WOI!!! Seems like we stirred up a hornets nest over His Name. If you do a search you will find many pages out there trying to discredit or ridicule what They Call "The Sacred Name Movement" the main complaint seems to be that we do not agree on what the Name actually is... because there are variations.. because we do our research independently. Also is the difficulty of going from Hebrew to English we do not share the same Aleph-Bet.

But I honestly believe that their real problem is that we do agree that the Father's Name is not "The Lord", "God" and The Sons Name is not "Jesus Christ".. most of us will also point out the origins of the above names of blasphemy and the idolatrous nature of other words held dear.

Sincere people hold on to long held beliefs  -and will feel threatened- this is only natural.
             So they tend to lash out at truth-bearers. -Please don't blaspheme The MostHigh Creators SetApart Spirit of Truth in the process.

The Name IaHUShUA' IS NOT "THE MARK of The Beast"!

Neither IS The Name of YaHWeH = "JOVE" or "Jupiter"

These are LIES Fostered by the Prophets of "Ba'AL" who got Upset When they were Exposed.
We Do Not And Should NOT INVENT New Pronunciations for Fear of Their LIES!!

Interesting to note is that Most of these pages against the Name are Identical copies. This seems insincere.
At least most of us "Namers" will do our own research.

I also find very few valid points to their arguments.. search for yourself! Please don't take our word for it. But don't dismiss us without Checking.

IaHUeH

- When I Received His Name and I Cried Out to IaHUeH is the Key
that Not only Unlocked my Heart but Also Unlocked His WORD to me.  the Scriptures

The Name of IaHUeH Is the Breath of Life..
I Hear and Experience this with my every Breath..
I Hear it on the Wind..
and I Hear it when the Waves of the Sea
come to Shore and return..

Further.. I hear IaHUShUA' in my Heartbeat..
ma
ybe that is why these other pronunciations don't work for me...

(Special thanks to: YAHWEH'S ASSEMBLY IN MESSIAH and their Publication "The Missing J")       --------- NOTE:*

"The Creator's Name Yahweh derives from the Tetragrammaton YHWH, the English equivalent of the Hebrew letters ~ (yothe, hay, waw, hay). The Tetragrammaton—"four letters" is found in ancient Bible manuscripts. Early Christian writers such as Clement of Alexandria transliterated it into Greek as IAOUE. (Transliterate means to carry the actual sound of a word from one language to another.) The Tetragrammaton is made up of four Hebrew letters having the force of vowels, as Hebrew primers readily show. Josephus says that the Tetragrammaton appeared in the High Priest's miter (hat) and consisted of four vowels. Wars, Book V, chapter V, 7. "
(Special thanks to: YAHWEH'S ASSEMBLY IN MESSIAH and their Publication "The Missing J")

Thus Iod He Uaw He יהוהIaHUeHwould be pronounced ee ah oo eh. IaHUeH. "Yahuwěh" or "Yahuwah" not fully Accurate but is Acceptable as is the Greek "IAOUE" but "IaHUěH" seems the most accurate concise transliteration into English. It perhaps would work as "IeHUaH" .. But IaHU is more consistent with other names in Scripture that contain His Name.. even though Strong's Concordance and KJV often uses "Jeho" . .

Then there was king Jehu (IeHU) יהוא whose name is translated "IaHUeH is He".

This name actually looks like "IaHU`A" which is why I stick with "IaHUeH" (short e)

The New Invention YaHuWaH comes from The ERRONEOUS ASSUMPTION That "IaHUDaH" Holds a Secret key for Pronunciation.

eDFei if you lose the Dalet   eFei they say you get the Pronunciation YaHUWaH
But if you Lose the DaLeT You Change the Pronunciation!!! While IaHUDaH Does mean "IaHUeH I Will Praise" it is the DaLeT that gives the Third Syllable..
"I will praise" is translated from אודהwhich is said to be pronounced 'ODaH

People are Causing Great Harm and DIVISION by Attempting to "correct" what is Already CORRECT.. You Don't CORRECT The TRUTH with ERROR!

What does The Name mean?

as far as we can possibly tell.
The root is "existing"   אהיה  -- היה  I will exist    'AHaIeH according to the interlinear
הוה "to Be, Breathe" יהוה He is and will exist IaHUeH
I see this "IaHU" in many names in Strongs Concordance though many times shortened to "IaH"

The Name comes from a root that means "was, is, will be..." (as in AHaIaH ASheR AHaIaH Exodus 3:14 "I was, am, will be.. what I was, am, will be") Signifying self existence.. The CREATOR .. for all else was created.. through the WORD made flesh!
Which dwells amongst us...

