Kristin Posted May 6, 2022 Share Posted May 6, 2022 I hope everyone can forgive me for another question about this. As some of you may remember I had been looking for a way to put a proper name in construct, and everyone in unison was saying that was not grammatically possible, so I dealt with it and have been abiding by what is supposedly a grammatical rule. With this as a preface, what is the explanation for the common phrase "the LORD of hosts"? The "LORD" is obviously substituting a proper name, and regardless of how it is translated, "hosts" is a noun. So "the LORD OF hosts" is putting "the LORD" in construct, and I am unclear why this is alright given the prior conversations about this. Thank you for any thoughts anyone has.
