The Divine Names in Genesis


Hodder and Stoughton 1914

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Originally a series of articles featured in the Expositor, John Skinner’s The Divine Names in Genesis is an examination of the names Elohim and Yahweh in the Old Testament, highlighting the differences of their use in the Masoretic Text and the Septuagint translations. Skinner’s thorough analysis is still widely cited as a strong argument for using the Hebrew text over the Greek as the basis for translations of the Old Testament for use in the Bible.
