One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The Hebrew name of God transliterated in four letters as YHWH or JHVH and articulated as Yahweh or Jehovah.
- ‘At the heart of the theological inflection is the Tetragrammaton, the four-lettered name that consists of the Hebrew consonants yod, he, waw, and he.’
- ‘In the Cabala, the Quaternical system is the Tetragrammaton, the four-letter name of God, commonly pronounced Yahweh or Jehovah.’
- ‘The most frequently used names in the Bible are the Tetragrammaton, and Elohim.’
- ‘Similarly, it is customary to write Yehudah with an aleph rather than a final hey, lest one accidentally leave out the letter dalet and write the Tetragrammaton.’
- ‘Twenty-six is the numerical value of the letters of the sacred name of God in Hebrew, of the Tetragrammaton.’
Greek, neuter of tetragrammatos ‘having four letters’, from tetra- ‘four’ + gramma, grammat- ‘letter’.
