🔼The name Asiel in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Asiel
The name Asiel consists of two elements. The first part comes from the verb עשה ('asa), meaning to do or make:
The verb עשה ('asa) means to do, make happen or work with. Noun מעשה (ma'aseh) means deed, act, work, doing, making and so on.
In names אל ('el) usually refers to אלהים ('elohim), that is Elohim, or God, also known as אלה ('eloah). In English, the words 'God' and 'god' exclusively refer to the deity but in Hebrew the words אל ('l) and אלה ('lh) are far more common and may express approach and negation, acts of wailing and pointing, and may even mean oak or terebinth.
For a meaning of the name Asiel, NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads God Has Made. Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names suggests Created Of God.
