Re: Who or What is the God 'On' (Ων, ὄν)?

Also the verb ὂν is neuter thus doesn't specify a gender, but in LXX Exodus 3:14 it is ὢν (masculine).

Re: Who or What is the God 'On' (Ων, ὄν)?

Horon is written as a dual, Horonaim (חרנים) and Jeremiah 48:34 associates it with Zoar (צער) which means ἀγορά which suggests Horonaim (חרנים) means ἀγοραῖν "of two assemblies" i.e a city ruled by two assemblies, probably a people's assembly and a council of chiefs.
