LORD your God / Lord your God

The Hebrew and Greek that is translated in English as “LORD your God” or “Lord your God” is translated as “LORD our God” and “Lord our God” in Tzotzil as well as in many other Mayan languages if the speaker is included as one who calls the LORD their God. If the speaker said “your God” in Tzotzil, he or she would refer to the God of the people he or she addresses but would specifically exclude himself or herself.
