    The third view, and the main focus of this book, is the angelic view. The angelic view postulates that the sons of God were angels, although as previously mentioned they are not necessarily limited to just angels, more on that later. The phrase “sons of God” comes from the Hebrew words “beney elohim” or “beney ha-elohim”. “Beney” simply means “sons”. So what is an elohim? Elohim is often associated as one of the names of God, for instance, “In the beginning God (elohim) created the heavens and the earth.” (Gen 1:1). Elohim is actually the plural of el (or eloah). This plurality of God is where the concept of the Trinity comes from. However, elohim is more of a description than the proper name of God (Yahweh). Elohim can also refer to demons,…

    Psalms 12

    • 870 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Form—Psalms 12 starts as a lament by David crying out for help; summoning Yahweh to intervene (v.1). In v. 1-4 David makes his complaint and reason for the prayer of help (describing the wickedness of all), with an answer after every statement on what the Lord should do to those that commit the action described. Thus, v. 2 is answered, almost in the form of a syntax parallelism, by v.3—the same is true for vs. 4 & 5. v.5b—David induces Yahweh to intervene by stating, “I [Yahweh] will spring into…

    The first one is known as the Elohist (E). E source has a tendency to use the divine name Elohim and has a focus on North, Israel.

    has come about relatively recently. The Bible itself claims that Moses wrote the Bible and the Church has believed this to be true since the beginning.

He believed that the different usage of the names of God Yahweh and Elohim was proof that there were different sources for the authorship of the Pentateuch. Then Julius Wellenhausen expanded upon…

    In the first story the creator is called God, but in the second story the creator is referred to as the LORD God. This is because there were two names for God, Elohim and Yahweh, in the old Testament, to highlight the emphasis the author is trying to make. The name Elohim is a general name for God and is used to help depict God as above all. Elohim in the revised versions of the bible is God. Yahweh is used as a way to depict and reflect on God’s relationship with the people, as Yahweh is His…
