Maranatha

the Lord is coming

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Maranatha

an Aramaic or Syriac expression used by St. Paul at the conclusion of his first Epistle to the Corinthians, ch. (1 Corinthians 16:22) signifying "our Lord cometh."

ATS Bible Dictionary
Maranatha

Composed of two Syriac words, signifying "the Lord cometh." See ANATHEMA.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
(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.)
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
(n.) Our Lord cometh; -- an expression used by St. Paul at the conclusion of his first Epistle to the Corinthians (xvi. 22). This word has been used in anathematizing persons for great crimes; as much as to say, May the Lord come quickly to take vengeance of thy crimes. See Anathema.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
MARANATHA

mar-a-nath'-a, mar-an-a'-tha (from Aramaic words, marana' 'athah, "Our Lord cometh, or will come"; according to some, "has come"; to others, "Come!" an invitation for his speedy reappearance (compare Revelation 22:20); maranatha, or maran atha): Used in connection with anathema, "accursed" (1 Corinthians 16:22), but has no necessary connection therewith. It was used by early Christians to add solemn emphasis to previous statement, injunction or adjuration, and seems to have become a sort of watchword; possibly forming part of an early liturgy.
