            "ELOHIM" is the first name for God found in the Tenach (Old Testament). It is in Genesis 1:1 and is the third word of the Hebrew Scriptures: In the beginning "Elohim" - "God." Elohim is the most common name that is translated as "God." Elohim comes from a root that means "strength, might, power." It is used over 2300 times in the Scriptures to refer to the God of Israel. Elohim is unusual since it is plural. It can also be translated as "gods." Exodus 12:12 refers to "all the elohim (gods) of Egypt." This plural name that is used for the One God of Israel opens the door for the revelation of the plural yet single nature of God that is more fully revealed in the rest of the Scriptures. Elohim can be combined with other words. When that happens different attributes of God are emphasized.

            Elohay Kedem - God of the Beginning: (Deuteronomy 33:27). The Powerful One always was and is. He is before all things in time and priority. He must be first before all else in our affections.

            Elohay Chasdi - God Of My Kindness: (Psalm 59:11, 18). The Strong One is Himself kind and works to make us kind. Yeshua's life and sacrifice is the supreme example of God's kindness.

            Elohay Tehilati - God Of My Praise: (Psalm 109:1). God is supremely worthy of our praise. He desires to be the main subject of our accolades as well as what we talk and think about.

            Elohay Yishi - God Of My Salvation: (Psalm 18:47, 25:5). Salvation is in a Person - Yeshua - not a belief system or good works. God's nature and will is to save what is lost. Salvation must be personal. The Mighty One must be the God of my salvation.

            Elohay Elohim - God Of Gods: (Deuteronomy 10:17). There are other so called "gods" and powers, but the Strong One is mightier than all. Even they acknowledge Him as the Most Powerful.

            Elohay HaRuchot LeKol Basar - God Of The Spirits Of All Flesh: (Numbers 16:22). God created us with a physical and spiritual dimension. He claims lordship over body and soul, flesh and spirit.

            Elohim Kedoshim - Holy God: (Leviticus 19:2, Joshua 24:19). The Mighty One is unique, special, one of a kind. There is no one and nothing like Him, and there will never be. He is distinct from everyone and everything else. He is pure and free from any wrong.

No one is more powerful than He. We can go to the Mighty One, the Powerful One, the Strong One, who will infuse us with strength and empower us to do all that He calls us to do.


            "ELAH" is another name that is translated as "God." It is used 70 times in the Scriptures. It can be combined with other words so that different attributes of God are emphasized.

            Elah Yerush'lem - God of Jerusalem: (Ezra 7:19). God is uniquely associated with Jerusalem. He is forever tied to the city of Jerusalem. It is His eternal capital and dwelling place. It will be the future center of the universe.

            Elah Sh'maya V'Arah - God of Heaven and Earth: (Ezra 5:11). The Mighty One is the ruler over the entire universe. There is nothing that is not under His power.


            "ELOAH" is the singular of Elohim. It is used 50 times in the Bible. It too is translated as "God."


            "YHVH" is a name that is translated as "LORD." It is used approximately 7000 times in the Tenach, more than any other name for God. It is also referred to as the "Tetragrammaton", which means "The Four Letters" because it comes from four Hebrew letters: Yud, Hay, Vav, Hay.

            This is the special memorial-name that God revealed to Moses at the burning bush. "And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM; and He said, thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you... this is My eternal name, and this is how I am to be recalled for all generations" (Exodus 3:14-15). Even though the name YHVH appears in Genesis 2, God didn't reveal Himself as YHVH until Exodus 3 in conjunction with the creation of Israel.

            This name comes from the Hebrew verb which means "to be." YHVH emphasizes God's absolute being. He is the source of all being, all reality, and all existence. He has being inherent in Himself. Everything else derives its being from Him. YHVH denotes God's utter transcendence. He is beyond His creation. He is without beginning and without end because He always is.

            Although some pronounce YHVH as Jehovah or Yaweh, we no longer know the proper pronunciation. The Jewish people stopped saying this name by the third century A.D. out of fear of violating the commandment "You shall not take the name of YHVH your God in vain" (Exodus 20:7). According to the rabbis, the Tetragrammaton may not be pronounced under any circumstances. Another name, "Adonai", is usually substituted in place of YHVH.

            When YHVH is combined with other words the LORD's different attributes are emphasized.

            YHVH Elohim - LORD God: (Genesis 2:4). This is a powerful revelation of God as the Strongest One who is the totality of all being, reality and existence. He is the Mighty One who has all the power and resources to meet all of man's needs.

            YHVH M'kadesh - The LORD Who Makes Holy: (Ezekiel 37:28). He is holy, unique, special, one of a kind. There is one God and there is no one and nothing like Him. Holiness comes from closeness to Adonai M'kadesh. The closer we get to Him the holier we become.

