What is the greek word for Jehovah?
The word "Jehovah" is the German translation of the Hebrew word "YHWH/Yahweh". "Jehovah" entered the English language in the nineteenth century, when German scholars were at the forfront of biblical research. The modern Catholic bible would probably not have Jehovah but either the actual "YHWH" or "Lord".
Hades is not the devil. Hades is the Greek god of the Underworld. The Greek gods were sometimes considered as mentally weak as humans, and could cave to temptations. They were not limitless in knowledge. Jehovah is the Jewish name for God, and according to their beliefs God is capable of anything and everything. He is endlessly intelligent. Thus Jehovah would destroy Hades.
Yes, it can be found in Psalms 83 v 18 in the King James Version. "Jehovah" is an English word, the bible was originally not however written in English but was written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. "Jehovah" (like Jesus, Jerusalem, John and Joseph) is an English transliteration of the Hebrew personal name for God written in the Hebrew letters that correspond to the roman letters YHWH. This name (translated in English as" Jehovah") was…
There is no Hebrew word Jehovah. This is a Christianized version of the four consonants of God's true name. See Tetragrammaton for more information. Most (but not all) words referring to God in Hebrew are masculine, but this is largely due to the grammar of Hebrew. In Judaism, God is not literally considered a male with male reproductive functions.
Jehovah is a poor English translation of the Hebrew name of God יהוה (YHWH). Some also translate His name to Yahweh. Which is slightly closer but was originally a word that the Hebrews considered sacred and unable to pronounce. Even the word Jehovah when originally translated was not pronounced the way most preachers in America say it today. It should be pronounced closer the sound YHWH with the J having a sound similar to the…
Well the answer is both, JEHOVAH is both God & Jesus. JEHOVAH, The Great I AM, is the creator of the world. "In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1). Jesus is the creator, "All things were made by HIM (the Word or Jesus), and without HIM (the Word or Jesus) was not anything made that was made." (John 1).
No. Christ is Greek for "anointed one" the same as the Hebrew word messiah. Jehovah was a mistranslation of YHWH (ancient Hebrew did not write vowels). Modern scholars believe that it was pronounced 'Yahweh', but it came to be considered too holy to speak so the vowel points are uncertain. Jewish tradition is to read the work Adonai in place of YHWH out of respect for the name of God.
No. This word is a Christian mispronunciation of the Hebrew letters YHVH, which is the name of G-d, but is forbidden to be pronounced out loud. Jehovah was created by accident by the first Christians to learn Hebrew in the Middle Ages, who didn't understand the Jewish tradition of placing the vowel indicators for the word Adonai around the tetragrammaton (YHVH). The word Jehovah has never been used by Jews.
The name Jehovah (yehôvâh) appears only 4 times in the KJV Bible, the original Hebrew word יהוה appears 6528 times in the Old Testament and is usually translated LORD with all capital letters in the KJV, to differentiate it from Lord with only the first letter in capital, which is a translation of another word ('ădônây). In the new testament both words are translated kurios with no distinction in the Greek, but the translators sometimes…
