Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- A term applied to certain passages in the Pentateuch, in which God is always spoken of in the Hebrew text as Elohim, supposed by some to have been written at an earlier period than those passages in which he is spoken of as Jehovah. The Elohistic paragraphs are simpler, more pastoral, and more primitive in their character than the Jehovistic. Gen. i. 27 is Elohistic; Gen. ii. 21-24 is Jehovistic.
GNU Webster's 1913
- adj. Relating to Elohim as a name of God; -- said of passages in the Old Testament.
