Eil ("איל"): The Most High, Ever-Present Eternal One (HE IS)

The Title (or, "Name") of “Eil”, "איל" is known in some regions of the World as The supreme and greatest name of The Invisible Ever-Present Eternal One ("HE IS"), and most of the time this is specific to Aramaic. Some pronounce it as "ale" (Cp. "Ginger ALE"), or like the "eil" in the word "veil", or "yl", in "Sheryl", "Daryl", and other folks “Eal”; that is, a long “e” followed by “l”. Lexicons note the Pronunciation is: āl, i.e. "Pale Horse".

 Same phonetic pronunciation in the last syllable of the names for Angels, i.e. “Gabriêl” (See Strong’s Hebrew H1403) and some humans (past and present), i.e. “Daniêl” (See Strong’s Hebrew H1840), and places referred to by Proper Name Locations, i.e. “Êl Beth-êl” (Cp. Hebrew Strong’s H0416, Genesis 12:8). Note also Hebrew Strong’s H0410 – ['êl]  “אֵל” \ale\. Cp. proper names like Immanue-'el, etc. "Eil" first appears in Genesis 17:1, and that verse is back-referenced in Exodus 6:3, in the Hebraic writings.

The unique title “Eil” (which can be illustrated with Latin letters, yet, same phonetic pronunciation) is reserved for the Heavenly "Father" Only, and No others, including His Son, even though, there are many other "shêms" (Hebrew: titles/ English: names) used to refer to Him, and “Eil” is essentially "Most High" / "the Highest" (translations of the Synonyms).

If we take the time to study other Semitic languages (Akkadian, Ugaritic, Aramaic, Ethiopic, etc.) along WITH Hebrew, we tend to notice some very interesting similarities. For instance, the Hebraic word “Eil” ("God") is represented by the Akkadian 'IL, and the Arabic Ăl. The Hebrew Eloah is found in the Syriac Aramaic Alaha, the Arabic Allah, and so on. These words are called cognates, and refer to words that share a root. When we study these other languages together, we find that many of them share very similar alphabets as well. 

For instance, Ugaritic has a primary alphabet of 30 characters, but it shares a reduced alphabet of 22 characters in common with most other later Semitic languages. The Hurrian language was actually written in the Ugaritic alphabet (and such was common practice; just as Hebrew is now written in the Aramaic script). Akkadian had close to 20 different letters, but its cuneiform script was written with hundreds of different symbols to represent entire sounds and, in some cases, words, rather than a sound for each letter.
