Father

אָב (ʾāb)
Father

But now, O Lord, You are our Father,
We are the clay, and You our potter;
And all of us are the work of Your hand.
– Isaiah 64:8

The Hebrew word ab means father, and it is used to talk not only about earthly fathers but also God as a Father to Israel. It is this same Father Who gave His Son so that we too may be called sons of God, that we may graphed in, adopted, that we may call Him our Father.
