Maranatha!- Come,O Lord!



Come, O Lord!

There is some dispute as to what exactly that phrase means depending on how you divide the phrase.

In the original Greek text words are written consecutively without spaces.The same goes for the word μαραναθα (maranatha).

This word can be split up as μαραν αθα (maran-atha, מרן אתא‎) which means Our Lord has come! in this case.

Or the word can be divided as  μαρανα-θα marana-tha מרנאתא in which case it means Come O Lord!

In Bible translation the word is not translated usually but it is just transliterated instead as maranatha!
