About the Name


About the Name

From another feed the question was asked;

Did Yahshua speak our Father’s personal name?

My response was;

The Better question is did YHWH command His personal name?

The answer is Yes – In Commandment & Covenant

Exo 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of YHWH thy Elohim in vain; for YHWH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

07723. awv shav’, shawv
or shav {shav}; from the same as 7722 in the sense of desolating; evil (as destructive), literally (ruin) or morally (especially guile); figuratively idolatry (as false, subjective), uselessness (as deceptive, objective; also adverbially, in vain):–false(-ly), lie, lying, vain, vanity.

vain = shav’ = uselessness ie non-use

The Aaronic Benediction

Num 6:22 And YHWH spake unto Moses, saying,
Num 6:23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,
Num 6:24 YHWH bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25 YHWH make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26 YHWH lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Num 6:27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

Saying Adonai makes this an Ironic Benediction

Its NOT what Moses wrote!


Then was posed

@ What about when satan tempted Yeshua in the wilderness when Yeshua said, “…It is written again, You shall not tempt the Lord your Elohim.”

My response;

S— Excellent point – @ What about when satan tempted Yeshua in the wilderness when Yeshua said, “…It is written again, You shall not tempt YHWH your Elohim.”

**Mt 4:7 Yahshua said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

direct quote?

Dt 6:16 Ye shall not tempt YHWH your Elohim, as ye tempted him in Massah.

** Lk 4:8 And Yahshua answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the ‘Lord thy God’, and him only shalt thou serve.

direct quote?

Dt 6:13 Thou shalt fear YHWH your Elohim, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name

Dt 10:20 Thou shalt fear YHWH your Elohim; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

LORD in Mosaic Hebrew = YHWH – Yahweh

LORD thy God = YHWH / Yahweh – God = Elohim

Tho Mt 4:7 & Lu 4:8 are conveyed in Greek – The direct quote of Yahshua is Deut. Hebrew

Meaning that;
Yahshua did speak the Father’s Name YHWH – Yahweh

Did you catch that?

“and shalt swear by his name”

“and swear by his name.”

From Torah – From the verses Quoted by Yahshua

So should we use His Name? – Respectfully YES!



Yahshua did not follow the Rabbinic Tradition regarding the ban on speaking the Name! We all know what He said about the Pharisee’s vain traditions!


Did some more research
יְהוֹשֻׁעַ יְהוֹשׁוּעַ
yehôshûa‛ yehôshûa‛
yeh-ho-shoo’-ah, yeh-ho-shoo’-ah
From H3068 and H3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (that is, Joshua), the Jewish leader: – Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua. Compare H1954, H3442.
This does seem to uphold the extra ‘o’ or ‘u’ sound – however as I have said this leaves no opening for the usha written or vocalized pronunciation
Gen_49:18 I have waitedH6960 for thy salvation,H3444 O YHWH.H3068
Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: – deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
Again shua Not usha
So –
Yahweh/Ah/ah and Yahshua can become
Yahuweh/Ah/ah and Yahushua but never usha
Barring ‘usha’ you do have a choice within these confines
