Almighty

The Almighty is another word for God. If you practice a Judeo-Christian religion, you're probably familiar with mentions of the Almighty.

You're most likely to come across references to God as the Almighty in a Christian Bible, although one common Hebrew name for God, El Shaddai, can be translated as either "the Almighty," or "the all sufficient." The Old English source is ælmihtig, a compound of æl, "all," and mihtig, or "mighty," which is rooted in miht, "might," but also "power or authority."
