I wonder where this leaves the verse " Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him." (Ps 68:4). Kind of sounds like the beginning of the name of God begins with "Yah" or Jah", rather than 'Jeh" or Yeh"
As well the argument of 'Hallelujah" sounds more like it comes from a name beginning with 'Yah', rather than 'Yeh.'
Anways, not necessarily fighting the idea of what is being said here, just bringing up some thoughts on it.
Also, seems to me that someone was arguing against the use of YHWH, that it was not really in the Bible, but added by someone and not valid. Or not vaild to use, perhaps, because maybe they were associating it with the pronounciation of Yahweh. Or maybe I wrote Yahweh-not sure I remember. Getting old stinks! What was I saying? Banjo practice?
That still doesn't explain my question in Psalm 68:4-how do we get the name 'Jah', (Yah) From Yehowah-I can see where it comes from Yahweh.
Again, not saying I necessarily agree, and besides, as John says, I call Him 'Father" as well, or 'Lord'. And no, I don't subscribe to the Jewish Roots-thing of having to refer to the Lord by only His Hebrew name, seeing as how He is the one who created the languages, and thus, could be expected to know that a name in one language would sound different in another, and such would be the case even with His. After all, to some I am Michael, to others, Michelle, to others MIguel, Mikhael, etc. So, Jesus is Joshua, or Y'shuah, etc.
