    Of course, we all know there’s conjecture about the translations + pronunciations of the tetragrammaton on account of Jewish traditions not to speak the name aloud, and the tendancy of their scribes to write in short-hand. 😀
    But indeed, our God is our warrior and our strength, lest we forget this and think to raise a sword in his name without his saying so.

  2. 2 Scripture Zealot

    Ha. I was going to use one without the tetragrammaton so there wouldn’t be any confusion.

  3. 3 Jonathan Sharman

    hehehehe, it’s ok 😀
    You couldn’t slip that one by us 😉 xD

  4. 4 Gary Simmons

    That was a nice verse!

    No emoticons from me though! *smile!*

  5. 5 Joel H.

    Why did you translate the tetragrammaton as “Lord” the first time but as “Yahweh” the second? (For what it’s worth, I don’t think it was ever pronounced “Yahweh.”)


  6. 6 Scripture Zealot

    Joel that’s HCSB and it was their verse for the day. I didn’t give any thought to the translation. I certainly can’t translate!

  7. 7 T.C. R

    Joel H,
    I too wondered. I was a bit curious about the same. Perhaps, style?

  8. 8 Jonathan Sharman

    I don’t mind either way, I mean there are so many names for God that the list is endless, and perhaps that is the point!
    God could be trying to take the legalism out of it – not that I can say for sure, of course, but yeah… I think he knows when we’re talking to him 😀 (or about him)
