Default What about YHWH or YAHWEH?

I own an Authorized King James Version and is the only Bible I trust, as I believe all modern versions are indeed corrupt. I'm a new believer (having been saved for a few months now) and have a question for you brothers and sisters of the faith. I know that the King James Version tells us that the name of the Father is JEHOVAH. Still, I can't help but wonder about the other names I heard other people call the Father. What about YHWH or YAHWEH? Do any of you have any idea why the translators decided not to acknowledge these supposed names of the Father? Are these names even valid?

Thank very much my brother in Christ! I found this article so very useful for helping clear my doubts. Thanks the Lord you and brother Stephen directed me towards this useful information. I see that now I have some apologizing to do to my Lord later during prayer for doubting his Holy Name! Thank you and God Bless.

In Jesus' Name,

Rolando

The Name is YHVH (YEHOVAH or JEHOVAH) instead of YHWH. Anyway, the article http://av1611.com/kjbp/ridiculous-kj...hova-YHVH.html cleared the Name issue up for me.

Hebrew doesn't have a hard-J sound. It is pronounced with a Y sound. "Joshua" is pronounced "yeh-ho-shu'-ah", "Jerusalem" is pronounced "yer-u-sha-lah'-im", etc. It's why we pronounce "Hallelujah" (which means "Praise Ya(hovah)/Ya(weh)") as "hah-lay-lu-yah" and not "hah-lay-lu-jeh".

Hi Folks,

Technically, this is not accurate. Sephardic Hebrew does have a hard-J sound.

The major problem with the 'yahweh' paganism is its origin (both the pagan connections in ancient times and its modern fascination to the German criticism schools in recent times - in fact those connections appear likely to be themself connected since the criticism schools are quick to associate Jehovah with pagan deities in other cultures).

Also the wrong number of syllables and its incorrect vowels. Personally I consider Jehovah and Yehovah as largely equivalent, and even Yehowah is along the same lines. ie. If somebody used that pronunciation to match their Hebrew dialect I could accept that fine.

Shalom,
Steven Avery
