abib, while in the Holiness Code and in the Priestly History the exact date is given.
It may be observed however that the absence of a definite date in Deuteronomy must be accidental, since a common pilgrimage feast must be on a fixed day, and the reference to the seven weeks elapsing between Passover and Pentecost also implies the fixing of the date.
Reverting to the origin and the meaning of the feast, modern criticism draws attention to the different nature of the two observances combined with the name Passover, the pastoral sacrifice of the paschal lamb and the agricultural observance of a seven days' abstention from unleavened bread.

The Elohist (E) is one of the sources of the Torah postulated by the documentary hypothesis.
Likewise, the Elohist describes Jacob actually wrestling with God, and the tale of Balaam and his divinely talking donkey, although this is often considered a tale that was accidentally added to the manuscript, as it appears quite unconnected to the rest of the work.
To the Elohist, the threat of the passover is enough to cause the Egyptians to chase the Israelites out, whereas the Jahwist presents the Egyptians as reluctantly giving in, and then changing their mind, and chasing after them to bring them back.

 Adelphiasophism: Fall and Atonement - God or Goddess?
The Elohist tells us man was created in the image of God but in the Yahwistic version only by eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge does the man become like the gods.
The Elohist says God gave man fruit and herbs to live on but the Yahwist says man at first had fruit and after being cursed for eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge was he made to eat the herb of the field.
The purpose of the story for the Elohist is to provide a divine basis for the sabbath day but the purpose of the yahwist is to provide a basis for the sinfulness of mankind.

 Documentary Hypothesis of the Pentateuch, CARM
One of, if not the earliest, appearances of this type of approach to Scripture was by H.B. Witter in the early 1700s, who asserted that there were two parallel accounts in the creation story that were distinguishable by the word usage in the text.
What this analysis entails is the assumption that where the word Jehovah appears in large quantities in a section of writing, it is the result of an author who used the word "Jehovah" or the tetragramatton YHWH predominantly.
The priestly legislation in the Elohist document was largely the work of Ezra and is referred to as the Priestly Document.

The Elohist account is similar, Moses goes up mountain...is told laws which he WRITES DOWN on paper/papyrus...comes down mountain...the Israelites ratify laws.

The purpose of the Elohist is to provide a divine basis for the measurement of time in six days and the sabbath day constituting a week, but the purpose of the Yahwist is to provide a basis for the sinfulness of mankind.
The Elohist speaks of “the Elohim” now meaning gods existing as separate sexes like humans, but the Yahwist suggests that YHWH is a solitary male.
The Elohist has Elohim coming to the earth to lust after human women and have sexual relations with them, as classical gods do, but the Yahwist has God coming to earth to mould man and breathe life into him and to make other creatures.

 The Legends of Genesis: V. Jahvist, Elohist, Jehovist, the Later Collections
The collection of the legends in writing was not done by one hand or at one period, but in the course of a very long process by several or many hands.
We distinguish two stages in this process: the older, to which we owe the collections of the Jahvist designated by 'J' and the Elohist designated by 'E', and then a later, thorough revision in what is known as the Priestly Codex 'P'.
Previous writers have in large measure treated J and E as personal authors, assuming as a matter of course that their writings, constitute, at least to some extent, units and originate in all essential features with their respective writers, and attempting to derive from the various data of these writings consistent pictures of their authors.

 Extract from Deconstructing Early Israel: A New Hermeneutic
We must also recognize that the Elohist is expressing in a form of syncretism that sought to combine the Hebrew concept of Yahweh Sabaoth, the Israelite concept of El as the god of the fathers, and Moses' Egyptian concept of divine ontology.
The Priestly Writer was well aware on the Elohist's syncretistic intention and brilliantly reproduced it in his pithy, poetic couplet that strikes one as another example of Levitical catechism: And Elohim spoke to Moses and said, "I am Yahweh.
Taking his cue from the Elohist, the Priestly Writer perpetuated a brilliant synthesis that eventually led to the ascendancy of monotheism within exilic and post-exilic theological thought by overcoming the polytheism that was inherent in the acknowledgement of the historic and separate identities of El and Yahweh.

 Bible Study for Atheists: Exodus 33
The Elohist bit mainly concerns the "Tent of Meeting"; notice how it is OUTSIDE the camp, while the Priestly Source's tabernacle (mentioned in earlier chapters) is INSIDE the camp.
Often, Jahwist is referred to as J, Elohist as E, Priestly source as P, Holiness Code (which is almost entirely part of Leviticus) as H. The combination of Jahwist and Elohist is referred to as JE.
The Elohist was written in early 8th century Israel - and has a particular emphasis on the Israeli tribes, traditions, and views; the Jahwist was written in late 9th century Judah - and has a particular emphasis on the Judah tribe(s), traditions, and views.

If any solid ground for judgment can be arrived at from the study, it is that some elementary precepts of law existed from earliest times in Israel, as everywhere, and were not unnaturally attributed to the traditional "lawgiver" Moses.
As the decalogue is for the most part reported in the same language in the two usually recognized versions, I shall call attention only to the points of material difference in their texts, and then consider the third version.
The first verse of the Elohist version begins: "And Elohim spake all these words, saying"; then follow the reputed "ten words"; and this is the first law recorded in the Book of Exodus, except as to the passover and slavery in chapter xii.

 Reading the Old Testament
The Elohist (E) The Elohist epic was composed in the north, in Israel after the split of the empire, during the early part of the 9th century (900-850).
It is difficult to characterize the Elohist because of its fragmentary state, but it appears that the Elohist placed special emphasis on early Israel as a religiously and ethically obligated community in covenant with God.
The Elohist epic was a conscious corrective to J. The Elohist draws moral conclusions and admonishes readers, often with a preaching attitude: the danger of apostasy is exposed and a call to repentance and obedience is made.

The Elohist is also distinct from the Yahwist in generally avoiding the presentation of God as being like a human person and treating him instead as a more remote, less directly accessible being.
The P material is to be found not merely in Leviticus but throughout the Tetrateuch, including the early chapters of Genesis and one of the creation accounts and ranging from the primeval history (Adam to Noah) to the Mosaic era.
Like the Elohist, P uses the term Elohim for God until the self-naming of God to Moses (Exodus, chapter 3, in the P strand) and shows a non-anthropomorphic transcendent stress.

There are generally recognized to be two, but, as we shall see, there are actually three, versions of the "ten commandments"; and the giving of the "law" is quite variously reported by the Elohist and Jahvist scribes.

The first verse of the Elohist version begins: "And Elohim spake all these words, saying"; then follow the reputed "ten words"; and this is the first law recorded in the Book of Exodus, except as to the Passover and slavery in chapter 12.
