Names of God – YHWH Shammah

MONDAY

THE NAMES OF GOD

There are only two more Hebrew Names of God. Once we have completed this we will look at the New Testament Names of God.

Word: YHWH Shammah

Translated: the LORD is there!

Use: The only use of this Name of God is found in Ezekiel 48:35 and is found in a section dealing with the future restoration of Israel. When the kingdom is restored to the followers of God in the Land of Canaan, a new Temple will be constructed (Ez 40:1-43:27) and a new worship of God on earth will be temporarily reinstated (Ez 44:1-46:24). The peoples of the world will flock to Jerusalem for the worship of God and thus the name YHWH Shammah because they will be worshipping the Only and Universal God whose ‘house’ is in Jersualem.

NAU Ezekiel 48:35The city shall be 18,000 cubits round about; and the name of the city from that day shall be, ‘The LORD is there.'”

 

NIV Ezekiel 48:35 “The distance all around will be 18,000 cubits. “And the name of the city from that time on will be: THE LORD IS THERE.”


KJV Ezekiel 48:35 It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, The LORD is there.