            YHVH Yireh - The LORD Who Sees: (Genesis 22:14). Adonai is all seeing and is aware of all our problems and needs. The LORD is committed to provide for all the needs of His people.

            YHVH Nisi - The LORD My Miracle, or The LORD My Banner: (Exodus 17:15). If we need a miracle Adonai is able to do one for us. He is our banner or standard. In the midst of life's raging battles we see Him high and lifted up. If we keep our eyes on Him and follow Him we will be miraculously victorious.

            YHVH Shalom - The LORD Of Peace: (Judges 6:24). "Shalom" means wholeness, completeness, peace. The LORD is complete in and of Himself. Adonai needs nothing to add to His completeness. His desire and purpose is to restore peace and wholeness to His creation that was fractured by sin.

            YHVH Tzidkaynu - The LORD Our Righteousness: (Jeremiah 33:16). The LORD is perfectly right and just in all that He says and does. Entering into a personal faith relationship with Adonai is what makes us right. Ultimate saving righteousness doesn't come by keeping commandments or doing good deeds, but by having a right relationship with Adonai Tzidkaynu and being declared righteous by Him.

            YHVH Rofehcha - The LORD Who Heals You: (Exodus 15:26). Adonai is the Great Physician and the ultimate source of all healing - spiritual, physical, emotional, mental, societal, environmental. If you are in need of any kind of healing He is the first One to turn to.

            YHVH Tz'vaot - The LORD Of Armies: (1 Samuel 1:11). The LORD is the most powerful being and the greatest warrior in the universe. Adonai is the general of His armies in Heaven and on Earth. He is the supreme Commander in Chief.

            YHVH O'saynu - The LORD our Maker: (Psalm 95:6). The LORD is our Creator. Since He is our Maker He deserves all that we have and all that we are.


            The LORD who revealed Himself as YHVH in the Tenach is revealed as Yeshua in the New Testament. Yeshua shares the same attributes as YHVH and claims to be YHVH.

            Messiah Yeshua has the same attribute of being inherent in Himself: "For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself" (John 5:26).

            Messiah Yeshua has the same attribute of sustaining the universe: "And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together" (Colossians 1:17). "He upholds all things by the word of His power" (Messianic Jews - Hebrews 1:3).

            Messiah Yeshua claimed to be YHVH. In John 8:56-9 Yeshua claimed to be "I AM." When asked by some Jewish leaders how He could have seen Abraham, who lived 2000 years before He was born, Yeshua replied: "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM. Therefore they picked up stones to throw at Him", referring to Exodus 3:14. Those leaders of Israel understood that Yeshua was claiming to be YHVH. This is proven when they tried to stone Him to death for what they considered blasphemy.

            In Romans 10:9 Paul tells the Messianic Community at Rome: "if you confess with your mouth Yeshua as Lord... you shall be saved." A few verses later, in 10:13, Paul backs up this statement by quoting Joel 2:32: "Whoever will call upon the name of the LORD (YHVH) will be saved." Calling on Yeshua as Lord is equivalent to calling Him YHVH, because Yeshua is YHVH - LORD.


            "YAH" is a shortened form of YHVH. It means the same thing as YHVH, and is used approximately 40 times in the Scriptures. Yah appears primarily in the book of Psalms. Psalm 122:3-4 says that "Jerusalem is built as a city that is compact together; to which the tribes of Yah (the LORD) go up." It is also found in the compound word "hallelu-Yah", which means "praise Yah (the LORD)."


            "ADONAI" is the rabbinic substitute for the Tetragrammaton. It can literally be translated as "my lords." It is an emphatic form of the word "Adon", which means "master" or "lord." Adonai is usually translated as "Lord." It is used approximately 450 times. "I saw Adonai (the Lord) sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, with the train of His robe filling the temple" (Isaiah 6:1).

            Adonay HaAdonim - Lord Of The Lords: (Deuteronomy 10:17). Our Lord is the supreme Master, the ultimate Ruler, the Lord over all the powers and authorities that exist in the universe.


            "ADON" means "Lord": (Isaiah 10:33). God is the Master. He rules and issues commands. We are to obey. Is He your Lord?

            The Holy Spirit is compared to:

            Clothing (Luke 24:49): Because He clothes us with power from on high.

            A Dove (Matthew 3:16): Because the dove is a symbol of purity, peace, and flies in the heavens and was used as a sacrifice for the poor.

            A Pledge, Earnest Money (2 Corinthians 1:22): Because He is the pledge and the downpayment of our inheritance.

            A Seal (Ephesians 1:13): Because a seal protects, makes secure, and demonstrates ownership.

            Fire (Acts 2:3): Because fire separates the impure from the pure, it cleanses and purifies.

            Oil (Acts 10:38): Because oil was used for anointing, for healing, for nourishment and burned to give light.

