isis,

The only problem is that calling Jehovah by name is going to offend some people becasue it is against their religious beliefs to do so. However, God is refered to by many names in the OT and using the actual Hebrew words and the best English translation would be an educationns

You know as I was posting, I started to think... or would it be Yahweh? I'm not sure if there is a difference.

Which religious group(s) cannot name their creator? Just curious.

Jews traditionally do not say God's name -- YHWH and a Rabbi friend of mine has a problem with anything except LORD . Also he is forever emailing me when I forget and put the "o" in G-d.'

When I studied hebrew (a denomination requirement) I studied with a woman rabbi and she ask me not to say God's name out loud when we came to it in our reading. I remember thinking -- "That's the only word I recognize easily!"

It seems to me that I remember some eastern or mystical religion that also refused to utter "the" name -- but I don't remember that for sure...

peace --
