Usage[edit]

Using this template {{GOD}} gives "GOD", the standard translation with small capitals for the Hebrew name for God (יהוה, transliterated as JHVH, interpreted as Jehovah), as it is translated in the King James Bible and other English Bibles, in the special case when it is in proximity to the Hebrew name Adonai, also meaning "Lord". In this case, "Adonai Jehovah" is translated as "Lord GOD" or "Lord GOD". (See also the LORD.)

The all caps or small caps writing differentiate this from "God" in normal type.

Technical[edit]

The template uses the spelling "God", presented in small caps. The style becomes full caps when the text is copy-pasted, or when it is displayed in degraded form on a non-CSS or mobile browser, or when it is displayed as a text snippet on a search engine results page. In such case the word shows as "GOD". (See also Template:smallcaps.)
