also known as: Maran'athah, Maran-atha
This word consists of two Aramaic words, Maran'athah, meaning, “our Lord comes,” or is “coming.”
If the latter interpretation is adopted, the meaning of the phrase is, “Our Lord is coming, and he will judge those who have set him at nought.”
The word appears in 1 Corinthians 16:22.
