began adding them between 7th-11th century.
Added the Vowels for adonai to remind readers not to pronounce the name. 'El, or 'Elohim The word lord comes to modern English from the Old English hlāford, once hlāfweard, by way of the Middle English louerd, its meaning coming from hlāf ‘bread’ and weard ‘guard, protector, keeper.’ Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Divine Determinative

stands for 'ntr/w' or 'god/s'
appears next to anything to do with the god's names, temples, or totem objects