Now a very interesting note: At  Shabbat Meetings I used to attend.. we have been fellowshipping with a Sister Yahudit.. she spelled His Name "IAOUE" which looked very familiar to me..
I had seen it somewhere before.. as it turns out, what I was remembering was reading the name IeShRaEL or "Yisrael" written in a Hebrew font IeShRaEL.. but read in an english font.. as in ěŕřůé ... This not only gives new meaning to the quote:
2 Chr 7:14    If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
(KJV Emphasis added)

but also testifies to the difficulties of transliteration from one language to another.
The above example is transliterated from Hebrew to Greek.. back to Hebrew to English via Latin using the "UNIVERSE" protocol for typography. Hebrew reads right to left.. the others left to right... Now tell me: Is this merely a remarkable coincidence?!?

Our modern Hebrew "Expert" informs us:

As for the pronunciation of YHWH, I recently came across a very ancient document written in Hebrew that goes into GREAT DETAIL about how to pronounce the Divine Name.  I plan to put it on the web in a few weeks once I  get a new slide presentation/ lesson recorded about it.  I suspect it will put an end to a lot of the silliness that is running around today concerning people using blasphemous mis-pronunciations.
 
If you're not sure if I'm write, then follow this one simple rule; If you don't speak Hebrew, don't argue with Hebrew speaking people about how to speak Hebrew.  Would you argue with a German on what is correct German?  Or a Russian on what is correct Russian?  Obviously not, yet some people STILL want to argue with people who speak Hebrew on how to speak Hebrew.  And that same non-challantness leads people to argue with history over what is hostoric, even though history doesn't record what they claim happens.  There's writing describing anyone believing in a Lunar Sabbath prior to the 1990s, but some people will argue with history over what happened in history, just like they argue with Hebrew over how to speak Hebrew. 
 
Truth is what it is, and no one can change it by pretending it is what you want it to be.

In an earlier email he said:

"Yehuah" is how you say "He will be the one who has become", which implies that at one time He did not
exist.

Often when people trying to argue with people who speak Hebrew over how to
speak Hebrew and re-invent how to say the Names, they end up saying
something blasphemous. It's amusing in some ways, but my ears really burn
when I hear it.    (endquote)
 

The Following is From a Real Hebrew Expert a Doctor Michael Heiser.

A Dear friend who Promotes the pronunciation YaHuWaH was trying to convince him of his "error".

 it's only a two syllable name; that is a necessity if one (a) takes Exod 3 seriously, that the name is derived from hayah (hawah in ancient Semitic) and (b) since it is a 3rd masculine singular form.  No 3ms form has three syllables.

... it's not just about letter counting.

You'd have to know something about Hebrew morphology and grammar. Acc. to Exod 3 the divine name is based on the verb hayah ("to be"). "I am" in Hebrew = the Qal stem first common singular imperfect form of the verb hayah (= ehyeh; two syllables and always / only two syllables - in fact, it can't be anything other than two syllables due to the way the imperfect is formed).

"Yahweh" is the THIRD person imperfect form of hayah, but (apparently) the Hiphil stem (I say apparently because the "yhwh" form is controversial for grammatical reasons - no third masculine singular Hiphil form of hayah is known in the Hebrew Bible or outside the Hebrew Bible in epigraphic Hebrew, so some say there must be some other explanation for the form - as though it can't be unique!). At any rate, I think that logic is lame and Yahweh is what one would expect a third masc singular Hiphil imperfect of hayah to look like. The meaning of that form is not "I am" (that's first person) but rather "he who causes to be". There are good theological reasons for the first to third person "change" to the divine name, but I'll spare you the details.
If, as Exodus 3 makes crystal clear, the divine name is built from the verb hayah (original semitic spelling = hawah [hence the "w" letter]; "to be"), then there are only two possible pronunciations for yhwh:
1. yihweh
2. yahweh

The first "y" = the imperfect conjugation prefix. Notice it is added to h-w-h, the original root verb (hawah - "to be").  This yodh is present in y-h-w-h.  grammatically, it's the only thing it can be (the imperfect yodh prefix).  

