Psalms 1051a.) In the Bible there are many different names given to the One True God. The most frequently used names are YHWH, usually rendered as Yahweh (ca. 6,800 times); Elohim (ca. 2,600 times); Adonai (ca. 439 times); and El (ca. 238 times). Most of the other names are combinations of these names like El Shaddai, El Eloah, and Yahweh Elohim. The divine name El Shaddai occurs 48 times in the Bible. Out of the 48 occurrences it appears 42 times in the patriarchal period 9 times in the Torah, 2 times in Ruth and 31 times in Job. It occurs only 6 times outside of this period 4 times in the prophets and 2. Included is a link to the scripture verse where the first mention of that name of God occurs along with how many times that name is mentioned throughout the Bible. Elohim (God) First seen in Genesis 11 Used 2599 times in the Bible. In the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (1961, 1984, 2013) published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, Jehovah appears 7,199 times in the 1961 edition, 7,210 times in the 1984 revision and 7,216 times in the 2013 revision, comprising 6,979 instances in the Old Testament, and 237 in the New. The Bible teaches emphatically that there is but one God, but the Bible also teaches that the unity of God involves plurality. Thus in describing the nature of God, we speak of a plural . The Hebrew word ELOHIM is a PLURAL word. Many times it is used in the Bible to describe gods (false gods) "Thou shalt have no other , 203).
