I am very grateful to you for allowing the letters on the Hebrew, I thank you for doing this.
Journal readers now know that the short form of the Tetragrammaton is Yahweh, which was a common name in New Testament times. This name is used in 41 different Encyclopedias and Dictionaries that I have researched.
Many deacons and pastors have preached from the black letter, wide margin of the Scofield Study Bible and the KJV of the Nelson Study Bible which this old timer favored.
In the Scofield on page 6 (Genesis, chapter 2) at the study notes at the bottom of the page are the words I AM THE ETERNAL, and then you will see the word Yahwe.
Yah is the sacred name according to the Strongs at #3050 and there you see the Hebrew letters which mean Yahuwah.
In the Nelson Study Bible, we look on page 8 at the study notes and you will find the complete name Yahweh, which is the short form of the Ancient god of the Hebrews according to the World Book Encyclopedia. Even though the KJV does not give his name, he is Yahweh, the ancient god of the Hebrews.
Baal is not his name either, but the Hebrews used to call him that.
In the NJV STudy Bible the name Yahweh is listed at least 159 times as the one who gives salvation, Yahweh knows, Yahweh establishes, Yahweh is gracious, etc.
The NKJV Study Bible also has Yah at Psalms 68:4; Yah rides upon the wind, in the NKJV the old testament study notes Isaiah becomes Yeshayahu, Jeremiah becomes Yirmeyahu.
The Prime Minister of YISRAEL today does not have part of his name in the scriptures, his name is Net-han-Yah-u.
Thank you Mr. Editor.
