{Genesis 21:33} And [Abraham] planted 5193 z8799 a grove 815 in Beersheba, 884 and called 7121 z8799 there x8033 on the name 8034 of the LORD, 3068 the everlasting 5769 God. 410
grove:
or, tree, "They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again." {Ams 8:14}; The original word eshel, has been variously translated a grove, a plantation, an orchard, a cultivated field, and an oak; but it may denote a kind of tamarisk, as it is rendered by Gesenius, the same with the Arabic athl.
Beersheba:
"Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make thee." {Deu 16:21} + "And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and the groves." {Jdg 3:7}
called:
"And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD." {Gen 4:26} + "And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, [having] Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD." {Gen 12:8} + "And he went up from thence to Beersheba." {Gen 26:23} + "And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the LORD, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants digged a well." {Gen 26:25} + "And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city [is] Beersheba unto this day." {Gen 26:33}
on the name:
Dr. Shuckford justly contends, that the expression rendered, "he called on the name," signifies "he invoked in the name."
everlasting:
"The eternal God [is thy] refuge, and underneath [are] the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy [them]." {Deu 33:27} + "Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God." {Psa 90:2} + "Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, [that] the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? [there is] no searching of his understanding." {Isa 40:28} + "For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name [is] Holy; I dwell in the high and holy [place], with him also [that is] of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones." {Isa 57:15} + "But the LORD [is] the true God, he [is] the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation." {Jer 10:10} + "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" {Rom 1:20} + "But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:" {Rom 16:26} + "Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, [be] honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen." {1Tm 1:17}
