Maranatha

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Maranatha : (1 Corinthians 16:22) consists of two Aramean 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." (Comp. Philippians 4:5; James 5:8,9.)
