2nd Antiphon O Adonai 18 December
O Adonai, and Leader of the house of Israel,
you revealed yourself in the bush to Moses in a flame of fire,
and gave him the law on Sinai:
Come and redeem us with an outstretched arm.
“Adonai” is the Hebrew word for “Lord,” and is traditionally used in place of the Great Name of God, revealed to Moses out of the burning bush. Christ is the Lord who delivered the Israelites out of bondage (Exodus 3) and made them a people for himself.
