Ulysses, 1922.djvu


Abba!     (Syriac-Greek) Father.[1] The word is chiefly used as an invocation to God as the Heavenly Father.

Adonai!     (Hebrew) My Lord.[2] This term is usually substituted for the Tetragrammaton YHWH, the sacred name of the God, which Jews consider too sacred to be uttered.
