Making Christ Known

We are an Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) congregation growing in the likeness of Christ by:

Worshiping, praying, and studying God’s word;
Being together with other people; and
Acting in faith through words and deeds both inside and outside our church walls.

Ch 4 Question: What name did the Israelites refer to God in place of YHWH? Our translations use "LORD"...but what did the people of Moses' time actually say?

The Hebrew people said "Adonai", which is how they would say LORD.  The pronunciation is add-oh-NIGH.  They were very careful not to say Yahweh (YAH-way) because that would imply that you had power over God.
