Lord Almighty

Lord Almighty is the typical name for God found in the New Testament as a substitute for the Old Testament Lord of Hosts. The Hebrew Yahweh tseva’ot was translated into Greek as Kyrios pantokratōr. Because pantokratōr literally means “all powerful,” Lord Almighty was a natural expression of the title.

And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,”

Similar names for God are Lord God the Almighty and God Almighty. A more direct transliteration of the underlying Hebrew into Greek is  Kyrios Sabaōth, found in two New Testament verses.
