Colossians 3:12

Good News Translation (GNT)

12 You are the people of ‘God’ [ha-‘Elohiym: the-Magistrate, the-Mighty-ones, the-Angels, etc..); ‘he’ [ha-‘Iysh: the-Husband, the-Steward, etc..]  loved you and chose you for ‘his’ [ha-ga’al’s: the-redeemer’s, the-deliverer’s] own. So then, you must clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.”

The way, the life, in YH’shua!

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].

Him /He: 376 ‘iysh eesh contracted for 582 (or perhaps rather from an unused root meaning to be extant); a man as an individual or a male person; often used as an adjunct to a more definite term (and in such cases frequently not expressed in translation):–also, another, any (man), a certain, + champion, consent, each, every (one), fellow, (foot-,husband-)man, (good-, great, mighty) man, he, high (degree), him (that is), husband, man(-kind), + none, one, people, person, + steward, what (man) soever, whoso(-ever), worthy. Compare 802.

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.
