YAHWEH (See Yhwh; God)

YAHWEH yä’ wə (יהוה, H3378; LXX Κυριος from the Massoretic treatment as אֲדֹנָי, H151, Lord; Epiphanius and Theodoret ̓Ιαβέ; meaning debated but often tied to the root meaning to be, become). The word Yahweh is a vocalization of the four consonants in the way many scholars think this covenant name for God was pronounced in OT times.
