God’s Name

When one does more research, they find that there are a multitude of names of places and people–even names of kings–that have meanings that center around God. These names begin with Jeho in English (Yeho in Hebrew) and some even include God’s whole name: Jehovah.

Jehozabad = “Jehovah has endowed”
Jehohanan = “Jehovah has graced”
Jehoiada = “Jehovah knows”
Jehoiachin = “Jehovah establishes”
Jehoiakim = “Jehovah raises up”
Jehoiarib = “Jehovah contends”
Jehonadab = “Jehovah is willing”
Jonathan or Jehonathan = “Jehovah has given”
Joseph (Yĕhowceph) = “Jehovah (Yehovah) has added”
Jehoadah = “Jehovah has adorned”
Jehoaddan = “Jehovah delights”
Jehozadak or Josedech = “Jehovah is righteous”
Jehoram or Joram = “Jehovah is exalted”
Jehosheba = “Jehovah has sworn”
Jehoshabeath = “Jehovah is an oath”
Joshua or Jehoshua = “Jehovah is salvation”
Jehoshaphat = “Jehovah has judged”
Joel = “Jehovah is God”

Jehovah-jireh = “Jehovah sees”
Jehovah-nissi = “Jehovah is my banner”
Yĕhovah tsidqenuw = “Jehovah is our righteousness”
Jehovah-shalom = “Jehovah is peace”
Jehovah-shammah = “Jehovah is there”

And these are just the people who were important enough to be mentioned in the Bible. Doubtless there were other people that also had these names. We cannot changed God’s name to Yahweh without changing every one of these names–and even the name of Jerusalem itself! (Jehovah-shammah = “Jehovah is there”)

One last thing—in the KJV, God is referred to as ‘Jah’. This is a CONTRACTION. When you have a contraction, you have taken letters out of the middle. To wit: J ehov ah  Jah.

Newer versions incorrectly translate this as ‘Yah’ because they have CHANGED the J (Hebrew ‘Jod’) to a Y!! This is part of their plan, to change the Tetragrammaton, in order to attempt to change God’s name to Yahweh in the newer (corrupt) Bible translation.

To see what the Hebrew alphabet really is, look at the section headings of Psalms 119 in an AUTHORIZED King James Bible.


Psalm 119 in Authorized King James Bible--notice the Hebrew alphabet letters: JHVH NOT YHWH!!

Psalm 119 in Authorized King James Bible–notice the Hebrew alphabet letters: JHVH (Jod He Vau He) NOT YHWH!!

(No, I am not a Jehovah’s Witness.)

God’s name is not ‘Yahweh’!  You are being led astray!!

‘And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said [to] this day, In the mount of the LORD [Yehovah] it shall be seen.’  (Genesis 22:14)

‘And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by [the name of] God Almighty [El Shaddai], but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.’  (Exodus 6:3)

‘Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD [Yehovah], and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it [is] yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.’  (Judges 6:24)

‘That [men] may know that thou, whose name alone [is] JEHOVAH, [art] the most high over all the earth.’  (Psalms 83:18)

‘Behold, God [is] my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH [is] my strength and [my] song; he also is become my salvation.’  (Isaiah 12:2)

‘Trust ye in the LORD [Yehovah] for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH [is] everlasting strength’  (Isaiah 26:4)

‘[It was] round about eighteen thousand [measures]: and the name of the city from [that] day [shall be], The LORD [is] there [Yehovah shammah] (Ezekiel 48:35)


Every place in your KJV Bible that you see LORD, or GOD, (in all caps) it is the Hebrew name Yehovah, which in English is pronounced ‘Jehovah’.  You will find this name 6,519 times in your Bible!  A variation (Yehovih) is found 305 times.

(Strong’s = H3068)  Yehovah

Jehovah = “the existing One”

1) the proper name of the one true God


(Strong’s = H3069)  Yehovih

1) Jehovah – used primarily in the combination ‘Lord Jehovah’


(Strong’s = H3070)  Yĕhovah yireh

Jehovah-jireh = “Jehovah sees”

1) symbolic name given by Abraham to Mount Moriah in commemoration of the interposition of the angel of Jehovah who prevented the sacrifice of Isaac and provided a substitute


(Strong’s = H3071)  Yĕhovah nicciy

Jehovah-nissi = “Jehovah is my banner”

1) the name given by Moses to the altar which he built in commemoration of the discomfiture of the Amalekites


(Strong’s = H3072)  Yĕhovah tsidqenuw

Jehovah is our righteousness

1) a sacred name symbolically applied to Jerusalem and the Messiah


(Strongs = H3073)  Yĕhavah shalowm

Jehovah-shalom = “Jehovah is peace”

1) the name of a sacred altar built by Gideon in Ophrah


(Strongs = H3074)  Yĕhovah shammah

Jehovah-shammah = “Jehovah is there”

1) a symbolic name for Jerusalem


The next 19 words in Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon (H3075-H3093) are all names of people that are inclusive of God’s name (such as: Joseph = “Jehovah has added”)


‘Yahweh’ is not in your Bible once. Don’t believe me?  Check it out for yourself.




I strongly suspect ‘Yahweh’ is just another name for the moon God that was worshiped in the land of Canaan (and now goes by the name ‘Allah’ among the Muslims).  Lucifer has MANY names.  Even one he wants Christians to call him: Yahweh.

Lucifer is all about precision in form and ritual (think witch’s potions, incantations, specific dates and times, etc.).  Jehovah wants men to call on Him in spirit and in truth.  He can discern our hearts.  He knows when we are calling out to Him, even if we WERE to get His name wrong.  Don’t get caught up in the false, fear-based, ‘sacred names’ movement.
