WHO OR WHAT IS YAHUAH?

IS IT IN THE BIBLE?

If you have never heard of YAHUAH, we encourage you to look up Strong's #H3068 which shows the meaning of this Hebrew word. In most English translations of the Bible, you will see this word or name transliterated as "The LORD," and it's found over 6,000 times in Scripture. 6828 times Bible translators replaced YHWH and YAH with LORD or GOD in most English translations. They also replaced most Hebrew names that had YAH or YAHU in them with English names. Example: Yahudah was replaced with Judah.

The Most High's Title vs. His Name

Would you agree that "the LORD" is a title and not a name? It may interest you that so many Scriptures say "sing to the LORD" followed by "praise His Name." (See the bottom of this page for multiple scriptures where it says to call on the Most High by His name.)
   
Many songs are written about the "Name" of God being a Strong Tower, a Name we can trust. Name, name, name. Yet, His Name is never mentioned. The King James inserted "The LORD" (Lord in all caps) to represent or rather to replace the name of the living Elohim or God!
  
In the Hebrew text, we do not see "The LORD" or its equivalent. We instead see YHWH or WHUH. This is often referred to or pronounced as YAHWEH by some. But let's take a closer look at the letters YHWH.

The Hebrew Spelling of יְהֹוָה (YHUH or YHWH)

Torah or The Old Testament was originally written in the Hebrew (Abry) language—and some even argue that the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew too and not Greek, although no copy of the original New Testament manuscript in the Hebrew language has been found to-date. Strong's #H3068 references the Hebrew Word יְהֹוָה. That word is made up of four letters:

  • YOD — יְ
  • HEY — ה
  • WAW/UAU — וָ
  • HEY — יְ
Tettagram
Letter Modern Paleo Pictographic Picto Meaning
YOD יְ Arm and closed hand Work, Throw, Worship
HEY ה Man w/ arms raised Look, Reveal, Breath
WAW / UAU וָ Tent Peg Add, Secure, Hook
HEY ה Man w/ arms raised Look, Reveal, Breath
behold nail behold hand

MEANING OF THE NAME

While the pronunciation of this word/name is not 100% known (in terms of how it was pronounced in ancient times), there is no debate of what the four letters are in Hebrew.

  

Side Note: There is a similarity between the letters U and W because the W is a relatively new letter that developed over time that was formerly comprised of two Us or a “double U” and makes the oooo sound. Yah-ooo-ah.)

The word Judah is a great example

To put it in perspective further, the same four letters of our Creator's Name (YHWH) are also found in the word Judah. Judah is a common word that most people agree on how it's spelled and pronounced, in both English and Hebrew. In Hebrew, the word Judah is pronounced as Yahudah or Yah-ooo-dah). The only difference in the Hebrew language between YAHUAH (Strong's H3068) and YAHUDAH (Strong's H3063) is one letter. The word Yahudah has an extra letter, which is the “D” or the Dalet (Dal). Yahu”D”ah. Take out the “D” from Yahu”D”ah, and you have Yahuah. Yah--oo--ah.

Does the Name of the Most High Matter?

You might be thinking, "So what!" Does it truly matter what we call the Most High? Why can't we simply refer to the Most High as God? Well, you certainly can. But you may want to avoid this once you realize that the Bible instructs us to call upon His NAME (not his title). This begins to make it more concerning that most English translations of the Bible replace the Father's Name with the title "LORD" or "God." There are many "lords" and "gods." Some even alledge that the Name of the Most High is too holy to say or pronounce, and they even claim this is why the scribes wrote the name without any vowels, to avoid saying it.

 

This of course is all nonsense once you do even a basic study of the Hebrew language which does not use vowels. The vowels are understood. In today's modern times, the language is frequently written using "Vowel pointing" so that people know what vowels should be pronounced, as many Hebrew speakers do not have a mastery of the language and rely on the vowel pointing to know how to speak or pronounce words in the language.

If we claim to have a personal relationship with our Creator and don't even use His Name, what kind of relationship is that? Do you have any friends and you don’t know their names? If you have a relationship with someone? Often, the first thing you get to know is the person's name.

Not every instance in the Bible that says "lord" is H3068. Usually, if you see lord in small letters, this translates most accurately into English as Master (Adonai). The King James Version (KJV) bible makes the distinction of the two words by writing YHWH as "The LORD" (ALL CAPS), which again is a poor translation at best. There is much more to be said on this topic can fit here, so a link to related videos are below if you'd like to discover and learn more on your own (2 Timothy 3:15; Acts 17:11). Also look in the PREFACE of your Bible, where most translations admit to removing the name!

Surely, if you love the Father, you would agree that our Father's Name is worthy to be praised, as the Word says. That we are to call on His Name, that we bear His Name, that we can do great & mighty things in His name. Just a few of those Scriptures are Jeremiah 29:12-14, Deuteronomy 28:10; 2 Chronicles 7:14; Daniel 9:18–19, Isaiah 42:8. There are many others. Many of the prophets in the Bible have Hebrew names that end with YAHU (part of the Father's Name). Even one of the 10 Commandments warns us not to take His Name in vain.
