The trend of Hellenistic Judaism-Christianity
to multiply the use
of Greek divine appellations /

Η τάση του Ελληνιστικού Ιουδαϊσμού-Χριστιανισμού
να πολλαπλασιάζει
τη χρήση ελληνικών θεονυμιών

1 Samuel / 1 Reigns 1:11, LXX & NETS:

καὶ ηὔξατο εὐχὴν κυρίῳ λέγουσα
Αδωναι κύριε ελωαι σαβαωθ,
ἐὰν ἐπιβλέπων ἐπιβλέψῃς ἐπὶ τὴν ταπείνωσιν τῆς δούλης σου
καὶ μνησθῇς μου

and vowed a vow to the Lord, saying:
'Adonai, Lord, Eloai, Sabaoth,
if looking you will look on the humiliation of your slave
and remember me

1 Esdras / 3 Ezra 9:46, LXX & NETS:

καὶ εὐλόγησεν Εσδρας
τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ ὑψίστῳ θεῷ σαβαωθ παντοκράτορι
and Esdras blessed
the Lord, God Most High, God Sabaoth, Almighty

Sirach / Ecclesiasticus 50:17, LXX & NETS:

τότε πᾶς ὁ λαὸς κοινῇ κατέσπευσαν καὶ ἔπεσαν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν
τκυρίῳ αὐτῶν παντοκράτορι θεῷ ὑψίστῳ

Then all the people hurried with one accord, and they fell face down on the ground,
to do obeisance to
their Lord, the Almighty, God Most High.
