JeHoVah, YaHWeh and the Lord-Jesus: A Study in the History of Doctrine Anent God’s Name JHVH

Another (currently more usual) alleged derivation of JHVH, is from YaHWeH.   This would mean: “He Who causes to exist and Who maintains in existence.”   That would emphasize not so much the unchangeability of God Himself from and unto all eternity (cf. Malachi 3:6) – but rather the dependent nature of all created existence upon the independent one true God’s Own Being.   Cf. Psalm 33:6-9 & Romans 4:17 & Hebrews 11:3.

JeHoVaH and YaHWeH – as distinct from their transmitted mispronunciations as ’A:donaay – both imply much the same.   God alone is; so He does not ex-ist (or de-pend on anything else).   And all else is not, but only ex-ists in Him Who alone is (Genesis 2:4f & Acts 17:26-28 & Colossians 1:16-17).   For He “alone is JEHOVAH.”   Psalm 83:18.
