JHWH

The NAME of the only true God !

The Hebrew name JHWH is written 7026 times in the Holy Bible.

Incense Altar - Exodus 30 ( Replica )

"...For from there where the Sun rises

to there where its going down,

my NAME shall be great among the Gentiles:

in every place incense shall

be offered unto My NAME,

and a pure offering;

for My NAME shall be great among the nations,";

saith JHWH of Hosts.

A part of Malachi 1:11

On the previous page I already mentioned that the Hebrew name of God is YHWH.
Unfortunately is the Holy NAME of the only true God in the most Bibles translated with LORD.
But LORD is a title and not a name.
But, how do you pronounce JHWH, and what is the meaning of the holy name?

Before continuing about how to pronounce the holy NAME of the creator a

 

WARNING!

 

I want to show the third of the Ten Commandments where it says that nobody may use Gods NAME unwurthy:

Thou shalt not abuse the name JHWH of thy God;

for JHWH will not hold him guiltless that abuses his name.

Exodus 20 verse 7

JHWH said to Mozes and the Israelites in the Thora ( = first 5 books of the Old Testament ):

Who blasphemeth the name JHWH,

shall surely be put to death ...

Leviticus 24:16

To begin with I will insert a picture of the holy NAME in Hebrew.

Hebrew square writing of the Tetragrammaton.

 

The above painting shows God's name in Hebrew writing. Hebrew is written from right to left, with only consonants. What you see here are the consonants J H W H or Y H W H.
JHWH is the Tetragrammaton, the way Gods Holy name is written.

Yesjoewa ( Jesus ) answered:

"The first of all the commandments is:

Listen, O Israel; JHWH, our God,

is one JHWH,

And thou shalt love JHWH, thy God,

with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,

and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.

This is the first commandment.

 

As second comes to this:

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

There is none other commandment greater than these."

Mark 12:29-31 ( See also Deuteronomy 6:4 )

 

The name of God is pronounced in Aramaic like Yahweh and in modern Jiddisch as Yehoewah.

In Old Hebrew the Holy name JHWH ( YHWH ) is pronounced like YeHWaH.

The J in JHWH is in englisch pronounced as the Y in Yahoo, so YHWH would be a good way to write the NAME of the only true God in englisch.

The E in YeHWaH is pronounced like the e in the.

The A in YeHWaH is pronounced like the the a in Father, or Yah like in Hallelujah ( which in Herbrew means "praise Yah" or praise YeHWaH and in Aramaic "praise YaHWeH" ).

WaH ( the last part of YeHWaH ) is coming from the Hebrew verb "ha-wah", which means become.

The meaning of the holy name YeHWaH is: "He ( who ) causes to become".

Therefore is YeHWaH the one that always realizes His Word.

And those who know Your NAME, shall trust you:

because You, JHWH,

will not forsake those that seek You.

Psalms 9:10

For whosoever shall call upon the name JHWH shall be saved.

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed?

and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?

and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Romans 10:13+14