The first form = the Qal imperfect third masc singular and means "he is"

The second form = the Hiphil imperfect third masc singular and means "he causes to be" (the Hiphil is the causative active verb stem in Hebrew).
So why the preference for #2?  Simple.  The divine name (yhwh) occurs in the Hebrew Bible in a shortened form -- "Yah" [yh - and it *is* vocalized in the text, contrary to the longer form yhwh].  The short form occurs nearly 50 times. I have attached a sample. The short form is *always* vocalized with an a vowel (qamets) as "Yah" -- and so the second option "Yah-weh" is the preferred pronunciation of the divine name.
Lastly, the Hiphil imperfect form yahweh has only two syllables. In fact, *all* third masculine singular imperfect forms have only two syllables.
The above is why your pronunciation cannot be correct. It violates every example of the grammatical form known in the Hebrew Bible.
The person knows nothing about comparative semitic grammar or Hebrew morphology.  He/she seems to think that the name cannot be from hayah because it has the name has a "w" instead of a "y" as the third letter. He/she also has the word scholars in scare quotes making it pejorative.

I know what I'm talking about. You really do learn something in fifteen years of comparative semitic study. I've produced an entire database of pre-biblical and early biblical period semitic inscriptions
( http://www.logos.com/products/details/3581
). I can show you examples of the "to be" verb as hawah across semitic languages. This person is welcome to read any of the comparative semitic grammars out there to confirm he/she is wrong (and likely doesn't even know why). I'd recommend Randall Garr's work, Dialectic Geography of Syria Palestine or Bergstrasser's. You can also find this information in less exotic sources (certainly more academic than Strong's numbers!).  Here's a more common source - InterVarsity Press's Dictionary of the Old Testament: Pentateuch, the entry on "God, Names of" section 2.

"The most common designation for {The All-Mighty} in the Pentateuch, and in fact the most common Hebrew noun in the Bible, is Yahweh. It is made up of the Hebrew consonants yhwh, called the Tetragrammaton, the “four-letter” word par excellence. The precise pronunciation is uncertain, since during the Second Temple period the name dropped from active use and was replaced by other forms (for a discussion, see 3 below). It is a proper noun comprised of a third-person masculine singular prefix verb from the root hwh / hyh, “be, happen, become” (HALOT 2.502, 511–40)"
T. Desmond Alexander and David W. Baker, Dictionary of the Old Testament: Pentateuch (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2003), 362.

In the above quote, HALOT - The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament.

And ThankYou Dr. Heiser!! May IaHUeH Bless you Increasingly.

We Can See that The Pronunciation of the Name is indeed a Complicated issue. A Name is Different than a Word though All Hebrew Names Have a Meaning and even in the Hebrew texts we find Variation.
Adding to the mix is The Word הוה as a Noun Means desire, ruin, disaster and Calamity! The Reason this is, is because it is a Breath "HooWaH" and an Exclamation of surprise. In my opinion when these Two Syllables are Stressed it can bring a bad connotation to the Name.. add the
י and "He is doing this".
Sort of like the Hebrew version of "god-damnit!"
This is one of the reasons that I have not felt right about The MODERN Pronunciation YaHuWaH.. though I accept it as long as someone isn't trying to Correct me with it.

It is interesting to note that for the most part "Namers" are in agreement over the Pronunciation of the Name of The Son (Our Saviour) IaHUShUA' -looks like this has changed somewhat recently..

  יהושועeven when using the more common spelling יהושע

IaHUShUA'

Our Saviour's Name in Hebrew is יהושועIaHUShUA(read from right to left). 
This is a contraction of two Names; IaHU (the short form of IaHUeH) and HOSheA' (Deliverer or Saviour). This Name Means "IaHUeH Saves!"
                                                      As Salvation can Only come from IaHUeH!!

The Hebrew spelling can be found in Strong's Exhaustive Concordance. 
In ancient Hebrew there were letters that made vowel sounds as well as consonantal. Among these were the Iod, He and the Uaw; making the short i or ee, ah or eh, and oo or o sounds respectively
-Of course the "He" Beginning a Syllable would carry the "H" consonant sound.

