NOT MY SHEPHERD!

Did you know that the name of the Jewish god is Yahweh (יהוה)?
When the Hebrew writers of their holy book  didn’t want to write the name of their god (in an attempt not to break commandment #3 …. “You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain”…) they just wrote Adonai (Lord).
In modern times when reading the Old Testament, if you come upon this (LORD in all caps), the LORD, insert Yahweh … the passage makes more sense. Try it in the passage I gave above.
