Outstretched Arm

This evening’s antiphon recalls God’s mighty power to save. The 18 December antiphon begins with the title of Lord. Its Hebrew word, adonai, replaced the divine name, which was 
not pronounced. Paragraph 3 at the site Hebrew for Christians explains. It also lists the several uses of adonai.
Two years ago, Paul Zalonski, posted a summary of all the O Antiphons with a graphic: read vertically and left then right to see their order for the week.
Wiki-image of  O Adonai chant is in the public domain.