HOSheA' (according to Strongs) comes from the root:

OT:3467
yasha` (yaw-shah'); a primitive root; properly, to be open, wide or free, i.e. (by implication) to be safe; causatively, to free or succor:

OT:3442 ישוע
Yeshuwa` (yay-shoo'-ah); for OT:3091; he will save; Jeshua, the name of ten Israelites, also of a place in Palestine:

OT:3091 יהושוע
Yehowshuwa` (yeh-ho-shoo'-ah); or Yehowshu` a (yeh-ho-shoo'-ah); from OT:3068 and OT:3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (i.e. Joshua), the Jewish leader: -Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua.

*************

The claim has been made by Expert speakers of Modern Hebrew that this Name IaHUShUA' means "IaH Himself is Crying for Help".
I don't really see a problem with it, as IaHUeH indeed Cries and Pleads with His People.

Jer 9:1 Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!
KJV

He Does Need our Help... To Save Us!

Quote:
YaHU = YaH + VAV which is reflexive, and thus, "Yah Himself".
yasha is the QAL verb for that means "to save"
yeshuah is the noun form (salvation).
shua is the Pual form of the same verb, which inverts who does/recieves the action.  In the Pual form, the object is performing the verb on the subject, whereas in the QAL, the subject is performing the verb on the object.
 
So "YaHU" (Yah Himself) + "shua" (usually translated "crying for help" or could be interpretted as "being saved") is the result of combining these.  It hurts my ears to hear this.
(endquote)


I believe that The Original Hebrew is a Purer Tongue.. so that is where i find myself trying to go. But not without difficulties since there is no representation except the written Word in Scripture...
          Modern Hebrew is a very recent invention and very confused.

There was a man named HOSheA BEN NUN.
Num 13:16 These are the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.
KJV

this name was IaHUShuA'
 יהושע .. a variation of this name used only twice in the Testimony of The Covenant is יהושוע which seems to be the fuller form. So we use IaHUShUA' .. ו is represented by both the "O" and the "U".. I see no difference as it is the same Hebrew letter. But perhaps modern Hebrew Speakers would more easily recognize IaHOShUA.. I need more thought on the matter.
 
An Important Note: Like it or not we all have an "accent" which does affect the way we pronounce words and Names. Some accents or dialects can be hard to understand requiring more attention from the Hearer. This can be very Good!

From FossilisedCustoms.com

Yahushua means “Yah is our salvation”, but His Name was BLOTTED-OUT through the work of the adversary, by way of false teachers

YESHU is acrostic for YEMACH SHMO U’ZIKRO, meaning

“MAY HIS NAME BE BLOTTED-OUT”.  From this Hebrew phrase, this acrostic went into Greek and Latin:

YESHU became YESHUA
YESHUA became YESU
YESU became IESU
IESU became IESOUS
IESOUS became IESUS 

The letter “J” did not exist on this planet until roughly 1530;  the KJV gave the world “JESUS”, the work of Jesuits.

The Talmud refers to Yahushua as JESCHU  (the modern form of YESHU).

****************************************

  Gives a lot to think about. hmmmmm?

Though IeShUA Does Actually Mean "he saves" or "SALVATION".

IaHUShUA' means "IaHUeH is Saving"


Would you like to see an artistic rendering in Ancient Hebrew? Say Yes Please.


We were moved by IaHUeH's Spirit to find the closest representation of the original letters. The Iod is the root of both the "I" (iota) and modern "Y" as well the "J". We believe the "I" is a more correct translation, being closer to the original. 
It is impossible to pronounce the "Y" as in year without first making an almost imperceptible "I" sound as in it or machine. It is likewise impossible to pronounce the "W" as in winter without first making an almost imperceptible "U" as in tune or "O" as in own. 
The Uaw is the root of the "U" "V" and "W". We believe the "U" is a more correct translation, being closer to the original.

It was only afterwards when we had already begun this usage... that we found confirmations and verifications such as the references on this page.

This has been a major Confirmation to me that the Spirit that was guiding me was in Fact none other than IaHUeH!! Because He revealed this to me through Inspiration.. and then led me to find the various verifications. -it is a continuous process till full Restoration.

..

IaHUShUA!

OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY

|| Jehovah (_________).

