n Hebrew thought your name represents your character. The Name of YHVH represents
His Character and every Name of YHVH spell out some of His attributes and it is good to
understand each of His different names so that you can understand Him better. There are
many names used when referring to YHVH. Usually the word "Lord" is used in most Bibles
and prayer books. This can be confusing, as the word "Lord" can be used in many ways, and
can refer to humans as well as to God. In actuality YHVH cannot be completely understood
by human beings and we are all on a journey to learn to know Him better.
We give YHVH titles such as "Lord", "Father", or "King". We give human characteristics or
traits to YHVH, and refer to YHVH as "Him" as though YHVH is a man. While YHVH is usually
known to us a Father, this in some ways limits our true grasp of His essence. Nevertheless, in
order for us to be able to comprehend God we give Him human attributes. This is the best we
can do at this time. YHVH and his Divine Presence, known as the Shechinah, is mostly
hidden to us at this time.
However it is written in Isaiah 6:3: "Holy, Holy, Holy, is YHVH, Master of Legions, the whole
world is filled with His glory." This means that YHVH's presence is truly everywhere, and it is
for us to realize and see it for ourselves.

he personal Four-Letter Name of God is represented by
the letters YHVH in Hebrew. This Name is also referred
to as “the Name of Grace”. The correct pronunciation of
the letter Y in Hebrew is ¨ ¨ "Yode". The letter 7 7 H is
pronounced "Hey", and the letter 1 1 V is pronounced "Vav".
Therefore the letters are correctly pronounced "Yode Hey Vav Hey".
YHVH means; “I AM that I AM” or “the Ever Existing One”, the name given to Moses by
YHVH when the people wanted to know in who’s Name he was sent.
The King James Version bible pronounced the name "Jehovah." Most bible scholars prefer
"Yahweh." The exact pronunciation is in question. Consequently, most English bibles print
"LORD" (all caps) for "Yahweh" and "Lord" (upper and lowercase) for the word Adonai.
We normally use YHVH in the text because there are different pronunciations for this name
because no one knows how to pronounce the name correctly. Some believe not to pronounce
the Name of YHVH because of this fact and substitute it with “HaShem” (the Name) or Adonai
(Lord or Master).
This personal name of YHVH is never really pronounced as it is spelled. There are many
reasons why "The Name" is not used very much today and Jewish people substitute YHVH
with the name HaShem, that means “the Name” or Adonai, that means “Lord or Master”.
The name "Yahweh" is one of the names of YHVH that some people use. It has been our
experience that Jewish People in general do not use this name. YHVH placed His name
nearly 7,000 times in Scripture. I think He wants His Name to be known in all the earth.
His Name found in the Ark of the Covenant
he Name of YHVH is also seen inside the Ark of the Covenant with
the items put in there while there was still a Temple. In the Ark
there were the two Tablets with the Law, the rod of Aaron and a
cup of manna. The manna represents the “yod” which also resembles
the Spirit of YHVH. The Two tablets represents the two “hey’s” and also
the Word of YHVH and Y’shua. The Rod of Aaron represents the “vav”
and also man (6). Looking at all of this it gives us the teaching that
inside the mercy of the Father (mercy seat) is the Word (tablets) and the
Spirit (manna) to guide (rod) man so that he can walk according to His
ways. It is amazing to see that in the Name of YHVH and the teachings connected to each of
the individual letters, gives us understanding of what He is all about, what He has done and
what He will come to do at His second coming. All of Scripture is about the Messiah; His firs
coming and then His second and that’s why He is called the Word of YHVH that became
¨ ¨1 1¨ ¨x x - A Ad do on na ai i
Adonai is spelled ADNY or "x x Aleph ¨ ¨ Dalet 1 1 Nun ¨ ¨ Yode".
Adoni means: firm, Strong, Master and Lord. Now that you know the personal Name of
God, we will explain why most Jewish people use the name Adonai when they pray. Adonai is
the substitute they use instead of YHVH and it means “Lord” or “Master”. The Hebrew word
The name Adonai refers to God's Attribute of Mercy, and when we pray we are generally
asking for help or for mercy. Because we are human and we make mistakes, we need God's
Attribute of Mercy.
C C¨ ¨7 7* *x x - E El lo oh hi im m
The word Elohim is spelled " x x Aleph * * Lamed 7 7 Hey ¨ ¨ Yode C C Mem". This name refers to
God's Attribute of Justice. It also means "Ruler", "Lawgiver", and "Judge of the World."
