Adonai

From Hebrew אֲדֹנָי‎ (ādônay, “My Lord”); used in place of the Tetragrammaton YHWH as a name of the God of the Hebrews during prayer recitation.

Owing to the Jewish tradition viewing the divine name as too sacred to be uttered it was replaced vocally in the synagogue ritual by the Hebrew word Adonai (“My Lord”), which was translated as Kyrios (“Lord”) in the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Hebrew scriptures