[The English and common European representation, since the 16th c., of the Hebrew divine name Yhwh. This word (the _sacred tetragrammaton') having come to be considered by the Jews too sacred for utterance, was pointed in the O.T. by the Masoretes with the vowels ' (= a), o, a, of adonai, as a direction to the reader to substitute Adonai for the _ineffable name'; which is actually done by Jerome in the Vulgate translation of Exodus vi. 3, and hence by Wyclif. Students of Hebrew at the Revival of Letters took these vowels as those of the word Yhwh (IHUH, JHVH) itself, which was accordingly transliterated in Latin spelling as IeHoVa(H), i.e. Iehoua(h. It is now held that the original name was IaHUe(H), i.e. Jahve(h, or with the English values of the letters, Yahwe(h, and one or other of these forms is now generally used by writers upon the religion of the Hebrews. The word has generally been understood to be a derivative of the verb hawah to be, to exist, as if _he that is', _the self-existent', or _the one ever coming into manifestation'; this origin is now disputed, but no conjectured derivation which has been substituted has found general acceptance.

The following is cited as the first use of the form Iehoua (Jehova):---1516 P. Galatinus De Arcanis Cath. Veritatis ii. lf. xlviij, Non enim he quatuor litere [yhwh] si, ut punctate sunt, legantur, Ioua reddunt: sed (ut ipse optime nosti) Iehoua efficiunt.]

1. The principal and personal name of God in the Old Testament; in English versions usually represented by _the LORD'. Hence in modern Christian use, = God, the Almighty.

1530 Tindale Exod. vi. 3, I appeared vnto Abraham Isaac and Iacob an allmightie God: but in my name Iehouah [Wyclif Adonay] was I not knowne vnto them.

1539 Bible (Great) Ps. lxxxiii. 18 They shall know that thou (whose name is Iehoua) art only the most hyest ouer all the earth.

***Perhaps your question was invoked by the late medieval form Jehova? - which however is based on wrong vocalisation.
Note that the V in that form stems from Latin, expressing the W sound, not our modern V sound, and the J expressing the Y sound, not the modern English J.
The Hebrew divine name YHWH, so with W, sounded like Yahweh.
In Greek the name was transliterated _iaoue_ (Clement of Alexandria) or even _iabe_ (Theodoret); as in Greek, 'ou' or 'b' came closest to w, and they could not render the Hebrew H in the middle of words either.
The short or poetic form of YHWH was Yahu, in Greek lettering transliterated as _iaO_.So any resemblance between Yahweh/Yahu and Jove (iovis) is not really big.

Q: Jupiter (= iov-+pater) of course is formed like Greek Zeus pater, Sanskrit Dyaus pita, i.e. IndoEuropean *Dieus phater, but where does the first element (iov-, Jove) stems from? Does it tie in with the others (Dieus etc)? But why the disappearing act of the D(j)? Bit off topic I suppose, but I know some Classicists are lurking on ANE as well.

kind regards,

PostScript (follow-up)

The linguists told me that the loss of D in Diovis (which ties in with Zeus =Djews, Di[w]os)/Dyaus/Dieus like I thought) is indeed a bit irregular, but certain. For the comparison of Jove and Jehovah [often made by esoterics!] not only ignores the true vocalization of the Hebrew name, but also the oldest form of the Latin name: in *Old* Latin the Roman god was called Diespiter (*Diov-pater, from Indo-European *diou-pHte:r) and Diovis (*Dioue-, from the I-E root *dyeu-/*deiw-, "radiant, noble"), which only *later* became Juppiter and Iovis (Jove).

THE NAME OF G-D
John Steed (Coffs Harbour)

I write in reply to the anonymous article The Name of God in the last issue. The author listed a number of texts preceded by the statement: After wrestling with these doubts in my mind, I decided to be guided by Gods Word, and sat down and searched the scriptures for some light on this subject. I did not find just one name but a number of names. I agree wholeheartedly that we should be guided by the Scriptures in this important matter. But unfortunately the author has been misled by the dishonesty of the translators who have substituted the word Lord for the Tetragrammaton. The word Lord bears no relationship to the meaning of the Tetragrammaton, it is not a translation but a blatant substitution on level with the replacement of the Sabbath with Sunday worship - check this for yourself. We must never forget that in English we have translations only, we must always check back to the real thing, the Hebrew, to find the truth.
If we examine these same texts with the Tetragrammaton restored and improved translation I am sure you will see a different conclusion.

EX. 3:14 I will be what I will be - Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, I will be sent me to you.

The Hebrew phrase here translated as I will be what I will be is eyeh asher eyeh and it is a statement by the Heavenly Father about Himself. Yes, it is His personal name, but it is in the first person. It means, as the author of the article correctly points out, that He will fulfil ALL our needs, He will become whatever and whoever we need - Saviour, Healer, Provider, etc.

