  •  There is nothing monotheistic about the Penteteuch (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    The deities used as Toponyms are often given names that are feminine plural such as the sacred groves or Teraphim, the tall straight cedar or oak trees suitable for masts or the pillars of a temple viewed as consorts to male gods who epitomized power by having for example the strength to make the tall trees sway; In Exodus Elim and Elat plus Pi Ha Haroth in the chain of Aphrodite have sacred groves of palm trees . In Genesis, the story of Abraham and Sarah lists covenants with El Shaddai (Samsi Adada of Mari, the lord of the land); Yahwah (the power of the air), El Roi (Hagars spirit of the well - the power of water), and Moloch,( the power of fire).
