Translation and Systematic Commentary
Book cover explanation
In calligraphic square script, “Élohîm,” the biblical name of God, characteristic of the “elohist” tradition.
In red, the Arabic version of this divine name (Q 3:26; Q 5:114).
Note the awkwardness of the half Aramaic, half-Hebraic neologism, which interprets the first two Hebraic consonants as though they both function as articles א ל (ʾèl), thus the reduplication of lām.