EX. 3:15 YHWH, Mighty One of your fathers, the Mighty One of Abraham, the Mighty One of Yitzchak, the Mighty One of Yaakov, has sent to you. This is My name forever and My remembrance to all generations.

YHWH, the Tetragrammaton, is the I will be statement in the third person and present tense - He is or The Existent One.

YHWH is the name by which we can call upon our Creator - it is used around 7,000 times in Scripture.

EX. 6:3 I appeared to Abraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaakov, as El Shaddai (Mighty One All Powerful). And My name YHWH did I not reveal Myself to them?

This verse has been sorely mistranslated in the past. The Hebrew does not say that El Shaddai is a name, rather it is the role in which YHWH revealed Himself to the fathers.

EX. 34:14 For YHWH, whose name is jealous, is a jealous Mighty One.

This text does not mean that we are to call Him by the name Jealous. Rather it means that His name - YHWH - is a jealous name. How is it jealous? It means that He fills ALL our needs, it leaves NO ROOM for other mighty ones! Read the first command - EX. 20:3.
DE. 28:58 ....to fear this esteemed and awesome name, YHWH, your Mighty One.

PS. 68:4 Sing to the Mighty One, sing praises to His name. Raise up a highway for Him who rides through the deserts, by His name Yah and exult before Him.
Yah (YH) is simply an abbreviation of YHWH, it is used in verse, and in personal names (EliYah, IsaYah, etc.), though the more common abbreviation is Yahu (YHW) as in Yahushaphat (Jehoshaphat), Yahudah (Judah), etc.
IS. 47:4 Our Redeemer, YHWH of hosts is His name, the Set-apart One of Israel.

IS.57:15 For thus declares the high and exalted One who dwells forever, whose name is set-apart (holy).
Again this does not mean that we are to call Him Holy, rather that His name, YHWH, is holy (set-apart). Read the third command - EX. 20:7.

IS. 54:5 For your Maker is your husband, YHWH of hosts is His name, and Set-apart One of Israel is your Redeemer. He is called the Mighty One of all the earth.

All these verses point to our Heavenly Father having only one personal name. Yes He has many, many titles, which can be called names, but these are not the same as a personal name as they demonstrate particular roles that He fills at certain times. But His personal name demonstrates His all-encompassing character, and does so for all time.

I agree with the author, that being children, we like Yahushua can approach Him as Abba (Father), and indeed should do so. But this does not remove the fact that our Father has a name, a name which we can use to introduce Him to a world that is ignorant of Him. For it is only by His name YHWH that He is differentiated from the false mighty ones of the pagan world.

Yes, there is confusion as to how the Tetragrammaton is to be pronounced, but it is not true that it is without vowels, Josephus wrote that the name was composed of four vowels, yes vowels, not consonants! The three Hebrew letters that make up the name, Yod, He, and Waw (Vav), while they are used as consonants, actually function more often as long vowels. This means that these letters are self contained and can be pronounced without added vowel points (which only came along a few hundred years ago anyway). Clement testified that the name was pronounced Iaoue, but this was in Greek where there is no H sound.seoj We know from personal names in Scripture that the first three letters (YHW) are pronounced Yahu. Hence the most probable pronunciation is Yahueh (Yah-hoo-eh), though Yahu(h) (silent h), and Yahweh (Yah-weh, not Yah-way), are also possible. The important point is that the pronunciation must convey the correct meaning of He is- Yahueh or Yahu do that.

As mentioned earlier, the removal of the name was a sin comparable to that of the institution of Sunday worship. The third command says: You do not bring the name of YHWH your Mighty One to nought (nothing), for YHWH does not cleanse from guilt the one who brings His name to nought. Deut. 12:2-4 says Completely destroy all the places where the nations which you are dispossessing served their mighty ones...And you shall cut down the carved images of their mighty ones and shall destroy their name out of that place. Do not do so to YHWH your mighty One. The translators followed on from the lead of the Rabbis to replace the name of the Creator with the names of pagan deities in the Scriptures, removing the true name from peoples lips and memories. Their is no reason for us to continue in this sin. It is time to return to YHWH and restore His name to its rightful place.

I see Qumran Bet is no longer with us. They are now "Torah Observant" and still waiting for a promised Mashiyach!
So I will use this graphic to link to a Google Search instead.
