Ecclesiastes 12:13

Good News Translation (GNT)

13 After all this, there is only one thing to say: Have reverence for ‘God’ [ha-‘Elohiym: the Magistrates, the-Great(ones), the-Angels, etc..], and obey ‘his’ [ha-Ga’al’s: the-Redeemer’s, the-Deliverer’s, etc..] commands, because this is all that we were created for”

A king – speaking words of wisdom, let it be, let it be!

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

G-d: 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’ [‘Elohiym]; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:–angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great[ones], judges, X mighty[ones].

His: 1350 ga’al gaw-al’ a primitive root, to redeem (according to the Oriental law of kinship), i.e. to be the next of kin (and as such to buy back a relative’s property, marry his widow, etc.):–X in any wise, X at all, avenger, deliver[-er], (do, perform the part of near, next) kinsfolk(-man), purchase, ransom, redeem(-er), revenger.
