To make a long story short, I was reading a commentary on Psalm 91 that argued that שַׁדַּי $DY should be translated in such a way that it demonstrates God's bounty. I was curious to see how it was translated in the Septuagint so I looked it up. I was surprised to find that it was rarely translated at all. Usually, the authors substituted God or Lord. Is there some reason for this? Was שַׁדַּי considered too holy to translate or something?
