Dear members,
It's interesting to me that Elohim has a singular meaning in most of Genesis 1, but in Genesis 1:26 is used with a plural form of the verb which has the prefix of Nun, N($H. My questions are:
1) Why is Elohim used with a singular meaning in most of Genesis 1 but it has a plural meaning in Genesis 1:26? 
2) Why does the verb RM$ in Genesis 1:26 take the prefix of letter H? What is the meaning of that prefix in combination with the verb? 
Thanks in advance for your answers,
