Each of the many names of God describes a different aspect of His many-faceted character. What are some of the many names of God in the Bible? I will start: El Shaddai " God Almighty" Jehovah Jireh "The God who provides" Elohim "God ... Creator, Mighty and Strong"

Dear mattmilamii, Thank you so much for answering. I belief you have covered it! You have included the three I started out with and then some! God bless.
YHWH are consonants, not vowels ( probably a typo; I make them all the time. I hope you would do the same for me in relation to important commentary ).
sorry I posted here didn't mean to
So glad you found something of value. The better we understand, the more glory is given to Him.
Hi Sparklea, yes, me too! The Great I AM. Thank you for sharing. How interesting that you were able to meet Norman Grubb! I refer to God as God too, and what made me think of all of His other names is during Christmas in the songs, those names!
@D.S. P.S. It gets complicated.Personally, I don't like to use the name 'Jehovah', as it has a dubious background for its formation.I'l just stick with G-d. :)
YHWH are all vowels not consonants
ee is the y sound in levy
ah is the sound of the a in father
oo is the sound of the os in mood
eh is the sound of the e in set
Thanks so much, Writer Fox, for answering. Very interesting.
YHWH are vowels and said ee-ah-oo-ah
You do know some vowels and consonants are interchangeable.His name is Yah (ee-ah) and found in Psalm 68:4
Hi Faith: Thank you.
To Deborah: The four Hebrew letters which form the name of the God of Israel are not vowels; they are consonants. The name of God is not found is Psalm 68:4. And your transliteration is incorrect as well. You've been misled.
God's name is found in Psalms 68:4. English have it Jah but it's Yah. You would have to speak Hebrew to know Yod, Vav, and Heh are Long vowels or Vowels letter. When you learn Hebrew come back
I live in Israel and I speak Hebrew. Deborah, you're information is incorrect and the name of God is not found in Psalm 68:4. Find a Hebrew teacher where you live. There are no vowels in Biblical Hebrew and your transliterations are wrong.
I was born in Israel and I'm Hebrew. Deborah is correct. Yod, Vav, and Heh are vowel letters aka consonant vowels. They are used as consonants and vowels. The secret to enunciating the name. You might look up the name Yah
I can believe you live in Israel, but not that you speak Hebrew. I speak it fluently and lived in Savyon and studied Hebrew nearby. If you speak Hebrew you would know about Yod, Vav, Heh and the name Yah
Fox I’m using phonetics, what am I saying?
Bevakasha, Ata yakhol laazor li? beyt hamirkahat?
That is not a known language.
לא תשא את שם יהוה אלהיך, לשוא: כי לא ינקה יהוה, את אשר ישא את שמו לשוא.
I am using English letters to pronounce Hebrew words. Anyone can go to a translator and get the Hebrew words as you did. If you can't understand what I have written you can't speak Hebrew. I thought not. Stop pretending
Nobody who speaks Hebrew uses the English alphabet to communicate in Hebrew. It's a pity you couldn't read what I wrote because there is a judgment and it falls on you.
The Hebrew word for peace is שלום
When we write Shalom , it is not a translation but it is how you write Phonetically the way it sounds. If we translate it in writing it is peace.
You do write phonetically to express pronunciation of words in other languages, and you should know what she said. Hint, it starts out "Excuse me," Now you finish what she said Fox
She can read what you wrote
I have written a hub on God's name explaining the YHVH letters
Now I have your name right this time. With two ' i's '. lol!
All the Best,
Hi Dear Romeos, I am sorry I missed you this morning, before leaving for my commute into the City. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer and especially with such very interesting answers here! God bless you. In His Love Always
God's name is Yah said ee-ah
Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him.
Hello welch moore, thank you so much for answering. Yes, indeed!
You are so right Watch that's why we must know it Read my hub about the Hebrew letters http://deborah-sexton.hubpages.com/hub/Hebrew-Lett...
A ' translation ' gives the meaning of a word from a different language. A ' transliteration ' gives the word from a different language in letters that one can understand, so as to be able to pronounce it correctly.Your list are epithets,not names
I speak Hebrew and names/attributes and a characteristic of the person or thing are all the same.
Jehovah is not how you pronounce YHVH/YHWH
@ DS.The original pronunciation of YHWH was lost hundreds of years ago, that is why modern Judaism substitutes 'Yahweh' with 'Adonai'.Jehovah is the Anglicized form of YHVH/YHWH. An epithet highlights different aspects of Himself in His various roles
Hi Deborah, God's name is certainly very important! Thank you for answering. Hi Romeos, thank you for the clarification! God bless you both!.
Just a couple of letters in the Hebrew alphabet has changed. All these YHWH/YHVH are vowels and are the same today accept the W. The reason they called God Adonai was so as not to speak God's name not because they didn't know how.
The God of Israel only has one name and it is: יהוה. All of these letters are consonants and Biblical Hebrew has no vowels. I don't know why Deborah claims to speak Hebrew when it is so clear that she cannot.
God has many names. I wrote Hebrew phonetically under your post.and you couldn't read it. Anyone who can speak Hebrew should know what it says. It is the sound of the words. But you couldn't read it. Oh, I also speak Greek. Stop pretending, It's ugly
Psalm 68:4 is one of the places where God's name is mentioned, but not the only place. The personal name of God, Yahweh, or Jehovah, appears almost 7,000 times in the Old Testament, or Hebrew Scriptures.
M. Allison, I was saying in the English bible, "Yah only appears once as Jah in Psalms. The Jewish bible written in Hebrew gives all the names God is called + His personal Name YHVH, and Yah. Read before commenting
You know, Deborah, what I don't understand is why you use a picture of Ashley Benson (from Pretty Little Liars) as your avatar picture and claim on HP that that is really a picture of you? http://sandy.claws.free.fr/avatar/ashley-benson
I think, by
Fox, Not hardly, I've never heard of Ashley. Show me please. Here are my pictures. Show me ones of Ashley Like mine
I think you damage your credibility – especially when answering questions about the Bible. To quote yourself, "Stop pretending, It's ugly." Ashley's pictures are all over Pinterest. See pics at this link: goo.gl/Ngm3ye
