"In the beginning was the Word
and the Word was with THE God
and the Word was God."
Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
The Word of God - Written in the Targum, and in other Jewish writings, מימרא דיי meimera daiya, “the word of Jehovah;” by which they always mean a person, and not a word spoken. Adam Clarke
