Adonai

Paul Wilbur - Praise Adonai

The name Adonai, translated "Lord" (only the "L" capitalized), occurs approximately 300 times in the Old Testament. It's interesting to note that it is almost always used in the plural possessive form meaning "My Lords". This, once again, confirms the concept of The Trinity as found in the name "Elohim". Also consider the fact that this same word is used of men approximately 215 times in the Old Testament and is predominantly translated as "master". Note, however, that, when used of men, it is always used in the singular form.

Paul Wilbur - Shalom Jerusalem

The Hebrew word SHALOM is understood around the world to mean peace. But peace is only one small part of the meaning of the word SHALOM. Here in Israel, even though we don't have much in the way of peace, we use the word SHALOM on a daily basis. We use it to greet people with, and we use it to bid farewell to people. However, SHALOM means much more than peace, hello or goodbye.

Shalom comes from the root verb Shalom meaning to be complete, perfect and full. In modern Hebrew the obviously related word Shelem means to pay for, and Shulam means to be fully paid.

Sar SHALOM (Prince of Peace) is one of the descriptive names the Bible uses to indicate the ministry and personality of the Messiah: Isaiah 9:6 - The Son of God is completely perfect in all things.

So in essence, when you speak out the word SHALOM - you are not only proclaiming peace, but all the above meanings of the word over that person - that's a mighty blessing!!!

Shalom aleichem   is a greeting in Hebrew, meaning "Peace be upon you". The appropriate response is "Aleichem shalom".

The greeting is used in plural - so as to greet multiple people - even when greeting a lone individual. One religious explanation for this is that one greets both a body and a soul.

Shalom Aleichem is also a traditional song sung Friday night at the beginning of Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath. In this case the words are used to welcome in the angels who accompany a person home on the eve of the Sabbath. It can be sung with many different melodies, but it is always sung with great happiness and joy.

The song in Hebrew transliteration is as follows:

Shalom aleichem malachei ha-shareit malachei elyon, mi-melech malchei ha-melachim Ha-Kadosh Baruch Hu.

Bo'achem le-shalom malachei ha-shalom malachei elyon, mi-melech malchei ha-melachim Ha-Kadosh Baruch Hu.

Barchuni le-shalom malachei ha-shalom malachei elyon, mi-melech malchei ha-melachim Ha-Kadosh Baruch Hu.

Tzeit'chem le-shalom malachei ha-shalom malachei elyon, mi-melech malchei ha-melachim Ha-Kadosh Baruch Hu.

The words to the song translate:

Peace upon you, ministering angels, messengers of the Most High, of the Supreme King of Kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. Come in peace, messengers of peace, messengers of the Most High, of the Supreme King of Kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. Bless me with peace, messengers of peace, messengers of the Most High, of the Supreme King of Kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. May your departure be in peace, messengers of peace, messengers of the Most High, of the Supreme King of Kings, the Holy One, blessed be He.

Shalom could be also interpreted as "The Peace": a peace personally felt, a deeply calmness and mental balance, which is said to come to those who appreciate God.

Psalm 148

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
   praise Him in the heights!
Praise Him, all His angels;
   praise Him, all His host!


Praise Him, sun and moon;
   praise Him, all you shining stars!
Praise Him, you highest heavens,
   and you waters above the heavens!


Let them praise the Name of the Lord,
   for He commanded and they were created.
He established them for ever and ever;
   He fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed.
*

Praise the Lord from the earth,
   you sea monsters and all deeps,
fire and hail, snow and frost,
   stormy wind fulfilling his command!

Mountains and all hills,
   fruit trees and all cedars!
Wild animals and all cattle,
   creeping things and flying birds!

Kings of the earth and all peoples,
   princes and all rulers of the earth!
Young men and women alike,
   old and young together!

Let them praise the Name of the Lord,
   for His Name alone is exalted;
   His glory is above earth and heaven.
He has raised up a horn for his people,
   praise for all His faithful,
   for the people of Israel who are close to Him.
Praise the Lord!

These are the days of Elijah,
Declaring the word of the Lord:
And these are the days of Your servant Moses,
Righteousness being restored.
And though these are days of great trial,
Of famine and darkness and sword,
Still, we are the voice in the desert crying
'Prepare ye the way of the Lord!'

Behold He comes riding on the clouds,
Shining like the sun at the trumpet call;
Lift your voice, it's the year of jubilee,
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes.

These are the days of Ezekiel,
The dry bones becoming as flesh;
And these are the days of Your servant David,
Rebuilding a temple of praise.
These are the days of the harvest,
The fields are as white in Your world,
And we are the labourers in Your vineyard,
Declaring the word of the Lord!

There's no God like Jehovah.
There's no God like Jehovah!

Days Of Elijah

El Shaddai (is one of the Judaic names of God. See El (God) and Names of God in Judaism. It is normally translated "God Almighty Who is all sufficient".

El Shaddai:

El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
El-Elyon na Adonia,
Age to age You're still the same,
By the power of the Name.
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
Erkamka na Adonai,
We will praise and lift You high,
El Shaddai.

Through Your love and through the ram,
You saved the son of Abraham;
Through the power of your hand,
Turned the sea into dry land.
To the outcast on her knees,
You were the God who really sees,
And by Your might,
You set Your children free.

El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
El-Elyon na Adonia,
Age to age You're still the same,
By the power of the Name.
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
Erkamka na Adonai,
We will praise and lift You high,
El Shaddai.

Through the years You've made it clear,
That the time of Christ was near,
Though the people couldn't see
What Messiah ought to be.
Though Your Word contained the plan,
They just could not understand
Your most awesome work was done
Through the frailty of Your Son.

El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
El-Elyon na Adonai,
Age to age You're still the same,
By the power of the Name.
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
Erkamka na Adonai,
I will praise and lift You high,
El Shaddai.

El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
El-Elyon na Adonai,
Age to age You're still the same,
By the power of the name.
El Shaddai, El Shaddai,
Erkamka na Adonai,
I will praise and lift You high,
El Shaddai.

Where did the Name Jehovah come from?

1jehovah1.gif picture by nan_75

In Exodus 3: 14-15, it says, "And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM,  and He said, "Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you; this is My Name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations."

The ancient Hebrew used no vowels.  The total pronounciation of YHWH  was quickly lost.  When the Masoretes in late medieval times decided to make the Hebrew more readiable by adding vowels, they changed YHWH to JHVH (there was no J  in the Hebrew).  They used the vowels they assigned to Adonai.  Thus they created "Jehovah" to be used in place of YHWH.

The Masoretes  were groups of scribes and Bible scholars working between the 7th and 11th centuries, based primarily in Israel in the cities of Tiberias and Jerusalem, as well as in Babylonia. Each group compiled a system of pronunciation and grammatical guides in the form of diacritical notes on the external form of the Biblical text in an attempt to fix the pronunciation, paragraph and verse divisions and cantillation.

Prouncounciation of YHWH

Since Hebrew was written without vowels in ancient times, the four consantants YHWH contain no clue to their original prounciation.  Hebrew-Adonai (Lord)

Today's Bibles Translate YHWH as Lord

Each time you see the name LORD or GOD in all caps in the King James Version of the Bible, it is a translation of YHWH.

God's and Jesus' Names

1jehovahEX_6_4-1671_KJV-3.png picture by nan_75

YHWH  is often to as the Ineffiable Name, the Unutterable Name or the Distinctive Name.  Liguistically, it is associated with the Hebrew root Heh-Yod-Heh, "to be", which shows that God is Eternal.
