The meaning of the name of YHWH (Yahweh)

Yahweh, the God of the Israelites, whose name was revealed to Moses as four Hebrew consonants (YHWH) called the Tetragrammaton. Although Christian scholars after the Renaissance and Reformation periods used the term Jehovah for YHWH, in the 19th and 20th centuries biblical scholars again began to use the form Yahweh.

In the Hebrew, I Am is also translated as YHWH (Yahweh). Yahweh means the Self-Existent, Eternal God – The Always Existing One as the name I Am means in the Hebrew and Greek. Yahweh is another name of the Lord God depicting characteristics of God’s eternality.

No other deity of any other religion was ever Always Existing. All gods of all cultures always had a beginning, and only Jehovah/Yahweh/I Am was, is, and forever shall be the Always Existing One.