            Water (John 7:38): Because water is simple yet mysterious. It is tasteless, formless, colorless, transparent, and buoyant. It can hold up a huge ship. It is used for transportation. The Holy Spirit holds us up and transports us through this world to the World To Come. Water cleanses and refreshes. With water there is life, growth, and fruitfulness. Without water there are deserts.

            Wind (John 3:8): Because we can't see the wind but we can see its results. Just as the winds blows wherever it wants, so God's Spirit is sovereign. He gives gifts as He wills. Wind can be powerful like a tornado or hurricane, or be a cool refreshing breeze.

            Breath: (John 20:22). Without breath we die. God's Breath gives us life. We have life and intimacy with God due to His indwelling Spirit.

            Wine: Because we are not to be drunk with wine, but be filled with the Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18).

              As Tonton said: Wow!

              No kidding!
              Son of Bavaria

              GAL 6:16
              Here Paul attacks ... the Jews, who boasted about their fathers, their election, the Law ... "The Israel of God are not the physical descendants of ... Israel but those who ... believe in the promises of God ..., whether they are Jews or Gentiles.

              This is an indirect ridicule of the vain boasting of ... the descendants of Abraham according to the flesh. ... he gives the appellation of the Israel of God to those whom he formerly denominated the children of Abraham by faith ..., and thus includes all believers, whether Jews or Gentiles ...

                In the Bible, your name is your nature. Never forget that.

                When it was written that there is no other name, etc, it was not speaking of the written or spoken word "Jesus."

                It was speaking of the nature of Christ. Without that nature, no man may be saved.

                There is only one name (as in proper noun) that God Himself revealed to mankind. That name is "HAYAH ESHER HAYAH" - "I AM THAT I AM."

                He told Moses that "I AM" would be His name and His memorial forever.

                So then, how can I invoke that name without including myself?

                  Well, so I don't break any copyright laws, I'll let you know I copied these off a website with song lyrics by Amy Grant:

                  El Shaddai

                  "El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
                  El-Elyon na Adonai,
                  Age to age You're still the same,
                  By the power of the name.
                  El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
                  Erkahmka na Adonai,
                  We will praise and lift You high,
                  El Shaddai.

                  Through your love and through the ram,
                  You saved the son of Abraham;
                  Through the power of your hand,
                  Turned the sea into dry land.
                  To the outcast on her knees,
                  You were the God who really sees,
                  And by Your might,
                  You set Your children free.

                  El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
                  El-Elyon na Adonai,
                  Age to age You're still the same,
                  By the power of the name.
                  El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
                  Erkahmka na Adonai,
                  We will praise and lift You high,
                  El Shaddai.

                  Through the years You made it clear,
                  That the time of Christ was near,
                  Though the people couldn't see
                  What Messiah ought to be.
                  Though Your Word contained the plan,
                  They just would not understand
                  Your most awesome work was done
                  Through the frailty of Your Son.

                  El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
                  El-Elyon na Adonai,
                  Age to age You're still the same,
                  By the power of the name.
                  El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
                  Erkahmka na Adonai,
                  I will praise you 'till I die,
                  El Shaddai.

                  El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
                  El-Elyon na Adonai,
                  Age to age You're still the same,
                  By the power of the name.
                  El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
                  Erkahmka na Adonai,
                  I will praise you 'till I die.
                  El Shaddai."

                  I like that song. What does Erkahmka mean? And what does Erkahmka and El Shaddai mean when combined with na Adonai?
                  It's like I had a feeling of peace while reading these postings. It is neat to see God's attributes through His beautiful names.

                  Thank you Lord.

                    I think it's interesting that one of the Hebrew words meaning life or alive "chayah" has Yah in it.

                    Philippians1:21. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

                      Well, there are 2 "names" that I know about are missing...and probably the reason they are missing, is that in Judism the name of God is so holy that it cannot be spoken, so in Hebrew, in most texts (and BDH you even covered the tetragramaton, pronounced yod hey vav hey ie..Yaway(transliteraton)) the name of God is written with 2 yods(kind of looks like '') which is pronounced yeyeh...and the other name from the tetragramaton is AinSof, which means, the name which can never be uttered...lovelight and blessings...Charwilla

                        Everytime I think I've heard them all, a new one pops up. Thanx to everyone who dug up the gold and posted it and to Kaky for starting this post. I guess it's apropriate for our infinite God to have an infinity of names. Praise them all!

                          Yeshua El Yakar

                          YESHUA is from the Hebrew YESHA - YUD SHIN AYIN - meaning HELP, SALVATION, RESCUE.

                          Variant spellings - YESHUA – YESHUAH – JESHUA - JESHUAH - YAHSHUA

                          Biblical name - YESHUA was the father of Joaikim. He was the head of a family of priests who returned with Zerubbabel from Babylon (Ezra 2:36; Nehiamiah 12:8).

                          The letters featured in this painting are YUD SHIN VAV AYIN HEY. Taken all together they spell JESHUA.

