adonist definition

  • noun:
    • one that keeps that the vowel points of this Tetragrammaton translated "Jehovah" will be the vowel things that fit in with the word Adonai.
    • one that maintains that things of the Hebrew term converted “Jehovah” are really the vowel points of the term “Adonai.” See jehovist.
    • One who maintained that the vowel-points normally written underneath the consonants associated with the Hebrew term JHVH (pronounced because the sixteenth century, except one of the Jews, Jehovah) aren't the all-natural points belonging to that term, but are vowel-points belonging to the terms Adonai and Elohim; these words are replaced in reading by the Jews when it comes to title JHVH, a name which they tend to be forbidden to utter, and real pronunciation that is lost. Those people just who held the alternative view were called Jehovists.
