The Name

   by Reb Gutman Locks   


The Name


Dear Rabbi,

     I am interesting to know exact pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton Y-k-W-k-. I have heard and read many versions such as Yah-H-weh, Ye-ho-vah, Ya-Hu-Wah, Yeh-Wah and so on. Please enlighten me on this matter. Also, I believe I have got Jewish origins however I am not 100% sure about that.


Gutman's reply:

    That Name is never pronounced except by the High Priest on Yom Kippur in the Holy of Holies

Emil insists:

    Dear Rabbi,

The Bible says that's whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered! 

    What is His name? 

Gutman replies:

     Then call on; "The Name", as Jews do, "HaShem."

Emil insists again:

     Well, that's what I do... but is it not worst to use an alternative name instead the original one, in terms of taking the name in vain?

Gutman says:

     You don't call a King by His first Name.

Emil hears:

     I've got your point. Thanks!
