'elohiym Hebrew: (אֱלֹהִים m. "God" Dan 11:38;Hab 1:11) is a word that expresses concepts of divinity. It consists of the Hebrew word Eloah (Hebrew: אֱלוֹהַּ 'elowahh "God") with a plural suffix. Elohim is the third word in the Hebrew text of Genesis and occurs frequently throughout the Hebrew Bible. The most commonly accepted root of this source among Jewish scholars is that the word literally translates to "powers" meaning God is the One in control of these powers.
39 know therefore today, and lay it to your heart, that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath; there is no other. Deut. 4:39 ESV

Bereshit bara Elohim et hashamayim ve'et ha'arets (Genesis 1:1, Jewish Transliterated text)

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1, English Text)
