  91. hw:hoyÒ Yehovah, German pronunciation Jehovah. This is the proper eternal forever name of the one and only true God given to Moses by God on Mt. Siani, Exodus 3:14, meaning I Am that I Am, the existing One, 3068; from hy:h; to be, exist, 1961. God says of this name of His in Exodus 3:15 "This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations." In early Jewish history, Jewish Myth decided saying God’s name was too sacred, Titus 1:13-14. Therefore when reading the Hebrew text they would substitute hw:hoyÒ Yehovah with yn:doa} Adonai meaning my-Lord, 136. As a result, later when Masoretic scholars began to supply vowel points to the consonantal text of Biblical books, they applied the vowels of yn:doa} Adonai to the consonants of hw:hoyÒ resulting in the pronunciation of Yehovah, thus why this translator chooses to translate it Yehovah based on the Masoretic text so as not to lose the meaning of the text to the English reader, and to distinguish it from Adonai meaning Lord and Elohim meaning God. The Hebrew grammarian Page H. Kelley explains regarding this "If there had been no need to avoid pronouncing hwhy, it would most likely have been pointed hw<h]y" and thus read as Yăhvěh. The curious attempt to transliterate the hybrid form hw:hoyÒ as ‘Yehovah’ (or "Jehovah," since "y" was missing in the German language) was not made until the time of the Protestant Reformation." Many times in the Hebrew text the divine names hwIhyÒ yn:doa} appear together meaning Adonai-Yehovah, 136a, Gen 15:2. Since in the Masoretic text it would be awkward to pronounce them together as Adonai-Adonai, Masoretic scholars chose to point hwhy Yehovah with the vowels of !yhiloa> Elohim, 430. This results in the form hwIhoy> Yehovah, later simplified to hw:hyÒ meant to be pronounced as Elohim. This is why translators in the modern english versions translate, incorrectly and thus lose the meaning of the text, Yehovah as LORD when in the Adonai form and as GOD when in the Elohim form, and why they translate hwIhyÒ yn:doa} Adonai Yehovah as Lord GOD. In the Greek Septuagint and in the N.T. Yehovah is expressed: Ejgwv Eijmi Ego Eimee meaning I Am, 1473a, to signify God’s name Yehovah since egwv by itself means I-am. Jesus often used this expression referring to Himself as Yehovah: John 8:24, 8:58, 13:19. From Ejgwv I, 1473, & Eijmiv to be, to exist, 1510. 1/171, 2/114, 118; 42/CD; 26/CD; 28/CD; 31/CD; 37/CD; 67/32.

  92. !yhila> Elohim, meaning: He who is to be worshipped and adored. Hl'a;. 1/28, 26. This is the universal name for God found in other ancient cultures whenever talking about God in a universal sense. Yahweh is the personal name of the Hebrew God describing his person and character. It is a form of the Hebrew verb to be and means I Am that I Am and describes his eternal self sustaining existence. While man previously knew God by Yahweh, God tells Moses in Exodus 6:3 that He had not revealed Himself to man by this name until He delivered the Israelites out of the bondage of Egypt. God did not mean here that He had not made His name, Yahweh, known before, but that he had not made known his character and power by that name manifested through His deliverance of the Israelites out of bondage to Egypt. Before they knew God by the name Yahweh. Now they know the God behind the name Yahweh.

  93. @d,[e delight, pleasure, Gen 2:15, @d'[;. to be soft, loax, pliant. Hithp. to live luxuriously, Neh 9:25, 1/588.
