A few weeks ago, someone asked the why 'eLoHiM sometimes has the
definite article.  I have not studied this phenomenon, but today I
observed that in its 366 occurrences,  Ha'eLoHiM does not function as
the subject of a finite verb except in the books of Chronicles,
Nehemiah, Ecclesiastes, Daniel, and Jonah (about 30 all together). I
looked at the list very quickly, however, so I may have missed a few

So, what do you think that means.
