The Tetragrammaton YHWH [YAHUWAH]

This presentation can be viewed in video form below for those who prefer videos:

I AM
Exodus 3:13-14

13 “And Mashah (Moses) said unto Alahyam, Behold, when I come unto the children of Yahsharahal, and shall say unto them, The Alahyam of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them?”

14 “And Alahyam said unto Mashah (Moses), I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Yahsharahal, I AM hath sent me unto you.”

This Is My Name Forever: YHWH
Exodus 3:15

15 “And Alahyam said moreover unto Mashah (Moses), Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Yahsharahal, YHWH Alahyam of your fathers, the Alahyam of Abaraham, the Alahyam of Yatsachaq (Isaac), and the Alahyam of Yaaqob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.”

It is at this place in The Scriptures that the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that is in them tells the world how to spell His name.

AHAYAH ASHAR AHAYAH OR YHWH

There is debate over whether the Creator wants His people to call Him AHAYAH ASHAR AHAYAH as recorded in Exodus 3:14 which translates to I AM THAT I AM or YHWH as recorded in Exodus 3:15.

The numerous number of times YHWH is recorded throughout The Scriptures as opposed to the one time AHAYAH ASHAR AHAYAH is recorded is the evidence that YHWH is what the children of Yahsharahal called the Creator.

YHWH Has Been Preserved

Otherwise, we accuse Mashah (Moses) and the children of Yahsharahal of failing miserably in calling Alahyam by His name. We do not see in The Scriptures that AHAYAH ASHAR AHAYAH is recorded as often as YHWH. Mashah (Moses) and the children of Yahsharahal obeyed the commandment to call the Creator by the name YHWH and has handed YHWH down to us preserved and intact.

Call On The Name YHWH Forever

There are those that say the true name of the Creator is secret and cannot be known. Others say that the true name should not be pronounced, but Exodus 3:15 makes it clear that the Creator intended for His people to call Him by His name throughout their generations and even forever.

Calling the Creator by His name is a commandment, and His true people will obey this commandment. The name YHWH identifies the people of YHWH.

The Four Letters: Tetragrammaton

The four Abary language letters of the tetragrammaton are:

YHWH

Y = Yod

H = Heh

W = Waw

H = Heh

Abary Language Vowels

The Abary language alphabet consist of letters that are all consonants, however, four of those consonants also act as vowels. Those four consonants are:

1. aleph
2. yod
3. heh
4. waw

For the purposes of this study, we can exclude the “aleph” because it is not one of the letters that is part of the name YHWH.

The Abary Letter “Yod”

The “yod” has the following sounds:

Consonant sound = “y” as in “yes”
(when it is the first letter of a name or word)

Vowel sound = “e” as in bee
(in the middle and at the end of a name or word)

For the purposes of this study, we can exclude the vowel sound because the “yod” occurs as the first letter of the name YHWH.

The Deception Of The Letter “J”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J

“The letter ‘j’ originated as a swash character, used for the letter ‘i’ at the end of Roman numerals when following another ‘i’, as in ‘xxiij’ instead of ‘xxiii’ for the Roman numeral representing 23. A distinctive usage emerged in Middle High German.[3] Gian Giorgio Trissino (1478–1550) was the first to explicitly distinguish I and J as representing separate sounds, in his Ɛpistola del Trissino de le lettere nuωvamente aggiunte ne la lingua italiana (“Trissino’s epistle about the letters recently added in the Italian language”) of 1524.[4]”

No “J” In YHWH

“Originally, ‘I’ and ‘J’ were different shapes for the same letter, both equally representing /i/, /iː/, and /j/; but Romance languages developed new sounds (from former /j/ and /ɡ/) that came to be represented as ‘I’ and ‘J’; therefore, English J, acquired from the French J, has a sound value quite different from /j/ (which represents the initial sound in the English word “yet”).”

“The first English-language book to make a clear distinction between ‘i’ and ‘j’ was published in 1634.[5]”

The letter “J” is a recently added letter of the English alphabet. It is impossible for the name of YHWH to have the letter “J” in it because the letter “J” did not exist in ancient times among the Abary language people. The name “Jehovah” or any other form of the name with a “J” is not the correct name of the Creator.