Elohim has three distinct meanings; Messenger, Judge and King and this depict the
three attributes of the Messiah in His engagement with man. He came the First Time as the
Messenger, to bring the “Good News” of Repentance and Salvation. He will cone the Second
Time as the Judge where He will come to collect His Bride and reject all those who rejected
The Third Time He will be revealed as the King of kings and this will be after the 1000 year
peace when the New Jerusalem will come down to the earth and then He will dwell with man
forever and rule over humanity as the one and only King.
The name Elohim, which is pronounced "Eloheem", is
also used quite a bit in the Bible. This is Hebrew
translated as “God” in all the English Bibles. Elohim
together with His angels and His Heavenly Court
System represent His Righteousness and Judgement.
The Four-Letter Name is a combination of both Justice
and Mercy. Please remember that both of the names
Adonai and Elohim are Holy Names, and some people
will not directly pronounce these names either.
* *C C7 7 - H Ha as sh he em m
hem consists of a * * “Shin” and a C C “Mem.
“HaShem” means “the Name”. Most of the time the name HaShem or Hashem is used to
refer to God. We use this instead of pronouncing any of the personal and more holy names.
“HaShem” or “the Name” and the Jews use this because they do not want to pronounce His
Name as Yahweh. Looking at the Name “Shem” it consists of a * * “Shin” and a C C “Mem”, the
“shin”is on the right side (spiritual) and the “Mem” is on the left side (flesh). The teaching
regarding ”Shin” is that it represents fire and the “Mem” represents water. The water and fire
also shows us the two judgments, one already happened which was the flood at the time of
Noah, and the second Judgment will take place at the Second Coming of the Messiah where
He will Judge the earth and will purge or cleanse it by fire. Water and fire are also at war with
each other because water puts out fire and fire evaporates water, this shows YHVH’s mercy
at the time of Judgment.
Looking at the physical placements we see that the “fire” is spiritual and a
fire always burns upwards. The water is fleshly and always runs
downwards. This also symbolizes the Word and that we have to humble
our selves to receive His Water or His Word which is the essence of Life.
Bearing the Name of YHWH means that you are part of the Kingdom and
this related with the statement John made when he said that he baptizes
with water but Y’shua will baptize with the Spirit and with fire. This
restores your spiritual side and you will connect to YHVH and you will
“connect upwards”. In Joh_3:5 He said that one must be born from water
and the Spirit to be part of the Kingdom. The Spirit relates to the fire and spiritual aspect of
the Name and the water refers to the bodily baptism by water. We see two events
represented by the name; baptism by water and by fire (Spirit).
* *x x - E El l
El is the name that consists of the letters; x x Aleph * * Lamed.
El means; God, God-like one, Mighty one, strength and power. El is also used as one of
the names of God and is also the short form of Elohim. It is translated in the Bible as YHVH
and describes the eternal and infinite spirit, the creator, and the sovereign of the universe”,
and is used together with many names. The names Isra, Dani, Michael, Gabri,
Rapha, Ari, and many others contain this name within them.
¸ ¸1 1* *7 7¨ ¨ - Y Y’ ’s sh hu ua a
Y’shua is spelled in Hebrew; ¨ ¨ "Yode" or "Yud". The letter 7 7 H is pronounced "Hey" or "Hay",
and the letter * * S or “Shin” and the letter 1 1 V is pronounced "Vav", and the letter ¸ ¸ A or
Y’shua means “YHVH is my Salvation”. It can be
pronounced, Yeh-shoo-ah or “Y’hoshua” or Yahshua.
Yeshua or Yoshua or Yahshua are based on same root
word (yud-shin-’ayin— ¸ ¸* *¨ ¨ ) which means: “He will
save.” In the TANAKK (O.T.) nine persons and a city
have the name Yeshua, usually transliterated as “Jeshus”
or “Jeshuah.” In the Septuagint and the B’RIT HADASHAH
(the New Testament) the name was brought over into
Greek as Iesous and then into English as “Jesus” which comes from the Greek word Iosous
that means “God of Healing”.
The Messiah of Israel, Yeshua from Natzeret. In modern Hebrew Yeshua’s name is
pronounced and written “Yeshu,” which may have been the ancient pronunciation in the Galil
(Galilee area). Ye-shu-’ah — salvation; used in a word play on Yeshua’s name at Luke 2:30
Y’ho-shu-a (Joshua)— leader of the people of Israel, led the conquest of Eretz-Yisrael (land
of Israel) after Moshe’s (Moses) death.

hey believe that there are seventy names of YHVH. The number seventy with a head
above them, also corresponds to the seventy Jews who descended to Egypt with Jacob
at their head. Similarly the Great Sanhedrin or High Court that existed during the time of
the First and Second Temples consisted of seventy judges with a nassi or prince at their
head. The original group of Elders also consisted of seventy leaders with Moses as their
head. Jerusalem is also known by seventy names.