                          Each of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet has a special meaning and a story to tell. Here are a few brief ones about the letters in this paintnig.

                          The painting and more Hebrew names can be found at;


                          The YUD is the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet and has a numerical value of 10. YUD makes a sound like the Y in Year. YUD is a simple point. It is the smallest letter in the alphabet and yet is frequently associated with the very large concept of EMANATION, the highest level in the Four World paradigm of Kabbalah.

                          SHIN is the 21st letter of the Hebrew alphabet and has a numerical value of 300. SHIN means TOOTH, YEAR, REPEAT, TEACH. SHIN makes the sound SHHHHHH when the DOT is on the right, and SSSS when the DOT is on the left.

                          VAV is the 6th letter and has a numerical value of 6. It means HOOK and makes a sound like the V in Victory. When used as a vowel, VAV can sound like a long `o’ or a long `u.’ Translated it means AND. It is the GREAT CONNECTOR. VAV appears in the Four Letter name of God.

                          AYIN is the 16th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, has a numerical value of 70 AND makes no sound. AYIN means EYE or FOUNTAIN. The AYIN is constructed of an elongated YUD (10) on the right and a ZAYIN (7) on the left.

                          EL, ELAH, ELI, ELOHAH, ELOHIM, ELOI:

                          Most versions translate the many Hebrew, Aramaic, and

                          Transliterated: 'el

                          Text: "god." This term was the most common general designation of deity in the ancient Near East. While it frequently occurred alone, 'el was also combined with other words to constitute a compound term for diety, or to identify the nature and functions of the "god" in some manner. Thus the expression "God, the God of Israel" (Gen. 33:20) identified the specific activities of Israel's God.
                          In the ancient world, knowledge of a person's name was believed to give one power over that person. A knowledge of the character and attributes of pagan "gods" was thought to enable the worshipers to manipulate or influence the deities in a more effective way than they could have if the diety's name remained unknown. To that extent, the vagueness of the term 'el frustrated persons who hoped to obtain some sort of power over the deity, since the name gave little or no indication of the god's character. This was particularly true for El, the chief Canaanite god. The ancient Semites stood in mortal dread of the superior powers exercised by the gods and attempted to propitiate them accordingly. They commonly associated deity with the manifestation and use of enormous power. Perhaps this is reflected in the curious Hebrew phrase, "the power ['el] of my hand" (Gen. 31:29, KJV; RSV, "It is in my power"; cf. Deut. 28:32). Some Hebrew phrases in the Psalms associated 'el with impressive natural features, such as the cedar trees of Lebanon (Ps. 80:10) or mountains (Ps. 36:6). In these instances, 'el conveys a clear impression of grandeur or majesty.
                          Names with 'el as one of their components were common in the Near East in the second millennium B.C. The names

                          'el, Hebrew 410, Strong’s
                          'el, ale;
                          shortened from Hebrew 352 ('ayil); strength; as adjective mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity) :- God (god), × goodly, × great, idol, might (-y one), power, strong. Compare names in “-el.”

                          YAKAR is from the Hebrew meaning VALUABLE, PRECIOUS.

                          The letters featured in this work are YUD KUF RESH. Taken together, and reading from right to left, they spell YAKAR.

                          Each of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet has a special meaning and a story to tell. Here a few brief ones about the letters on this painting.

                          The painting and more Hebrew names can be found at;


                          YUD is the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet and has a numerical value of 10. YUD makes a sound like the Y in Year. YUD is a simple point. It is the smallest letter in the alphabet and yet is frequently associated with the very large concept of EMANATION, the highest level in the Four World paradigm of Kabbalah.

                          KUF is the 19th letter of the Hebrew alphabet and has a numerical value of 100. KUF makes a sound like the K in Kind. KUF means TO SURROUND, TO TOUCH, MONKEY. KUF is constructed of a CAF (20) and a VAV (6) = 26. This is the same GEMATRIA as that of the YUD (10) HEY (5) VAV 6) HEY (5) name of God. KUF is associated with the word KADOSH – HOLY.

                          RESH is the 20th letter of the Hebrew alphabet and has a numerical value of 200. RESH makes a sound like the R in Radiant. RESH means BEGINNING or HEAD. When one spells out the letter RESH in Hebrew, it is RESH YUD SHIN. YUD and SHIN spell YESH - THERE IS. The letter RESH means BEGINNING. So it is possible to say that the RESH literally means THERE IS A BEGINNING.

                              To Goober - Translation


                              This is the translation of Hebrew I have found on the web for this song El Shaddai. "Erkahmka" is not a word usually used for love. Normally "anu ot-cha" is used for "we love you".

                              El Shaddai - God Almighty
                              El Elyon - God Most High
                              na Adonai - O Lord
                              Erkahmka - We will love you

                              Blessings in Messiah,
