However, you seem to have your mind made-up on what the name is so I don’t want to be the one doing most of the talking. I’ll let that be done by you to defend your ground. Trust me, this does not mean I will be silent on the issue. Let me first offend Mr. Ginsburg study by saying this to you. The man you’re learning from isn’t an Yisra’elite. We should stop right there and not assume what he says to be 100% accurate. I think Josepheus taught us a good lesson in that. So let’s carefully asses the information you’ve provided. But before we get into this I want to point to one small thing. I have never been a member of a sacred name crowd, so if they are affecting me it is indirectly through truth. The sacred name movement has nothing to do with Holman ChristianStudy Bible, which tells us his name is Yahweh, which is short for Yah.
Actually Nearyah, I don't have to prove anything beyond that scholarship, provable facts and Scripture. It is you that has failed to prove anything, other than present an opinion which you expect to be taken as gospel so to speak. Holman Christian Bible is now your proof of paleo hebrew being the actual hebrew aka the actual true scriptures or source for the name? It's based on the same sources as NIV, etc. Nestle Aland, Metzger, Wescott and Hort, etc manuscripts. And that is your research?
I use Strong's, Thayer's, BDB and similar for presentation in the forum or my articles for readers. Higher Truth also sourced the codexes-and gave links to them, dead sea scrolls, B-Hebrew scholars, etc. I would be so bold as to suggest Ginsburg knew quite a bit more than you. Just a feeling I get.
So the issue is that you don't understand how Yeh became Yah, or Yehovah can be contracted to be Yah, 52 times in the KJV?
Well, as was explained, the Name was being protected by those entrusted with keeping the Scriptures. It was well used in Temple times and by the Jews themselves. If the contracted form of Jehovah was inserted --aside from it may just as easily have been written as such in the originals, but, to some it may have made sense to protect it's wrong use by doing a contraction, just as they contracted some of the theophoric names. The thing is, we still see both versions in the Scriptures, just as we see the contracted and not contracted theophoric names. It's not all been hidden away. No big mystery about it. I personally believe that it was not changed but rather, it is what God intended it to be.
One could easily see that Yehovah could be contracted down to Yah by removing 'ehov'.
Now you want proof that Yah or Jah and Jehovah are interchangeable, and Yah/Jah is the contraction of Jehovah?
Keeping in mind that 3050 is Yah and 3068 is Yehovah
3050 > yhh
yâhh transliterated and phonetic spelling yaw
3050 or the contracted form was used 52 times in KJV
only once as Jah > in Psalm 68:4
one time as vehement in Song of Solomon 8:6
the rest -49 times -- it appears to be translated into English as Lord. Of that, only four of those times are found anywhere other than the Psalms. The other times were in Isaiah.
In other words, the Psalms or songs used the contracted Hebrew form for 47 of the 52 times. The use almost appears related to what worked for singing the songs. The Levites of the sons of Kohathites and sons of Korah were given responsibility according to 2 Chronicles 20:19, to sing the songs or hymns of worship and praise of God. David brought in the worship in song, so we can assume, since he wrote a majority of the psalms, it was approved by God. As most would understand, rhythm is necessary in being able to sing something and words, syllables and pauses have to be part of that rhythm. For the contraction to be used mainly in the songs, suggests a plausible reason for it's use.
And please notice that interchangeableness of Jah/Yah the contraction with Jehovah, and notice the various Messianic prophecies fulfilled in Christ in these verses.
