I heard a preacher yesterday say that El Shaddai could also mean "Many-breasted" and could refer to God metaphorically or symbolically as God our sustainer/provider. I don't know Hebrew at all, though i hope to learn in the near future. Is this at all true? I didn't see this meaning at all when i opened TWOT and BDB, though i did notice that it was immediately preceded by the Hebrew word for "breast," and the words seemed to look and sound alike. Root falacy, perhaps? Descendant of the "breast" meaning but by the time Israel used it, it had totally taken on the meaning "God-Almighty"? Any further clarification from someone familiar with Hebrew would be appreciated. I find it hard to believe that YHWH could also be referred to as "Many-breasted" and i've never heard of this before, though i could be mistaken.
