Why is the word Lord capitalized completely at one time then the next time it is just the letter “L” only? (LORD or Lord) Thank you, Doug T.
When the Hebrew word Adonai is used in the Hebrew Bible, it is written as Lord in the English Bible. When Yahweh is used it is translated as LORD to avoid over-using God’s name. Is it possible Egyptians knew of Yahweh as far back as 1400 BC?
