The name of God in Greek biblical texts (Septuagint)


The Name of Elohim (God): Yehowah or Yehovah?


36 Reasons the NAME of the GOD of Israel is YEHOWAH.wmv

By Ariel Yehosef Yehuda

This video shows 36 reasons why YEHOWAH is the NAME of the ONE TRUE GOD and why yahweh and yahuwah can not be the NAME. These reasons are easy to understand. You don't have to be an expert in Hebrew. For example, there are 19 names that start with the prefix YEHO and 14 names that start with YO. Both are short for YEHOWAH.Together these names make 33 reasons. You will have to watch the video for the remaining 3 reasons.
As I have watched this video I see where I have made several mistakes in pronounciation and I used Yehudi instead of Yehudim. Please look at the big picture. After all, I am a carpenter and not a scholar.
Yehowah said HIS people would know HIS NAME Isa.52:6 and that we would be called by it. 2 Chron. 7:14

The meaning of God's holy name according to an early Christian source

"That mystic name which is called the Tetragrammaton, by which alone they who had access to the Holy of Holies [Temple in Jerusalem] were protected, is pronounced JEHOVAH (Iehovah), which means, Who is, and Who shall be" (Nicetas, Bishop of Heraclea, cites Clement of Alexandria's Stromata, Book V. Chapter 6:34, 2nd Century A.D. From The Catena On the Pentateuch, published in Latin by Francis Zephyrus, p. 146).

Jah is or not a contraction?

There is still a linquistic "battlefield" if Jah is or not a contraction of the tetragrammaton's so called "matres lectionis" YHWH

I need help in this question, please.

"Alleluia-Hebrew, "Praise ye Jah," or Jehovah: here first used in Revelation, whence Ellicott infers the Jews bear a prominent part in this thanksgiving. Jah is not a contraction of "Jehovah," as it sometimes occurs jointly with the latter. It means "He who Is": whereas Jehovah is "He who will be, is, and was." It implies God experienced as a PRESENT help; so that "Hallelujah," says Kimchi in Bengel, is found first in the Psalms on the destruction of the ungodly. "Hallelu-Jah" occurs four times in this passage. Compare Ps 149:4-9, which is plainly parallel, and indeed identical in many of the phrases, as well as the general idea. Israel, especially, will join in the Hallelujah, when "her warfare is accomplished" and her foe destroyed."

Rabbi Chanina Ben Teradion using God's divine name

Here is some interesting things about this rabbi

"Lived in Eretz Israel : 1st & 2nd century AD

Rabbi Chanina was a third generation Tana. He lived in Sichnin, in the Lower Galilee. His colleague was R' Chalafta. He was one of the Ten Martyrs (Asarah Harugei Malchut).

He was the rosh yeshivah and head of the beit din in Sichnin.

R' Chanina was punished for pronouncing the Tetragrammaton in public, and his wife was punished for not preventing him for doing so.

Rabbi Chanina was sentenced to death by the Romans, for teaching Torah and holding public gatherings despite the government's prohibition against it. He was burnt at the stake on the 27 of Sivan, wrapped in the Torah scroll that he had been holding when he was arrested. Tufts of wool soaked in water were placed over his heart so that his death should be prolonged. His daughter Beruriah cried out, "Father, that I should see you like this!"

So, Rabbi Chanina was sentenced to death by the Romans, for using God's divine name in public speech, teaching Torah and holding public gatherings despite

the g o v e r n m e n t 's p r o h i b i t i o n against it:

1. No Jewish God

2. No Jewish Scriptures

3. No assemblies

The problem with the YAHWEH form

Pay attention pro-YAHWEH pronunciation "divine name" groups!!! The bisyllabic YH-WH broke the natural form of the HW. So the divine name is thisyllabic: Y-HW-H

"If one understands that the four Hebrew letters represent four vowels, rather than four consonants, then the Name is best represented by the four sounds I-A-U-E or ee-ah-oo-eh. If you pronounce these rapidly you will get the combined sound in English. This appears to agree with Josephus [1st-century Jewish historian], with the Greek transliterations, and the 500 BC Murashu text. It would be written in English as YAHUEH, not strictly YAHWEH, which is the consonantal form. The problem with this proposal is the question of MEANING! These four sounds appear to mean NOTHING in Hebrew, and they lose their connection with the verb hayah, "to be," upon which the Divine Name appears to be based. Hebrew names are supposed to carry meaning, how much more the case with the very Name of God! (...)
"The combination YE-HO-AH makes better grammatical sense. In Hebrew "YE" represents the future or imperfect of the verb "to be," "HO" represents the present, while "AH" represents the past. In other words, this form of the Name would have specific meaning and not be merely a repetition of vowel sounds. Quite literally YEHOAH means "shall/is/was" -- that is, the Eternal, the Ever-living One who will be, is and always was. This is WHY I prefer the pronunciation YEHOAH, or even the more popular form, YEHOVAH, since it clearly reflects this profound meaning. YAH would then be the contracted, or shortened form, of this full Name, taking the first and last sounds together" (Restoring Abrahamic Faith, Genesis 2000, Charlotte, NC. 28256. 1993, p. 11).

