Dear Friends,

  I understand that the Hebrew word 'DON means "lord, master", but it also 
appears as 'DONAI and is also used of God. At first glance, it looks like it 
is in the construct state, but I am understand that it is actually in the 
plural and means "my lords", and is so used even in contemporary Judaism in 
place of the Divine Name when reading the MT. Your comments would be 
appreciated.

                                         Tony Costa
