The Great I Am

Psalm 46:1

International Standard Version (ISV)

To the Director: A song by the Sons of Korah, to the tune of[a] “The Maidens”.

‘God’ [‘Elohiym] is the Refuge of ‘His’ [ha-Ga’al’s: the Redeemer’s, the-Deliver[-er’s], etc..] People

46 ‘God’ [‘Elohiym] is our refuge and strength, a great help in times of distress.”

Let-it-be-so, Amein!

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

His: גָּאַל gâʼal, 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.):—× in any wise, × at all, avenger, deliver[-er’s], (do, perform the part of near, next) kinsfolk(-man), purchase, ransom, redeem(-er[‘s]), revenger.

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