singular - EL - is a very ancient word with a long, etymological
history; and a common origin with many other ancient words in
other languages, all with a common significant meaning. The
Sumerian EL meant 'brightness' or 'shining'; the Akkadian ILU
meant 'the bright one'; the Babylonian ELLU meant 'the shining
one'; the Old Welsh ELLYL meant 'a shining being'; the Old Irish
AILLIL meant 'shining'; the English ELF means 'a shining being'
- from the Anglo-Saxon AELF; the Old Cornish EL meant 'an angel'.
All these terms indicate SHINING or BRIGHTNESS; and, consequently,
it is our thesis that the Hebrew EL needs to be translated,
in the first place, not as 'God" but as THE SHINING ONE.
And the plural ELOHIM, a contraction of HA ELOHIM, responsible
for so much activity in the early part of Genesis, requires
translation as THE SHINING ONES. If we apply this translation,
the four quintessential quotations become:
In the Beginning, the Shining Ones created the heavens and
Shining Ones said, "Let us make man in our image, in the
likeness of ourselves. . :"
(The Leader of) the Shining Ones planted a Garden in Eden which
is in the east. .
walked with the Shining Ones. Then he disappeared because the
Shining Ones took him away