What means literally this Arabic word "Allahum"?

I put this question to understand the right meaning of word elohim. It is clear that this is a composed word> el + oh + im
I need help, please.

"The Arabic term used for invoking God is ‘Allahum ‘ which is very similar to the Hebrew name of God ‘ Elohim ‘, or rather ‘Alohim‘ (the Hebrew alphabet does not have a letter ‘E’). This is more evident if you considered the fact that all three Semitic languages were written originally without vowels."

About the ancient battle lead by Gnostic leaders and their followers against God's divine name

If we compare many gentile Christian Bible translations with the ancient Hebrew biblical manuscripts, we will see that God's divine name - YHWH - was removed from this Bibles. WHY and HOW was this possible?

Let's read some statement regarding a very important thing:

Dr. F. H. A. Scrivener: "In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest".

G.D. Kilpatrick: "Deliberate changes in all text types appear to antedate A.D. 200... Tatian is the last author to make deliberate changes. The vast majority of deliberate changes were older then A.D. 200. They came into being in the period A.D. 50-200"

Ernest Cadman Colwell: "The first two centuries witnessed the creations of the large number of variations known to scholars today. In the manuscripts of the New Testament most variations, I believe, were made deliberately."

Who was this "last" author Tatian who make deliberate changes in the New Testament's manuscripts, and who were that before him?
Tatian was the pupil and student of Justin "The Gnostic". Justin was a pagan philosopher, from I-II century, who became a Christian and still remain a philosopher. But unfortunately after his conversion to Christianity, he holds some strange views, believing that God is a nameless God, who has no name and can not have a name. From where was this belief? From Plato via the Gnostics.

Who were this Gnostics?

If we read 1John 2:19 and 1 John 4:5 we will see that in the last part of the first century, some believers left the apostolic assemblies and teach distorted things about some Christian teachings. They became known under the name the Gnostics. Wanting to be popular in the worlds eyes, they stated to mix Christianity, with pagan concepts, taken from pagan philosophers (Hermes, Plato, etc.).

We have also a very interesting statement from an early so called "Church Father" Dionysius:
"When my fellow Christians invited me to write letters to them I did so. These the devil's apostles (plural) have filled with tares, taking away some things and adding others. For them the woe is reserved. Small wonder then if some have dared to tamper even with the word of the Lord Himself, when they have conspired to mutilate my own humble efforts".

Please remember what he wrote about this very evil people: "taking away some things and adding others"

Tatian's, II century "Diatessaron" was so corrupted (eliminating the genealogies and all passages referring to Lord Jesus's Jewish descent) that in later years a bishop of Syria threw out 200 copies.

So, they created a so confusion in the biblical texts, that F.C. Kenyon must wrote:
"At the first each book had its single original text, which it is now the object of criticism to recover, but in the first two centuries this original Greek text disappeared under a mass of variants, created by errors, by conscious alterations, and by attempts to remedy the uncertainties thus created."

A famous example of corruption!

Codex Sinaiticus, Syriacus, Sahidicus and other witnesses: In 2Peter 1:1 the text say Lord (in nomina sacra on CSin) and Savior, not God and Savior
So, no wonder WHY and HOW they have succeeded to change even the divine name of God!
Time always tells the truth!

Questions about God's Name, regarding the New Testament

Because we have no early copies of the New Testaments with God's divine name inside, this could be a sure proof that in the Lord Jesus time, the divine name was forgotten - as some say?

Was pronounced the divine name in the time of our Lord Jesus?

"In the temple they pronounced the DIVINE NAME as it is written, but in the country by its substitute." Mishna - Tamid 7:2, Talmud - Tamid 33b

"Our Rabbis taught: Ten times did the high priest pronounce the NAME on that day: Three times at the first confession, thrice at the second confession, thrice in connection with the he-goat to be sent away, and once in connection with the lots." Talmud - Yoma 39b

"Any benediction in which the DIVINE NAME is not mentioned is no benediction." Talmud - Berachoth 40b

"There are many other references, but these few demonstrate that the Tetragrammaton was pronounced during and before the times of Jesus. Thus, the assertion that "the Tetragrammaton was not pronounced at all" is pure myth - an habitual occurrence in modern biblical scholarship - yet, it is a myth that is unfortunately perpetuated ad nauseam, in spite of conclusive evidence to the contrary."

"During the Second Temple period the TETRAGRAMMATON was pronounced during the ceremony of blessing the people by the priests and in other prayers, but only in the Temple. Outside of it the substitution Adonai (Lord) was used." The Classic Midrash - Tannaitic Commentary On The Bible, Reuven Hammer, Paulist Press, p 168

Important note!
"but only in the Temple" is not fully correct. Exist others who pronounced it also outside the Temple. This is also a myth that is unfortunately perpetuated ad nauseam, in spite of conclusive evidence to the contrary.

