Chapter17.

1" Almighty God" (Heb. El Shaddai.)
(1) The etymological signification of Almighty God (EI Shaddai) is both in-teresting and touching. God (EI) signifies the "Strong One" (Gen. 1.1, note). The qualifying word Shaddai is formed from the Hebrew word "shad," the breast, invariably used in Scripture for a woman's breast; e.g. Gen. 49. 25; Job 3. 12; : Psa. 22. 9; Song 1. 13; 4. 5; 7.3, 7, 8; 8.1, 8, 10; Isa. 28.9; Ezk. 16.7. Shaddai therefore means primarily "the breasted." God is "Shaddai," because He is the Nourisher, the Strength-giver, and so, in a secondary sense, the Satisfier, who pours Himself into believing lives. As a fretful, unsatisfied babe is not only strengthened and nourished from the mother's breast, but also is quieted, rested, satisfied, so EI Shaddai is that name of God which sets Him forth as the Strength- giver and Satisfier of His people. It is on every account to be regretted that "Shad-dai" was translated "Almighty." The primary name EI or Elohim sufficiently signifies almightiness. "All-sufficient" would far better express both the Hebrew meaning and the characteristic use of the name in Scripture.
(2) Almighty God {El Shaddai) not only enriches, but makes fruitful. This is nowhere better illustrated than in the first occurrence of the name (Gen. 17. 1-8). To a man ninety-nine years of age, and ''as good as dead" (Heb. 11. 12), He said: "I am the Almighty God [EI Shaddai] . . . I will . . . multiply thee ex- ceedingly." To the same purport is the use of the name in Gen. 28. 3, 4.
(3) As Giver of fruitfulness, Almighty God (El Shaddai} chastens His people. For the moral connection of chastening with fruit-bearing, see John 15. 2; Heb. 12. 10; Ruth 1. 20. Hence, Almighty is the characteristic name of God in Job, occurring thirty-one times in that book. The hand of EI Shaddai falls upon Job, the best man of his time, not in judgment, but in purifying unto greater fruitful- ness (Job 5. 17-25). See, for other names of Deity: Gen. 1. 1, note,. 2. 4. note;
2. 7; 14 18. note,. 15. 2. note,. 21.33. note,. 1 Sam. 1.3. note.

GENESIS
The revelation of God as El Shaddai, Almighty God.


AND when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou per-fect.

2.

And.I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will mul-tiply thee exceedingly.

3.

And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,

Abram becomes Abraham.


4.

As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee. and thou shalt be a father of many nations.

5.

Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

The Abrahamic Covenant con-firmed and made everlasting.


6.

8.

And I will make thee exceeding fruitful. and I will make nations of thee. and kings shall come out of thee.
And I will establish my cove-nant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee. and to thy seed after thee.
And I will give unto thee. and to thy seed after thee, the land where-in thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan. for an everlasting pos-session; and I will be their God.

Circumcision established as the sign of the Abraharnic Cove- nant.

And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant there- fore. thou. and thy seed after thee in their generations.
This is my covenant, which ye shall keep. between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man

child among you shall be circum-cised.
And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a a token of the covenant betwixt me and you
And he that is
eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your genera-tions. he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
He that is born in thy house
, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah
shall her name be.
And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.
Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?
And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!
And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and; thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

Ishmael to be a nation.

And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.
But my covenant will I estab-lish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.
And he left off talking with him. and God went up from
Abra-ham.
And Abraham took Ishmael . his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's house; and circumcised the flesh of their fore- skin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.
And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his fore-skin.
And Ishmael his son was thir-teen years old, when he was circum-cised in the flesh of his foreskin.
In the selfsame day was Abra-ham circumcised, and Ishmael his son.
And all the men of his house, :born in the house, and bought with money of the stranger, were circum-cised with him.

Verse

" And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.
And the patriarchs, moved with envy sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him,
And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him gov-ernor over Egypt and all his house."

The Zed Aliz Zed and far yonder scribe then uncircumscribed circumcised
