Using this template {{LORD}} gives "LORD", the standard translation with small capitals for the Hebrew name for God (יהוה, transliterated as YHWH), as it is translated in the King James Bible and other English Bibles: the LORD. This name is the distinctive personal name of the God of Israel.

The all caps or small caps writing differentiate this from "Lord" in normal type, which is the standard translation for the Hebrew epithet אדני (transliterated Adonai), meaning "Lord".


The template uses the spelling "Lord", 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 "LORD". (See also Template:smallcaps.)