The Abary Letter “Heh”

The “heh” has the following sounds:

Consonant sound = “h” as in “home”
(when it is the first letter of a name or word)

Vowel sound = “ah”
(in the middle and at the end of a name or word)

In the name YHWH, there are two “heh”. One “heh” is the second letter and the other “heh” is the last letter, therefore, they both have the vowel sound of “ah”.

So far, we know the following information about the name YHWH:

Yod=Y
Heh=AH
W=?
Heh=AH

Now, we must find out what sound the “w” (waw) makes and then the name of YHWH will be complete.

The Abary Letter “Waw”

The “waw” has the following sounds:

Waw sounds like “uw” as in the “oo” in “too”
Waw sounds like “ow” as in “tow”.

Do we use the “uw” sound or do we use the “ow” sound in the name of YHWH?

What Is The Correct “Waw” Sound?

YAHUWAH

Or

YAHOWAH

The Word “Ashar”

As mentioned earlier, AHAYAH ASHAR AHAYAH was translated into the English language as “I AM THAT I AM”.

The word “ashar” Strong’s H834 means “that” or “who”.

Abary names have meaning.

Ahayah Ashar Ahayah explains what YHWH means, therefore we should be able to find a word with the meaning of “that” or “who” in one of the two choices.

The two choices are: YAHUWAH or YAHOWAH

The Abary Words “Huw” (H1931) Or “How” (H1930)?

The two choices: YAHUWAH or YAHOWAH

The Abary word “huw” is pronounced hoo and means:

– he, as, for her, him (-self), it. The same, she (herself), such, that (….it), these, they, this, those, which (is), who.

The Abary word “how” is pronounced ho and means:

– alas! Oh!

The correct form of the name of YHWH is YAHUWAH because “huw” means “that” or “who” the same as the word “ashar” means “that” or “who.”

His Name Is “Yah” (H3050)

Psalms 68:4 “Sing unto Alahyam, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name YAH [yod-heh], and rejoice before him.”

YAHUWAH has preserved His name in The Scriptures for those who are willing to accept His name in these last days. He has placed His name in the names of His people and prophets. He has preserved portions of His name in the names of His servants as Yah, Yahuw, and Ya which are shortened forms of His name.

Yaramyah (His name is hidden from view in the form Jeremiah)
Zacharyah (His name is hidden from view in the form Zechariah)
Alyah (His name is hidden from view in the form Elijah or Elias)
Abadyah (His name is hidden from view in the form Obadiah)

The Name Of YAHUWAH Has Meaning

YAH = I AM (Strong’s H3050)

Huw = that or who (Strong’s H1931)

Huwah = be or exist (Strong’s H1933) = I AM

YAHUWAH

=I AM THAT I AM
or
=I AM WHO I AM

Ahayah Ashar Ahayah

=I AM THAT I AM
or
=I AM WHO I AM

Note: The “Waw”

I believe that the “waw” has the following sounds:

Consonant sound = “w” as in “wool”

Vowel sound = “uw” as in the “oo” in “too”

However, those who have been in charge of the Abary alphabet have assigned the “waw” the two distinct vowel sounds of “uw” and “ow”. I will wait on the two witnesses for clarification of this matter. In the meantime, in my translation and transliteration of Abary names and words, I strictly use the “uw” vowel sound rather than the “ow” vowel sound.

Is It Alright To Call Yahuwah “Yah”?

It is not a sin to call Yahuwah by the shortened form of His name “Yah” as Duwad (David) did in Psalms 68:4. Yahuwah will answer to the name Yah. However, the full name that He gave to His people to call Him by is Yahuwah.

Who Are The People Of YAHUWAH?

Yuwchanan (John) 5:43 “I am come in Aby’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.”

Revelation 2:13 “I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Shatan (Satan’s) seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Shatan (Satan) dwelleth.”

Revelation 3:8 “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.”

Yahuwshuwah Amanuwal Mashyach who bears the name of YAHUWAH in his own name came to proclaim the name of YAHUWAH. One characteristic that identifies the people of YAHUWAH is that they are the ones who proclaim the name of YAHUWAH the same as Mashyach did.

