Emmanuel "God with us" (Isaiah 7:14) What is the Greek word for "God with us"? I believe it is Emmanuel. However, somebody strongly argued that it is Limanuel which I didn't fine in the Bible nor in Greek leterature.

The LXX transliterates the Hebrew עִמָּנוּ אֵל in Isaiah 7:14 into Greek as Εμμανουηλ, but in Isaiah 8:8, it translates it as μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν ὁ θεός (“God [is] with us”).

The Greek word Εμμανουηλ would be transliterated into English as “Emmanuel.”
