...or has it?
So what's the difference between LORD and Lord in the KJV and do the MV concur?
i believe u'll find, if u read the intros to the NIV n other MVs, as well as check out each instance, that MVs n the KJB follow the same convention -- i.e. "LORD" for YHWH, "Lord" for adonai n kyrios.
however, there may be some variation in YWHW Sabaoth, where the KJB wld have LORD of Hosts vs some MVs' LORD Almighty.
but u're prob right that there's been little debate so far, possibly cos the diffs haven't been blown completely out of proportion by the KJBOs. for how long, we'll never know!
What? A perfectly good topic yet no takers.
So, am curious, when the word LORD (all Caps - YHWH-Tetragrammaton) is in the OT (KJV), that's Jesus - did the MVs change it to Lord or leave it at LORD (all caps)? If they did, wouldn't that change the meaning of the text? Sure it would. So which versions have done that? Ah-ha!
Anybody know? Anybody care? Or is this topic just too deep for some of you scholarly types?
Most versions translate YHWH as "LORD"
Hope this helps.
LE, please note that the AV often has the pronouns that refer to God in lower case, while newer versions capitalize them. I believe this is not from irreverence on the part of the AV makers, but is because the capping of these pronouns wasn't in the English style of 1611.
The AV usually italicizes or capitalizes the words it's added, or not rendered literally, and I believe they made a special case for "LORD" when it refers to God from the Hebrew YHWH, rendering the word in all caps, maybe to distinguish the LORD GOD from all other lords. Several other versions do the same, as Dr.Bob said.
Thanks. But LORD is YHWH Who is Jesus.
