"Almighty God" are the Hebrew words "El Shaddai."

If you have a Strong’s Concordance, the word "El" is number 410, and you can find all the verses where it is used. It is used in the sense of "might, strength, and power."

The word "Shaddai" is number 7706, and you can also look up all of the references where it is used in the Bible. It is used in the sense of "almighty."
