NAME OF GOD: Jehovah Elohim Tsaba

Pastor Tony Evans created a list of all the names of God and their pronunciations that can be found here. He also included the scripture for each one. I am going to put every English translation from biblegateway.com. I don’t know what all of the abbreviations stand for. You can click the hyperlink abbreviation to be directed to biblegateway.com and discover which version is which if you are unsure. 😉 My thoughts are italicized.

MEANING: LORD God of Hosts

MSG Desperadoes have ganged up on me, they’re hiding in ambush for me. I did nothing to deserve this, God, crossed no one, wronged no one. All the same, they’re after me, determined to get me. Wake up and see for yourself! You’re God, God-of-Angel-Armies, Israel’s God! Get on the job and take care of these pagans, don’t be soft on these hard cases.

This makes me feel like what we may be guilty of at times. Coming across to God as if He is unaware and unmoved by our circumstances. Wanting Him to move quickly and on our timetable.

Lord God of virtues. Give attention to punishing.

YLT And Thou, Jehovah, God of Hosts, God of Israel, Awake to inspect all the nations. Favour not any treacherous dealers of iniquity. Selah.

Inspect. Favour not. This author seems like they were going through and the people they trusted betrayed them. Rather than going after them, at least from what’s written, they seem to seek the vengeance of God. It reminds me of Romans 12:19 “Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.”
