Essentially the Almighty, though the word is never so
El is Elohim in all His strength and power. It is rendered "God" as Elohim is, but El is God the Omnipotent.
El is the God who knows all and sees all, and that performeth all things for His people.
He Who is to be worshipped. Emphasis with His Will rather than His power.
The first occurrence associates this name with worship. Hence it is the title used whenever the contrast is with false gods or idols. Eloah is essentially "the living God" in contrast to inanimate idols.
First occurs in Genesis 14:18 with El, and is rendered "the most high."
It is Elyon as possessor of the earth, Who divides the nations
He is "over all the earth."
He is the dispenser of God's blessings in the earth; the blessings proceeding from a Priest Who is a King upon His throne.
This is God (El), not as the source of strength, but of Grace.
Shaddai is the All-bountiful.
This title does not refer to His creative power, but to His power to
supply all the needs of His people.
It's first occurrence is in Genesis 17:1 and is used to show Abraham that He who called him out to walk alone before Him could supply all his need.
It is always used in connection with El.
They all denote Sovereign headship in various aspects. They have to do with God as "over-lord."
|ADON||The Lord as Ruler||The Lord as Ruler in the earth.|
|ADONAI||The Lord as Owner||The Lord in His relation to the earth.
As carrying out His purposes of blessing. In this, it is almost equivalent to Jehovah. Indeed, it was from an early date so used, by associating the vowel points of the word Jehovah with Adon, thus converting Adon into Adonai.
|ADONIM||The Lord as Blesser||The plural of Adon, and never used of
Adonim carries with it all that Adon does, but in a greater and higher degree; and more especially as Owner and Proprietor.
An Adon may rule others who do not belong to him, hence, without the article, it is often used of men.
But Adonim is the Lord Who rules His own.
It is never used of men.
