Names of God – El Elyon

FRIDAY

Today’s name of God is El Elyon meaning God the Most High. God’s name is found in this form 7 times but another 19 times as only Elyon. Most intriguing is the compound of YHWH Elyon found in Psalm 47:2 and Psalm 97:9. Elyon pictures God as the strong sovereign over creation.

NAU Genesis 14:18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; now he was a priest of God Most High.

NIV Genesis 14:18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High,

KJV Genesis 14:18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.


NAU Psalm 57:2 I will cry to God Most High, To God who accomplishes all things for me.

NIV Psalm 57:2 I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills his purpose for me.

KJV Psalm 57:2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
