What is the Difference Between LORD and Lord?

In some translations of the Bible people ask the question, what is the difference between LORD or GOD versus Lord or God? There are these different spellings in several of the more literal or formal translations of the Bible your King James, New King James, ESV,  New American Standard, and others.

When we look at them There is a significance in that in the Old Testament and it helps us to understand which of the three names for God are used. Now if you see in all capital letters Lord or God that signifies that this is the word we would call Jehovah. This is the special name for God that self-existent God. That is the one that we think of when we speak of God.

Now Lord where the letters are lowercase means Adonai. This is the idea that can be used for men as well as God. This is the idea that He is the Lord of everything. The third where you see God with a capital G and lowercase letters is the word Elohim. This is used only once to refer to men but it always refers to God that He is the master that He is in charge.
