adoni

  

Psalms 110:1 is the most quoted Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) verse in the New Testament! Quoted and alluded to, 23 times in the NT. [1]

I knew many years ago that the second word ‘Lord’ in this verse i.e.
The LORD said unto my Lord

was not the Hebrew word Adonai i.e. God’s title as Supreme Lord;
however I did not know at the time the significance of this!

So back in the day … when I read the amazing assertion that the Hebrew word translated in this verse as ‘Lord’ was actually the Hebrew word adoni; and that this Hebrew word is never ever used in reference to Almighty God!

That is, it is never ever used in reference to deity; but solely used to refer to lords/masters who are not God i.e. humans and angels!!

I was truly flabbergasted!!! …

… because I knew that this had amazing implications on defining
‘Who the Lord Jesus actually is’.

Especially since Jesus, the apostles and the early church used this verse and hence its meaning to define what they meant when they called Jesus of Nazareth: “Lord”!!

Since the Messiah is called adoni and it is obvious that the Messiah was not and is not an angelic being [Heb 1:5,13; 2:5]; it left only one possibility:

  • Jesus is a bona fide human being … he was and is truly a man.
  • And this man was called adoni because this man indeed was prophesied to be David’s lord as well as David’s son/descendant;
  • This man therefore was foreordained to be the Messiah, David’s lord and our lord;
    by the One God, viz. Yahweh God Almighty, who alone is Adonai.

Therefore, no Jewish reader of the OT/NT era in light of their scriptures and their language; would have ever imagined for one second that the Messiah was to be deity i.e. God Almighty because …

[besides the obvious fact that to the Jews there is solely one being/person who is God Almighty viz. Yahweh; and therefore whoever Yahweh was speaking of could not be another deity, another God! That would make two … and that’s an impossibility]

… the word used to describe the Lordship of the Messiah is the Hebrew word used for beings that are not deity, who are not Almighty God!

Like I said the implications were enormous.
Anthony Buzzard in his writings asserted that the word adoni occurred 195 times in the Hebrew Bible and in each occurrence; it is used to solely refer to beings/lords who were not God, i.e. humans and occasionally angels.
Therefore, I had to investigate this claim to see whether those things were so. [Acts 17.11]

And to my amazement I discovered that this assertion was true!

My Christian walk has never been the same since. Because it caused me to have another look & revisit who Jesus is! … And … What the early church meant when they called Jesus of Nazareth, Lord!

Below is the list of the 195 occurrences of the word adoni in 163 verses; for your viewing.
I have listed both KJV and NASB renderings of each verse; and put in bold the actual English word translated from adoni.

    Thanks for the fine article, Delroy. You are really raising the bar around here 🙂

    It is interesting to note that the NASB always translates adoni as “my lord” with a lower case “l” with the sole exception being Psalm 110.1. It kind of makes me think that they fudged here to obscure the continuity between the previous 178 occurences and this one in Psalm110.1, thereby separating Jesus from the other humans who were called “my lord.”

    Another thought is that since the words “my lord” (i.e. adoni) never refer to God, how does this effect when Thomas calls Jesus, “my lord and my God?”

    Delroy, thanks so much for laying all this out for us.
    Ps.110:1 will change the whole face of theology and Christology!
    Jesus is “the Messiah lord” (Luke 2:11) never God, who is uniquely Lord God.
