Research ~~- On The Sacred Name of YHVH and Yahshua

WHO is Elohim?

The word "Elohim" is the plural form of the word "Eloha",
usually translated "God" in English (and "Díos" in Español.)

Linguistically "Elohim" comes from the word "El" ('L') which means mighty.
(The letter "L" is said to be a pictograph for the horn, signifying generative power, that which gives the seed of life.)

Elohim is a proper, and beautiful replacement for the term 'god.'
Often people prefer to say "Elohim" because, surprisingly, 'God' (Gawd/Gaad) in Hebrew means the opposite of what 'god' means in English.

Strong's concordance lists the following information on Elohim:
430 'elohiym el-o-heem' plural of 433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme "God" (YHWH); occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:--angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty. see Hebrew for 0433

433
433 'elowahh el-o'-ah; rarely (shortened) eloahh {el-o'-ah probably prolonged (emphat.) from 410; a deity or the Deity:--God, god. See 430. see Hebrew for 0410 see Hebrew for 0430

410 'el ale shortened from 352; strength; as adjective, mighty; especially the Almighty YHWH (but used also of any deity):--God (god), X goodly, X great, idol, might(-y one), power, strong. Compare names in "-el." see Hebrew for 0352



Someone said, and I have not verified this:
The word 'Elohim' in ancient Egyptian literally means "EL- IS MIGHTY."
EL is the head god in the Egyptian pantheon.
El is in the Egyptian's mind comparable to Yahweh in abilities and attributes.
Egyptians also use "EL-SHADDAI" and "ELOHE" as titles for EL.
