If 'EL GIBBOR  was not considered a divine title, why is it used of Yahweh
in Isa.10:21? Is this not the only the place (9:5) where this title is
actually applied to a human being? In fact the word "wonderful" as a name in
9:5  is only used of God and never any human. (Judg.13:18; Isa. 25:1; 28:29)
