YHVH Is The Eternal Name
Over a Thousand Hebrew Documents Have Been Discovered with these Vowel Markers, yet the debate still continues over the correct pronunciation.
Before January 2018, nobody really had enough evidence to stand on, most people pronounced YHVH, Yahweh, and others, Jehovah. Then came Nehemia Gordon’s research of Hebrew Bible manuscripts found in library’s around the world.
Nehemia discovered more than enough evidence showing the above vowel markers, consistently pointing to Yehovah, beginning from right to left, “e” “o” “a.”
This much evidence would normally be indisputable, but backlash aimed at Nehemia’s research continues. The argument being, the scribes would never put the correct vowel markers.
If intentional deception isn’t enough to confuse you there is also a debate over the V, U, W sound. Was Yahovah previously pronounced Yahuah or Yahowah?
All this commotion just makes me wonder why we’re just now learning about the pronunciation of these four Sacred Hebrew letters?
Why Did Bible Translator’s Remove “YHVH?”
YHVH is written in the Hebrew Scriptures 6,830 times. The more that people, like me, learn their translations have replaced “YHVH” with “LORD,” they will question why and want the Name restored.
There is a reason Jewish Rabbi’s have made it a point to keep the pronunciation of these four sacred letters a secret but This goes against YHVH’s Words,
The superstition that God’s Name is too Holy to Speak is not found in God’s Word. How else will His Name be proclaimed in all the earth?
Judah adapted several Babylonian customs during their 70 year captivity in ancient Babylon, 586-716 B.C. It is my guess that one was not pronouncing the Name.
We all need to check everything we believe to the plume-line of Torah.
Jesus, YHVH’s Salvation, Made The Name Known
As of the latest research these four Hebrew letters, referred to as the tetragrammaton, are pronounced “Y’hovah.” This is our Creator’s Eternal Name, Exodus 3:15.
Does it Matter?
Before we had evidence of these documents I would have agreed that it doesn’t matter how we pronounce the Name. The important thing is that we know what it means, He Is, He Was, He Will Be or He Exists.
I used to pronounce The Name by saying the four Hebrew letters, Yud, Hay, Vav, Hay. Before I knew His Name He knew me. I know He has even answered my prayer when I cried out the word, “Help.”
Now that we are hearing the claims that the correct pronunciation of His Name Is known, it is our job to test it, like the Berean’s, to the original Hebrew Torah and Prophets, Acts 17:11.
My additional research found the name “Yahweh” was invented by Heinrich Friedrich Wilhelm Gesenius (3 February 1786 – 23 October 1842) a German orientalist, Lutheran, and Biblical critic. He is credited, among other things, with the reconstructed pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton, “Yahweh”.
