    To Martha on 1 Jn. 5-7 I appreciated your support of the Word of God. Just pray for those on here, as you would others only God can reach them. They love to debate that's why they are on here.

    Gen. 1 - To Bruce; Apology/clarification - I didn't read your message about 'Elohiym' right; I must have confused you - and I am sorry for that.
  • Bruce
    Irene: I assumed with your Bible study and you wouldn't need an explanation. Elohiym is a Name of God pronounced El-o-heem. It is plural meaning more than One. Like:we,us,our,them---In the beginning Elohiym created the Heaven and the Earth. Elohiym said,let Us make man in Our Image,after Our likeness. / There are Three in Heaven--- . There are different spellings for Elohiym for different meaning.
  • Irene123
    The word Elohim isn't - Eloheem ............
  • A disciple
    Hi Irene; Translating the Bible from the original tongues into other languages has always been a challenge just by its nature. The Hebrew word which is translated into the English, GOD; is El-o-heem, which is in the plural form; and depending on the context can mean gods or mighties or angels. The King James Version is indeed a masterpiece; and I love mine; but it is not the original language.
  • Bruce
    Irene:Genesis 1:1 in the beginning Elohiym created the heaven and the earth/ in the beginning God,in Hebrew that is Elohiym the plural of God, in the beginning ------- created The Heaven and Earth. V:26 let "us"make man in "our" image after "our" likeness:---. (el-o-heem)