See the great example:

Rabbi Chanina was punished for pronouncing the Tetragrammaton in public, and his wife was punished for not preventing him for doing so.
This was in the second century, after the jewish revolt ended in 135 (according to the book Aboda Zara).
He was sentenced to death by the Romans, for teaching Torah and holding public gatherings despite

the g o v e r n m e n t 's p r o h i b i t i o n against it:

1. No Jewish God

2. No Jewish Scriptures

3. No assemblies

Time always tells the truth!

Stop the divine name?

Questions in connection:

"You have not shown any single statement of Jesus in which YHVH will fit! Jesus is not recorded as using the YHVH word ever. That has no meaning for you apparently. Why not follow Jesus? Why is this so difficult? x".

Response (TLR):

Whose voice is in Revelation 19:5 compared with Revelation 3:21? Father's or Son's voice? And if that person - who have this voice - agrees to use the divine name in worship, compare with Revelation 19:6?

"To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne." Revelation 3:21

"And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great." Revelation 19:5

"And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Hallelu Yah! For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth." Revelation 19:6

Why this person from the throne - which is the King Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, don't stop them: "Stop, stop, you people! Don't use the divine name! Is not important! Is not important! Is not important! Say only Lord, God, Father, Almighty, etc..! Only the divine name not!

Anyway, the argument that Lord Jesus not used the divine name ever is not sure, cause we don't have the original manuscripts. So, this is just hypothetical.

"Alleluia-Hebrew, "Praise ye Jah," or Jehovah: here first used in Revelation, whence Ellicott infers the Jews bear a prominent part in this thanksgiving."

YHWH: divine name's "vowels"
Yes, „vowels” (you read that right).

Latin differs from the Hebrew alphabet and has a special player. The "official" Hebrew alphabet has only consonants, 22 in number. However, these consonants are a kind of group of letters, and they have the voice itself, such as groups of letters from Romanian: ce, ci, ge, gi, che, chi, ghe, ghi. Each letter in Hebrew has a triple meaning: a graphic sign representing a sound, a number and an idea.
Here are the Hebrew alphabet letters:
alef, bet, ghimel, dalet, he, waw, zain, het, tet, iod, kaf, lamed, mem, nun, sameh, ain, pe, ţadi, kof, reş, şin, taw

Sometimes the Hebrew consonants, may take the form of vowels only!

These are: א aleph, ה he, ו waw and י yod

Everywhere we read the divine name (Tetragramma) it is composed of "four consonants". Some write Tetragramma as YHWH and others YHVH. Which form then is correct? In terms of the old Hebrew, Biblical Hebrew, YHWH form would be appropriate, because the consonant V does not exist in ancient Hebrew. But considering that in modern Hebrew there is a consonant V (e.g. „Hava nagila ve-nismeha" means „Let's rejoice and be happy"), thus YHVH is correct too. But are these letters really consonants? Apparently, "yes", but in terms of pronunciation "no." Let's see why ...

Josephus Flavius, the great Jewish historian of the first century, wrote that the divine name was composed of four vowels! Reading over all, the divine name is composed of four consonants, I wondered whether it may have been a wrong rendering of a copyist, perhaps he copied something wrong from that book of Josephus ... But, one evening, reading some documentary in Hungarian -- about the old and contemporary Hebrew grammar - it was confirmed that Josephus wrote truth. So there is no wrong translation of a copyist, as I wondered, because Josephus' testimony is in harmony with the linguists. And as a big surprise, the testimony of Josephus is in harmony with the pagan priest Sanchuniathon of Beirut (IX century BC), which was informed by a priest named Jerubbaal, a Hebrew. Sanchuniathon (via Eusebius [104] (c. 315)) wrote; that the name of the God of the Hebrews was "ֹוץ‏"(Ieuō): - So, only vowels, as Josephus writes.

The question is whether Sanchuniaton properly transliterated the divine name or not? However, what he wrote, confirms Josephus.

Josephus had to know, for he was from the nation of priests. So the divine name YHWH not contains „consonants and vowels", only just vowels, called "matres lectionis", meaning "mothers of reading".
Besides these two witnesses (Sanchuniathon and Josephus), we have other early witnesses who „witness" that the divine name has vowels only:

ֹןץ‏ (Iouō, Koine: [juo]): Pistis Sophia [102] (2nd cent.)

ֹון‎ (Ieou, Koine: [Jeu]): Pistis Sophia [102] (2nd cent.)

ֹוחשןץ (ie-ee-ōoua): Pistis Sophia [103] (2nd cent.)

ֹוש (Ieōa): Hellenistic magical texts [105] (2nd-3rd Centuries), M. Kyriakakes [106] (2000)

I put these examples not because I support magic, we do not recommend using the divine name in this matter. These are simply resources. Besides, using (black/dark) magic is an abomination in the eyes of God.

All these early "witnesses" (Sanchuniathon, Josephus and Hellenistic magical texts) "confess" that the construction of the divine name's phonetics have vowels only.
