One of the names of God, of frequent occurrence in the Bible. It is used both of the true God and of false gods, while Jehovah is used only of the true God. The use of the plural form Elohim has caused much controversy among critics, some regarding it as containing an allusion to the doctrine of the Trinity, while others regard it as the plural of excellence, and others hold it as establishing the fact of a primitive polytheism.
