God that made the world and all things in it, He is Lord of heaven and earth,
He gives to all life, and breath, and all things; that they should seek the Lord,
and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us:
For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; (Hec 17:24-28)

El Dios que hizo el mundo y todas las cosas que en él hay, es el Señor del cielo y de la tierra,
El es quien da a todos vida y aliento y todas las cosas, para que busquen a Dios,
aunque ciertamente no está lejos (de cada uno de nosotros).
Porque en El vivimos, y nos movemos, y somos; (Hec 17:24-28)

I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord,
thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Then shall you call upon me, and you shall go and pray to me, and I will hear you.
And you shall seek Me, and find Me, when you shall search for Me with all your heart. (Jer 29:11-13)

Yo sé los pensamientos que tengo acerca de vosotros, dice Jehová,
pensamientos de paz, y no de mal, para daros el fin que esperáis.
Entonces Me invocaréis, e iréis y oraréis a Mí, y Yo os oiré:
Y me buscaréis y hallaréis, porque Me buscaréis de todo vuestro corazón. (Jer 29:11-13)

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. (Mat 6:9-13, Lu 11:2-4)

Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo, sea santificado Tu nombre.
Venga Tu reino; sea hecha Tu voluntad, como en el cielo, así también en la tierra.
El pan nuestro de cada día dánoslo hoy,
y perdónanos nuestros pecados, como nosotros perdonamos, a todos los que nos deben;
y no nos metas en tentación, mas líbranos de mal. Amén. (Mat 6:9-13, Lu 11:2-4)

How to call God’s Name?

In the Old Testament, the two most common names for God are Elohim and Yahweh. The word Yahweh appears nearly 7000 times in the O.T.! Now I realize what some of you are thinking: “If it’s so common, how come I’ve never seen Yahweh in my Old Testament?”

Well, that’s because of a translation convention. I would wager that the foreword to your Bible explains that the word YHWH, the consonants for Yahweh, is rendered LORD (all capital letters). The Hebrew letters yod-heth-waw-heth are also called the Tetragrammaton (Greek for four letters).

Of course such a convention is confusing, first because LORD isn’t a translation of Yahweh at all, and secondly because there is already a word for Lord, Adonai. I admit that when I read the Bible, I easily miss the subtle distinction between LORD and Lord. So what’s the origin of this odd convention?

Over the course of time, when the Jews saw YHWH, they spoke Adonai — out of reverence for the name of God. Others would simply say ha-Shem (the name). Yet there’s no verse in the Bible forbidding our use of the word Yahweh.

Yet even if we say Yahweh, pronouncing the Hebrew properly, are we sure we’re on the right track? Actually, Yahweh isn’t so much a name as one of his attributes. Yahweh comes from the verb to be, implying something about his (absolute?) existence. (If you are a website member, be sure to listen to the podcast on The Name of God.) We close with a few assorted thoughts:

  • Elí, Elí, lema sabachthaní (Ἠλί, Ἠλί, λιμὰ σαβαχθανί), or My God, My God, why have you forsaken me has the word El (God), a shorter form of Elohim. The ‘í’ after the word means my. Thus Elí is my God.
  • Hallelujah is composed of two words, the verb for praise and Jah, which is a shortened form of Yahweh. (The  J is pronounced like a Y.) For a great article by Jerry Maday, click Hallelujah. In Latin, the word became alleluia, from the N.T. Greek ‘allēlouïá. Jerry also has a great piece on Selah, the unusual word that appears in some of the Psalms.
  • Consider the name of God in Isaiah 44:6, “the first and the last” — equivalent to Jesus’ name, “the Alpha and the Omega,” in Revelation 21:6. He is the one who is, has always been, and always will be!

JESUS! Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
