Anathema Maranatha

ANATHEMA MARANATHA (a-năth'ĕ-ma mâr'a-năth'a). These words (1Cor.16.22) have been taken as being a double imprecation (kjv) or as having no necessary connection. Maranatha (nasb) may be a distinct sentence made up of two Aramaic words, either Maran atha (jb)—“Our Lord is come [or comes]”—or Marana tha (neb)—“Our Lord, come” (mlb, rsv). It may have been an expression among early Christians to indicate their fervent hope in Christ’s early return. See Maranatha.
