(Video published 31-OCT-2017) God’s name is not Yahweh – Proof from Jewish Rabbis :
Extracts / Notes copied from the video – go to the following time stamps on the time scale :
Sages transmit the four-letter name to their disciples once in a seven-year period. (Babylonian Talmud, Kiddushin 71a / Rabbah Bar Bar Chanah, c. 250-300)
- __:__: Question #43: A certain sage has been uttering the name according to [its] letters and a certain rabbi rebuked him for this. But [the sage] was stubborn in his actions… (Joseph Ibn Tzayach, 15th Century)
The vowels of the Name itself are hidden… its vowels are the secret of the Tetragrammaton. (Elijah of Vilna, 18th Century)
[« This is my name forever » Exodus 3 :15]. There is also a secret here received by tradition in the vowels of « this is my name forever (Le’olam – לְעוֹלָם) », for they are the vowels of the Great Name. (Menachem Tziyoni, 14th Century)
Its mnemonic is « Who in heaven (shach’’ak) can measure up to You… » (Ps. 89 :6-7)
([Sheva Cholam Kamatz], Menachem Tziyoni, 14th Century)
Yehovah (Sheva Cholam Kamatz)
Know, my beloved, how extremely difficult it is to put things like this in writing and even more so a letter sent about from place to place…[concerning] the vowels of the Tetragrammaton, which are Sheva Cholam Kamatz… (Meir Mahar’’am of Lublin, 1608)
I found in the words of my grandfather… our teacher Rabbi Asher [Lemel], head of the Beth Din of Krakow… he wrote a holy book… called Emek Ha-Brachah, but because of its immense holiness it was never printed… that it not be used by those who are not worthy. (Meir Mahar’’am of Lublin, 1608)
This is what it says in chapter 34 : …[concerning] the Tetragrammaton …its vowels received from Sinai are Sheva Cholam Kamatz…. (Meihr Mahar’’am of Lublin, 1608, quoting Asher of Krakow, 16th Century)
I have one request, that you hide this letter in a pure and holy place and not allow it to be passed around here and there… (Meir Mahar’’am of Lublin, 1608)
If the vowels in the Tetragrammton were indeed the vowels of Adonai, precision would have rquired putting a Chataf-Patach under the Yod for the Aleph of Adonai… (Jacob Bachrach, 1896)
According to the rulings that have come down to us, there is no prohibition from the Torah to speak the Name the way it is written. However, the custom not to pronounce the Name the way it is written is very old… Thus… it is not right to [pronounce the Name], but there is no prohibition from the Torah… (Jacob Bachrach, 1896)
There was a time, and there shall again be a time (a time when all the peoples, all of them, will call on the name of Y’’Y, and Y’’Y will be one and His name will be one)… for this [tradition of] reading what is not written [i.e. Adonai] will be completely abolished and then we will all read it the way it is written [Yehovah]… (Jacob Bachrach, 1896)

Pronouncing the Almighty’s Personal Name:
The Aleppo Codex (see photo) and apparently at least 90 Hebrew manuscripts have the vowels for the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) as per the introduction to the Chumash – Stone Edition (see photo also).
You may note in the image from the Stone Chumash, that the Orthodox Jews are instructed by the author to NEVER pronounce His name as it should be pronounced! You might ask why? There are a great many issues with Orthodox (or Akiva) Judaism (as opposed to the true faith of Yeshua Judaism), but here I believe is a mistaken and mis-guided attempt to avoid blaspheming the Name of the Almighty.
As explained in the ‘duolingo’ article (link below) these vowels are ‘shva’ (pronounced ‘e’), Cholam (pronounced ‘o’) and Kamatz (pronounced ‘a’), giving the pronounciation of the Almighty’s name as ‘Yehovah’.
While there are many who dispute this, having listened to Nehemia Gordon and after doing some research of my own, I am fairly persuaded.
In the linked article:
“Because of Arab influence on Hebrew, some pronounce the vav letter as a W and call it a waw.”
That’s why you see the word Yahweh instead of Yahveh and the transliteration YHWH instead of YHVH.
Nehemiah Gordon’s recent research (2016-2017) proves that “It’s a Vav,” as one of his blog posts is aptly titled. He shares evidence from the scrolls of Jeremiah, 1 Kings and Nehemiah that vet (always a V sound) and vav are equivalent because the word for “back” (gav) is written alternatively with either letter. Check out in the Hebrew Aleppo Codex Ezekiel 23:35 (“back”/gav spelled with vav) vs Ezekiel 43:13 (“back”/gav with soft bet/vet) and 1 Kings 14:9 (“back” gav spelled with vet). Nehemiah 9:26 (“back”/gav with vav).
He also debunks the idea that Arab or Ashkenazi/Yiddish influence led to the vav being pronounced as a W universally. He lists six Jewish communities (without European influence) who nevertheless pronounced the vav as a V: Kurdish Jews, Syrian Jews, Egyptian Jews, Persian Jews, Moroccan Jews, Algerian Jews. This is in contradiction to five communities who pronounce it as a W due to Arab influence: the Yemenite Jews, Baghdadi Jews, Libyan Jews, Tunisian Jews, Atlas Mountain Jews.”
I think His Name is important – at least according to the Tanakh:
Zechariah 13:9 “… They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say: They are My people, and they will say: “Yehovah is our God.”
Ezekiel 39:7 “So I will make My holy name known among My people Israel and will no longer allow it to be profaned. Then the nations will know that I am Yehovah, the Holy One in Israel.”
Of course, knowing Him and being obedient to Him is much more important than knowing how to properly pronounce His personal name.
If we truly know Yeshua as Mashiach ben Yosef. we will also be obedient to his Father and ours.
