Shaddai, or El Shaddai, is a name of God that is especially frequent in Genesis (17:1; 28:3; 35:11; 43:14; 48:3) and in poetry (e.g., Genesis 49:25; Numbers 24:4, 16; and frequently in Job), and according to Exodus 6:3 it is the name by which YHWH revealed himself to the patriarchs. Often rendered “Almighty,” its meaning is uncertain; one modern suggestion, based on Akkadian shadû, “mountain,” takes it to mean “the One of the Mountain.”
