365 Names of God: YHVH

This name of God, the most holy to Jews, is that by which God asked Moses to introduce Him to the Israelites in the Book of Exodus. Lacking vowels, it is literally unpronounceable; the transliterated spelling is YHVH. Where it appears in Torah or prayer, hardcore Jews instead say “Adonai” (my Lord) or “Hashem” (The Name) and associate thsi name with God’s merciful (as opposed to judgmental) aspect. Those qualities seem apropos for our first installment in the 365 Names Of God Project. May the MultiMonickered please bless my efforts.

Each day of 2011, Metaphorager.Net will feature a different name for that-which-some-people-call-God. Some will be original, others traditional. If you want to see your favorite here, send it to scoop@sonic.net with the subject line “365 Names” and whether or not you want to be credited.
