1: παντοκράτωρ
(Strong's #3841 — Noun Masculine — pantokrator — pan-tok-rat'-ore )

"almighty, or ruler of all" (pas, "all," krateo, "to hold, or to have strength"), is used of God only, and is found, in the Epistles, only in 2 Corinthians 6:18 , where the title is suggestive in connection with the context; elsewhere only in the Apocalypse, nine times. In one place, Revelation 19:6 , the AV has "omnipotent;" RV, "(the Lord our God,) the Almighty." The word is introduced in the Sept. as a translation of "Lord (or God) of hosts," e.g., Jeremiah 5:14 ; Amos 4:13 .
