Names of God – Part 8

El Gibbor

The Mighty, Mighty God. The word El means God, but also mighty, and Gibbor also means mighty, so we have El Gbbor, the Mighty, Mighty God.

The name, in Isaiah 9:6 is part of a much longer compound name, Pele-joez-el-gibbor-abi-ad-sar-shalom, translated as Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Our God is mightier than mighty, able to save us.
