This is a common issue from translators. In its original Hebrew context is Adonai (My Adon [Lord]). However, if the translator is using an English translation where it reads Lord for every YHWH & Adonai; then these issues occurred.
Without moving out of its context, as in this case, we can't forget the "my ..."; in other words, the correct translation is Adonai (my Adon).

Please, a question for our dear qBible folks: In this verse, the Hebrew text has the word Adonai which is translated by qBible as YHWH; yet in verse 13, the Hebrew text has the tetragram, which has also been translated by qBible as YHWH - so, is this intentional, and is this done consistently through qBible's Old Testament translation?

The text is translated to "And said, Yahwe, if now I have found..."

But the hebraic word is "Adown". not "Yahwe".
