Adonists critics who maintain that the Hebrew points ordinarily annexed to the consonants of the word Jehovah are not the natural points belonging to that word, but to the words Adonai (q.v.) and Elohim; and that they are applied to the consonants of the ineffable name Jehovah, to warn the readers that, instead of the word Jehovah, which the Jews were forbid to pronounce, they are always to read Adonai. They are opposed to Jehovists, who maintain the opposite view. SEE JEHOVAH.
