Webb,

It is used as title by John in Revelation which is alluding to its OT usage
found in the paragraphs below. I read the KURIOS hO QEOS hO PANTOKRATWR, as
a title, "The Lord God Almighty" found in Revelation 4:8; 11:17; 15:3; 16:7,
14; 21:22. The MT/LXX of Isaiah 6:4 has, "YHWH SeBAOTH." KURIOS = YHWH,
SABAWQ = SeBAOTH (which is transliterated).

hO DE KURIOS hO QEOS hO PANTOKRATWR is found in Hosea 12:6; Amos 3:13; 5:14,
15, 16. There the LXX translates hO KURIOS = YHWH, hO QEOS = 'eLoHEy, hO
PANTOKRATWR = HaZeBa'oTH.

In fact, PANTOKRATWR is used to translate both Sabaoth and Shaddai and is
NOT found before the LXX. Job 8:5 has PROS KURION PANTOKRATORA for 'EL-'EL
We'EL-SHADDAI. (See Colin Brown, Vol. 3, pp 716-718).

KURIOS PANTOKRATWR is used in Zechariah 1:3 (paralleled by KURIOS TWN
DUNAMEWN, 2x), 1:4, 6, 12 (KURIE) , 14; 81, 2, 3, 4, 6(2x), 7, 9(2x), 11,14,
17, 18, 20, 21, 23; Malachi 1:4, 6, 8, 9, 10,11, 12, 13, 14. Every one of
these instances translate YHWH SABAOTH.

En Xristwi,

Rev. Bryant J. Williams III
