Chapter 6

Proving the Set-Apart Name from Scripture Alone!

 
The first letter in the set-apart name (YHWH) is a YOD; it can be seen in most Bibles just above Psalm 119:73.

The Saviour said, "Till heaven and earth pass, one YOD or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the torah, till all be fulfilled." Matthew 5:18

When Bible translators put LORD in the place of the set-apart name (YHWH), they unknowingly attempted to make many YOD's pass from the law. More specifically, when the Hebrew letter "Y" is turned into a "J".

From my research, the "J" began to have a "g" sound in the English language about 1637, just after the King James Version came out. It was probably an attempt to out date this sharp sword. The King James Version later adjusted to keep up with the times. The "J" having a "g" sound, came about from the influence of the French, the long time enemy of Britain.

Noah Webster comments about the letter J: "This letter has been added to the English alphabet in modern days; the letter i being written formerly in words where j is now used. It seems to have had the sound of "y" in many words as it still has in the German." 1828 American Dictionary

"JAH" the first part of the set-apart name is seen in the King James Version in Psalm 68:4, as in the word Hallelujah, meaning, "Praise ye YAH" as seen in the New King James Version in Psalm 68:4 & Isa. 12:2; 26:4; 38:11. Again, Noah Webster comments about this word HALLELUIAH: "This word is improperly written with j, in conformity with the Germans and other continental languages, in which j has the sound of y. But to pronounce the word with the English sound of j destroys it's beauty. The like mistake of the sound of j in Jehovah, Jordan, Joseph, has perverted the true pronunciation, which was Yehovah, Yordan, Yoseph. This perversion must now be submitted to, but in Halleluiah it ought not to be tolerated." 1828 American Dictionary

Any forester will tell you that J-rooted trees that have been forced or jammed into the ground by a careless tree planter will not grow well. When a dry spell comes along, often it is the J-rooted trees that die. Or, if the tree does live, the growth is really set back.

It is not the will of our Creator to be J-rooted; it is not His will that our spiritual growth should be set back or retarded by this J error. His will for us is to dig deep in Scripture and be rooted and grounded in the love of the truth. The old paths. (See Jeremiah 6:16)

"Those that be planted in the house of YAHUWAH shall flourish in the courts of our Elohim." Psalm 92:13

When the spirit of Eliyah comes, the Set-Apart Spirit will cause us, "To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of YAHUWAH, that He might be magnified." Isaiah 61:3

The Paleo YOD (), which looks like a Flying J, had a Y sound!

The Messiah foretold that before His second coming, the spirit of Eliyah would first come, "and restore all things." Matthew 17:11 & Malachi 4:5. Certainly the Y sound would be restored in the set-apart name.

So far, we have established from Scripture that the first part of the set-apart name is YAH (from Ps. 68:4); there are 137 Israelite names with "yah", and there is also the word Halleluyah. Therefore, the first part cannot be "Yeh"! It is interesting to note that the heathen or Greeks in their hymns, in honor of Apollo, began and ended with hallelu greek, eleleu Ie, a mere corruption of the Hebrew word Halleluyah (see Clarke's Commentary under Revelation 19:1).

Also consider the "IE" in the first two letters of IHS which is actually IES in Greek!

Ies was also a surname for Bacchus.2

Another consideration is YEHWE ZOGBANU - In Dahomean mythology, a forest giant, which had thirty horns and was a threat to hunters.3

The "Yeh" and/or "Yeho" came in with the Jewish cover up of our Heavenly Father's Name.

To be safe, let's hold fast to the Scriptural YAH! YAH is the short form of the great set-apart name; an extended form is seen in the King James Version where the translators hid a clue for the true pronunciation in the very story of the set-apart name show down on Mt. Carmel. In the margin of I Kings 17:1, we see the name Elijahu. Translators tell us that the first part of this name "Eli"  means "my God" See Matthew 27:46. Thus, the last part jahu or yahu is in reference to the set-apart name. Elijah's name means "my El or Elohim is YAHUWAH".

The Saviour said, "It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true" (John 8:17). Thus, the King James translators hid for us two witnesses that give us a clue to the true pronunciation of the set-apart name, not just one. Look in I Kings 18:3 margin, where we see the name Obadiahu, which name means "servant of YAHUWAH." But there is more!

Anciently, names not only ended with "yahu", but also began with "Yahu"; this was determined by comparing other languages like Arabic and Cuneiform.

Jehoahaz -- "An inscription of Tiglathpileser III records tribute being received from Iauhazi (mat) Ia-u-da-a

'Jehoahaz of Judah'. The Illustrated Bible Dictionary

Jehoiachio--"In Babylon, Jehoiachin was treated as a royal hostage. He is named (Yau-kin) in Bab. tablets, dated 595 and 570 BC, as receiving rations at the court in company with his five sons." The Illustrated Bible Dictionary

Jehonuthan-- "The name occurs in Cuneiform records as Yahu-natunnu." Seventh-day Adventist BIBLE DICTIONARY

Jehu-- "Cuneiform Ia-u-a." The New Brown-Driver-Briggs-Gesenius Hebrew English Lexicon. In Arabic, Jehu was pronounced "Yahu". See Hastings Dictionary of the Bible. All this evidence and more, suggest that "Yahu" was used at the beginning of names, instead of the more modem Jewish "Yeho" cover up of the set-apart name. Therefore, the 27 following names are restored to their original pronunciation.
