It was particularly emphasized to me this morning what a terrible translation policy it is to render the tetragrammaton as “the LORD”, after a children’s talk which explained the third commandment iterated half a dozen names for God without ever mentioning the one he actually gave to Moses and the Israelites—the one to which the commandment is referring.

I do not blame the teacher. I blame the Bibles he is working from.
