The meaning of Aliah in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)
a-li'-a ('alyah): One of the dukes, or heads of thousands of Edom (I Chronicles 1:51). In Genesis 36:40 the name is Alvah ('alwah), the only difference being the change of the weaker w, of Gen. to the somewhat stronger, y, of the later Chronicles, a change which is not infrequent in Hebrew. He is not to be confused, as in HDB, with the Alian of the same chapter.
