It means Stong One. The plural for of El. It is used for false gods but never in it's plural form. When referring to God, it is always in it's plural form.
Isa. 54:5Jer. 32:27Gen. 1:1Isa. 45:18Deut. 5:23; 8:15 Ps. 68:7

El Shadai-"God Almighty"
Gen 17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
El Elyon-"The Most High God"
Gen 14:19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
El Olam-"The Everlasting God"
Gen 21:33 And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.

He is Almighty, the Most High, and Everlasting. Is there anything else that can be called all that? No way. And that is just the beginning. Based off of just these names, does this change your perspective on things in your life? Think about who this says God is. Give him praise and reverence for what this says about him. Doesn't it feel great to know God a little more?
