Please be patient as the sound files load Because it is composed from the four Hebrew letters YodHeyVavand Heyit is also referred to as the "Tetragrammaton," which simply means "the four letters. God simply answered Moses, "ehyeh-asher-ehyeh": Everything else is contingent being that derives existence from Him.
In Himself, God is beyond all "predications" or attributes of language: He is the Source and Foundation of all possibility of utterance and thus is beyond all definite descriptions.
I am called according to my actions. Elohim is the Name given for God as the Creator of the universe Gen 1: On account of this, the Masoretes ensured that the Name of the LORD would not be taken in vain by substituting the vowel marks for Adonai and putting them under the letters in the running text this is called Qere [what is to be read] as opposed to Ketiv [what is to be written].
The Hebrew text, then, contains the Ketiv but uses the vowels of the Qere and this has led to the obviously incorrect pronunciation of the Name as "Jehovah" in older English, "J" had a "y" sound.
It was later speculated that perhaps the Masoretes reversed the vowels for Adonai when applied to the letters in the running text, so some attempted to "correct" the pronunciation by pronouncing the Name as "Yahoveh" or "Yahveh.
Note that Yahweh is most likely also an incorrect transliteration, since there is no "w" sound in Hebrew. The Name Since ancient Hebrew did not use any vowel markings, the actual pronunciation of the sacred Name is simply not known. The Jewish tradition is to not pronounce the sacred Name at all, but to substitute the word Adonai "my Lord" in its place.
Thus, when reading Torah, you do not attempt to vocalize the Name, but say Adonai instead. Gnosticism and the Name There are some people who, despite the educated uncertainty of careful scholarship and Jewish tradition, pretend to "truly" understand the phonetics of the Sacred Name and offer to "restore it" to those of us willing to be initiated into their secret knowledge.
For example, there are some who want to use a "w" for the Vav in the Name, and then permutate the nikkudot vowels to find a favored reading.
This is a dubious practice, however, since even our English idea of "w" is laden with cultural biases, and no practicable equivalence can reasonably be made. Language, in other words, is about meaning, not about technique.
Frankly, I consider the search for a conjuration of the Sacred Name to be a form of gnostic occultism, symptomatic of people who elevate spiritual technique and "abracadabra" above the shared meaning of the "Presence of God.
Perhaps this explains why we have such a plethora of various Names and Titles of God given in the Tanakh.
Like poets, the sacred writers sought for various words to express the Reality that stands behind the glyphs. But once you get ahold of the Reality or rather, the Reality gets ahold of youthe words you use to express your awe will always be limited and seem inadequate.
The Morphology of the Name The earliest forms of the sacred Name appear in proto-Hebrew script a script that is closely related to ancient Phoenician script. This earlier form of the Name was used until Ezra the scribe converted the ancient script to Aramaic morphology ketav merubawhich is now the form used in Torah scrolls: For each name in the list below, I provide the following information: The Hebrew text for the name The most common English transliteration in italics A definition for the name, references to the Tanakh, and frequency information Additional comments, if applicable.
This is a convention in many Hebrew prayerbooks and dikdukim grammars to avoid casually writing or reading the Sacred Name. When the people heard the Name, they prostrated themselves in deep reverence Yoma 39b. This is often abbreviated simply as.
This Name shows that the Source and Ground of all being is also the personal God and Creator of the entire universe. Sometimes transliterated as "Jehovah Jirah" or "Jehovah Jireh.Moses, the Ark of the Covenant and the Tent of Meeting.
