The divine name of God
, as used in the English language. From the ancient Hebrew, which had no vowels, YHVH
or JHVH. Other languages use similar spellings.
The name Jehovah is so fearsome to some people that they went to the trouble to remove it from His own book. They alternate between the excuses, that we don't know the original pronunciation of God's name, and that God's name is Jesus, when in fact, Jesus
isn't the original pronunciation of Yeshua
's name and that doesn't seem to bother them.
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom", (Ps. 111:10), so fearing His name is fine. However, how is one to gain further wisdom when one fears fear itself more than one fears Jehovah?
