1 Samuel 7:3-4

New King James Version (NKJV)

Then Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, “If you return to ‘the Lord’ [ha-YHWH: the-Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym] with all your hearts, then put away the foreign ‘gods’ [‘elowahh: deities, etc.] and the Ashtoreths[a]’ [Exists as helper, wife, sister of Baal (represents false doctrines /opposition of YHWH), a fertility and war g-dess (eloah), etc..] from among you, and prepare your hearts for ‘the Lord’ [ha-YHWH: the-Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym], and serve ‘Him’ [ha-‘Iysh: the-Steward, the-Worthy, etc..] only; and ‘He’ [ha-‘Iysh: the-Steward, the-Worthy, etc..] will deliver you from the hand of the Philistines.” So the children of Israel put away the Baals and the [b]Ashtoreths, and served ‘the Lord’ [ha-YHWH: the-Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym], and serve ‘Him’ [ha-Ga’al: the-Redeemer, the-Deliverer, etc..] only.”

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

He /Him: 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.

G-d(s): 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; 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].

Deity(ies): 433 ‘elowahh el-o’-ah; rarely (shortened) >eloahh {el-o’-ah probably prolonged (emphat.) from 410; a deity or the Deity:–God, god. See 430.

L-rd (origins): A term that replaces YHWH, the Name of Israel’s ‘Elohiym, ~7000 times in the Judeo-Christian Scriptures. It generally refers to an authority, head of household, master, etc.; In Bible, BAAL is mentioned as the nemesis of YHWH; BAAL: See more at bottom.

YHWH (YH): “Modern scholars generally agree that YHWH is derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”,[3] an archaic form of which is הוה (h-w-h),[4] with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”. They connect it to [eg.] Exodus 3:14, [ETC..] where the divinity [‘Elohiym of Israel] who spoke with Moses responds to a question about his name by declaring: אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh asher ehyeh), “I am that I am” or “I will be what I will be”[5](in Biblical Hebrew the form of the verb here is not associated with any particular English tense).[6][7][8]
