El Roi

EL ROI ĕl rō’ ī (אֵ֣ל רֳאִ֑י; MT is defectively pointed ’ēl ro). The name used for God in Genesis 16:13 by Hagar whose protection she experienced when fleeing from Sarai. An ambiguous phrase in Heb., “El Roi” has been rendered in two main ways: (1) “God who sees me” (cf. KJV, Gr., Vul.) and (2) “God of seeing” (RSV). Also favoring the latter interpretation is the Jerusalem Bible, and NEB using the title “El Roi” with “God of (a) Vision” in the footnote explanation.
