  • Alfred Ola HAMMOND on Psalms 100
    In Ps.100 v 3 we see LORD and God. LORD is in capital letters while God is written with a capital g only. Why?

    Can I infer from Ps.100 v 3 that the word LORD has 'greater' meaning than the word God?

    Hi Alfred,

    Just for a little reply to your question. The word LORD is the translation of the four Hebrew letters YHWH usually pronounced YaHWeH. In newer Hebrew JeHoVaH. The name of Almighty God translated to LORD over 6k times.

    As even the Hebrews were really unsure of exactly how to pronounce it. Not wanting to say it wrong because of how pure He is they usually just say HaShem which means "the name".

    The word God is the Hebrew word Elohiym which is a plural word used for diety or God. Translated over 2k times as God.

    As He has many names those are just a few.

    I hope that helps a little and if anything is off maybe someone else may chime in.

    God Bless.
