Notice that the bystanders thought that Jesus was calling for Elijah. Because of Jesus’ heavy Aramaic accent they mistook his words as Eliya ta which means “Elijah, come.”
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, la’ma sabach-tha’ni?” that is, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders hearing it said, “This man is calling Eli’jah.” (Matthew 27:46-47)
Eli Eli is really ***Eli atta ***which in Hebrew means “you are my God.” This phrase is all over Scripture…
*Teach me to do thy will,
for thou art my God!
Let thy good spirit lead me
on a level path!
But I trust in thee, O LORD,
I say, "Thou art my God."
O God, thou art my God, I seek thee,
my soul thirsts for thee;
my flesh faints for thee,
as in a dry and weary land where no water is.
Thou art my God, and I will give thanks to thee;
thou art my God, I will extol thee.
This is just a sample. There are others.
