The name of God (יהוה/YHWH in Hebrew, also called the Tetragrammaton) means “I am” or “I exist” in English. Christians today debate the pronunciation because ancient Hebrew had no vowel markers. We believe that “Yahuwah” (also spelled Yahuah) is the most likely pronunciation. Of course, the most commonly recognized spelling is Jehovah. Yah (spelled Jah in the KJV) is the short form. We believe we should use God’s name because of passages such as Isaiah12:4 and Zephaniah 3:9. Having said that, we are not dogmatic about the way it is spelled or pronounced. Above all else, we must treat God’s name with reverence and respect, no matter which pronunciation we favor.
