Iao Sabaoth

Iao Sabaoth is Greek, derived from the Hebrew “YHVH Tzaviot,” usually translated “Lord of Hosts,” a name of God in the Old Testament. In modern biblical translations, it is often rendered as “Commander of armies.”

The name Iao Sabaoth is also applied together or named separately as Gnostic archons; the Gnostic Iao is associated with both Abraxas and the seven headed dragon; he is sometimes referred to as the “Father of Lies.”

“Holy, holy, Lord of Sabaoth, hosanna in the highest, the Blessed.”
