What's in a name?

The Divine Name revealed to Moses

YHWH is not Jehovah

"Jehovah" is a mishmash.

It takes the consonants of the Divine Name (yhwh), adds in vowels from the substitute word ("Adonai"), produces something that is neither word ("Yahowah"), then runs it through a transliteration of that hodgepodge from German to English, creating a word that is not found in Hebrew or any other sacred language ("Jehovah").

The Name of Jesus

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

A Priestly Blessing

Numbers 6:24-26

May the LORD bless you and keep you.

May the LORD let his face shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.

May the LORD look upon you kindly
and give you peace.
