Pele in the Bible?

Maybe someone out there can give me some impartial expert assistance on this little find....

It seems that the word 'Pele' was used in the Bible but has now been purged from it.

1) wonder, marvel
1a) wonder (extraordinary, hard to understand thing)
1b) wonder (of God' s acts of judgment and redemption)

Pele is used 13 times in the Hebrew Bible but has been swapped for 'wonders'.
Exodus 15:11: "fearful in praises, doing wonders?"
Psalms 77:11: "of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old."
Psalms 77:14: "Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people."
Psalms 78:12: " Marvelous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan."
Psalms 88:10: "Wilt thou show wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah."
Psalms 88:12: " Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?"
Psalms 89:5: "And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints."
Psalms 119:129: "Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep"
Isaiah 9:6: "and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting"
Isaiah 25:1: "thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness"
Isaiah 29:14: "this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding"
Lamentations 1:9: "not her last end; therefore she came down wonderfully: she had no comforter. O LORD, behold"
Daniel 12:6: "the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?"

'Pele' is also a Hebrew boy's name.

The name 'Pele' in Hawaiian means 'lava' and the word for volcano is 'lua pele'.

 “Wonder” or “astonishment” define this Hebrew word. It means that which is “unusual” or “extraordinary” to such a degree it astonishes the witnesses and provokdes wonder. Again, it is the state of something being beyond the ordinary or beyond what is humanly possible such that one is awe-struck. More here.

Lava from the volcano god Pele in Hawaii and lava from the volcano god Yahweh would certainly have astonished the witnesses and provoked wonder.

And this hysterical article referencing a book called 'Perpetuated in Righteousness' disputing the possibility the Hawaiians, as well as the Incas, worshipped Yahweh. Well, they are connected in one aspect at least......volcanic activity worship.
