It has been debated about for centuries, even millennia. Some claiming it is “Jehovah” others say “Yahweh” and even more variations have been created. The Jews won’t tell and say they do not know. No one has been certain of the pronunciation, until now. There is now extensive historical Biblical and personal documents written by Rabbi’s which reveal the true way to speak God’s name and the revelation of this truth is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
According to Nehemia Gordon, a Karaite Jew (A Karaite Jew is a Jew who has rejected the oral law of the Rabbis and believes only the written law), has been doing extensive research of personal documents from Jewish Rabbi’s going back hundreds, even thousands of years the proper pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) is Yehovah. Researching these documents uncovered that, even though Jewish Rabbi’s forbade the speaking of God’s name the Rabbi’s would perform a special ceremony once every seven years when they would speak the name of God to their disciples. The secret of the name YHVH is the sequence of the vowels that are used, in order, which is “e, o, a,” becoming “Yehovah.” During this ceremony they make a reference to
Zechariah 14:9 (ESV)
“And the Lord will be king over all the earth. On that day the Lord will be one and his name one.”
Ezekiel 36:22–24 (ESV)
22 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord God: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations to which you came. 23 And I will vindicate the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, and which you have profaned among them. And the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Lord God, when through you I vindicate my holiness before their eyes. 24 I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land.
