Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






A New Journey…The Names of God in The Scriptures

Genesis 15:2

But Abram said, “O Lord GOD, what will you give me, for I continue childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?”

Adonai

Lord; God; name used as a substitute for the sacred Tetragrammaton; emphatic form of ’Adon (Isa. 6:1). Occurs 300 times in the Tanakh. The first use appears in Gen. 15:2 where Abram addresses God as “Adonai YHVH.”

YAVEH (don't forget to read from right to left).

Does anybody know why the Hebrew uses a V but we use a W?

The plural form Adonai, like the plural form Elohim, is regularly used with singular verbs and modifiers, so it is best to construe the Name as an “emphatic plural” or “plural of majesty.”

I've often wondered about that. Considering that Genesis (like all the other books in the Bible) is God-inspired, is it possible that it actually refers to the Trinity? Think about it, God as one (singular verb) and God as three (plural noun). JMHO

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem







When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty[El Shaddai]; walk before me faithfully and be blameless. 2 Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.”

Thank You, Former Fetus, For Your Faithful Prayers For The Peace of Jerusalem, For Our FRiends in Need, For Persecuted Believers, and For Our Beloved Nation.



Blessings to All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer
