(Heb. Ishi', אַישַׁי , my husband; Sept. ἀνὴρ μου, Vulg. Vir meus), a metaphorical name prescribed for himself by Jehovah, to be used by the Jewish Church, expressive of her future fidelity and privilege of intimacy, in contrast with the spirit of legalism indicated by the title Baali, "my master" (Hosea 2:16).
