Two Hebrew words underlie this descriptive name of God. ’Addir means superior and therefore majestic One or mighty One. Gibbor carries the idea of strength.
Some Bible verses contain the triple description of God: great, mighty, and awesome (Deut.10:17-18; Neh. 9:32). Those three adjectives form part of names in some Bible verses. God is mighty to accomplish all His will and He is mighty to save (Isa. 63:1). Psalm 8:1, 9 use ’addir to speak of His majestic name.

After the angel Gabriel told Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus (Yeshua‘), Mary spoke a poem (called the Magnificat by some people) that included the following words:
The Mighty One has done great things for me;
And holy is His name. (Luke 1:49)
Similar names for God are Mighty God (’El Gibbor) and the Mighty One, God the Lord (which is a completely different name in Hebrew). Mighty One of Jacob and Mighty One of Israel come from different Hebrew words too. Almighty is another word used in several names of God.
