• Psalms 83:18 says "for you, whose name is JEHOVAH, you are the most high over all the earth"
  • Have you ever heard it said that someone should make "a good name" for themselves? The term "name" can mean "reputation". There used to be an old cartoon called "quickdraw McGraw" where a horse/sherriff would say, "Stop in the name of the law!". He meant stop because of the authority given to anyone who is called "the law". "The name of the LORD" is a term meaning "the authority represented by the name of God".
  • "Hallowed Be THY Name" It is saying that the name is sacred and holy. Also, keep in mind that it is a sin to say his name in vain.
  • The Hebrew Tetragrammaton YHWH is only part of God's name and in both Jewish and Christian tradition is almost never spoken aloud. Catholics and most other Christians follow the example of the Jews and the Bible by almost never using the Name of God. This pious practice is out of supreme respect and in obedience to the Commandment not to use God's name in vain. With love in Christ.
  • Being a Gentile Christian by faith, I call Him Yaweh and/or Jehovah, though He has many names, which span from the proverbial "A" to "Z" or in His terms, "Alpha" and "Omega".
  • Counselor Mighty God Prince of Peace Everlasting Father Alpha and Omega He has many names, but i call Him, Father
  • The recognizable Engllish form of the Divine name is Jehovah. Check Psalms 83:18 of the King James Version, or the preface of many. The Hebrew form is likely Yahweh, but since many following traditions rather than translating what has been written, Rev 22:18,19 the exact pronunciation has been lost. Why would anyone want to follow the example of the Jews. Mark 7:5 so these Pharisees and scribes asked him: “Why is it your disciples do not conduct themselves according to the tradition of the men of former times, but they take their meal with defiled hands?” 6 He said to them: “Isaiah aptly prophesied about YOU hypocrites, as it is written, ‘This people honor me with [their] lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 7 It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, because they teach as doctrines commands of men.’ 8 Letting go the commandment of God, YOU hold fast the tradition of men Mathew 23:37“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent forth to her,—how often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks together under her wings! But YOU people did not want it. 38 Look! YOUR house is abandoned to YOU
  • ther is only one god in this warld and he has defrent hallowed name
  • Bacchus.
  • God's name is Jehovah and is mentioned in Psalm 83 verse 18
  • (Exodus 6:3) And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as God Almighty, but as respects my name Jehovah I did not make myself known to them. This scripture separates name from title. Jesus said we were to manifest God's NAME... Jesus was talking about his Father. Jehovah is the English translation of the Hebrew YHWH or YaHWeH... The Hebrew has no vowels so the pronunciation has been lost.
  • For faithful servants of Jehovah, or Jehovah’s Witnesses as they are commonly known today, there can be only one answer. Our God is Jehovah, the creator of all things – his very name means ‘he causes to become’. The Catholic Encyclopedia, Volume 8, 1910 edition, page 329, states: “Jehovah, the proper name of God in the Old Testament.” The name of God appears four times in the original King James version of the Bible (Exodus 6:3; Psalm 83:18; Isaiah 12:2; Isaiah 26:4) however, the Tetragrammaton (YHWH - pronounced Yehovah), which is the original Hebrew rendering of the English word Jehovah, appears some 7,000 times in the original Masoretic text! “The oldest archeological testimony favors the pronunciation Jehovah. A short inscription dated of the time of Amenophis III (circa 1400 BCE) has been found at Soleb…” - M. Gérard GERTOUX; a Hebrew scholar, specialist of the Tetragram; president of the Association Biblique de Recherche d’Anciens Manuscrits “The Jewish scholars known as Masoretes introduced a system of vowels and accents…In this way the Tetragrammaton became Ye-Ho-VaH and later on, in Western languages, Jehovah…” - B.9.2: The Biblical Background; Gilles C H Nullens “Yehovah - pronounced {yeh-ho-vaw’} - the self-Existent or Eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: - Jehovah the Lord.” - Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible - Entry 3068 Some Bible Translations Which Use God’s Name - Jehovah * King James Authorized Version (1611) * A Literal Translation of the New Testament (1863) * The Emphatic Diaglott (1864) * The Epistles of Paul in Modern English (1898) * St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans (1900) * The Christian’s Bible - New Testament (1928) * The New Testament Letters (1946) * New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (1961) * American Standard Version (1901) * The Darby Bible * Young’s Literal Translation (1862) * The Modern Reader’s Bible (1914) * New English Bible (1970) * The Living Bible (1971) * The Bible in Today’s English (Good News Bible - 1976) * English Revised * Webster’s Bible Translation There can be no doubt that Jehovah is the name of God. Even the name of Jesus means ‘Jehovah is Salvation.’ The first writings we have which tell us who Jehovah is come from the original books of the Bible, referred to as the Torah or Pentateuch by Judaism – the oldest religious writings of any kind uncovered to date. Moses was the first to write about Jehovah around 1400 B.C.E., though there is some secular evidence that Jehovah was known well before this, and the Scriptures tell us He has been known to us since the original man, Adam, drew his first breaths. Eve was the very first human to use Jehovah’s proper name in the Bible when she gave birth to her first son Cain. (Genesis 4:1) Genesis 4:26 also tells us that, after the birth of Adam’s grandson E’nosh, son of Seth: “At that time a start was made of calling on the name of Jehovah.” Was this Scripture telling us of the first religious services or prayers to Jehovah, since the death of Abel, some 5,800 years ago? Abraham, the first patriarch and origin of the Jewish people, was called Jehovah’s friend (James 2:23). When you consider someone a friend it is usually because you know them well and enjoy their company. What are their likes and dislikes? Do they have a good sense of humor? Are they easily upset, or slow to anger? Are they kind and generous, or selfish and self-absorbed? Doubtless, Abraham knew these things of his God and friend, Jehovah. If we too wish to be considered Jehovah’s friend, then it is imperative that we get to know him.
