Can someone point me to a list of all places in Tanach where the tetragrammaton is pronounced as "Elokim" (as in, e.g., Yechezkel 28:25)? For some reason, my concordance does not list these under either the "Elokim" or tetragrammaton entries.

  • JSYK, these names aren’t actually Elokim. That’s just our tradition of how to pronounce them.

  • Tehillim 68:21, 69:7, 71:5, 71:16, 73:28, 109:21, 140:8, 141:8

I believe the word only appears in this Name pair, or the opposite order. Even if it doesn’t, it’s so sparingly that this should give you the overwhelming majority. Many of these have multiple occurrences within the verse. In total, that adds up to about 300 pesukim, over 200 of which are in Yechezkel alone.

  • It also shows up as יהוה אדני in the other order. Does your search catch those?

  • @DoubleAA It does, since Sefaria’s search engine breaks on Tanach if I do exact search. So it will flag a passuk if both words appear in it, regardless of the order or if they’re even next to each other. I only saw one such passuk, but if you catch others that I missed, feel free to edit them in.

  • Thank you very much for this! But actually I was exactly curious whether this ever happens OTHER than in this name pair (or its opposite).

  • @user6584 I’m not sure where you’re saying that in your question. You just ask where this word appears, not where it appears alone. I’m tempted to say that it doesn’t appear alone.

  • I am looking for all places where this word appears. The list you provided includes all places where it appears as a name pair. I am trying to understand if there are other places where it does not appear as a name pair.
