English: Elohim ("God"; literally plural "Gods" - but the Hebrew context verse always conjugates it as a singular word; ie. One God embraces Plural Creation) is a Name of God in the Torah and Hebrew Bible. The first account of Creation in Genesis (Chapter 1) uses Elohim, the second (Chapter 2) uses Tetragrammaton-Elohim together. In Judaism, Elohim represents the concealed Divine immanent power within Creation.
Hebrew divine name used in the Tanakh, morphologically plural (with -im suffix); sometimes treated as singular refer to the One God, but at other times treated as plural to refer to other deities or spirits
