The Hebrews so revered the name of the Lord that they would not speak it, and they wrote it in such a way that no one could deduce how to pronounce it.
Yet today a popular song declares “We love to shout your name” and then uses a name that cannot be known as the Lord’s — and also likely misspells and mispronounces it.
I might have made a better Hebrew. I fear our generation has lost the enormity of God’s fearsome majesty, even in a song that proclaims “At Your name mountains shake and crumble, At Your name the oceans roar and tumble.”
I hope the enthusiastic familiarity of our worship does not insult the Almighty.
