Why is the name of God missing from most Bibles?


The name of God is found close to 7,000 time in the original language that the Bible was written in, why is it now missing from many Bibles? and why do you feel that way?

    I've heard the same. I've also read that it's a superstition that developed from a misunderstanding of Ex 20:7. Jesus quoted many scriptures that had God's name in them. He held it sacred, didn't use it in vain, but still used it. Rom 10:13

    I mean his actual name. In the original language God's name is יהוה , rendered Jehovah or Yahweh in English. Most Bibles use a title such as God, Lord, or Eternal. That name was written close to 7,000 times in the language used for most of the Bible

    We are under NEW Covenant & Scripture says in Phil 2:9-11 "...at the name of JESUS..." Why not Jehovah?

    Very Good question researching bible history, shows that God's name was revealed even before Israel became his special people , The personal name of God Almighty(Jehovah) was revealed to separate himself from the many foreign gods people created .

    Did you look for it in your Bible? I have found it in some Bibles at Psalm 83:18. But only a few Bible have tried to restore the name to the original places.

    Yes, I agree that many have tried to occult the truth of what they Bible really teaches. God inspired men to write the Bible (2Tim 3:16), and then other men tried to keep God's word hidden. Misled and misleading they are. (in Yoda voice)

    Thank you for letting me know what you believe. However, I was referring to God's name, יהוה , rendered Jehovah or Yahweh in English. (Exodus 3:15) (Psalm83:18) The Father, who Jesus said was greater than he. (John 14:28)

    I'm glad your Bible has his name in it. Many Bible just replace it with a title such as Lord, God, etc. Sometimes they add a title to his name such as Jehovah-Shalom(Peace) or the meaning (causes to become) but leave out his actual name. (Isa 42:8)
