5598 Ō (long ō, originally formed by pronouncing two short o's/omikrons together, cf. Zodhiates, Dictionary) – the final letter of the Greek alphabet; (figuratively) God's infinity (endlessness), in contrast to alpha – the first letter of the Greek alphabet which represents the Lord as the unoriginated originator of all life and all that is eternal.

In the NT, 5598 ("Ōmega") is always used of the glorified Christ (Rev 1:8, 21;6, 22:13), referring to His absolute limitlessness to meet all the needs of finite (limited) people.

[Ōmega is the twenty-fourth (final) letter of the Greek alphabet, which begins with 1 /A ("alpha").]
