Trivi-EL

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.


In this verse, the Hebrew word for God is ELOHIYM, which is actually a plural word meaning gods. The singular form of this name is EL. Now here's a bit of trivia I think you'll enjoy: In all the following names, the EL suffix is intended to mean of God:
  • IMMANU-EL - with us of God
  • GABRI-EL - strong man of God
  • MICHA-EL - who is of God
  • RAPHA-EL - healed of God
  • DANI-EL - judge of God
  • EZEKI-EL - strength of God
  • ANG-EL - messenger of God
  • ISRA-EL - power of God
  • BAB-EL - gate of God