We Know By The Power Of YAHUWAH

Yuwchanan (John) 14:26 “But the Comforter, which is the Ruwach HaQaduwsh [power], whom [which G3739] Aby will send in my name, he [it G1565] shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

hos (G3739) {hos} including feminine η he {hay}, and ο neuter ho {ho} probably a primary word (or perhaps a form of the article 3588);; pron AV – which 395, whom 262, that 129, who 84, whose 53, what 42, that which 20, whereof 13, misc 430; 1) who, which, what, that

ekeinos (G1565) {ek-i’-nos} from 1563;; pron AV – that 99, those 40, he 40, the same 20, they 14, misc 38; 251 1) he, she it, etc.

If we understand and believe in the name of YAHUWAH, it is because YAHUWAH has given us understanding through the Ruwach HaQaduwsh (His power). The Ruwach HaQaduwsh is not a person. The pronouns “whom” and “he” should have been translated as “which” and “it.”

Putting The Foreign Names Of The Mankind Above The Name Of YAHUWAH

A few of the viewers of the people of Yahuwah web blog have expressed concern that the people of Yahuwah proclaim a name of the Creator that is foreign to their native language. However, throughout our lives we meet many people, and some of them are from foreign nations with foreign names, yet we do our best to learn to correctly speak the names of our new foreign acquaintances. To say “but I don’t speak Hebrew” or “I don’t speak Abary” is inexcusable and will not stand up before the throne of Yahuwah because He has a record of our life history that will expose us as liars when He reviews all the names of all our foreign acquaintances whose names we learned to pronounce correctly. I call Jose, “Jose” and not Joseph. I call Ian, “Ian”, and not John. I call Pietro, “Pietro”, and not Peter. Yahuwah has evidence in His records that will expose all those whose custom during their lifetime was to call foreigners among the mankind by their name in their foreign languages, but they refused to call Him by His name Yahuwah in the Abary language.

There will be no excuse.

This Is My Name Forever: YAHUWAH
Exodus 3:15

15 “And Alahyam said moreover unto Mashah (Moses), Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Yahsharahal, YAHUWAH Alahyam of your fathers, the Alahyam of Abaraham, the Alahyam of Yatsachaq (Isaac), and the Alahyam of Yaaqob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.”

Praise

YAHUWAH!

Take Heed! Shamar!

4 thoughts on “The Tetragrammaton YHWH [YAHUWAH]

    • Actually, the original text of Yaramyah (Jeremiah) 3:19 uses the Abary language word “Aby.” This is one of the titles He wants His people to call Him, but Aby has a personal name just like you and me. That name is “YAHUWAH.”

  1. isaiah 43;10i am only creator,besides me there is n0 other creator and there never was and never will be….how can HE be a father?HE even have no son?.isaiah 43;11 I AM ALONE YHWH THE ONLY ONE CAN SAVE YOU

  2. Very good article. If I may make a small correction: the letter Heh = Ha (not ‘ah’), let’s not forget the H, it is very important & even though Greek & other languages cannot render it, it should not be ommitted. Therefore YHWH is pronounced “Ya-how-ha” (YaHowHa/Yaha-oha/Yaha-uha). Indeed, the ‘ow’ sound is a vowel composed of 3 sounds: ‘a-o-u’, often spelled in english as “ow”. This is why some modern transliterations have morphed the sound so much: Yahowah, Yawah, Yahuah, Yahuwah. Then let’s add to this the unaccentuated syllables of languages that naturally mute the open “ah” into a collapsed “eh”, and we get Yehowah, “Yahweh”, “Yehuah”, “Yeshua”, etc. Coming back to the original letters: יהוה
    י = Y= Yod = Yah

    ה = H = Hay = Ha

    ו = W = Waw = ow

    ה = H = Hay = Ha

    Yah+ha+ow+ha = Yahowha
    If one likes the transliteration of Yah-huw-ha better, he must not forget the two “H”s & that the “huw” is pronounced as “how” to include the a-o-u sounds. 🙂
